So I haven’t posted in a while, but I feel the need to share this. If this seems a little rambly I apologize because I am fighting off tears that just sprang from out of nowhere. So I am getting married in 5 months. We both decided that we will not begin TTC for at least 2-3 years after marriage. I am okay with that. So last night like I was helping my soon to be sister-in-law with her bouquet and my Brother’s bouttonniere. We were talking about children and babies, etc. We had a great conversation. So, I come home talk to FI for a little while and then went to sleep. I had this dream about a beautiful baby girl with a gorgeous head full of curly dark hair, she looked like me, and had FI’s features as well. When I say I was smitten with this child, I can’t even describe the feeling. I watched myself give birth to her in the dream…it was so surreal. During the dream, I was feeding her formula and she wasn’t taking well to it, so I begin breastfeeding. She latched on right away, and I remember wincing a little from the pain but in that very moment I literally felt like my heart would explode from the bond of love I felt at that moment. The dream was so real it was so odd. The funny thing is we were still planning our wedding when I gave birth to her. I remember talking to FI in the dream saying that I was glad that she came before the wedding (she was about 3 weeks early). Througout the dream I would be out and about and I would miss her so terribly when I was out and I would go back home, when I got ther I would nurse her and we would just stare at each other. I remember at this moment I woke up and felt “Oh my God that was so real”, I instantly missed this baby the moment I woke up. I got up to use the bathroom and then got back in bed only to fall asleep and go right back to the dream with this beautiful baby girl!!! When I woke up from this second dream I remember feeling sad that it was over because I wanted to spend more time with her. Now I sit here in this seat typing this post and I am really missing this baby. The part that is so weird to me is that it was only a dream and yet I feel so connected to this baby girl. It was so surreal.
Thanks for listening bees I just needed to share this with all of you supportive ladies.

I can relate. I had a dream last night that I was pregnant and since I know FI isn’t ready for kids, it was a bad thing, and I thought from the moment I told him that he was going to leave me. He didn’t, but he was angry (not at me, but at the situation – I was on BC and still taking it when I “found out”).
I woke up and told him about it but it had me so upset!

That’s so cool:) I had a dream about my daughter last night too! It was fuzzy, but when I was little I played with these Madeline dolls that I adored and I was playing with a little baby girl with the same dolls. In my dream I knew it was my daughter. It’s really comforting to have these dreams right now since I’m feeling hopeless about ttc.
A couple years ago I had a dream I was in a field chasing after a girl with long black curly hair in a white dress. I was calling “Vivien!” (that’s what I’m going to name my daughter, but I didn’t know that at the time of the dream) and I woke up right before she turned around.
I think we’re sent these dreams as gifts. I have positive pregnancy test dreams when I feel depressed and I’m convinced I’m infertile.

Ah yes. Those are such wonderful dreams! I’ve had them too. I love it when it happens but it’s so hard to let go of in the morning. Last night I dreamed there was a toddler in need of a family and so J and I decided to adopt him. It must have been a baby kind of night! 😉

I have dreams about babies all the time (which is weird because we want kids but not for another 4 years or so), and then I miss them so much when I wake up and they’re not there. It’s so surreal.

I had a dream a couple of nights ago that we had twins… I could see what they looked like and they had names and it was SO detailed down to the colors and patterns on their baby blankets and such… when I woke up, I immediately though “oh! I need to feed the babies! It’s been too long since their last feeding!” and I was just full of adrenaline and ran toward the guest room (where my sleepy brain thought the twins were).
I got about halfway across our apartment before I fully woke up and remembered that we don’t have kids. CRAZY.

My SO had a dream a few months back where he was playing with a little girl who was just the most precious thing ever. In the dream he loved her more than anything she went missing and was in trouble and he fought to get her back. He woke me and told me about the dream and the intense sense of loss that he had when he woke up. He was misty-eyed as he told me this.
Ever since then, we’ve been talking about kids a lot more. It’s comforting to know we’re on the same page.
At the same time, I haven’t had a dream yet where I’ve had a kid. I’ve been way preggers in dreams before (once with the entire female cast of Friends – THAT was weird!) but never a child of my own. I kind of wish I did.

aww! i can relate a bit because i’ve always tended to have really vivid dreams that stay with me for days!
i’m 31 weeks pregnant and having a boy. but i recently had a dream that i gave birth and the baby was a girl! my ob looked up at me after she was born and said ‘oh, we were wrong! it’s a girl!” i always wanted a girl, but i am so happy and excited to have a healthy happy little boy too. anyway, the little girl’s face was so vivid in my dream and i felt such a strong bond to her in my sleep. it was surreal! for days afterwards i felt like i had met my daughter, she was so vivid in my mind. the mind is an amazing thing…you never know, it could be some sort of sign!

I haven’t had any dreams recently but a long time ago, when DH and I were just friends, I had a baby dream. In it I saw a beautiful little girl in a pink, winter’s dress with light brown, curly hair. She was just standing there, looking at me. She was a perfect mix of us. I knew she was mine and his.
It was so weird because back then, I swore I didn’t want children. I wasn’t even fully aware that I liked him in that way! Years later, we fell in love, moved in, bought a house, got married. Now we’re just waiting for our little one to arrive. I hope she comes soon!
Maybe it is a sign I hope so.
