am i going to be a bad mom?

Last night i had a dream about my unborn baby. I had a dream that someone handed him to me but he was like really bent over like he had something wrong with him. I kept trying to striaghten him out by laying him flat and pushing him down by his butt. and as i was doing it he looked upset like he didn't want me to be his mom or something.
I feel horrible that i had a dream about something being wrong with my son. have you ever had any dreams about something being wrong with your baby? If so please explain...

idk if i had this dream because im so scared of giving birth and something going wrong...what do you think?

  • I have never had those kinds of dreams but my dd has. She was told its really normal to have them because we hold anxiety in our minds about how we will be as mothers, and what not. Dreams are usually our unconscious mind bring forward thoughts we dont want to think about in our waking lives. So in the back of your mind you are worried if you baby will be ok and if you will be a good mom. I think thats pretty normal.

  • I had crazy dreams when I was pregnant... I had a dream that my b/f was holding our baby and he went to hand her to me and instead dropped her on purpose... no one has dropped her yet or anything close to it like fall off the couch or anything and shes 6 1/2 months old. It's normal to dream and worry :)

  • I think it is because you don't want anything to go wrong. I have similar weird dreams.
