After hearing that actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum is having some wild pregnancy dreams, I couldn't help but laugh and think to myself, "Oh honey, I've been there -- what you're experiencing is totally normal.
Jenna took to Twitter to ask for advice about her new found crazy dreams, which include "flying on a magic carpet while presenting at the Golden Globes."
Honestly, that doesn't sound too weird at all, considering the kind of dreams I had while preggo.
The wackiest pregnancy dream I can recall having is delivering my baby, which was a girl, and she was no bigger than the size of a mouse. She came out, I freaked out, but everyone in the room assured me she was totally normal. I then got up out of the hospital bed, put her in my pocket, and my husband and I went to the airport (though I forget where exactly we were heading).
We had a few drinks at the bar, and everyone was looking at me weird, and that's when I realized I still had my hospital gown on, which meant that I'd put the baby into an imaginary pocket. I started screaming, and we searched EVERYWHERE for her. And the next thing I knew, we were at the police station, and I was being handcuffed because I'd lost my baby. And then I woke up.
Strange right? Well, maybe not that strange. I asked around on Facebook and Twitter to see what other crazy pregnancy dreams people had had -- and there are some real doozies out there.
Here are 16 of the most bizarre pregnancy dreams you will ever hear.
- Last night I dreamt I was doing a triathlon with Giuliana Rancic and we became close friends. Did I mention I was five months pregnant doing this? Damn, I'm so athletic in my dreams.
- I dreamt that someone was trying to break into our house with a hammer so they could cut the baby out of me and steal it.
- My weirdest one (besides the sex dreams) was the dream I gave birth to my first child and she was a puppy. Only, I was the only one who could see she was a puppy. Everyone else saw her as a little girl. I was horrified and running through the hospital trying to find a doctor who could see her as a puppy and fix her. My husband kept saying, "What is wrong with you, she is beautiful!" LOL
- I dreamt that my baby came out as a Muppet ...
- I dreamt that me and my baby were falling in an endless dark pit and I couldn't catch her ... I had that dream twice ... scared the shit outta me.
- I swam in a bed of lettuce ... seriously ... a huge pool filled with iceberg lettuce!! Clearly I was deficient in something.
- Me, the baby, my husband, and my mom were all in my womb preparing the baby for delivery, explaining to her what would happen. Second weirdest was standing on the beach with a tsunami coming and walking to a palm tree, climbing up, holding on, and watching it come and all the destruction it caused, and me and the baby being just fine.
- In the '80s: dreamt we went camping with Boy George & we were all hankering Kool-Aid for some reason. Woke up in labor.
- Had a recurring dream that we couldn't name the baby because the doctor couldn't tell if it was a boy or a girl. Crazy!
- I wanted to see my baby so they took her out of my belly but left the cord connected & put her back in when I was done.
- I had one constantly where I birthed a plastic cupie doll who was like Rambo. The baby would kill us sometimes or start fires up and down the hallway.
- I dreamed my husband cheated on me with ... his laptop.
- I used to dream about no longer being pregnant and not understanding why. I'd always wake up and reach for my tummy.
- In my dream I was pregnant, and a friend somehow convinced me to smoke weed. I kept protesting, but eventually, I said, "I guess it’ll be fine." Then, after I "smoked" and was high, I started FREAKING OUT. "Oh my god, what did I do?!" I kept thinking. "This was a terrible, terrible idea!" I was SO relieved when I woke up and realized it didn’t happen.
- Yes, tons about losing the baby, meaning, "Where did I put it? I know it's here somewhere" ... or "Oh shit, that's right, I have a baby, now where did I put it?" And a very vivid one where I gave birth and it was my cat. I even nursed her.
WAIT -- I saved the best for last. Warning: Do not read any further if you're sipping any sort of beverage.
16. I had this dream early on in my pregnancy and it traumatized the shit out of me. I was somewhere with my mom. And I had my head on her lap, which was totally normal because I still loved doing that even at my age. It was a cool, caring dream because I was close to her.
Yeah um, so then I turn over, and she has a penis. And in my dream I don't think, "Holy shit what the fu&% is going on my mom's vagina is gone!!!" Oh no! I proceed to put it in my MOUTH!!!!! Let me repeat that again in case you didn't read the line the first time: I put my mom's penis in my mouth!!!!!!! How's that for a weird dream? The thing is that the dream wasn't like about sex. It was about me caring for her, which is freaky on a good day.
Can you top that? What was your weirdest pregnancy dream?
