Pregnancy dream thread

I don't know about you all, but my dreams have been so vivid and easy to recall these days, I'd love to hear if you are experiencing the same. Got any funny/interesting/weird dream stories?

I'll start:
Recently I dreamed I gave birth to triplet vampire babies who all had their vampire teeth when they were born. To feed them, I had to get on the floor with them and crawl backwards while wiggling my toes at them till they pursued my feet, grabbed on, latched on, and sucked blood from my big toes. Gross I know! 🙈 It's a sacrifice being a mother!

Re: Pregnancy dream thread

  • I dreamed I went all the way to work without shoes and realized when I got in my elevator. Turns out in reality the next day I was almost to work when my husband called and said I left my PC at home… I think my brain was working but didn’t give me the correct clue…

  • I keep having dreams that DH adopts and brings home a bunch of random animals. 

    I also had one where I went to this pandemic style estate sale, where things like toilet paper was up for sale. And I was like, “well, DS did say he wanted some for Christmas.” And his eyes light up with excitement. “$4 for one roll? I guess that’s ok, just be sure to pick out the fullest one.”

  • @minnie_yoga_mama ahhh why did you have to give up chocolate??
  • I had a dream where I found out my husband had a secret wife (I was the other woman) and they couldn't have kids so he knocked me up to give the kid to her. So, he left me and then asked if I could pump for the baby since that was best for him, so I did. 

    It felt very real and I was not in a good mood the next day. My husband and I have been together for over 10 years so it wouldn't be a very efficient plan but I didn't like how realistic it felt.
  • Omg @robbenson how very Handmaids Tale!

    So far all of my dreams are just very inappropriate adult content filled with extremely random people that I never found attractive but now this has me second guessing my taste?!
  • I had one several weeks ago about delivering a baby out of a toilet (as in its head was coming up out of the hole in the bottom). Once it was out, I realized it looked like a baby version of my ex-boyfriend.

    Also have sexy dreams probably once a week or so. In one dream, H and I both woke up early and started getting snuggly. Then in real life, he got up and left the room, and I was like NOOO, where are you going?!? 😆

    H has had some pregnancy/baby/birth dreams too. We’re reading a Bradley method book, and he dreamed about coaching me through labor.

  • I tend to have vivid dreams in general, but I've had a couple fun ones recently. The other day I dreamed that my best friend and mom took me to the hospital so I could start pumping (even though I was still pregnant). And I was having the HARDEST time changing into a nursing bra. I kept putting it on inside out or backwards, and when I finally thought I had it on, I ended up having a shirt on underneath. I was so annoyed. And then my mom and best friend were arguing about the best way to use a breast pump. And then this guy I've known my whole life happened to walk in, which was really embarrassing, but my mom told him to stay because she wanted to chat and I was like....what?!? Needless to say, I woke up really frustrated and a little claustrophobic from putting on bras in my sleep.
    The other dream I had was last night, and I was with my family and I was holding our new little girl and playing with her, and everyone started giving me advice and telling me how I was doing things wrong, and I was trying to be patient but internally I was like, leave me alone! I didn't ask for help! When I woke up I realized that that was probably a pretty accurate dream! Haha.
  • I’ve had some crazy dreams this pregnancy but none that have stuck with my like this one from my last pregnancy. 

    Background: my sister had a really weird roommate who told everyone she was in college but literally never left her room. My sister wasn’t even sure how she ate or showered. She would only come out when my sister wasn’t home and it was all very very weird and creepy.

    I had a dream my sisters roommate was killing people and mailing out their body parts. I had dreamt that I received a hand and foot in a random package. I woke up very distraught and wanted my sister to kick her out ASAP. Luckily the school year was almost done. 😳
  • I don't normally have nightmares very often in normal life, but for awhile I was having a whole bunch of them and I wasn't a fan.

    But what I really need to stop is "Grandma Dreams". Before we knew the sex of this baby, my mom had a dream that she met her granddaughter and she told my mom her name and things about her and stuff. Now every time I talk to my mom she's like "when you're ready to know your baby's name, let me know and I'll tell you." and I don't want to know. I'm already annoyed she was right about the sex. But at the same time I'm like... what if we love the name? Since we can't come up with a name at all. But I don't want my mom to be right. Also she apparently had the dream about the perfect baby shower for me and some other dreams about the baby that she's taking as prophesy. It annoys me more than it probably should. haha.
  • @aloha_mama @monstera13 @dinomeetsjedi So after we talked about doing a half marathon in Disney yesterday I dreamt we did it last night!!! The one we decided on was at Aulani resort in Hawaii though instead of Disney World, so we all decided to take the “shortcut” by staying in Texas, and then driving across the “Hawaii bridge” for 15 min until we were in Hawaii. 😂 
  • @dinomeetsjedi I would also be very annoyed by these "prophesy" dreams. It feels a little bit like she's overstepping boundaries and she gets to name the baby, etc. To me it seems like she's feeling a bit entitled, which will only get worse once baby comes. 
  • I've had a couple of weird dreams the last few nights.
    1. I felt a hair in my mouth so I tried to get it out but realised it was attached to the back of my tongue like it grew there. And I was pulling it to pluck it out :s Then there were more and it was just very gross. When I told DH he was even more grossed out than I was lol
    2. My husband revealed that his name was not actually his name, and that he was in fact called something else. I was so angry that he had been lying to me for years. Super random but definitely an improvement on the first dream!
  • @Blondesweety444 My mom can definitely be entitled. It has just barely been a couple years before I turned 30 that my mom finally realized I'm an adult and able to make my own choices and stopped trying to tell me how to live my life constantly and trying to have input in everything I choose to do. Our relationship improved a lot and now that I am pregnant she is back to trying to tell me how I should do everything and wants to try to force things on me (like her 30 year old crib and high chair, stomach sleeping, and some of her parenting practices that I don't think made us very healthy) so I have a lot of new boundary enforcing to try to figure out with her. She's just not great at taking no.
  • That sounds difficult @dinomeetsjedi and not always a fun time. But sounds like you’ve got a good mindset and able to enforce healthy boundaries for yourself. Definitely going to have to reestablish some boundaries once baby comes. People tend to get a bit crazier than even their normal crazy when babies arrive. I couldn’t even be in the room when my MIL would come to visit for quite a while because it made me so ragey. 🤷🏼‍♀️
  • @Blondesweety444 @dinomeetsjedi Ugh, the crazy that comes out in people around babies and parenting is infuriating. I hate that entitlement when people think you’re doing things wrong because you’re not doing it their way. I still have a lot of issues with my MIL— she came to visit when DD was 2 months old and had a lot to say about the state of my house, how I breastfed anywhere and everywhere (and for longer than the first three days of DD’s life), our cloth diapers, etc. Lots of boundary building and learning how to say no. And lots of hiding in our bedroom to “breastfeed” (aka play games on my phone and read my book lol)
