  • Yes, very common. I always have really horrible nightmares when pregnant.

  • Yeah! I thought I was the only one.
    At like 5 weeks pregnant I started having really vivid and horrible dreams.

    They got better at the middle of the second trimester though.

    I can still remember some of those dreams as if they REALLY happened!

  • I had vivid dreams before I was pregnant but now they are SUPER intense! I've had zombie nightmares where I can't fall back asleep until I have a zombie evacuation plan all planned out in my head. Sounds crazy but I think it's the mommy side kicking in. I also had one nightmare where Hannibal Lecter had killed all my family and friends, so I had to kill him before he got to me and my husband...well after stabbing him 4 or 5 times and talking to him while he was dying, I went on with my dream knowing he wasnt gone....then low and behold the rest of my dream he kept coming back. Anywho, when I woke up from that dream needing to pee....I was too terrified to get out of bed. I made my husband get up and walk me to the bathroom....true story.
