Why am I having all these crazy dreams? What do they mean? Is it a sign that something is wrong with my baby?

The Bump Expert

Dreams reflect your mental state, and let’s face it -- you’re a bit of a basket case right now. The excitement, apprehension and stresses of pregnancy don’t disappear during slumber. Hormonal changes -- specifically, progesterone and estrogen surges -- also contribute to wacky dreams. And, don’t forget about your constant nighttime awakenings. Dreams come during deep REM sleep, and when you wake during this stage it’s much easier to remember those vivid visions. 

So why are you suddenly dreaming about rainforests and oceans…and talking animals…and sex (not just with your spouse)… and tall buildings? These common themes represent emotions and anxiety about your changing body, that person growing inside you, and your evolving relationship with your mate.

Though odd dreams can be disturbing, they’re also helpful. Look at it as your subconscious’s chance to work through anxieties and other heavy emotions. And finally, don’t put too much stock in any nighttime “premonitions.” You’re a nervous mommy, not a prophet.

Q&A: Weird pregnancy dreams?

At least 4 days out of the week my boyfriend wakes me because I am whimpering, or pouting (almost on the verge of tears). I recall all of the dreams i have had and i would consider them all nightmares. They all have to do with family or my boyfriend. I am 18 weeks pregnant and its been happening since about 11 weeks, anyone else experiencing this? is it due to stress?? thanks.

I've been having crazy dreams off and on for the last few weeks, definitely in the nightmare category. Fortunately, I don't make enough noise to wake DH, because they are too weird to discuss. I'm currently 15 weeks along.

I'm 14 weeks right now and for the past couple weeks I've been having crazy dreams too. Lot's of sex ones, so I'll wake up horny as hell (not that my hubby minds lol). I even had one last night that I had my baby but I couldn't remember anything about the birth and that freaked me out! Crazy!

Q&A: Weird pregnancy dreams?

at first i dreamed of having my baby with me. then, i had a dream that the baby had 3 eyes because i took to much dha. im18 weeks, and diabetic, my sugars went crazy this week, and so did i. i was freaking out that i was killing my child, all day long i worried myself sick, when i went to bed that night, i had dreams of misscarriage. and i woke up with cramps. i dont believe im miscarrying, it doesnt feel like the last time. but i have an ultrasound the day after tomorrow, so im praying my dreams are just because of stress. im sure they are, so i dont think u should worry.

I've been having crazy dreams for the past 7 weeks (I'm 14 wks now). I've even had a few "psychic" dreams about people I've never met that came true within 2 days of my dreams. I gotta stop reading the national news.

Q&A: Weird pregnancy dreams?

I am 21 weeks pregnant and have been having crazy dreams for a few months now. Most of them have nothing to do with my baby- like the one last night where the scary girl from the "ring" movie was trying to rip my eyes out.... not sure what that says about my subconcious :) I try not to give it too much thought and concentrate on getting some good sleep!

Q&A: Weird pregnancy dreams?

My crazy dreams and nightmares started right when I found out I was PG and haven't stopped yet (I'm 12 weeks.) At first I got really upset by them and was crying at night because I didn't want to go to sleep and have nightmares (DH was very sweet and supportive.) Now I just try not to think about them too much when I wake up and find that by the time I shower and have breakfast I forget all about them. I dream a lot about people from my past (like friends from high school I haven't spoken to in 15 years) and it's SO bizarre. I know it's hormonal but it's driving me a bit crazy!

Q&A: Weird pregnancy dreams?

I've had crazy dreams too, to the point where I don't want to go to sleep either. Last week I ended up screaming for my husband out loud and woke us up right quick! It took a while for both of us to get our heart rates back to normal and get to bed again. I wish they would stop!

Q&A: Weird pregnancy dreams?

no weird dreams this time around yet Im 14 weeks. However with my daughter right after we found out she was a girl I had all kinds of weird dreams. The weirdest being I gave birth they layed her on my chest and she had a perfect little girl body but Conan O'Briens head VERY freaky

Q&A: Weird pregnancy dreams?

My crazy dreams began around 12 weeks and I am 22 weeks and still are having them! It's odd because i never use to recall my dreams and now its one my husbands and mine favorite breakfast convos of what craziness i dreamed of. He is even begining to have crazy dreams too! I think it's more mental state of anxiety of all the changes going on in our lives.

Q&A: Weird pregnancy dreams?

I'm 18 weeks and have been having weird or just very vivid dreams for the last 8 weeks, at least. The past few weeks I've had bad nightmares; and I mean the horrible kind that makes you wake up crying. I still remember them! To try to help, I'm drinking chamomile tea or a (physician-approved) small glass of wine at bedtime, and listening to my hypnobirthing relaxation CD. Can anyone suggest other things to help?

Q&A: Weird pregnancy dreams?

I am 14 weeks and had a dream I was breastfeeding....unfortunately it wasn't the baby but my miniature dacshund that I was feeding....soooo weird! I also keep having terrible dreams that I decide to have 1 glass of wine and then the next thing I know I"m wasted and worried about what I've done...and that dream unfortunately keeps repeating even though I stopped drinking right when I started trying to get pregnant. I guess it's just the hormones!

Q&A: Weird pregnancy dreams?

I have been having very vivid dreams almost every night during the past few weeks and I rarely dream! As far as I can tell, my baby is still fine. Sometimes I interpret the dreams and find some meaning, but sometimes, it's just a dream.

