Did you dream of your babies before you were ever pg?

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
I dreamed of my first dd my whole life and KNEW when I got pg the first time she would be a girl.
Then after she was born about three months later I dreamed I was standing in my dining room with dd1 in her high chair and another dc on my hip. So I KNEW that another was coming before too much longer. Now I have dd2 who is 20 mos younger than dd1.
Then when dd2 was about 2 mos old (she just turned 7 mos) I dreamed of TWO babies - a boy and a girl, named Nathaniel and Sophie and they were either twins or very close together but I couldn't tell how far from the older two. Now I can't stop thinking about these two babies. In a way I want them right now. I feel like they're already mine and I'm just waiting for them to get here. I find myself thinking "I need to save these clothes because Sophie will need them." or "I'll have to buy a blue one of those when Nathaniel comes."
Am I crazy? Is this just wishful thinking? Anyone else out there have an experience like this?

When my friends and I were teenagers we all got together and tried to "feel out" our future children. I could see only daughters for me. Daughters as far as the eye could see forward and back. There was a ghost of a boy named "Charlie". Now I have my two girls and I dreamed of both of them while pregnant and knew they were girls and the first one would be very blonde, smart and sweet and the second would be fiery, loyal, and short-tempered and all that was true. Now I am having trouble having "the rest" of my children and I wonder if it's because "Charlie" is trying to come through but can't. But also I still see only daughters so Charlie "can't" come.... Something's not right. I even have a bag full of boy clothes "just in case"!

But yeah, I know how you feel and I also think I'm just being crazy with wishful thinking.

I hope we can see our heart children soon.... :

Thanks! I'm glad I'm not crazy:. I sometimes think that I can't possibly wait to have them and then again sometimes I think I'm just imagining it all. I've got the baby itch even though dd2 is just 7 mos. Somehow I feel like my family isn't complete and I won't feel right until it is.

I'd love to hear any other stories of mamas who had some kind of 'Prophetic' experience about their babies. :

Well, I think I did. I was having a deep meditation time shortly after the death of my grandmother several years ago and I was very introspective on life, etc. and I remember being completely "zoned out", I suppose, and I clearly recall a very young girl (3 ish?) who looked similar to me come up to me as I was lying in shavasana and come pick up my hand for a second, then she smiled and then walked away. I always assumed this was going to be my daughter (I had never be preg before this). well, when I got pregnant I had hoped this was when I was going to meet her, but the further along I got, I knew it was a boy, and it surely was a boy. DS is wonderful but I can't shake the feeling that I'm supposed to have a DD someday too. But I also worry that maybe that was it. Maybe that was her and somewhere along the line I MC without knowing it and that was all I got to see of her. Anyway, just typing that makes me choke up. I feel we'll be complete with a DS and DD but I just hope she really is going to come. Anyway, who knows what will happen. I still think about that though, so clearly, I find myself tempted ALL THE TIME, to go to a psychic just to hear something like I was right about this, but I don't really know how I feel about that. Anyway, interesting thread!

Catters, it sounds to me, as a removed source, that the girl may have been your grandmother?

I do not dream my children. But I know them. I know when they are coming and who they are. It's a lovely gift.

That's a lovely thought too. Either way, Catters, I hope that you are blessed having seen her and if she is your daughter then she comes to you soon!

BTW, what is shavasanna? (oops, I think I spelled that wrong)

I feel a little boy named Jaime waiting to come. It's strange because I don't think of that name as one my husband or I would choose really. I do hope he comes!

mommyem, I hope he comes to you!
Have you looked up the name to see what it means? I've done that with the names of the babies I dreamed.
I find everything about this fascinating!

well, I was thinking that could have possibly been her, but she looked so different from my grandmother as a child and I had this strong "daughter" vibe. But I also sometimes wonder if it was maybe "me"? Like little me trying to comfort big me at that time? Hoo boy, that sounds kind of nutty!

Savasana is the relaxation after a yoga session.

I tend to have dreams of a baby, recurrent for months before I conceive. And I have known without testing that I am pregnant before af is even due. The scariest one though started 2 weeks ago. I have had a recurring dream of going for an u/s and seeing 4 sacs, the dream skips forward to finding out it is 3 girls and 1 boy, it skips forward again to them being around 18 months, beautiful children with strawberry blond hair(I have dark dark hair, S/O is greying but after I told him of this dream he informed me he had starwberry blond hair as a small child). In the dream when they are toddlers I call them by name, Arianna, Bethany, Christine, and Declan. None of these are names from previous baby name lists, and after I looked up meanings they are all related to Christ or the Bible in some way.

Arianne means most holy
Bethany was the birth place of Lazarus
Christine means follower of Christ
Declan was the name of a saint

SO perhaps this will come to pass, perhaps not but sure feels real. I have caught myself thinking about these 4 during the day. I have found myself hinking of middle names etc. Only time will tell but I hope this means they will come into my life.

I dreamed about all of my kids when I was pregnant with my first - oldest a girl, middle a boy, youngest a girl. There were two 'shadows' off to a side - I've always figured they were kids I might have.

I dreamed my son's wedding before I ever conceived him.

