Crazy pregnancy dreams

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
I thought I read something about crazy dreams but can't find it. Maybe the symptoms thread. I've had a few really weird ones the past couple days.

One I was at my high school and my ex from when I was 18 (after high school) was there trying to get back with me. But I kept telling him no, I'm pregnant, etc. Doesn't sound weird but it really was.

Then last night I was talking to dp (in dream) and he told me the world was ending in 6 years so it didn't matter anyways that I got pregnant. So do it up. Cause there couldn't be any long term negative consequences.

What are yours?

I had a bizarre one where a house was made of SWISS cheese (specifically) and SpongeBob was eating it.  You can't make this stuff up - so random!  I hate swiss!! :)

ds and I indulge in some spongebob, I love it ;) Maybe he would have respected your house if it was a pineapple..

 

Prior to ever thinking I'd have three kids, I had one and had sworn off the possibility of more at the time, I dreamed I had a boy-girl-boy trio. I'm 2 for 3. I'm slightly hopeful this is true as I really want to name him (it) Kaiser so I can call him Kai for short. Kai means the sea in Hawaiian and we all love the sea, dh and I met in a town called Kailua, and I'm just bound and determined to use it. . Kailani for a girl is unfortunately out because it sounds like a silly rhyme with our last name.

 

wow, that was a ginormous digression. this is what I get for trying to catch up in the middle of the night.

I dreamed last night that I lost the baby, and it looked like a fetal My Little Pony. It was still alive and moving when it came out. Then this morning I woke up and had some spotting, which I haven't had at all up until now. It was mostly brown, I'm still nauseous, and I had spotting around this point in 2 if my other pregnancies, so I think it's all ok, but the combo of the dream and the spring was a little disturbing!

My Little Pony!  Oh my!

 

My dream last night involved sharing an elevator with Oprah, having my make-up done by Mally Beauty, and then attending a wedding where I was only allowed to sit in the kitchen of the church while the ceremony happened.  This dream stuff is crazy.  DH says I should write them down.

My cousin died in 2002 due to poorly managing his diabetes; he was 22, but I hadn't seen him since he was 16 because I don't visit the area often and the other relatives told me he was busy and I didn't make a point of seeing him.  So, last night I dreamed I was at a party and he was there, still about 22, and we chatted a bit and then I said casually, "So, like, I thought you were dead--what's up with that?"  He said, "Oh, yeah, but they let me out once in a while when there's a good party."  I apologized for not having gotten to know him as an adult.  He said it was okay.  I woke up feeling good about it.

 

But later I wondered: If he eats sugar at the party, does that send him right back to being dead?

I have the most vivid and crazy dreams while pregnant! I have a lot of dreams about dh abandoning me, tornadoes, trying to dial 911 but repeatedly miss dialing, and weird delivery scenarios. I worked for a vet before I had kids and with every pregnancy I have at least one dream of my old boss doing a c-section on me and me having a litter of puppies! This morning I woke up panicked after dreaming Lydia from Breaking Bad had come and killed dh and I was struggling with her, banging her head into the rim off a toilet! Craziness! Dh says maybe one of my dreams will be an idea for a book like the Twilight series author, lol.

Oh man oh man oh man. I just dreamed I had an ultrasound where they told me everything was wrong, baby was freakishly proportioned, even I could see the head was way too small, and it was not going to survive and must be D&C'd...but it was moving on the screen. Then for a long time I was walking around the hospital and home, making plans, working on what I was going to tell all the people who already know I'm pregnant. Then I think I was actually awake making plans for a while before I realized:

I'm in a hotel. (I am on my way to pick up an old friend today and we're going to a science fiction convention.) I am slightly overheated in this unfamiliar room and bed. I've been dreaming.

WHEW!!!

Now I am into my normal 6am routine of eating a few almonds and trying to keep them down. But I am alone in a hotel where I could watch TV without waking anyone! Dare I see what's on to distract me? I hope this isn't the day some station has a special on "Everything That Could Possibly Go Wrong With Your Baby"!

P.S. Thanks for listening. I am so glad under these circumstances to have someone to talk to right away.

Oh, I sure started up with the gruesome dreams last night! I can't remember the first one, but it left me feeling afraid to go back to sleep. I think it involved vampires. The next one involved pirates (specifically, Jack Sparrow. I've never actually seen any of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies!) chopping people up.

