Baby Dreams are Crushing my Soul

Lately I have been having baby dreams that are messing with my mind. In my dreams I am either pregnant and/or have a baby. Of course, dreams are weird so sometimes the baby takes the shape of a caterpillar or something else random, but I always know it’s my baby. I am usually blissfully happy with my strange baby and then it’s ripped from my arms at some point.

Baby Dreams are Crushing my Soul

I know I am not the only person who has baby dreams. But, I am the person who was sure she didn’t want kids. Who has been confident in living a DINK lifestyle and sticking with that decision. I am the person who had the long conversation with her husband before finally deciding to get help in the form of medicine for her struggling brain and mental health. My mind is seriously betraying me with these dreams.

We all know how powerful dreams can be. They can shake your soul to the core for a bit. I wake up from them feeling hollow, empty and depressed. What kind of crap is that, brain?

This year I will be 36, so I guess this is some sort of biological alarm clock going off to scare me into reproducing. I can take a few of these dreams, but they have been reoccurring now for about a month. Enough already.

The easy thing to do here would be to just let nature take its course. We are married, stable, and not in the worst position if we did get pregnant. Honestly, I am not even sure that I could get pregnant if I wanted to. However, with the meds that I am on, I cannot let that happen. Going off of them wouldn’t be wise either.

And…now I am rambling. I am going to go hug my dogs.

Who else has haunting baby dreams?

I can't say I've had baby dreams, but I don't have kids & I am ok with that. (I probably over-compensate by spoiling my niece & nephews, but what the heck...) I'm no dream analyzer, but they do say dreams are often not as obvious as they seem. It could be that you are trying to 'give birth' to another stage of your life & worried some one will take that away, lol! Geeze, dreams can play with your mind!

Ever since I lost my first baby I've felt my biological clock tickin' away but the thing is my mind tells me No-No-No absolutely not and my body tells me Yes-Yes-Yes absolutely do it so I have mixed emotions about motherhood. Which definitely comes out in the dreams I remember at times!

I guess only time will tell what will happen!

Dreams can suck sometimes. I am 40, have no children, but am engaged. We have no plans to have children. I do, however, have nightmares about my cat being taken from me. Often. They may start out as me having to kill a coyote, then bear, then lion, even up to a dragon to save my baby. I wake up in a panic. Or I go from door to door to find other cats, but not my Nelson. When I wake up, he is always there staring at me and waiting for breakfast. Sigh.

Ugh, yes. Those are horrible! I have dreams like that about my dog. Sometimes he even morphs into my baby in my dreams. Then I have to fight off threats or find him. Definitely a relief when they are sitting right there when you awake. ;)
