strange dreams during pregnancy

As you all know, I was Miss Anxious Pregnant Lady --
always worried.

But I had a weird pregnancy dream not long after I found out I was having a girl that actually made me feel a whole lot better.

I dreamed my big belly was transparent and I could see through it. And so could everyone else....

It was strange, yes, but in looking in, I could see my baby. She was pretty in there, bouncing all around with blond hair and blue eyes. And she was healthy. And fine.

And I woke up feeling oddly reassured.

dixieQT posted in Answers about strange dreams while pregnant -- she was having a lot of them and wondered what was up, and why.

Those wacky pregnancy hormones are probably in part to blame. But there are other reasons, too.

-- You've got a lot on your mind right now -- Dreams are a way for your subconscious to work through all of the big changes coming in your life.

-- They're an outlet for all of the extreme emotions you're experiencing at the moment.

-- Another reason you feel like you're dreaming more and more vividly is that you're waking up more during the night -- to run to the bathroom or to try and get comfy -- so you're more likely to remember the dreams.

Have you been having wacky pregnancy dreams? What was the weirdest?

    The weirdest dream I had when I was pregnant was that I gave birth to a big, beautiful, glittery green fish LOL  Fortunately, I had a big, beautiful not-so-glittery flesh-toned  human boy :-D

    When I was pregnant I was always having crazy dreams! I had one that I had twins and they turned into shrimp and got lost in a basket full of other shrimp and I was freaking out trying to figure out which ones was my babies. My husband just shook his head and told me I was weird when It old him about the dream ;-D.

    Crazy can be a state of mind mama.  Crazy can me so many things.  But pregnancy is a personal choice,  just like abortions.  I know people who have had doctors run from them cuz they wanted like 7 or 8 abortions, what is the difference between having 7or 8 kids?  IDK priorities are important people.

    I have been having vivid dreams throughout my whole pregnancy. Some scary, some just plain weird.

    Lately they've been taking place at my parents house, or in my old neighborhood.

    Just a few nights ago i dreamt that i gave birth to my baby at home in my bed w/no one's help, and i went to go run errands. When i came back i had 4babies waiting for me w/my mom instead of the 1. They multiplied, lol.

    Yes, weird dreams are TOTALLY normal during pregnancy - especially sexual ones.

    I had one that I was holding a little girl who felt like mine, but "wasn't."  (Maybe adopted?)  She was maybe 7 months old or so, and a spider crawled across the desk I was holding her on, and she reached out, grabbed it, and ate it.

    I had another dream where it was like I could feel every detail of the baby through my skin on my stomach - like the way you can feel the bones in the back of your hand.
