In fact, just Friday night I was hobnobbing with Prince William & Princess whats-her-face. I don’t recall what was said, but apparently they found me quite fascinating.
OK, so this happened in my dream world, in between tossing & turning, sweating, scratching my itchy pregnant skin, and numerous bathroom trips. I tend to have wacky dreams, but hello pregnancy hormones. I have some of the most vivid, realistic (and strange) dreams ever.
So realistic in fact that one night I woke up and nearly clobbered my hubby. I was awake for several minutes and it still seemed real, and I gave him the hairy eyeball the rest of the day!
One of the weirdest dreams I had was a recurring dream I had when I was pregnant with my son. I would suddenly go from being pregnant to having a baby, but I didn’t have anything I needed. I had to try to get to the store without a car seat to get the things I needed. I’d walk to the store carrying the baby, and when I got there, I’d realize I wasn’t wearing any shoes. Just as I found the things I needed, the baby would turn into a shoe, and I’d try to slink out of store unnoticed, carrying the shoe. That dream stopped once we got the car seat installed and got a few other things ready. So, the significance of that one is fairly clear…except for the shoe part. I guess I need to Google the meaning of shoe dreams!
I also had a lot of dreams where I’d had the baby and a lot of people were visiting. I’d go hours without seeing the baby & find out someone gave it a bottle and I’d get all furious George about it. I also couldn’t seem to remember the baby’s name or whether it was a boy or a girl. My friend thinks that we’re our own best dream interpreters, and she’s right. I’m pretty sure that was me expressing my concerns over unwanted visitors and meddling family.
I’ve had a “surprise, it’s twins!” dream this pregnancy, and when I tweeted about it, @Momofthreeunder replied that she’d had the same dream…then had them about 2 years later. *gulp*
So am I alone here? Do you have weird dreams (pregnancy induced or not?) Care to share any particularly interesting ones?
