I knew this was a “symptom” of being pregnant, but I have always had the occasional vivid, intense, crazy dream. However, now that i am pregnant, i swear i have the vivid, crazy dreams on a nightly basis. I don’t even bother telling Darling Husband about them anymore because there are so many it’s become normal for me now.
some of the ones that stick out to me though are when i dreamt that i was at my parent’s old house in my hometown and 4 of my friends went into labor at the same time ,in the house. i was just running all over the place trying to help everyone. After i woke up, i realized that the 4 friends in the dream were the 4 friends i have that most recently had babies in real life.
Another dream i did tell Darling Husband about because i couldn’t stop laughing about it was when i walked in on Darling Husband (in my dream) doing leg lifts in a thong, LOL. It was not the center of the dream, but when i woke up, that was the part i was focused on because only after i woke up did i realize how truly bizarre and hysterical it was.
what are some of your insane sleep time advenures?

@dynamic_duo: do I need to be pregnant to reply? LOL!
About a month ago I had four dreams in a week in which I was pregnant or had a newborn. It got to the point where I almost considered taking a test, just because they were so real! One time we had a boy, another time we had a kitten that turned into a human baby at some point.
My dreams are crazy weird most of the time anyway (I had one last summer in which I dreamt I was possessed and I woke up Darling Husband with my growling and attempts at stabbing him with my finger) so I’m kind of terrified if being pregnant makes them even more vivid!
eta: still laughing at the image of your Darling Husband doing leg lifts in a thong. Totes normal.

I definitely have some vivid ones pretty much every night, but I can’t remember any of them now (except one where Heath Ledger as the Joker was trying to decapitate me).
The ones I do remember, however, are vivid sex dreams, and I have them at least once a week. Not just normal sexy dreams, but full-on no-hands-needed climaxing dreams. I’d almost think Darling Husband was getting handsy while I was asleep, but I’m such a light sleeper that I’d definitely know.
I don’t mind them 🙂

@hisgoosiegirl: yes, you have to be pregnant to reply, so please go back and delete your comment! kidding, of course. ya i have always had weird vivid dreams too. i can’t say they have gotten more vivid, but definitely more frequent! Although a couple of weeks ago, i was having some difficulty remembering if conversations i had with Darling Husband had actually taken place or if i just dreamt them!
And speaking of stabbing, i will never forget the dream i had a few years ago that happened while i was reading Angels and Demons. Basically, it was a gruesome and disturbing dream that was definitely inspired by the ‘light reading’ i was doing right before bed….but somehow it resulted in my scratching my face (while i was still asleep) to the point of leaving a small scar that took months to fade! My friends actually didn’t believe me when i told them my cat did NOT do that to me! i still can’t believe i did that to myself. Luckily it was a one time occurence.

It’s not just the contents of the dreams but how real they are and how much you remember them!
Two recent ones I’ve had this week are people keep telling me how I’m showing already and I’m going to be huges (just what every woman wants to hear lol) Well I gave birth to a baby boy at 5 months and because all I keep hearing is how big my baby was going to be, he was 5pounds 6 oz and 24 inches. Tall skinny kid haha. I remember seeing all of the other mothers who had premature babies crying and my baby was almost ready to go home.
And then the other night I had a dream that I was covering for my husband (I don’t know for what) and I killed a man and sunk his work van. Then someone else found out about it so I killed them. So the rest of the night I spent being on the run and hiding and I was a fugitive so I couldn’t see my kid. It was just weird and exhausting.
