Strange Dreams During Pregnancy

strange pregnancy dreamsI've always had strange dreams, but they seem to be getting stranger now that I am pregnant.

The other night I had an odd one -- I was at my parents house in the middle of the night we all woke up because a car was doing donuts outside. The phone rang and it was the kid who was driving that car's mom. She kept asking me for Steve. I was afraid the car was going to drive into the house. Weird. 

I've also been having some sexual dreams.

In these sex dreams, I have no idea what I was doing but I wake up really turned on like something super sexy was happening. I know we can sometimes feel more sexual during our second trimester, but in our sleep? Kinky. I like it. So does my husband.

CafeMom klg25 is also having very vivid dreams and asked other mamas-to-be about it in the Pregnancy group.

eeyoremom84 had some incredible sounding dreams. She had one where a gorilla ate her cat and another where one of the doctors from Grey's Anatomy delivered one of her babies and then she walked down the hall to go to the bathroom and delivered another in the toilet.

Have you had strange pregnancy dreams? Share!

    Yeah, I always had crazy dream during pregnancy... and this pregnancy is no different! I've been having dreams that I'm in the circus as a lion tamer, dreams that I'm giving birth in a grocery store, and of course the crazy sex dreams too.

    I had a scary dream once. I dreamt that the umbilical cord from me to the baby was a thin piece of string going from my nose to DS and if I stood up all the way it would snap and he would die. So I spent my whole dream hunched over walking around and not knowing how far was too far to stand up.

    I had a dream in which during a field trip with everyone from my elementary school, even those i have not seen in 10+ years, we ended up at a hotel, adn there was a zombie invasion. while held up in one of th rooms we get a call that on the 13th floor it was zombie proof because it was number 13 and most hotels dont have them, we just had to make it up there. on the way we had to go through a swimming pool several miles long, but when we got in we turned into mermaids and were chased by a giant circle that fed on mermaids. tried to make sense of the dream, gave up when all the conclusions came to insanity,

    I recently had a dream where DH and I were chasing cats in the parking lot outside our apartment building. It was almost like we were herding them. I am not much of a cat person so i was not having fun.

    I dreamed that I was at home and I felt all this fluid coming from me. Supposedly my water broke. I suddenly started pushing, and my husband was there with me freaking out. Then I realized that I could go longer without having the baby. Frantically I tried to get all my stuff  together for the hospital. My husband was driving me in the car, but we wound up far from home in the middle of nowhere lost! I had this dream I'm sure, because I'm worried the baby will come to soon and I won't make it to the hospital.
