Baby dreams

I have been having vivid dreams lately. I had one last night and I was having a baby. All my dreams about having babies always seem to start when I am either in labor or just had the baby. I don't ever really have pregnancy dreams. Is that weird? Last night I had I dream that I was in labor and no one could tell me what I was having and I was very distraught about it. They kept telling me that if I was a good mother I would wait until I delivered. I was in labor for 2 days and still not having the baby. No one was concerned and I was yelling at everyone! They kept saying I was irrational and probably would not make a good mother. I woke up very sad about that.

A couple weeks ago I had a dream that I had twins. They rushed me to the hospital because I had stomach pains. I did not know I was pregnant. they put me under and when I woke I was at home and they told me I had twin boys. the problem was my whole family had twins at the same time so there were babies all over the place and I could not find my babies because I never saw them when they were born. no one would tell me where they were. In fact no one was even talking to me. It was like I was invisible

I am not a dream interpreter but I'm thinking these have to do with my fears about maybe the reason I can't get pregnant is because I won't be a good mother or some ridiculous thought like that. And also about the fact that I have had 4 pregnancies but never got to see the babies because of the miscarriages. It's just weird because there seems to be a lot of these lately and I am not entirely sure why. I haven't been obsessing anymore then usual. I just usually have dream where I don't see faces or they don't completely make sense and so they are hard to explain but lately I wake up and feel like they actually happened. They then stick with me all day. I hate that when you can't shake the feeling from dreams.

I wish they were foretelling me that I was soon going to be unexpectantly having a baby but we all know that really is a dream. One I wish was coming true but know it is going to be a while and many dollars before that happens. UGH!

Oh that sounds exhausting, I'm so sorry. I hope your sleep is soon filled with nothing but deep and peaceful rest.

I've been having some strange dreams lately (I think it's a med I'm taking) and have had a couple of really weird pregnancy dreams. The whole dreaming always seems so exhausting though.

Sorry to hear your having these dreams.

check out for your interpetation. It may sound/be silly but you might find it interesting.

Sounds like you have hit the nail on the head with what the dreams mean, but that doesn't make them less upsetting when you wake up! I hope they pass -- or better yet, are replaced by happy ones.

I think we all have dreams like that every so often. But they don't mean anything. Just all your thoughts meshing together to form images.

I hope you have some happier dreams soon.

Dreams like that always leave me feeling strange the next day. I'm no expert on them either, but they are a curious thing. I think they are often directly related to some fear or emotion we are feeling, but I don't necessarily think they always "mean" something.

At any rate, I hope your dreams are more peaceful soon!
