So im 21weeks pregnant now and im alrdy too freaked out about it! Im having this really bad nightmares for about 2 months now! The nightmares have to do with me giving birth but i wont get into any more detail. The worst part is that i dont wake up from these nightmares.. my mom says she hears me screaming and rolling around the bed while shes slapping me and i still dont wake up.. this leads to me not getting any sleep or very little.. i am wondering if this is going to harm my baby..;/ would be very nice if you could give me some tips or just share experiences/knowledge on the subject!

So scary! When I get bad dreams I wake up right away, I couldn't imagine the dream continuing! Can you talk to your OB about it?

Maybe try unisom before you go to bed? Also don't eat chocolate or have caffeine at night. Oh and before you go to sleep make a list of at least 10 things you are eternally grateful for, that way you're going to sleep with positive thoughts.

Other than that just take solace in the fact that crazy pregnancy dreams/nightmares are 100% normal. With all of the hormones surging through your body it can cause your dreams to take a crazy turn for the worse.

Obstetrician, baby doctor. The person you see once a month to check on the progress of the baby. If you don't see and OB, do you have a mid-wife?

Yeah ill see my Dr. In about 2weeks... was just wondering if any of the moms here had similar cases and if they did, then how did they solve them!

Nightmares during pregnancy are normal. I too would sometimes not wake up and continue to have the dream over and over but I would be attempting to change the results.

This pregnancy I've been having some very sadistic, disturbing sexual dreams to the point where I am embarrassed that my mind would create such scenarios.
