After an onslaught of baby dreams for a week straight, the last two nights I dreampt about my ex BF’s that I dated before H. They were so vivid and disturbing, and those two guys are the last thing from my mind so why?! It is bothering me because the one last night I was telling my ex I was getting married in a few days and so in love with him still, and talking to him and his sister. Both of these exes were terrible partners and nothing compared to H, so, while I was in love at the time, don’t think/believe I have any deep-rooted emotions for them. But my dreams have been so life-focussed lately, and serious, not t omention emotional! I had one dream where I was talking to my dead father in law and he was telling me something is different about me and I should go get a pregnancy test.
Um, any pop psychologists 101 that want to take a poke at what is going on in my brain these days?
And, is this normal?

I am no expert but don’t read into it.
I have had weird dreams about exes. Mind you my husband & I have been together for almost 6 years & started dating when I was 15.. FIFTEEN. So my last “ex” before him I was 13. LOL
I remember your post from a couple days ago so maybe you are just really stressed & have alot on your mind. Dreams are weird & we cannot control them. But your dream is not letting you know you are in love with an ex. The guy I dreamed about I dated when I was 13. THIRTEEN. lol I never loved him & my dream was not trying to tell me anything. It was a weird random dream, that is all.

Also let me add again, stress can cause really vivid dreams I believe! So all of your dreams could be adding up to you just having alot on your mind. Try to relax before bedtime!

I used to have dreams like that too. I wondered if it was just some part of my mind sorting out the fact that I was committing myself to one person for the rest of my life. (After so many years of serial relationships.) Also, while I certainly wouldn’t want to be with anyone else, there were a few good aspects about the exes I dreamt about and I probably needed to let go of the things I did like about them that are a bit different from my guy now.

The old southern interpretation is the people you are dreaming about is never about them it is about the opposite. For example if you were dreaming about your mate then it would be your ex’s.

I think it must be pretty common. I have dreams about two abusive exes. In both cases the guys think we’re together, it’s always congenial.
Makes no real sense to me. I’ve been with DH for 9yrs now and he has always been deeply respectful toward me, it’s his nature. Heck, my therapist even told me I finally hit the jackpot this time.
So I think the ex dreams are maybe, for me, just making that point. Especially since I feel no strong emotion toward the very abusive exes in the dreams.
My question would be, when you dream about an ex, what emotions are you having?
