Weird dreams have started ...

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I'm a little sad that I haven't yet had a baby dream about this wee one yet, but WOW has the weirdness factor ramped up in the dreams I AM having.

Last night I dreamed about dd#1, who is 6 and by nature very cautious and likes things very quiet. In my dream, she was the height of my 3 y/o, and was in the back yard, cranking up the CHAIN SAW?!?! Over and over, she'd pull the rope-thing to crank it, then get scared. I'd run outside and shut it off and tell her to leave it alone, then go back inside. A couple minutes later, she'd crank the thing up again. I was FREAKING OUT (duh!) and dh was like, what's the big deal, it's not like she can pick it up or anything. And kept saying to him, SHE DOESN'T HAVE TO PICK IT UP ... SEE THAT CHAIN RIGHT THERE, you know, the one that can CUT THROUGH A TREE!?!?

Good grief, what a wacko dream.

Please tell me I'm not the only one having weird dreams ... SHARE!

I wish I was sleeping well enough to dream

I am typically a great dreamer and since I found out I was pregnant..NO DREAMS!! It could be because I am sooooo tired that I pass out as soon as I hit the pillow. It could also be the fact that I have to pee 2 to 3 times a night compared to pre-pg 0 times a night. I have been waiting for the dreams to start and get weird but NOTHING. Not one single dream yet!! Anyone else ever have this?

I had a bad dream last night it was so creepy, it involved a guy with a machine gun trying to break into our house where we live now, very scary dream.

Yep, I'm having tons more dreams than usual. Yesterday I dreamed about DH's friend that lives in another state and I've met maybe twice. He was visiting our house and writing all over the walls with blue pencil and I was getting ...

I also had a labor dream last night. I dreamed early labor and then things just stopped and I kept trying to get them started again. We had lots of errands and stuff to run though, and I was scared I was going to give birth in a public bathroom somewhere.

My husband dreamed that there was a beaver crawling around under the carpet though...I don't think I can top that.

I normally have very vivid and strange dreams, and I haven't noticed any more quantity than usual. They also haven't been weirder (that would be difficult), but they have been scarier. It has been pretty constant that whenever I have gotten sick, I've had two main symptoms: exhaustion and nightmares. I know being pregnant isn't like being sick, but it shares the commmonality of your body working hard internally. So I have been exhausted and had one nightmare.

I had a really absolutely horrible dream a few nights ago (before I even got my BFP) that I won't tell you about because it was too terrible, but it definitely counted as a nightmare. The kind where you wake up crying and shaking. My husband cuddled me and made me feel a little better, but I couldn't sleep anymore and was grumpy all day. I hope that those won't continue for too long.

Ah, beaver-under-the-carpet dreams . . . that's great! That's right up there with my normal dream weirdness, an award for your husband!

Last pregnancy I didn't notice any ramp-up in the dreams, but this time I definitely have. I had 3 vivid and agitating dreams last night:

1. Trying desperately to figure out the train and bus schedules to get out of a train station in a remote part of Canada, because I was going to be late for work
2. Helping an assassin take care of this guy who was trying to attack us all and our families (this one was obviously disturbing)
3. A guy rear-ended me in my new car and then stole the car. Guess I'm a little protective of the car

Hmmm....I haven't noticed any weird dreams. But I hardly ever remembered my dreams pre-pg either.

Or it could be that I am waking up about 3-4 times during the night, so I haven't really been getting to that dream stage. This lack of sleep thing is really aggravating. I am such a good sleeper...some would say I am too good of a sleeper...DH may even call it "lazy".

Yes, DREAMS!

I generally have a fair number of wacky dreams, so the onslaught since I've been pregnant hasn't thrown me for too much of a loop. I've started typing them out on my computer as soon as I wake up so that I have some sort of proof. ...who knows, maybe there will be some fodder for a short story

The truly weird thing has been SEX DREAMS! I've been woken by several lately...which is definitely weird for me. I haven't felt in-the-mood during waking hours at all, but when I'm woken by one of these dreams, I can't help but attack my husband Needless to say, he's pretty happy.

Last night Michael Jackson was in my dream...

I just had the worst night of sleep. Every terrible, vivid dream I could possibly have I had. Every fear inside of me was realised in dream land.

I dreamed about Butter Bean last night (the girls nicknamed the new baby LOL). I had the baby whilst driving down the road. A healthy but TINY baby (7 lb. and change) with an itty-bitty placenta. Weird! I don't remember looking in the dream, but I got a girl vibe. (Shhhh, don't tell dh ... he's desperate for a boy this time!) Doesn't mean anything, thought ... all my baby dreams with my 2nd pregnancy were of boys, and POOF! another girl!

We called my 5th Butter Bean for a while after birth because, well, she kind of looked like him

i have been having outrageous dreams too. my kids and dh are really getting a kick out of hearing about them. night before last, i dreamt that i was teaching my 14 yo son to drive and he couldnt figure out how to start the car, and darth vader was walking toward us, and i was like, come on luke, we've got to go, start the car! and he couldnt, and i couldnt find the ignition button and vader reaches in the driver's window and steals a bag of nuts off the dash board and leaves. then last night i dreamt that my dh and i built a big nest outside the window, then he was sitting in it- BECAUSE HE WAS A DUCK- and i was talking to him (of course he couldnt talk back) and all of a sudden there were 4 fuzzy eaglets in the nest, and i said, honey- look! where did those come from?!

LOL, I have to admit I had no idea there was already a PERSON named Butter Bean. They started calling the wee one that because the NP I saw at my first prenatal told me that the baby was about the size/shape of a butter bean right then. They thought that was hilarious and the name stuck.

I think I'm another one who isn't sleeping well enough to have many dreams these days.

I had a fun one this morning. I was at a club with my friends (and sucking back the martinis) and everyone got up to go somewhere, leaving me to hold the table. I kept getting crowded over, so by the end I was in a table by the door, instead of in front of the stage where we were originally. Here's the fun bit: my alarm went off and I kept hitting snooze because I didn't want to wake up until someone came back to hold the table. Finally one of my friends did, and I woke up from the dream. I had snoozed for half an hour!!

Woo ... had another birth dream about the wee one last night. I was in a hospital with my doula and some doctor. He was trying to convince me that I had too much amniotic fluid and it was going to cause an embolism. My doula was rolling her eyes and correcting his "facts," but I ended up agreeing to ARM. The waters just poured out, and then I barely pushed (I was sitting up on the side of the bed) and caught my baby. It looked JUST like the baby from my dream the other night ... the baby was smiling at me in both dreams. Once again, I didn't see boy or girl parts, but am still getting girl vibes.

The best part, though, is the sweet smile.
