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