I know that they say you will have the most vivid and crazy dreams while pregnant.

Preggo dreams are unfortunately very vivid sometimes and feed on our subconscious fears of something being wrong with the baby. I've had some real doozies. I wouldn't worry about it.

I too have had some horrible vivid dreams lately and I had them with both of my other pregnancies as well. I agree that I think sometimes our minds feed on our subconscience and fears. I wouldnt worry about it (easier said than done!) but you can always bring it up to your OB at your next appt.

Ive had pretty much the same dreams with both my previous pregnancies and I have two healthy boys..I know its stressful but most likely unwarranted worry..Try to relax and take your dreams with a grain of salt..Also I know certain foods cause me to have distressing Pizza before bed for me..LOL

I haven't had any really crazy dreams yet that I can remember.... but I know that when my first daughter was only a couple of weeks old I dreamed that I was shopping with her at the mall and set her down (in her carseat) and I guess I forgot about her... I went and tried stuff on, realized I'd left my baby and ran back to where I left her and the carseat was gone - just the diaper bag was there. I was terrified! Then I realized that my baby was IN the DIAPER BAG and someone had just stolen our carseat! I woke up and I was SO upset!!!

I guarantee that dream was triggered by lack of sleep, stress from a new baby, and a fear of anything bad happening to her.

I'd say you've just got typical pregnancy worries. Hang in there and try not to worry!
