Wild Dreams While Pregnant

Why Didn't Anybody Tell Me: Crazy Dreams

One of my expectant friends called me the other day to dish about the racy dream she had the night before.

By the end of the conversation, we were both in tears laughing about her insane and lewd subconscious trip.

It reminded me of the wild escapades that my own prego mind took while I slept.

Since hormones are raging, the surge of progesterone frequently adds to the intensity of pregnant women's dreams.

The recollection of the sleepy escapades may also be due to the repeated bathroom trips, interrupting the REM sleep cycles.

Did you have crazy dreams while expecting?

Yes, I KEPT dreaming I gave birth to a white cat. I've always called my baby 'little cat' since birth now, however weird it sounds to other people.

I kept having dreams that I was breast feeding kittens. I don't even have a cat so I'm not sure what that is all about. Their tiny kitten teeth really freaked me out though ;-)

I constantly had dreams that I was going to drop the baby. I was absolutely paranoid that he would just flop out of my arms. They were awful!

Sometimes I would actually dread going to sleep because the dreams were so intense.

I had some very crazy dreams when I was pregnant. I could usually recall most of them the next morning however they never made any sense whatsoever. I couldn't even explain them to my husband because they were so crazy.

Yes, I am having them now...and I don't like them. I am not one who usually reads into dreams but these have really been freaking me out. They are also in extreme detail.

I had some very crazy dreams! One that vividly sticks out was the one about a dolphin...that I gave birth to. As if that wasn't strange enough, I also breastfed the dolphin, although this was accomplished by some strange metal apparatus that went on my boob. Ah, pregnancy hormones.
