I thought it might be fun to talk about what wild and crazy pregnant dreams you are having!

My latest vivid one was that I was sleeping on my stomach (ha!) and woke up feeling pressure down there.  I came up to my hands and knees and felt down there.  The baby's head was crowning and I gave a little push.  It didn't hurt a bit.  Out popped a baby boy...no blood, no mess, just a clean umbilical cord and placenta a few minutes later.  No one was alarmed and dh asked if he should call the midwife.  I said no and we all went back to sleep.  Just like nothing happened!  love.gif

I have totally insane dreams every night. But for some reason I can't remember any of them right now. I'll be sure to post my next good one!

post #5 of 24

Last night I dreamed that I had two eggs--maybe chicken eggs, or maybe duck eggs.  In the dream I knew it was my babies birthing day and  things were getting ready to move forward.  The two eggs were precious to me, and for some reason since it was the birthing day I decided to crack them open.  I cracked the first one and saw the little naked bird through the still unbroken shell membrane and immediately knew I had made a mistake.  The bird wasn't ready to be born yet.  In a panic I tried to hold the egg so
that the bird wouldn't fall out.  "Maybe it can just survive in this membrane," I thought.  Then, however, I knew that I couldn't protect this little egg/bird because they would never let me bring it into the hospital.  I was devastated and at about that time I woke up.  So yeah, weird and disturbing dream.  Hopefully I'll remember some good ones soon!

Wow, that is a crazy dream!  I hate when I dreams like that where I feel out of control and wake up upset.  Hopefully you will have a good one soon!

The dreams I am having are SO emotional... and often not in a good way. :( It's like every night is a new set of disturbing nightmares. They're not outright frightening, just really deeply unsettling. I could write a book here about them, because they're often really, REALLY detailed.

Last night I dreamed that DH, the fam and I were walking to visit a friend we knew through DS#2's preschool. We didn't know her *that* well, but wanted a visit. As we approach one of the kids has to pee really really badly, like to the point of peeing themselves. I knock and there's no answer, so I open the door a little and call in, and there's still no answer. DS has to pee super bad so I call in, "We're going to use your bathroom for a sec, I hope that's okay!" and run him in. At that point we realize no one's home and FOR SOME REASON we decide to sit down and start watching TV in their livingroom.  I intend to go home but for some reason we stay, even though it's someone else's house and we don't know her that well.

At one point I go upstairs and use their bathroom, and as I come out I realize she's come home. As she enters the house (not quite realizing we're here) I start to freak as I realize what we've just done and how wrong that is. She sees my husband first, and he thinks he's going to be funny and jokes about how they just decided to take over. She's (obviously) not into a joke right now and starts screaming and crying. I run downstairs and try to explain what happened, lying a little bit to make the situation seem better, and she freaks and grabs the phone to call the police. She's sobbing hysterically and saying how we broke in and what horrific people we are. The whole time I'm desperately trying to make her understand that we're harmless and it was just a stupid thing and we're so sorry we didn't mean to offend her, and inside I'm realizing how awful it is and how dare I do something like that, what the hell was I thinking? When I realize she's going through with calling the police I take the phone from her hands and hang it up, because I don't want the police involved, but she takes that as a threat and runs away for a weapon.

This is all happening with my kids right behind me and watching, (for some reason, dreamDH isn't helping at all or even taking the kids outside... they just keep chillin' on their couch and watching her TV!) and all I can think about is how we'll be exiled from friends and family, arrested, we'll be in the paper as these freaks of nature and our lives will be ruined.

 

 

I woke up before this came to any sort of conclusion, but that's what I mean by nightmares. They aren't frightening, per se... just really disturbing. They leave me feeling really unsettled and upset.

Littleteapot - I can't tell you how many dreams I have like that where I am the only one able to do anything and dh is just standing back letting me take the lead.  My theory is that it's that I feel he doesn't 'step up' enough when I really need him.  That he leaves all the 'big' decisions and problems to me.  It sounds like you are feeling like you have a lot on your plate.  Not that I'm any psycho-analyzer!

I had a very similar dream last night. I was at a hospital/ airport LOL. It was not my due date yet but, like 2 months before. I went into one of the bathroom stalls because I felt pressure and I felt down and the babys head was crowning. It was the weirdest thing because it seems so real the way everything felt. I went out and sat on a chair and gave birth. I remember my baby being so little but okay even though I gave birth early. No pain for the birth either. I was holding the baby when I woke up from the dream and I felt so happy this morning.

 

I know the preterm unexpected labor part of the dream has to due with my concerns over the polyhydroamnios and chances for preterm birth but, it was a good dream other than that.

Man, I have some whoppers too.  My latest was that my baby was already born and she was about 3.  DH had decided to get a huge rott weiler dog (sp?) and it seemed nice.  However, I was inside one day and heard the sound a dog makes when fighting another dog and myh daughter screaming, I yelled for DH knowing the dog was mauling her and I wouldnt be able to get it off her, he did and somehow she wasnt bitten just scratched up, the dog only managed to bite her clothes and drag her around, not her skin. 

