I was in the hospital, taking a bath while in labour.

Suddenly, I could see the contours of two tiny hands and a face coming out of my lower stomach. The hands grabbed my finger and brought them to where the mouth would be on the face and started sucking. For some reason I thought this was really cute, not weird :P

I woke up at my home sometime later and was handed a baby girl instead of the boy I was expecting. She was supposed to be 10lbs 3oz and everyone was going on about how cute and little she was. Except she was about the size of a toddler, could walk and had most of her teeth. We named her Olivia and she toddled around to greet everyone. :

The only thing I could think of was 'What am I going to do with all those blue clothes?'

I think I may have a bit of anxiety over this baby being a bit too big and possibly not the gender we saw on the ultrasound. Just a guess! haha

Anyone else having funky, pre-birth dreams?

Tons! I can't remember any right now. DH always has weird dreams as we near the due date, as well. His are anxiety driven, he dreams he'll roll over and squish the baby... poor guy.

I dreamed last night that I spent the night in the hospital with prodromal labor. Contractions were strong when I got there but weakened over the course of the night and were gone in the morning. Joy!

I had an amusing dream about a week or so ago that the midwives told me my baby had 12 toes on each foot and that the reason was because I was touching my stomach too much and this promoted "too much" growth. ha!

A few nights ago I dreamed I went to my cousin's house for a visit (I live in VA and she lives in AZ!) and I went into labor and had my baby there! Somehow my midwife was there, at least. lol But most surprising of all was that the baby turned out to be a girl! The ultrasound tech was confident we're having a boy, and even my dh, mom, and I saw the penis, though for such a short amount of time I wasn't sure of what I was seeing, AND I had a boy dream long before having the ultrasound... so I feel it's right. However, I have refused to get rid of my girl baby clothes yet--even though I've had several opportunities to sell them or pass them on--just in case! And I have received a lot of hand-me-down boy clothes! So I guess even though I'm calling my son by name, I'm harboring some fear of it being a mistake.

Another weird thing in the dream was that I kept forgetting where I put my baby! In the morning after giving birth, in the dream, I woke up and couldn't remember where I put her to sleep. Very unrealistic, since I will be holding him all the time practically, and we will be sleeping right next to one another.