Q&A: Weird pregnancy dreams?

@ Rexandbrooke i had a dream last week that i couldnt remember the birth, i also forgot to bring the carseat and my baby was named jacob ( i have too many friends with kids named this) it was a scary dream because i want a natural birth and i couldnt remember any of it. Last night i dreamed that my mother was going to kill herself( assisted suicidally) i hate these dreams they scare me very much.

Q&A: Weird pregnancy dreams?

I'm 24 weeks and have been having horrible nightmares about breastfeeding. Most of them are me trying to figure it out on my own because in the dreams my baby boy was born premature so no one had time to show me what to do! The worst one was that my left breast was leaking out brownish-orange watery milk, like a rusty faucet that hadn't been used in a while - so gross! Thankfully I know these dreams are normal and I'm taking a breastfeeding class soon.

Oh my, I feel so bad for all of you having nightmares! I've been having crazy dreams as well but they're funny, not scary! I've also been talking in my sleep a lot! I did have one dream that scared me, but other than that they've been wierd but hysterical! I hope all you mamas get some peaceful sleep!

Q&A: Weird pregnancy dreams?

I hear this is extremely common in pregnant women. I went from having vague dreams that i rarely remembered to having super-vivid dreams that I woke up remembering every part of, including a zombie apocalypse one in week 10 (now in week 20). It doesn't really get better as far as I can tell, though mine are varied and not always scary, just hyper-realistic.

Q&A: Weird pregnancy dreams?

I'm so hapy to hear that this is normal and more common than I ever expected it to be, Im almost 3months pregnant and the dreams seem to be getting worst, and yes they always seem to frigthten me, I had a dream once that my 7yr old daughters father was in prison and was released for two months to spend time with us, this dream was so vivid, I remember every detail to the tee, and he has been dead now for 6 yrs! sheesh! Sometimes I dred bed time! Is there a cure for this??????

Q&A: Weird pregnancy dreams?

Totally and completely normal. I am 26 weeks along and have been having "pregnancy dreams" since about 6 or 7 weeks. Sometimes it will be about the birth (I am a high risk delivery so I constantly think about it) - but in my dreams it always goes without a hitch. Sometimes it will be about my baby's health. A lot of the time (before we found out the sex), I dreamt we were having a boy. My husband and I were hoping for a girl, but sure enough we are having a boy! One thing they all had in common is they were very vivid and very realistic. Your body chemistry is changing and your brain in compensating in good ways and bad. Good luck! In the end you will have a perfect little person who is half you and that's all that matters. Just gotta suffer through the yucky stuff to get there.

I have the recurring dream that my bf misses the birth. He has to be in CO for school the whole month before my due date. In the dream, however, he misses the birth and I'm home alone with the baby. Someone breaks into the house and tries to kidnap the baby. I end up killing them with a rock hammer (bf is a Geology major, so we have quite a few). One of the weirdest and most vivid dreams I've ever had.

Q&A: Weird pregnancy dreams?

I want to respond to Brizzl, I had a bizzare dream and my boyfriend woke me up because he said I was breathing hard and nearly crying. So when he woke me up. I was tearing up and crying so so bad. when I realized I was home and wasn't in the dream anymore that's when I realized it was a dream, and he still was asking me. I was so scared and emotional took me a while to stop crying. I 1 day away from my 14 weeks. So technically I am 14 weeks and I had atleast 2-3 baby dreams. but this one from early was really touching and heart felt, all I knew was that I wanted my baby, but if anyone wants to know what exactly my dream was about I will be more than glad to share just in case anyone shares the same. Hope I could help bizzl because I experienced it too.

Q&A: Weird pregnancy dreams?

I am about to be 19 wks tomorrow and have had 2 pregnancy dreams. The first one was when I was worried I was going through a miscarriage because I had cramping, I was losing weight, and I was not feeling the baby. So in my dream I woke up in the middle of the night and felt my stomach and it was flat and had saggy skin. I continued to the restroom and pulled down my pants and there was blood everywhere...Not a good dream. My second dream was a bit funny. With all the anticipation of finding out the gender and with the fact that I really want a boy and few people say it’s a girl this dream was interesting. So in the dream I was at a doctor’s office to find out the gender and the doctors pulled the baby out (it was all nice and clean and no umbilical cord) and after looking at it for a bit they said it’s a girl. I looked and said no he's not. I took a closer look and the nub was too big to be a girls but too small to be a boys and the skin on the side was too big to be lips but not well formed into ball sacks. So I then said, he just needs more time to develop. So the doctor folded him up and stuck him right back inside.....My husband had a kick out of that one!

Q&A: Weird pregnancy dreams?

Im a little over 18 weeks along and this is my second pregnancy. With my daughter who is almost 3, I always had dreams that she was going to be a girl, nothing crazy. This time around I have crazy weird dreams. I dream its a boy. That I can see him through my skin. That hes growing in a fish tank and not my belly. In one of my dreams i was having a conversation with a group of moms, I dont know what they were all talking about, the only word I heard was "stillborn". I freaked out and woke up. Been paranoid ever since :(

I keep having dreams about my MIL kidnapping my baby while im breastfeeding in the hospital. Its terrible but I think it is very likely to happen in reality. That's not the hormones talking I promise.