 

After it all calmed down, I told DH the dog goes now!  He argued with me and I said it goes or me and the kids do.  Would you believe he still wouldn't get rid of it after it attacked his child??  I was so confused and couldnt believe it I wanted to  beat him over the head!!

 

My craziest one of all though was during another pregnancy.  I dreamed that I had a midwife come to my house and she had this portable ultrasound thing.  She saw that instead of 1 baby, there were 3.  About an hour later, I went into premature labor.  I had all three and each was smaller than the first.  One, looking almost full term, one like a 24 weeker, another like a 16 weeker.  The smallest passed away immediately. it was heart breaking but I just held onto the other two.  Then, a few hours later, I lost the other smaller one as well.  I was so devestated but each time I just put all the more effort into saving the baby that was left.  The largest survived but I was so scared until I woke up that ssomething would happen any moment.

 

Can I just say also that they  get weirder right after delivery as your hormones are fluctuating again.  Then though, they are usually scary nightmares about something happening to your baby.

 

Bare with me with this crazy one I had when my baby was about 2 weeks old last postpartum period:

 

I was dining at a fine restaurant.  The waiter served somthing on a huge silver platter that ressembled a cheese ball molded into the shape of a baby.  I was using a butter knife to slice slices from the back of the neck of this "baby shaped cheese log" and put it on crackers.  Soon after about an inch was missing from the neck, I realized it wasnt a cheese ball but my actual baby.  I looked down at my half eaten cracker and lost my appetite but didnt immediately panic.  I told the waiter to take it away I couldnt look at it anymore.  He did and emptied the platter into a black garbage bag as trash.  I said NO!  You cant just toss it away like trash!!!!  Then pulled it out and realized he was still alive and picked him up holding his head on his neck that was only attached by the front since the slices from the back were gone.  No blood or anything, jsut gone.  I rushed upstairs to a Dr's office and she conffirmed that the baby couldn't survive like that and I should say my goodbyes it was a matter of time.  I cried hysterically and thought I could have more kids, but they would never be "This" unique baby again.  What had I done????

 

I woke up and was disturbed for days about that one.

 

God help us with the hormone induced dreams/nightmares.

Sharita - Wow, that last dream is crazy.  Hormones do bad, bad things to mommys' brains.

post #13 of 24

Wow, great thread!

 

I just had a really long, detailed dream that I was trapped on some sort of compound and people were trying to forcibly convert me to Scientology (how random, right). I was trying to escape. DH was there, but he had already converted and I was trying to convince him that we needed to leave, not join up. I called an acquaintance to try to get help and she started telling me how SHE had converted to Scientology, too.

Strange dreams abound at my house, all I can usually remember when I wake up is that it was about food.  Always food. I don't always wake up hungry, just lots of dreams involving food.  :)

In my dream the other night I had been walking around with the baby's head crowning. I don't remember how I noticed it but I thought to myself "I bet I could just push it out!" so I did and the baby came out and I was filled with that tender newborn feeling. I woke up feeling exhilarated. I think I had the dream because a friend just had her baby,when I was looking at the newborn pictures it felt like I had SO long to wait until I can hold our baby....

I had a super weird dream last night. I was with my family at some kind of summer festival thing that was on some kind of shore. I couldn't tell if it was a beach or a lake. It felt like a lake, but there were bigger waves like the ocean. We were staying in some kind of condo, but couldn't get in because none of the doors were open. I was starting to panic because we would be sleeping out in the yard but no one else seemed to care at all.

 

We went down to the shore area and there was this grassy slope that went down to where the beach was. I fell and rolled down the hill and no one noticed. My phone and laptop (who knows why I was bringing those to the beach, lol) rolled away from me and went in the water. I could not get up to go get them. I was totally stuck on the ground and NO ONE was helping me!  Some guy finally noticed and helped me up, but by then my whole family had disappeared. There were all these people everywhere and I couldn't see anyone I knew, I didn't know where I was, and I just wanted to go back to the condo and nap. I started crying because I was so scared and lonely and felt like no one wanted me where I was.

 

And then I woke up and cuddled with my daughter.

I had two sets of REALLY vivid dreams last night: one in which I vomited non-stop all over everything and everyone... and one in which I had sex with four different women (and then my husband).  I think I like the second dream better! whistling.gif

I had a really weird dream like that where I was on vacation on an all lesbian cruise ship and was engaging in all kinds of crazy sexual acts with these two women.  Another of my friends said that she had crazy girl on girl dreams while pregnant.  Maybe it's linked to us getting in touch with our bodies while being pregnant and appreciating our femaninity.  That or we are all closet lesbians, hahaha.

Non pregnant I don't really remember dreams and do not have vivid ones, if at all. But in pregnancy weird, weird sex dreams, especially this time. I won't be sharing those! The other night I dreamt that I went into labor at my gestation now and I had a blood clot and lost my mucous plug. I showed dh, but he didn't believe me and went to work anyway. Which would be typical unless I was really in labor, he would stay home, but otherwise he always goes in, no matter what.

I had a vivid sex dream last night, too, but about DH, not gals. ;)
