Bad Dreams....

I'm 37 weeks pergnant with my 2nd pregnancy. I'm starting to feel anxious because I'm ready to have baby here and honestly I'm done being pregnant. I know I still have a few more weeks to go and the longer baby is in there the better. But for about the past week now every time I go to bed I keep having bad dreams about baby. Maybe its just because I'm anxious and worrying how my 4 year old will deal with it after baby is here and worrying about baby being fine. Either way the dreams make it even harder to sleep. Anyone else have bad dreams about a 2nd baby? Any suggestions how to make them better so I can sleep better at night? I'm sure every thing will be ok but I cant stop the dreams.

  • a lot of people have odd dreams during their pregnancies... my first few weeks of being pregnant i was having dreams that my mom was trying to take my LO... that was an interesting conversation !! i wouldn't worry about it to much. you don't want to stress yourself out.

  • actaully last night i had a night terror that jolted me awake bawling, my hubby was worried i was going into preterm how much i was crying and 26 wks. it just happens i guess. with my first pregnancy in my later times i would dream of more than one baby, having a litter of puppies, or pigglets or worse some misshapened alien baby lol. it was off the chart weird,and some of them were a bit scarey

  • Thats my problem they are scarey and kinda make me not want to sleep. They wake me up. They arent just weird dreams, they are bad dreams, scarey ones.
