I just had some really bizarre dreams (yes, it is 11:30am. My 2 y/o woke up very early today. At 9:30, I laid down for a nap and let my kids watch Netflix. I hate tv, but am glad for it on days like this!).
In the first, my stepmom and I were house sitting for someone. We had my kids and a bunch of other kids there, in the bathroom, we had a baby crocodile, and it was hooked up to some sort of large tube (think stretchy vacuum tubing), which was hooked up to the water. The croc got free, and started running around the house. I tried to catch it, it bit my hand, and it got away.
I locked all of the kids in the bathroom, hoping it wouldn't slither under the door, and went to find my stepmom. She didn't think it was a big deal, and said we'd find it eventually. We left with all of the kids to go somewhere, and when we came back, she suggested we call one of the hundreds of local farms (who knows where we were that there were so many farms!), and ask to borrow an animal that would hunt and catch the croc. She didn't think we needed to tell the owners of the house anything at all. Then I woke up.
When I went back to sleep, I had some weird dream about trying to choose a dress to wear, while my mom talked to me about how much she liked one of my vice principals from school (whom she did not like, in reality).
Then we were suddenly trying to install fire hydrants on a busy street front, preparing for some catastrophe that was coming. I think it was either weather or dinosaur related.
Then, she was talking to some friends of hers, and I was trying to make a salad in her purse. I was frustrated, because I needed to snap long slices of cucumbers to the interior of her purse, but there weren't any snaps on the lining.
Next, I dreamt that I went to see my old obstetrician, who I haven't seen since I was pg with my first. Apparently, I was planning to do concurrent care (which is funny, because when that was my plan with my first, he said, "You can just see the mw. There's no reason for you to see me, too."). Instead of an exam table, I was on a large bed with a flowery bedspread, and lots of cushions. The room was rather large, too.
He asked, "How are you," and I said, "Good. Pregnant, as usual. It's a hobby of mine." Then he said he wanted to check the baby's heartbeat, and when I asked if he had a fetoscope (we prefer to avoid u/s waves), he said no, and took out his "doppler." It ended up being some handheld u/s machine, but I had to hold it in my teeth for it to work. He shoved the round bite plate into my mouth, and it started vibrating, which hurt! He asked, "What side is the baby usually on, and I told him top right. He went there, and in a tiny screen, I saw the baby's face very clearly (and not only was it way too clear for a u/s, but the baby looked like a 40 weeker).
Suddenly my mom, DH, and three of my kids were there (for some reason, DS2 was missing), and they all got very excited. Then the dr said, "Let's have a look at the umbilical cord," which gave us a clear crotch shot. Being team green, I tried not to look, but couldn't help myself, and saw that it was a girl. I wasn't going to say anything, but then my mom exclaimed, "Did you guys see that! It's a girl! You're going to have a sister!" I was excited about having a girl, but was sorely disappointed about knowing already. My kids were acting kind of goofy about it. I distinctly remember looking at DS1, and he had very long blond hair, which he hasn't had since he was four.
Then a clean-up crew came in after us to take out garbage and change the sheets (they were wearing masks and everything), and a nurse handed me a print out with some stats on the baby. I wanted to know where the pictures were, and she said, "Oh, you wanted those?" and ran off to see if she could get them. I think I woke up after that.
My brain is crazy.
