So ... yeah. Gross and disturbing. I dreamed I lost my reproductive organs, gave myself a cesarean, and baby survived.
Last night I dreamed that I was 42 weeks pg and my midwife had given me like 5 minutes to go into labor or else she was going to induce me. I was working on something or other, and then when I looked at the clock, it was 15 minutes past that deadline. But dh and I leave the midwife's office without an induction (not sure why?) and in the car I start having contractions, in ridiculous fast waves... they lasted about a second and were less than a second apart. (!!!)
So it's pretty clear to me why I had this dream... DD was born at 42 weeks after I was "induced" by membrane sweeping, and the contractions were never less than 10 minutes apart until my midwife broke my water after 20-some hours of labor.
Now, I totally think my mw did the right thing with both of those interventions, but I still have this feeling that my body doesn't know how to go into labor or to be in labor. With my daughter, I never started labor on my own, and I never had "active labor" by the textbook definition.
So yeah... my biggest hope with this baby is that I can go into labor on my own, and that I will have genuine active labor that is effective... and oh, yeah -- PLEASE OH PLEASE NO BACK LABOR.

Last time, I kept dreaming that I had killed him, so these accidental deaths are an improvement!
And ditto on the sex dreams. But no desire when I'm awake.
I've been dreaming about Lost every night since the finale though. When I watch Fringe I dream about that too. Maybe I should go see the movie Babies then.
Mom to (12), (7), (5), (4), (born 7/8/11), , and
I was with my family (no DH in the picture) and we were at the airport. We were dropping dad off to visit family and then we were going to pack and leave the next day. I got lost at one point and when I found my way back my parents were furious...because we were going to miss the plane. Apparently, the whole "drop dad off" was a lie and we were all going that day. But, I hadn't packed so I was pissed. The "plane" was actually the inside of a bookstore (so I was okay on that front)...Fast forward (everything is blurry to this point) and I'm at my Aunt's house and we're supposed to be getting ready for this formal thing...in 10mins. I'm upset because I have no nice clothes, my hair is a wreck, and I didn't pack my makeup...
I had some sex dreams last night!!! WOAH it was CRAZY. Seriously...if my husband only knew...It was some Girl on Girl...
I've also been having really vivid nightmares. Last night I had a dream that a neighbor of mine went crazy and was breaking into everyone's houses with a shotgun shooting everyone. Totally disturbing. I couldn't go back to sleep for hours because DH was at work. Although I guess he couldn't really stop a shotgun wielding lunatic.
I have been trying to figure out a bike rack for our vehicle and most don't fit and we don't have money. I usually just put them in the trunk but we will be traveling some this summer and the trunk will be full. I want to take the kids bikes everywhere so they will actually learn how to ride. anyways I was kind of at a lost.
Last night I dreamed I went into my garage. Climed upto the top moved a whole bunch of boxes and found an old bike rack that I had used on my saturn. (the saturn is definately a different size and type of car than our current dodge sprinter) Anyways, In my dream I dug it out and loosened the straps all of the way and rigged it up on my sprinter. So I had a min. this morning and climbed up in the garage and what do ya know behind a bunch of boxes was my old bike rack I pulled it out and the straps loosened a whole bunch. I rigged it up on my sprinter and it fits awesome. Don't know if the kids bikes will fit on it well as I didn't dream about that part. I just thought it was so funny that the dream was so real and then i was able to use the info.
