  • yeah that is a common one for me lol. I was only 6,8 so were the rest of my siblings. My hubby on the other hand was the smallest of his family and he was 9,10...

  • I had nightmares AFTER giving birth because it was traumatic to me, but not before that I remember. I'm not sure what to tell you about stopping them. I'd say that it's just your hormones that are causing you to have weird dreams like that. I had weird dreams about food chasing me while I was pregnant lol.

  • I dreamed that I woke up in a sterile room holding a baby with no recollection of the labor and birth and my hubby telling me I did great. I was so sad that I'd missed out on the experience. I would wake up crying from that one. Then I ended up with an emergency c-section, and that flashed through my head as I was being wheeled into the OR.
