Holly: Pregnancy Dreams
I have always been one to have strange dreams, but when I am pregnant they get even stranger!
During my pregnancy with Brett I started dreaming about my ex-boyfriends. No, they weren’t sex dreams, just dreams where I was interacting with them: going on a picnic, running into them at parties, etc. Since it was my first pregnancy I figured that maybe I was having a bit of anxiety about my commitment to my husband and to our family- knowing that bringing a child into the world meant that I was forever committed to both of them. I have no doubts about my life or the decisions that I’ve made but those darn dreams made me wonder if subconsciously I was feeling insecure. I’m still unsure of the reason for these dreams but I certainly remember them.
The other thing I dreamed about during my first pregnancy was that the baby would stick their face against my stomach wall and stretch it as far as possible so he/she could look at me and I could look at her. But that was a bit like Alien and not really cute at all. I didn’t have any dreams about giving birth or my baby being deformed or other strange dreams people have reported during pregnancy.
Here I am, not in even done with my fourth month and the strange pregnancy dreams are back! In fact, I started having strange dreams and I was telling my husband about them and HE was the one who reminded ME that I had weird dreams with the first pregnancy!
The first strange dream during pregnancy was about me trying to set up a love affair with a talk radio host from a local station that I listen to- So weird! Then, I had a dream that I couldn’t carry the pregnancy to term so they took the baby out of me and put it in my cousin, Lindsay, to carry for me. I was out partying at a campfire while I was waiting for her to give birth. When she finally had the baby, the baby the size of a 6-month old! Oh, and the baby was a girl (my first pregnancy dream sex prediction). My husband says that I dreamed of having a boy the first time and we had a girl so if I’m dreaming about a girl then we must be having a boy! We’ll see…
I will add new blog posts about any strange pregnancy dreams that I may have over the next 5 months. Did you have any odd or vivid pregnancy dreams? If so, please leave a comment!
By the way- this picture obviously has nothing to do with me being pregnant. It is just a cute picture of my daughter. Besides, I don’t have any pictures of me pregnant yet- I’ll get on that this weekend!
