So, apparently I’ve been having a little baby fever lately:
Last night I had a dream that I was pregnant. It was a total surprise, I didn’t even realize it until my belly “popped” a little and I was like “woah, I’m pregnant”. Everyone was excited and happy and talking with me about the baby (I also had sideburns and a friend said I needed to do something about them before we could talk again), but then this little fairy came and told me she took my baby away, and when I asked why she would do that, she said she didn’t think that I REALLY wanted it. I started crying and said that honestly, I did. The fairy said she couldn’t undo it. So I had a pregnant belly and no baby.
I am not going to lie, this was probably one of the most upsetting dreams I’ve ever had. We are not TTC or anything like that yet, but I know I want a baby, and I know we’ll have try to have one after we’re married. So, I don’t know why this upset me so much, but it did.
Also, I’m not supersitious or anything, but this does, for whatever reason, freak me out a little:
Every woman in the department I work in has been unable to conceive. They’ve all tried, and they all couldn’t. They’re all very past their days of babies, but I’m just getting close to mine, so I wonder if every woman they hire is unable? I know it sounds silly, but I just wonder how come they all weren’t able to!? There’s 5 of them!

I have to admit, that is a little freaky.
On a semi-related note, a nurse I know who was pregnant at the same time as a lot of her co-workers told me that all the babies born (including hers) in that group of co-workers had severe health issues, makes me wonder if it was the work environment had anything to do with it?
If there are any health concerns/safety/exposure issues in your department, talk to your doctor about it and/or research to see if it has any correlation to fertility, at the very least it will educate you either way.
On the other hand, if all the other women in your department are beyond the ‘highly fertile’ years that could explain why they havent been able to concieve. Also there could be a history of fertility issues in their families too. Who knows?
Hope you can shake your freaky fairy dream 🙂

@unequivocally: Thanks! I totally think I’m being irrational. I work at a desk, in an office, at a computer. The 5 ladies are all different generations, ranging mostly from 40 – 60-ish. None of them are currently trying, but when they were at their most fertile, they couldn’t conceive.
It just seems so strange that none of them could!

Before DH and I were even engaged I had a dream that I got pregnant and gave birth. I gave birth squatting over a large tin bucket and when I picked the baby up, it’s eyes were black. I’m not talking dark colored pupils… there was no white…
I remember it like it was yesterday.

Can I tell you that I have a similar freaky fear? When we bought our house that we currently live in, we found out that the first couple who lived there divorced and had no children, and the second couple tried their hardest, but were never able to have children. I’m currently pregnant, but my doctor told me that my chances of miscarrying in the next 2 weeks are very high.
I’m so scared that the house is under some kind of curse and we’ll never be able to have children of our own. So you’re not silly for fearing that…especially after such a crazy dream! I just wanted to let you know that you aren’t alone :o)

@firsttimemom: creepy! I think I’d remember that one like yesterday too! I wonder what it meant!?
@2PeasinaPod: I’ve followed your story, and I hope hope hope that everything will go well for you. You’ve been in my thoughts these last few days! It just does seem strange that these things happen, I mean, they could have hired a ton of other women, but only hired ones that couldn’t conceive. Like, what are the odds? Was it a question on their interview so they would have to give time off!? haha.. That’s creepy about your house too…

It is just so darn creepy the kinds of dreams that we have.

@2PeasinaPod: No kidding, and when it’s not babies, it’s weddings and when it’s not weddings, it’s random, like… having sideburns…
