Dreams (Good, Bad, Weird)
That is a wild one. How did you feel about it? I love to try and decipher what my dreams mean. What do you think that one was about?
I haven't had many that were memorable lately. Though a couple of weeks ago I did have the first one where baby made an appearance. I don't remember the specifics now but it was a sweet dream. Early on in this pregnancy I had a lot of vivid, frightening dreams. DH regularly woke me up because I was crying in my sleep. Those mostly had to do with every kind of vehicle accident imaginable; driving off a cliff, that sort of thing. Guess I've worked though some of my fears about having another because the "OMG this is the end of the world!" dreams have subsided. Funny pregnancy dream story: when I got pregnant with my son, we weren't TTC (we were NFPing, lol). One day, before I was late or anything, I had this dream about an old, green Buick. Only it was an HPT, the way things in dreams can look like one thing but you know they are something else. I woke up and told DH I was pregnant. And I was.
Wow MamaB - that is some dream! I keep having dreams that I somehow miss the birth... always in different ways - I the one who gives birth, but I somehow miss it. I think it goes mostly to my doctoral work, that is ALL about the experience of giving birth. I hadn't planned, when I started that work, to have another baby. Now I almost feel pressured to have some AMAZINGLY spiritual experience this time around ( I did with each of the other 3, so I anticipate I will again). It's like, if I don't, my work is bullshit... and I keep playing out that fear through my dreams. I seriously doubt that I will be able to miss the birth, though ;)
Lol I generally have pretty wacky dreams wether pregnant or not!
Latest baby related dreams include-
-Being in the middle of a race track (?!?!?!) and a phsyic looking "into" my belly like an x ray and saying that the baby is a girl, has dark brown hair and will be born with her left hand on top of her head.... ?!?!?!! Oh and the baby would be born yawning?!?!?!?!
- Me giving birth in the middle of our lounge room while being suported physically by DH and my midwife. Baby comes out smoothly and is a girl again (?!?!?!?!). Midwife asks "Who is it?". I check that she is a girl and then look at DH and say one of our chosen names and he nods that yup thats who we have!
- DH dreamt recently that we had a little boy. I gave birth in bed, and handed baby to him to snuggle, then he looked up and realised that we actually had twins and he was holding one, but the other was perched on his sholder like a parrot?!?!?
- Had a dream that Midwife and Back up visited and asked when I was going to have the baby and I asnwered with all certainty that its either "26th, 27th or 28th of December and at 3:27 AM". Freakishly exact and clear! So who knows!!
Of course they are just the baby related ones. Then you have the weird arse sex dreams involving Voldemort, Snape and Batman ?!?!? Yeah..... ??
I ALWAYS have dreams--now and with DDs pregnancy--that I can't find my baby. Or that I am like out and about and suddenly realize GASP! MY BABY!! and have no idea where she is and it has been like days since I last remember seeing her or feeding her. SOOOOOOOOOO stressful. WOrst dreams ever.
I hate those dreams where I can't find the baby :/
I have had so many dreams lately of baby coming early - s/he (it's been both) is always fine, but I realize I'm about to give birth & I start freaking out because it's too early. DP has been saying all along there is no way I am going to make it to my due date, and he's pretty intuitive about a lot of things. I'm fine once we reach that magical 37 week mark, of course, but in these dreams it's usually right about now (32/33 weeks). I think I will breathe a HUGE sigh of relief when we pass this point!
