Last night was the 3rd dream I've had so far like this. The gender varies. Sometimes it's a girl, sometimes it's a boy. But the dream is always similar: The baby is born but I don't remember the birth process. In the dream I'm bothered by this not remembering. I feel disoriented. They (nurse, family, random people) just show me a baby and tell me it's mine. And it doesn't look like me or its head looks funny, or it seems too old to be newborn. So I refuse to touch it, hold it, etc, and keep repeating that it is definitely NOT my baby.
I wake up with a heavy feeling in my stomach. I have had no dreams of "falling in love" with my unborn baby, none of the birth or labor, and none where I see myself holding my child.
For disclosure: This is my first, I'm happily married, and this is a planned child. I've had a relatively easy pregnancy and hold no conscious feelings of hostility toward the baby. I've been in childcare most of my life, as a nanny, daycare worker, etc, so babies don't scare me.
I want those magic dreams of contentment and peace!! Why do I keep rejecting every baby that's given to me in dreams?
