I have always had crazy dreams, but when I was pregnant…OH MAN. I have never had such vivid dreams in my life. Every night I almost kind of dreaded sleeping because I knew I was in for a wild ride.
One that I will never forget happened the night before my 18 week ultrasound. We knew we wanted to know the sex and were just excited in general to see how baby was growing and developing. My hubby and I laid down to go to sleep and baby was moving up a storm so that was actually the first night he felt baby move. It was amazing and even after all that excitement, I went right to sleep the night.
You know how sometimes in the morning you wake up to hit “snooze” only to fall back asleep and dream that you are getting ready…but then wake up 40 minutes later and realize you need to bust a move, get in the shower and get your freakin butt work? The whole time you are rushing and thinking “I can’t believe I’m running late, that dream was SO real and I was almost out the door!”. Well I had a dream kind of like that…only 100 times worse.
I had a dream that my husband and I got ready the next morning, went into the doctor’s office and had our ultrasound only to find out that it was a boy but that there was no heartbeat and I would have to deliver a stillborn. I have never had such a vivid dream in my life. I actually woke up at 4 AM, opened my eyes and thought to myself “Remember that time I was pregnant but then we lost the baby? Man that really sucked”. I started to get a little teary eyed about it and sat up to go to the bathroom when baby started doing somersaults. I immediately realized that I had just dreamed all that and started crying. Like an uncontrollable sobbing, ugly cry. Bryan shot up and was obviously freaking out as I’m trying to explain things but mumbling “lost the baby” and other nonsense.
I was SO scared for our appointment the next day. Even though baby was moving like crazy, I just felt like something wasn’t right and could NOT get that dream out of my head. We ended up having an amazing appointment…it’s a GIRL and HEALTHY, obviously much different than my horrendous dream.
Throughout the rest of my pregnancy, and even for a bit after I gave birth, I had some wild dreams. Everything from giving birth to a litter of puppies to moving to Mars where we could raise our baby in a “safe environment free of crime and hate”. I actually started making a habit of looking things up on dream interpretation websites like dreammoods.com. So before you uproot your family to live on the moon, take a look and see if there is an explanation for your dream.
