Maybe Baby? Dream On.

Last night I dreamed that I was pregnant.


Then today, my sister Rachael said to me “last night I dreamed you were pregnant!”

  1. Oh my gosh, like, it’s a SIGN! I so totally believe in signs, I think it’s your spirit picking up mystical harmonics from your body saying that you need to procreate. It’s just so important to listen when the universe sends you a message, and I would STRONGLY suggest that you get your horoscope done, immediately, so you know the best time to try to conceive — oh, and you can use the ancient Chinese birth calendar to determine the sex of your baby! It was 100% accurate for me, and I completely believe in it.

    Alternatively, it could have been the result of a bad chicken quesadilla and too much tequila, take your pick.

  2. I think it was because we were talking about a mutual friend who I found on facebook, and who has recently had a baby. I guess my sister and I have very literal dreams.

  3. I have narcolepsy, which probably increases my REM sleep. Also, I wake up 5-10 times over the course of the night, usually while dreaming. So, I remember my dreams a lot as well. Usually at least 2-3 per night.

    Lately I've been having some weird ones.

    The other night I had a dream I was hired to be a voice actor in the Hanna Montana Animated series, and I was making a special appearance at a record store with Miley Cyrus and one of the other actors. I remember being really excited because I was sure it would be a sweet job and the screaming teenagers would just ignore me.

    The same night I dreamed I was filming a boxing documentary with Michael J. Fox.

    I could probably run an entire blog just describing my dreams. Maybe I should…

  4. My dreams are rarely remembered and even more rarely coherent. Not sure exactly what that says about me…

  5. Rav, you can have some of mine. I remember my dreams not just every night, but every time I sleep! A short cat nap on a Sunday afternoon? Dream! A nice lie-in on a Saturday? Dream! A regular night’s sleep? Sometimes woken up by my dreams! And then another one in the morning.

    I have a sleep disorder I think. I should probably get it checked out. It’s certainly true that sleep doesn’t refresh me very well, and also that I struggle to have a short nap. I have to get my hubby to wake me up, otherwise I’d just sleep for six hours straight.

  6. I'm always amazed at people's dreams… Mine are never coherent like that. They're always so surreal and steam-of-conciousness that they're virtually impossible to describe.

  7. Well, the above mentioned dreams weren't entirely that coherent. I left out certain parts, like having to jury-rig an overhead projector out of twine and a flashlight for no particular reason. I tend to "clean up" my dreams a bit before explaining them to people.

  8. I think the MOST coherent dream I've had lately was the one where I was knife-fighting this cop (for no adequately explained reason) and then this whale jumped in, and it's a good thing the cop was terrified of whales, because I'm pretty sure I couldn't take the both of them. By the way, whales don't have to be good fighters – they're just friggin' huge.

  9. Last night I dreamed that I was pregnant.

    I was going to say, "That's nothing. Last night I dreamed I was the father." But I wouldn't want to turn your dream into a nightmare . . . for either of us.

  10. I’d much rather dream I’m pregnant than the dreams I normally have. Seriously!

    Last week, I dreamed I was in a house with someone who told me to look out the window through the blinds. I did, and saw ambling toward the house no less than a dozen KILLER ZOMBIES. It was scary. If anyone else here dreamed about zombies last week, please let me know so we can tell whether or not there will be an apocalypse, and then also whether or not Teek is preggers.

  11. Dread, no offense but imagined your post like this:

    I have narcolepsy, which probably increases myhnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn…

    Probably the second most frequent reoccurring motif in my dreams is fishing. FWIW.

  12. My dreams (or at least the ones I remember) aren't typically strange, though like Rebecca I've had the occasional zombie dream (including one last year where I quite graphically stabbed and killed the zombified corpse of one of my grad school coursemates…most alarming). But usually, my dreams involve international travel (oddly enough given my handle).

    I also have a tendency to be able to resume my dreams if I'm awakened during them. In fact, I find it very hard NOT to let this happen…but there are consequences. Each time I wake up and re-enter the dream, it becomes slightly stranger.

    My favorite example of this involved one fairly straight-forward travel dream wherein I BELIEVE I was on the west coast riding in the back of a pickup or van of some sort. When I reentered the dream, I was in roughly the same place, except I was pouring water over a dolphin who I was then apparently transporting with some urgency. I wish I knew whether it survived…poor dear.

  13. Rebecca, if you keep talking about the nurse thing, you’re going to insert it into my dreams, and I won’t be held responsible for the consequences. :P

  14. “Ooh, I hope I was a naughty nurse!”

    Yes! You fiddled with accounts payable, slipped laxative into the interns’ coffee machine, snuck vodka into Old Mrs. Tidwell’s enema, and performed psychic surgery on some poor sod who came in complaining of inter-abdominal pain!
