you are pregnant, you probably notice how vivid and wacky your dreams are. Some
dreams are so realistic and intense that it can make you cry or make you mad. With
pregnancy in the brain, your mind may be on overdrive. Dreaming serves as
an outlet for those thoughts; it is a way to relieve some of the stress and
actually helps you prepare for motherhood and arrival of the baby.
Getting up several times a night may interrupt your sleep, but it actually helps
you remember more of your dreams throughout the night. Most of the time, you
only remember the last dream you had right when you get up in the morning.
However if you are getting up several times a night especially when you are in
the middle of a sleep cycle, then it is more likely that
you will remember more than one dream. So it is no surprising that pregnant
women report more dreams and more vivid dreams.
dreams during pregnancy can reflect your joy, excitement, anticipation, stress,
anxiety and concerns about your impending arrival, as well as your hormonal and physical changes.
As your hormones fluctuate, the fetus grows, and your body changes throughout
the pregnancy, so does the content of your dreams. Interestingly, most pregnant
women's dreams had a pattern of what was dreamt about during the various stages of
pregnancy. Although any dream theme can occur at anytime during your pregnancy,
certain dream themes were found to be much more common at certain trimesters.
