Does anyone else have awful nightmares while pregnant?

EVERY time I have been pregnant, I have had terrible dreams for the duration of my pregnancies. Every single night. Within a week of giving birth, it stops.

Does anyone else go through this? Is it pretty much the same?

  • With my first DS I didn't usually have nightmares, but my dreams were very vivid. With second DS I had a ALOT of nightmares. I had one recurring nightmare that I would have at least once a week. I would have the baby right there in my house. He was very very small and my mom would take the baby to the kitchen and get a knife to cut the umbilical chord, but would accidentally cut off the baby's head instead. It was the most terrible thing and I would wake up and cry uncontrollably for about an hour each time.

  • that's awful missalissa...a lot of mine are about something terrible happening to one of my children, the new baby, or someone else's baby/child.

  • with my first 2 (girls) I didn't have any symptoms or any kind of weird dreams. This time I have had all the pregnancy symptoms and the weird dreamsw so I thought for sure it was a boy, but it is another girl. Anyway I keep having dreams about my dh cheating on me which I know he wouldn't do that, but I keep having them along with sex dreams with my dh if that makes sense first the cheating then the sex dreams lol. Then I have been having dreams that my house is hunted and me getting shot the last one was about some guy at my door and when I opened it he stabbed me in the belly with a knife. I been having some weird and scary dream can't wait until they stop I actually think they are real until I wake up from them

  • It is so scary! They do feel so real why you are having them! I use to have similiar dreams 5409. I would dream that I caught my DH cheating on me (actually right in the act!) then we would be having sex all of a sudden. Sometimes I would dream that we were fooling around then he would look up at me and all of a sudden it would be someone else. A friend or and ex or even sometimes some random woman! Pregnant dreams are so weird! Everytime I tell my DH about one of my dreams he just shakes his head with a dropped jaw looking at me like I just told him the sky is purple or something! lol

  • With my first, I used to have a dream almost nightly, that I gave birth to 3 very little babies that I kept in my pocket. They were not preemie or anything, just the size of doll house babies. It was really weird.
