Dream interpretations

Does anyone study dream interpretations? Normally I don't pay much attention to what I dream about at night but the last few days have been significant dreams.

My mom said she had a dream the other night that I announced I was PG with twins (!!!). That's not such a bad dream but last night I had a dream that my stepfather "might" have died and an even more vivid dream that my DH died. It was present day and I was so upset in the dream that I woke up crying. I didn't want to tell DH about the dying dreams for fear I would worry him.

What do these dreams mean??

Christine- I am very amateur at dream interpretation, but my grandparents are really into it, so I call them with many of my dreams.

Thanks Suzie! Makes me feel SO much better that it's not a premonition of death.

Totally OT but since you're here and I was going to PM you about this...I know you said you pump a few times during the school day. Did they give you a private room or do you have to use the teachers lounge?

I'll be finally doing my student teaching in January and was wondering where I would pump. In my state, I think they only have to give you time and a place to pump until baby is a year old, which for me would be until the end of Feb, but I have a feeling Selin is going to be an extended nurser, which is fine by me. :-)

Thanks for your input!!

Christine - I just wanted to let you know that when DH and I got married, about 3 months before we got married I was having a dream almost every night that he died. Sometimes I killed him (I stabbed him, strangled him, shot him), sometimes he was killed by others (shot in a gas station) or by weird circumstances (carbon monoxide poisioning, shark attack etc). When I talked wtih others about it and read up about it I was told that it was because of changing life circumstances.

I know some people have dreams where stuff does come true, but I have only known one person that that happened too. my friend karin one time dreamed that she was charged 2500 dollars for something small at the coop. I was with her the night she dreamed it and I was in her dream and then that day we went to the coop and she was actually charged 2500 dollars for a bag of chips. it was freaky, but that's the only time I have known someone to have had a dream come true.

I wouldn't worry about it. I am sorry it upset you, ever since I was pregnant my dreams have been much more vivid and even last night I had a dream that I was in a very bad situation with a terrorist and a bomb threat and stuff. I hope you don't have that dream again.

As Suzie said, I doubt those dreams are a premonition... in fact, in our popular culture it is said that dreaming about someone's death "lengthens his/her life", :) Now seriously, I agree that it can be resentment or adjusting to a changing situation in your relationship with DH and you stepfather.

Thanks Jess and Mari. I can relate that to DH but not sure about my stepfather because our relationship has not really changed. The only thing I can think of is that I constantly feel guilty that he only gets to see Selin like once/mo but my mom sees her 2x/wk when she banishes for us. He's having some health issues and has a home health nurse on the days my mom comes up here so he isn't able to come with her. Also, he's 77 and although he looks 10 years younger and has always taken care of himself, I am conscious of the fact that he's not going to be around forever. Also, he adores Selin and really cherishes the time he spends with her. Even more so now that we don't get to see my stepbrothers kids anymore so my parents feel like Selin is their only grandchild now.

Ugh, stupid autocorrect on my phone...in the 3rd sentence I meant to say when my mom babysits for us, not banishes for us.
