Scary Nightmare

I had a weird dream last night and I know that most of my dreams have been weird, but this one was about the baby and it was scary.

I was sitting somewhere not sure where I was and DH was gone, he wasn't around, probably at work or something and all of a sudden my stomach opened up right at the top of my uterus and her little fingers came out of it. That's freaky thing #1. So I had her, she was early, but I am far along in my pregnancy in my dream, but when I delivered her (which I have no memory of happening in the dream) she came out with a tail, two legs, two arms, pointy eyes(like that of an alien) no hair, transparent skin, and she was both a boy and a girl, she had a vagina, but she had 6 penis'. But the doctor wouldn't tell me what was wrong with her, they had her on a feeding tube and oxygen, they had a diaper on her right away and they whisked her off so I couldn't see what was wrong. They would let me hold her finally, but it took awhile.

All the time DH isn't there. I finally find out what's wrong with her and they won't let me take the tubes out even though she can breathe just fine all of a sudden. DH finally shows up and wants nothing to do with the baby or me. He wants to be as far away from her as possible because she is this weird alien thing. I am scared, but more scared for her health than how she appears....

It was the weirdest thing. I usually try to figure out what my dreams mean. Before we went on vacation, DH confessed that he had a small slip - nothing big, just masturbation and he told me so it's MAJOR progress and I am very happy that he told me so I am wondering if it's just leftover from that...So weird, it's stuck with me so vividly all day long and I can't shake the scared worry I was feeling in the dream.

Thanks for listening, just had to get it out.

That is FREAKY!

Anyway, I'm sure in a general sense it is expressing your fears that something might be wrong with the baby. And the normal fears of rejection and abandonment; which grow in PGcy since you have more to lose by being abandoned.

But yeah, I'm sure it is just expressing your fears and in that sense, it is pretty normal for a pregnancy dream, I think!

Ugh - that sounds super freaky, but it does sound like a "typical" pregnancy nightmare (abandonment, health issues with the baby). I have been having a lot of dreams about DH leaving lately, and it sucks :( I haven't been dreaming too vividly about the baby yet, but I'm sure it'll come.

Hope you feel okay now! I know after dreams like that, I feel weird the rest of the day sometimes.

Jessica,


I can totally understand feeling unsettled after a dream like that. I would be too! I agree with the others though that this is totally normal during PGcy. In fact, I still have crazy dreams and I am nearly 4 months PP! Recently, I've been having dreams where I'm with Selin but in situations where I need to fear for our lives like burglary, attack, etc. I should actually bring it up to my therapist next week, now that I think about it.


You can rest assured that you will not have an alien baby!! :-D

Thanks ladies. It irked me yesterday but I am fine about it now. Looking back I am sure you are all right it's normal fears and as I am now in the single digits before the birth I am just freaking out a little. Plus I was having some wine this week with dinners and stuff and I am sure that's why too, thinking I did something to her.

Thanks for letting me know I am not the only one :)

I had a dream about 3 weeks before Maxim was born that I birthed a large round (like a frisbee) beetle with tons of legs and no eyes. It was black and ugly and I was crying my head off in the hospital about taking pictures of my ugly baby.

Yep...totally normal to have weird dreams. It was the only weird dream I had all of the PG....I had loads of sex dreams though and one dream about birthing a baby girl.
