I've always heard that pregnancy brings everyone vivid dreams. I'm curious to see if they are just all over the place or in themes...
Here's my main ones from each term so far....
Most of my dreams were short, anxious and of something going wrong. The unplanned part of pregnancy plus memories from a previous miscarriage were clearly #1 on my mind. *If* a baby was born in these dreams, she'd be TINY (like palm sized) and I was always losing her in other rooms or under things.
I dreamt I was in a hospital (even though still planning on BC then) having just given birth to an adult beige terrier. When I looked down the halls, there was a parade going on! Apparently baby showers are held in hospitals in my imaginary world, and people were carrying colorful boxes and strollers over their heads for me and the other new moms in the ward. When I tried to find my husband, I found him in a cafeteria-looking waiting room where a massive projector was showing slideshows of the day's babies (or in my case, dog.)
The real twist is that my husband was holding a child I assumed to be our first-born, and realized suddenly the terrier was our second child. Then I tried to take the toddler from his hands.... but it was a doll!! That he was treating like a child! That freaked me out enough to wake up.
Last night, I had a vivid almost wonderful dream of holding a big, healthy baby with long matted brown hair and very chubby legs. I was holding her against my chest and loving her and suddenly I realized she had a belly button. Thinking she had just been born and so this sis impossible, I looked around for her cord, and saw that it was attached TO HER KNEE.
Then, I was told she was still not ready to be born, and would have to go back inside of me! I looked at her head and groaned at the thought of having to push it back IN. Luckily, I woke up soon after that.
