Trimester Pregnancy Dreams
is natural to worry about giving birth and being a good mother, especially if
you are a first time mother. At the moment that you find out you are pregnant,
you are excited and scared at the same time. These emotions can also cause you
to have dreams that showcase these very same emotions.
Giving Birth to
A Grown Child or An Adult
pregnant women report dreams where they gave birth to a talking, walking toddler or
a full grown adult. One
explanation for such a dream is that you are doubting your ability to care for a tiny newborn
baby. This little life is going to be your responsibility. Thus dreaming of giving birth to an older
child or adult seems less intimidating to handle. A second explanation is that
you are envisioning your baby growing up and doing things. You already have
hopes and dreams for her or him. If you are going back to work after the
pregnancy, then this dream may also reflect how time is passing you by and how
you will be missing out on a huge chunk of your baby's life.
of swimming, floating, drowning, being drenched in rain or being surrounded by water is
common for pregnant women and actually occurs throughout the trimesters,
although the forms may change. Your water dream may be in analogous to the
amniotic fluid filling in your womb. It is common to find yourself swimming in a
pool or going down a water slide in
your first-trimester dreams. This may reflect your desires to connect with your
baby, who is suspended in liquid.
common dream theme in the first trimester is seeing a lot of fruit, flowers, and
baby animals in your dreams. These are fertility symbols and represent your pregnant
state. Water-dwelling creatures, like fish are also present in many
pregnant women's dreams.
On A Journey
is like a journey in itself. And so dreams where you are driving or going on a trip or
quite common. Often times, the trip was unplanned or unexpected, something
happens to the luggage, you miss your flight, you get into a car accident, you
get a speeding ticket, or you end up at another
destination. This parallels your apprehension with the pregnancy and not knowing
how things will go along the way. Dreams of going on a journey actually occur
throughout your entire pregnancy journey.
