Dreams??

Okay, first off I wasn't really sure where to put this, so hope this is fine ;) Do you girls believe that your dreams are our subconcious expressing our feelings/fears, or do you think they're true??? Okay, so some background. I started bleeding last Satuday and knew right away that I had to be miscarrying (I have/still am in the process of it) but at the time the bleeding was still really light and mostly brown (sorry for TMI) Sunday was much of the same only some red mixed in, at this point I was still trying to be hopeful. Well, that night I had a very vivid dream, where the nurse and dr told me I had lost the baby and that they tested everything and the baby was a boy. I had felt right from the start that the baby was a boy, so maybe it was just because in my mind I already felt that way??? Have any of you had dreams like this during your loss? I had another dream a couple nights later where I actually saw the baby (not at all real, it was way bigger in my dream than it would've been at 7 weeks and was fully formed, just small) and I just held the baby and cried. I don't normally remember any of my dreams, so twice in one week is like a record or something. Oh one more thing to mention. My horoscope Tuesday morning said that a family member was leaving me but not to owrry because they would soon be back. I don't normally read much into those types of things, but that one has stuck with me. Okay, those are my ramblings for the day :)

***Child Mentioned***



I don't really know. I know that before DH and I were married (we were engaged at the time), I had a dream that we had a little girl. We went on to have a miscarriage and then were blessed with our DD. I believe firmly that the first baby we miscarried was a girl.

As for my most recent miscarriage, while we didn't dream about our baby or our loss, we had the strongest feeling that the baby was a boy.

I honestly think that we are given some sort of intuition into things, whether it's via dreams or whether it is just a feeling.

I say that if you had dreams and fully feel within you that your baby is a boy, then I think you should always remember HIM. I know that we named both of our babies that we lost. Our first loss, I was in the shower and my little angel girl's name was spoken to me in my head. I didn't think it - it was nowhere near what any of the names we had considered and I probably would never have used that name other than the fact that I heard it in my head. I believe her name was told to me. As for our little angel boy, we had two names picked out for a boy and we chose our favorite first name of the two and gave that name to him, along with my DH's middle name as his middle name.

Sorry to have rambled on. Just sharing how we felt things worked out for us. :)

By the way, your 3 little ones are adorable!

Hi Amy,

I haven't personally had dreams about miscarrying either before or during miscarriage, but I have had them afterwards. I do know that severaly other women on the board have had similar dreams.

(((HUGS))) chica. I hope that your horoscope comes true and you get a quick BFP. :)

Amy, I've had a recurring dream of Landon since losing him, it's always a little bit different, he's different ages, but always a little guy, in my dream, he always starts crying and when I go to pick him up, I can't, I can't ever pick him up - sometimes he'll be in a car seat or in a crib, once he was in a box(???) but I can't ever pick him up - and no matter the age, 6 months, 2 months, 12 months, I always know it's Landon. The last time I had this dream, it was a beachy-type scene, and Landon was about 18 months, and I had a little baby girl in my arms, I couldn't see her face, but I knew she was mine, and Landon started crying, and I tried to pick him up, but of course, I couldn't. This really has me believing that I'll get pg again, hopefully soon, and that it will be a girl. Also, Kris (my brother for those of you who don't know) said that after they lost their first baby, he had a dream of a little toddler boy and a little baby girl - he said he couldn't see either of their faces, but he knew they were his babies - and he has a boy and a girl now. I hope there's something to our dreams, if nothing else than our babies comforting us.

Torie - I wish that for you more than anything!!! I've never dreamed of my kids ahead of time, but I have dreamed of each of them while pregnant. With Donovan I dreamed that we had a little baby boy, but not much detail other than that. With Quinten, I had also dreamed that we were having a boy, again not much detail. With Lainey, I first had a dream that we got a phone call and the only thing the person on the other end said was "its a boy!" but after waking up I just knew they weren't talking about my baby, my BFF and my SIL (Shayne's sister) were also pregnant at the time, and I knew it was one of them (Misty had the boy). Later I had another dream and in it I was holding a little girls hand, we were walking away so I couldn't see her face either, and at that point I just knew I would be having a girl. Do you remember after Autumn died, that Angie had a dream that Autumn was older and she had a little boy? She does have a little boy now. I do believe we can see things in our dreams.
