Two nights ago I dreamed I had a miscarriage and I held my little shrimp baby in my arms before wrapping her up in paper towels and burying her in a shallow grave. I know it was just a dream (I always have super vivid dreams…last night I beat up a lady who called me out on my race, a few nights ago I was shooting zombies) but the image of my shrimp baby WON’T leave my head 🙁
I’m so afraid that I will be infertile! I think that’s why the dream has worried me so much. I’m adopted, and I don’t know my real birthday, don’t have any info on my bio parents, and will probably never get the chance to meet people who share my features, different gestures, and my dna. That is, unless I have babies. And I never thought I’d say this, but I REALLY want babies (eventually).
Ugh. I don’t really know what else to say. No reason to even post this here except I need to get it out and I’m too embarrassed/ashamed to tell my friends in real life.

Those sorts of dreams really suck. 🙁 I don’t know my father, so it’s like half my medical history is just gone–I understand how you feel. I think the best thing is to try to let go of your fear of infertility. I don’t know what the odds of a young woman in good health (assuming you don’t have any major health problems) being infertile are, but I’m guessing they’re rather slim. And though this isn’t a big consolation to some women, you can still adopt or foster if you can’t have biological children for some reason. You can still have babies! Just in a different way.

Aww sweetie, don’t worry, get it off your chest, that’s what we are here for. I’m also someone who has such vivid dreams they tend to freak me out! This dream is just a way for you to deal with the natural stresses in your life. I dream of the day that I will have a child, but also have nightmares that it will never happen. It’s only natural. Just try to think of happy things tonight and maybe you will have a wonderful dream that can make you forget about this one!

Dreams when someone dies just mean that you’re losing something in your life (something in your life is dying). I had dreams of people dying when I was having a falling out with my good friend. Maybe you’re feeling like your losing your single life, a friend or another type of relationship, or something else.
Unless you’ve been thinking about infertility a lot, than it could just be b/c you’re thinking about it. It does NOT mean that you are though, it’s just your thoughts.

Aw…thanks guys…I’m trying to get my mind off of it but it’s hard.

I’m sorry. 🙁 I’m a vivid dreamer, too, often they’re dreams of being chased by a murderer or something terrible happening, so I can relate!
Take comfort in the fact that dreams have more to do with the little things you’ve seen or thought of that day. It was a terrible dream, but it’s not reality, at least you can be grateful for that. 🙂

@lilyfaith: This is very true! A nightmare is a lot different from having to live something like that in real life, so I’m grateful at least I woke up and it was all a dream!!
