2nd Trimester

Miscarriage Dream

Hello! I am 16 weeks pregnant with my first child. Last night I had a dream that I started bleeding and I was having a miscarriage. It was very real in my dream. Now today I keep thinking about it and I'm really upset about it. I don't have another doctors appointment for 3 weeks and I hate that I don't know what is going on in there. I also have an anterior placenta, so I have deliberately not allowed myself to buy a home Doppler because I know I'll get myself in a panic every time I can't find the heartbeat. Am I just being paranoid? Has anyone else had this sort of dream?

Re: Miscarriage Dream

  • Anxiety & hormones can produce some seriously messed up dreams. I do think you are being paranoid, but I sympathize with the paranoia. It's your subconscious working your fears out while you sleep. I wouldn't up too much weight on it.

    I had a lot of m/c dreams when I was pregnant with DS. Obviously it didn't happen, he's now a healthy, happy, very active toddler.

    The dreams are just your brain responding to your fears. Yeah, they suck, but try not to let them rattle you.

  • I had a dream last night that I was leaking blue fluid and it meant i was miscarrying. I also had a dream last night my father died. Pregnancy dreams have been terrible for me...

    With my first pregnancy I had two miscarriage dreams.  They were very vivid and I still remember them in detail.  I also dreamed that I was forced to leave my child minutes after giving birth and when I was allowed to go back to her I found her laying in the street.

    My son is 20 months old, the picture of health, and currently napping in his crib.  
  • Poor thing. I had a VERY inappropriate dream last night that I was in early labor and the hospital waiting room was McDonalds and there were people waiting to give birth in front of me, so I just had to sit in a red plastic chair while people ordered Big Mac's all around me.
  • I had that dream Saturday night and it was horrible, I woke up crying and paranoid! Luckily, I can feel my LO kick so I know he's okay but it is really tough without that reassurance. Hope the next 3 weeks pass quickly, hearing that HB is the best thing ever!

  • I also have had this dream about 3 or 4 times so far. Just last night I dreamt I was bleeding
  • It's reassuring to hear that other people have had the same dream and it's not just me. It's also reassuring that some of those people went on to give birth to normal, healthy babies. The whole thing is just nerve racking. I always feel helpless.
  • I didn't have any nightmare type dreams until after my Lo was born. During my pregnancy I had lots of really vivid but mellow dreams (its hard to explain). After she was born though I had really horrible nightmares of all sorts, like really vivid dreams that had me waking up screaming. My doctor told me it was just because my hormones were out of wack. They only lasted a few weeks and I haven't had any since
  • It's okay I had miscarriage dreams with my first pregnancy all the time. Mine would be very vivid & realistic too. I think it was because I thought that having a baby was too good to be true, so I was expecting something to go wrong. & my dreams projected that fear to me. But after I stopped thinking that way the dreams went away.
