Early in the pregnancy I had tons of intense dreams about water, but I haven't had many dreams about pregnancy itself.
Last night I had a pretty cool dream that I hired a friend of mine as a midwife. I went into labor, but I didn't have any contractions at all. Then, my baby was born within an hour - but I didn't have to push at all! It was so easy and I was so happy to see my baby.
The downside was that I hadn't talked extensively with my friend about my birth plan - I thought some things would be obvious. So she cut the baby's cord immediately and then she yanked on the cord to get my placenta out instead of letting it deliver naturally. I was so bummed. I tried to tell myself that hardly any women get their birth exactly as they want it, and I should be happy it went so well with my baby, but I was so sad that my baby wouldn't get the months of iron she needed and that I could potentially retain placental fragments. I think this dream of course is about the things I regret that happened to my son, not in my control, in his first week of life.
What are you dreaming?