 

EnviroBecca - I think I've had dreams about the baby being freakish in some way with every one of my pregnancies. With the first, it was a penguin, and somehow got into my bloodstream. With one of the others, they found problems and ended up sending me for a 3-d ultrasound. Then 4-d. Then 5-d. In any case, it didn't work out (in the dream) and we ended up naming the baby Jack (um, what's with my apparent Jack obsession?) because it's a name we'd never consider using, and we didn't want to waste a "good" name (with no offense meant to anyone who has lost a baby! That is definitely not the attitude I'd take in real life!). And then this time I had the gruesome miscarriage of the My Little Pony fetus. In any case, all those babies (well, I can't claim for sure I'm not carrying an MLP this time, but the others) ended up being fine.

Last night I dreamed that my son told me that the last time we visited my parents (22 months ago) he had visited my old elementary school and checked out 5 potatoes from the library there.  He had just now remembered when he found them under the couch.  They were very overdue--sprouted and moldy--so right away I boarded an airplane and then rented a car to drive up to my parents' house.  I parked in their driveway, walked to the school, dropped the potatoes in the book return, and went back to my parents' house thinking I might as well stop in and say hi.  The front door was wide open, but nobody was home.  There were newspapers drizzled with glue all over the floor.  (That last bit is almost certainly related to my son's crafting binge yesterday in the middle of our already-cluttered living room.)

 

This morning after getting my son to school, I lay down for "just a minute" before going to work and dreamed that I got out my iPad to email my boss that I would be late, but my email contained a very forceful ad for DVDs of the complete concerts of Yes, with crazy bright video and non-adjustable volume and dialog boxes that said, "Buy this incredible offer? __Yes __No" except before I could check No another box would appear blocking the No option with a Yes option, and the close buttons for the boxes weren't responding, and then the concert footage got to the lyric, "I get up!  I get dooowwwnnn!" and the iPad's screen orientation started switching back and forth too fast for me to click anything.  I woke up screaming, "No!  Just let me check No!!!"

OcelotMom, thanks for the reassurance that a dream of miscarriage or birth defects isn't necessarily prophetic.  During my pregnancy that did NOT work out, I had two dreams that made me feel certain it would, and those were not connected to reality...so there's no reason this one would be.  It's just an expression of my natural concern about the possibility of problems.

I had a very upsetting dream last night. In my dream I was diagnosed with gestational cancer which is kind of like gestational diabetes - it's a form of cancer that you can only get if you are pregnant. The doctors kept insisting I had to do chemotherapy but I was so worried that it would harm my baby! They told me that if I didn't do chemo I would die.... And I was having such a hard time making a decision. It felt so real that it took me a while after I woke up to realize that there's no such thing as gestational cancer.

As upsetting as it was, it's the first time I've ever been pregnant in a dream, I guess it's a sign that this pregnancy is starting to feel real to me! For years I've been having nightmares in which I realize I'll never get to birth my own child or be a mom (probably because I've been struggling with infertility for so long and that is my deepest fear). I've even had a few of them during this pregnancy. It's pretty crazy to wake up from a dream in which you are forever barren and childless only to realize that you're actually pregnant!

I always have crazy dreams, but they are over the top when I'm pregnant. One of my more recent dreams was that rather than have an ultrasound, we decided to just take the baby out and look at it, check gender, etc. It was a boy, but it grew so fast when we took it out that we couldn't put it back in! I was so sad that I wouldn't get to experience this pregnancy and birth. Woke up and was relieved to feel my tiny belly!

The sex dreams. Oh, my, the sex dreams. Seriously, they are about so many people, some of whom are completely invented, some of whom would be pleased, and some of whom would probably be displeased. And in all of them I'm so keen! It's unsettling. Although they're all pleasant while I'm having them . . .

Last night I had a nightmare where I was in the house I grew up in and it was flooding in the midst of a terrible storm, and the basement was completely flooded, while my parents (one of whom has passed and the other I haven't spoken to in years) urged me to apparently free dive to retrieve... I don't know what. Pull a magical plug in the floor? Then somehow I was outside, in one of those floaty rafts, the flood having continued to the point where there was a full-blown maelstrom, which I was headed right into. All the while.. I was pleading with god to finally give me the job I've held a tentative offer letter for for almost two years.

That's right. Give me the high paying job, not get me off this raft and out of the churning water. I guess that was inferred if I expected to be alive to take said job.

Thank god it isn't just me.  Last night my dream included Cher.  Yes, THE Cher.  

post #19 of 32

...and was that a sex dream, Mrs. Donut?

 

I wouldn't be surprised if Cher turned up in one of my dreams, as I listen to Pandora all day at work and they recently carried an ad for a Cher concert, but so far I've been safe from her.
