weird dreams

December 16, 2009

I was just over at It’s Your Movie, and Erin just posted about a weird dream she had. I suddenly remembered the onslaught of weird pregnancy dreams I’m ALREADY having.

I’ve actually always had weird dreams, but when I’m pregnant I guess they get especially weird. Here are some highlights from this pregnancy and the last. Again with the lists. I know I know. Just go with it.

1. When I was pregnant with Evangeline, I dreamt I gave birth to a baby tiger. I was trying to breastfeed immediately after birth, but the sharp teeth were causing a problem. Then, within fifteen minutes, the tiger morphed into a fully clothed sixteen year old African-American girl. I continued to try to breastfeed but felt so awkward about it that I just couldn’t. Weird.

2. This pregnancy, I dreamt I gave birth to twins in a dentist chair . I pushed the first one out and my mom took him (a boy) and away so I could deliver the second. She came back while I was pushing and told me that the baby was actually a hermaphrodite. I was so mad at her for telling me this that I yelled at her to leave. Then, later the doctor told me that the baby was not a hermaphrodite but simply had very small testicles. WHY oh WHY am I having these kind of weird bizarre and kind of messed up dreams?

I used to be really into dream analysis, as in the concept that everything you dream means something. Then, I started having these kinds of dreams and the more that I tried to analyze the dreams, the more freaked out I got. So I kind of just stopped believing that everything meant something for my sanity.

    Oooh interesting!

    I used to have that dream too, where the baby would morph into different things. I also had dreams about baby tigers and kittens a TON when I was pregnant, though for me I think it is because I would get carpal tunnel in my sleep and my hand would start tingling/stinging and it felt like sharp cat teeth biting me…

    I once had a dream when I was pregnant with Clark that the skin on my stomach stretched so thin around him that I could actually see his face. And you know what? When he was born he looked just like he had in my dream!

      Yeah, what’s with the cats and tigers thing? Someone else told me they used to have dreams about that too. So bizarre!

    That’s hilarious (esp the second one!) Sometimes dreams are so vivid they seem like they must mean something….a couple nights ago I dreamt of a fully loaded pomegranate tree that I felt compelled to pick so the fruit wouldn’t be wasted. I was so freaked by that one when I woke up that I immediately took a pregnancy test (which turned out to be totally unecessary, but reassuring). I mean pomegranates- how symbolic can you get?!

      That’s hilarious! I love that you were picking pomegranates. I haven’t had any fruit dreams yet, but I’ve still got six and a half months!

    Wow…I thought I had weird dreams, but you win! I just dreamed no less than 9 times during my pregnancy that I was at Disney World.

      Well, Disney World is not a bad dream at all!! Hopefully I will have one of those coming up soon!