I've had dreams and visits from another one for years. Brigid. Her presence is *really* strong and I'm just waiting on her to come now. I really can't wait... I've felt her around since I was pg with my first.

I have prophetic dreams ALL the time. I think that I should have a dream notebook and write all the ones down that I can remember. Anyway when I was pg with my dd I always had dreams that she was a girl. i would often have dreams that she was tiny and I would put her in a laundry basket on top of clothes while I was doing laundry and she would never cry and I would have to look for her when it was time to nurse her. Very weird dreams. Turns out she was 8lbs 6oz so not tiny at all! When I was pg with my son I didn't have a lot of dreams. I never had one about a baby anyway. So I had no idea what I was haveing but everyone around me thought he was a boy and they were right. I have always wanted twins but there are none in my family. I can't remember if I have ever had any dreams about that or not, but if I ever do I am sure that it will come true because most every dream I have has come to be true either in present time or years after I have the dream. Weird......

Well, as to that I have a couple of thoughts. It could have been your grandmother in her soon to be new body. Also, I sometimes wonder if we aren't children when we are between lives.

Of course with such a strong daughter vibe, you're most likely right.

Hmmm... you could go through so many ideas. Like your twin sister who died in the womb before anyone knew you were a twin... That would make a good novel actually.

OR... your grandmother is coming back AS your daughter!
Actually I did hear about that. It was a grandfather/great grandson. It was an amazing and beautiful story. But sadly I can't remember where I read it. It was just amazing.

whoa, scary. I totally have outlined a story about a twin who died at birth and stays with her living sister all through her life. eep. I always thought that would make for a cool story, but then my best friend just had twin girls so I abandoned the idea because I certainly would never want her to think I would even imagine one of her babies not being here, kwim? Which of course, I never did as I thought of this several years ago, but, you know. lol!

I like the idea of maybe my grandmother preparing for her new body/life. That would be really sweet. Maybe I just hope to have a daughter so much that I hang on to that experience.

I think that is totally awesome! I'd love to know if you end up having these babies. How fascinating!

I have had lots of dreams about my kids. I keep saying I want 3 of each gender but in every single dream I have ONLY daughters. Hmmm...
post #17 of 32
Yes -- I dreamed of my son years before I had him. I had a vivid image of holding him up near a river, with sunlight all around him, he was laughing and I was very, very happy. The night I conceived him, I knew I was conceiving him. And, a few weeks before he was born, I had a dream that I was in labor in a house with lots of windows and a huge thunderstorm going on outside...then the dream fast-forwarded, the storm was gone and I was no longer in labor. I looked around for my baby, and there he was! I "heard" a voice say, "don't worry about when or how it happens, you'll get the baby of your dreams." As it turns out, he was late, it was a *very* stormy labor, and when he came out he looked EXACTLY like the baby in my dream...

Interestingly, this was my second child...I had no dreams of my (firstborn)daughter, no awareness of her conception, and I didn't *know* what she would look like like I did my son.

I've since had a "visit" from a presence I believe is my third child, a daughter, and I'm getting things in order to conceive. Stay tuned...

It's very interesting to me that there are those women and even just some conceptions that mamas know they are concieving right then or know fairly quickly after without any outside thing telling them so.

An interesting occurance with both my babies: the Lord woke me up in the middle of the night and told me to "Sit Up." So I did but that was it. So both times I sat up straight and was very tired because it was like 2 or 3 in the morning but for a while I didn't feel like He would let me lay down yet. So I waited until I just "felt" like it was okay to lay back down and then I did. Both times the next morning or later in the day I had implantation bleeding. I'm convinced that both times I needed to sit up to let the fertilized egg slide down a bit with gravity so that it would implant in the right place and not too far up.
I know that all sounds a little crazy but it happened two times and both times I got babies out of it. I'm waiting for that next "sit up" message from God...:

I think it is really cool that you have had dreams about your children before they were conceived!! I wish I had that gift!! I will say that for years I have *felt* like I was going to have one more child and it would be a girl, but I have never dreamed of this child.

Last year I did have two dreams that I had given birth to twins. In one of the dreams I was BF'g them both and the other one I remember they were still in my belly and the ultrasound tech told me I had a boy and a girl in there. I distictly remember telling the tech before she told me that I thought the one on the right was a boy because he felt much larger than the one on the left. I have no twins that run in my family so the odds of this are VERY slim, but I have thought of this dream a lot. In fact, so much that I thought of two names that I love for the boy/girl twins. How silly is that!!

Me and my DH are having conversations as to if we will even have anymore kids. I want another and he doesn't... but, I keep feeling like there is a baby (or two) missing in our family still. I guess only time will tell.

I wonder if there is a way to channel energy to know if there will be anymore children?? I haven't ever been very good at this type of thing though.

With my boys no but with our dd I did dream I had a girl. It was so strange, but I knew when I woke up we would have a girl. I tested but it came up neg. I waited a few more days and we got the +! At the end of my pg I went to bed 'asking' her to come the next day as it was her oldest brothers due date and my Dad would be home to help my Mom with the boys. Sure enough I was awoken at 4:30 with contractions!
