Over the past 22 weeks I have had some crazy dreams. Apparently this is all normal because pregnant women have to pee in the middle of the night often and thus they wake up during the part of sleep where there are dreams (and thus they remember them more often). Or something like that. I am no exception…I do pee a lot. And I do remember some of my absolutely INSANE dreams. Below are a few of the crazy dreams I’ve experienced…
It all started innocent enough…me and baby boy were snuggling. The next thing you know, I’m being told that he has to get ready to go vote in some kind of election. “Vote?! He’s a baby! He can’t vote,” I tell them. “But he must,” they say. “He’s a BABY! He’s just going to vote the way I want him to.” No one seems bothered by this…. The next thing I know the baby is dressed in some kind of furry outfit — in my dream I’m pretty sure we were living on some Star Wars planet where this kind of furry-ness is normal.
A couple of nights later…I was in a shopping mall in Sydney, Australia (I could see the Opera House). The mall was HUGE, like 6-9 levels all built underground. The next thing you know there’s a terrorist attack and the mall starts to rumble to life because it’s actually a SPACESHIP built for just these kind of issues. If there’s an attack, the mall flies into space to protect the shoppers. We could have lived in space forever, apparently. I don’t know if we ever made it into space, but I do know the Australians were ready for it.
Back in high school?! Or maybe college? Either way it’s school. I’m pretty sure this is one that I’ve had multiple times because there were things happening in the dream that made reference to things “in the past”. Like missing a lot of my math class. In the most recent school dream I was researching a term paper and got distracted. Thus causing myself to be half an hour late for math. And I didn’t even have my math book.
The most confusing dream? There’s a special book room/store that transports you into a different dimension. I had to be back by midnight or else it would mess with my actual timeline. I kept looking for a copy of The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss, but could only find various volumes of the graphic version of the novel (which doesn’t exist, right?). It felt like a and my boss was there and my niece had to change into her swimsuit. It was so weird, but this book dimension room was huge.
The dreams that are the scariest are those about Jesse leaving me. I wake up terrified he’s really gone every time I have these dreams of abandonment. In one he left me for 3 months. I mean, they’re always so real. Again, apparently these types of dreams are common during pregnancy because…well…it’s a scary time with lots of changes.
Then there are those dreams that shouldn’t be discussed publicly…hormones. You can’t control ‘em.
Did any of your pregnancy dreams stick with you?
