So ok. Doing this drawing of one of my OCs. The theme is "Fairy Tales" and she wishes for a baby. SO I wanted to do some kind of spin off like that.

I know of, of course, Sleeping Beauty and Rapunzel but I was wondering of anything else..?

I also read something yesterday of one where the women was suppose to get pregnant from eating a flower petal but because she ate the whole flower, she gave birth to an animal.

Any help would be nice. heart
OOOOHH AMAZINNNN!

There's all kinds of fairy tales involving pregnancies, as beginning, end or plot point. There's humans birthing animals and vice-versa, objects/animals becoming human because someone wanted a baby, changeling tales... way too many to list. Anything specific in mind or just that and the flower/animal thing?

That's a site with tales form all over the world if you want to browse through it for ideas.

Pregnancy is really, really common in all sorts of mythology and folklore. Based on your two choices, I would say look at The Seven Swans, which you may have heard of, and The Silver Hands, which you probably haven't. Also, if you simply need a small child, not necessarily a pregnancy, try The Juniper Tree, which has both a pregnancy, two small children, murder, cannibalism, magic, revenge and (to my sick, twisted mind, at least) a fair amount of very grim humor.

There is also snow white, cinderella, little red cap, and that's all i can remember.
as a person before me said, you could read some mythology, e.g. "Poseidon made Minos' wife, Pasiphae fall madly in love with the white bull. She ordered the Athenian inventor Daedalus to make a wooden cow, which would be hollow from inside. Daedalus made a masterpiece and covered it with a hide of a cow. Pasiphae got inside the cow, after which it was set in the meadows. Assuming it to be a real cow, the bull was lured into copulation with her. Eventually, Pasiphae gave birth to Minotaur." - the birth of the minotaur in Greek Mythology
