I didnt start having weird dreams till late second tri..Like you before pg I never remembered my dreams but now I've had some of the oddest and some have been very morbid.. From serial killers to watching video tapes of peoples heads decaying and turning into maggots..to my grandmother falling off a roof and becoming a zombie.. Oh yeah..
Funny thing is these dont seem to bother me much as I've had some of the most unimportant dreams (small family arguments or dreams of my furbabies turning into other animals) and they have me waking up in literal tears!
Around 8-10 weeks I had HORRIBLE nightmares, every time I slept. Dreams about babies dying, going into labor and not being able to get to the hospital, serial killers after me, my SO leaving me, being raped, my SO dying, horrible, horrible stuff. It was so bad I would get anxiety about going to bed and push it off.
The last two weeks have been better. I hope it stays that way.
This is my siggy. Love it.
My family is a little "off" from what most people think is normal. We remember most of our dreams, and put a lot of weight into what they mean and/or are trying to tell us. So, when I started having all these crazy, violent dreams I got really concerned. My mom said she did the same thing & mt sisters did, too.
My dreams in the beginning involved me apparently thinking I'm Steven Seagal. People would try to mug me & I would end up kicking ass with all kinds of attitude.
After that, I had a lot of dreams involving dog attacks that were all very bloody & involved dogs from people I know (including my own).
Luckily they aren't as bad now, but I still have some that are pretty intense.
I'm ready to climb the walls, too, buddy.
A few weeks ago I had super violent dreams. Usually someone is trying to kill me with a gun. I had a dream that my cousin shot me in the stomach and when I woke up I was so freaked out that it meant I was going to miscarry.
Thank God they've tamed down a bit lately.
Yeah! I have had wierd dreams...one dream was where I died in a hotel bed out of town and my spirit was still there and was disturbed to have to sleep next to my dead body. In the morning people were trying to explain to me why I couldnt come back home with them and I didnt understand. Mostly my dreams have been not so creepy though... just strange.
with my DD my dreams were so violent i thought i was having some kind of psychotic break down. i was extremely violent and abusive towards men. i never killed any of them in my dreams but had i did the same things in real life there definately would have been a lot of dead bodies around. my testosterone levels were really high (practically grew a beard) with her also, so i associated the dreams with that.
I've had multiple awful dreams of dead people in the streets and very detailed dreams of terrible things happening to people - some I know and others are more random or general. They've lessed as I near by 3rd trimester but for a while they were pretty terrifying. Now, I still have vivid dreams but less gruesome - though still weird.
Early this morning I had a dream about running amock in some really awesome salad bar that had all my favorites in it - I woke up feeling so up-beat and refreshed because that salad bar made be feel so happy in my dream. It's noon and I'm still giggling about it. So, look forward to those dreams later on and chalk up the terrible ones to crazy hormones paired with your natural anxiety & fears about pregnancy and raising a baby.
I don't really have any morbid dreams, but the dreams I do have are extremely real and I always remember them in the morning. Which is very odd for me. All of them are about the baby. One was when he was born, I was SUPER posessive. I wouldn't let anybody hold him! Another was about being in labor, and another recent one was trying to breastfeed and not being able to. They've all been related to the subjects I had been studying up on around then. Hah.
