I have no idea why I had this dream, but I dreamt that my baby was born with the ears of a Chimpanzee (perfectly round, not human-like at all) and he also had a huge blonde curly afro that stood about 4 inches tall. His nose was HUGE and his face was wrinkly. He also looked like he was already a one year-old even as a newborn.
I don’t know if I am subconsciously afraid that I am going to have a really ugly baby, or if this is just another one of those crazy pregnancy dreams. In my dream I remember that I still loved him because he was my son, and I really don’t want to come across as shallow, but… dang he was ugly, LOL! I remember being scared about this before my first son was born and of course he was the cutest baby on the planet when he was born, so I am finding some comfort in that and telling myself not to worry.
Has anyone else had a dream like this? Is anyone else scared of having a really ugly baby?

I think everyone is scared of having an ugly baby, but I’ve never known anyone who thinks their baby is ugly after it’s born (even if it is). That’s a parent’s love for you!

All babies are sort of funny looking at birth and all parents think their baby is the most beautiful thing in the world. Sort of magic how that works!

Haha! I had a dream my baby looked like Spock. This was after watching The Big Band Theory before bed. I didn’t take anything from it. I also had a dream my baby was cross eyed and in the dream I was really upset but then they smiled this big goofy smile and I loved them regardless.
Then, right before my anatomy scan, I had a dream that the ultrasound was better than real-life and I saw this beautiful baby girl with big long eyelashes and rosey cheeks. I was so in love!
Shortly after, we found out it’s a girl 🙂
Hormones are weird. And the dreams they cause are strange.
I get nervous about what our baby will look like, but I can’t wait to meet her. I opted against a 3d/4d ultrasound because I want to meet her on her birthday.

Hah! I had to comment because I had the same kind of dream a few weeks ago. I felt like such a terrible person for having that dream! It started out as a nursery filled with everything Boy, even though in the dream baby was a girl, because we were so convinced we were having a boy and ended up being wrong(can you tell what I think about all the time?) So I had to use all boy clothes on her and I felt bad. Then, she was hideous! Like, looked like a super, super old lady baby. It reminded me of something out of a horror movie. It was the creepiest/weirdest thing ever! I blame it 100% on the hormones. Ultimately, we will love our baby no matter what he/she looks like..but I also doubt he/she will turn out anything like my dream!

I didn’t have dreams of my baby being ugly, BUT I did tell my doctor I was scared to have an ugly baby (as a joke, of course), and he said he hasn’t delivered an ugly one yet.
Continuing to be in a good mood, right when my son came out I asked my doctor, “Is he cute?” and my doctor said, “My streak of not delivering ugly babies continues.” We had a nice laugh over that 🙂

well, I had a dream my baby was a piece of French bread. Like you, I loved it anyway 🙂
