Hi everyone, welcome back to Dreaming of Diapers & Dimples! For this blog post I wanted to discuss something that has been happening to me more and more as of late. PREGNANCY DREAMS! That's right, dreams where I am pregnant and wake up without actually being pregnant. Doesn't my subconscious know how insensitive this is?
My last dream was a few nights ago and it was a weird one. I don't think that I have shared this with you all yet but I am a true believer in the after life, spirits, ghosts, etc. So much that I swear I've had some experiences that I cannot explain. One of those experiences being a reoccurring experience where I wake up in the middle of the night, sometimes multiple times, and I just know that my sweet grandma is in the room with me. I have no evidence nor have I ever "seen" her but I wake up suddenly and just know that she is there and somehow, that's comforting. I'm pretty use to it by now but the other night I woke up from having this odd dream where I was pregnant, I was gross and sweaty and kind of shook myself awake. When I woke up I had that same feeling where my grandma was in the room except, I had the feeling that multiple people were in the room and that they were standing over me staring at me. Yup. You read that right and I was totally freaked out. Again, I never see anything but it's an odd feeling. Anyway, I fell back asleep (somehow) and had a dream again except in my dream, there are faceless people standing all around me as I am sleeping and one of them says to me, "you know, pregnant women are more likely to see ghosts" and then I woke up to my alarm. How scary/silly is that? I obviously know that is not a fact but it was just a little odd.
DREAMERS! Isn't that so scary? It had me freaked out all day and I couldn't stop thinking about it.
I've had other dreams where I took a pregnancy test and it was positive, or I went to a restaurant or something and there was a blinking light in my face that said "PREGNANT" in huge letters. And each month that I've had these dreams - I've never been pregnant.
I don't always remember what happens in the dream but this cycle I have had so many that I decided to use Google to find out what they mean.
Here is what I found:
In summary, I shouldn't look too much into it. Apparently it means everything but actually being pregnant. My body is NOT trying to tell me something. Again, how cruel is that?! I don't have any new ideas, nothing new is going on in my personal life, work is going great. I have no idea what the dream could actually mean unless the new aspect in my life is a baby but one can only hope!
