blush blush blush

They are so vivid! Anyone else having them and dare to say who is in them? I can safely say I am not going to look at Andy from CBeebies in the same way again!

Good grief the mind boggles grin

At the moment only had the one, that I didn't fit car seat properly and baby was rolling around on the floor and I didn't notice!

Mine sounds more fun Bejeena. I've also had dreams about random blokes finding me attractive too. What does it mean? Thing is I've gone totally off sex, as asleep by 8pm every night, am sure it's my subconscious. Poor DH! grin

sheeplikessleep Mon 11-Feb-13 11:42:50

Bejeena - maybe you need to go to bed earlier, it's working for me wink

lorisparkle Mon 11-Feb-13 11:43:45

my most unusual was that I had kittens - literally not metaphorically! the wierdest part of the dream was that no one other than me thought this was odd.

trying not to think about what your dream may have contained OP.

Oh gawd, maybe I'm the only one who is having rude dreams blush.

Seriously every time DS puts on Mike The Knight recording before bed and Andy is there, I am sure I blush.

I have vivid dreams anyway, so they're positively psychadelic when I'm pregnant, it's awesome.

Last night I dreamt that my baby was birthed without me being present in the room. I'd popped out to the toilet or something, and when I came back the baby had been born and they were all sort of looking at it in a box, and then it got passed around all my old schoolfriends some of whom were smoking. I didn't want to make a scene or upset anyone by saying anything, and I was desperately trying to text my husband whilst trying to look interested in my own baby (in case anyone judged me for texting when I should've been caring for a baby).

It was a sort of sci-fi kitchen sink drama.

I had one where my hubby gave birth instead of me. And we celebrated by eating bananas that were thin like straws. The mind boggles haha. grin

sheep that made me laugh so much!!
I've also been having vivid dreams. I love an American show called pretty little liars and I dreamt how the whole things ends and what the big secret is. it was so realistic I'm convinced I've got it right!! smile

I am loving hearing about everyones very odd dreams. It's definitely one of the best bits against the restless legs, morning sickness and extreme exhaustion. They really feel so real don't they, often pre-pregnancy I'd remember parts of a dream, but these do actually feel like you're living it.

I'm still a bit ashamed that I am alone in my sex dreams! blush

Jojobump1986 Mon 11-Feb-13 12:47:45

You're not alone! blush I've had one dream that I couldn't bring myself to tell DH about. It involved an acquaintance who'd come over to my grandmother's house to work on a project with me & my mum. He ended up crashing in a double bed with me & mum slept on a single bed nearby. I woke up in the middle of the night to find him kissing me. I didn't particularly object but was kind of surprised because in the dream I'd assumed he was gay. I have absolutely no idea about his sexual orientation IRL & no interest in him whatsoever! My mum woke up & threw him out of the house!
I've recently discovered that I've been put in a group with him so will have to work with him on a monthly basis. I don't live anywhere near my grandmother though so no fear of him ending up staying there! I do still feel a little awkward around him though! blush

funkky Mon 11-Feb-13 12:52:12

OMG! me too, i never remember my dreams but since getting pregnant i do.
I had one last night where I was making out with another girl! Am straight and have kind of gone off sex since getting pg. . Weird

sheeplikessleep Mon 11-Feb-13 13:00:09

Lol jojo and funkky ... now I feel a bit less crazy! (Very please CBeebies Andy is just a tv person and not in real life, I don't envy you having to work with your 'acquaintance' every month! Hopefully time will erode the memory of the dream)

EwokStorageUnit Mon 11-Feb-13 13:24:50

grinthe above really made me grin.

If all fails ladies, how about getting into erotic fiction - could be the next 50 shades somewhere in this lot!!

My dreams pre-pregnancy were always so incredibly vivid and weird that since becoming pregnant they've got far more boring! I had a dream that I put my conditioner on before my shampoo, tutted and started from the beginning again. I had a dream where my sister tweeted me... I also dreamed that orange juice was made illegal and I found a way to brew my own in an abandoned shed...now that one was probably as exciting as it's got!

Your dreams sound much more fun than mine!!!

SneezySnatcher Mon 11-Feb-13 20:33:21

I have really vivid sex dreams too. In fact, I've woken up having an orgasm many times. They are always about DH though.

Happened last pregnancy too - in fact this time around it was the symptom that made me test! blush

ReikiMummy Mon 11-Feb-13 20:45:41

Yup, very real, very vivid...
Sexy dreams - yes.....

The most real one was late last week, dreamt I was giving birth (without going into details on the whole labour bit), even dreamt I then did the first 2 breastfeeds... and then woke in a complete panic that it wasn't time for the LO to be here yet... (only @ 18wks!!)

elsabel Mon 11-Feb-13 22:08:59

Me too, very vivid and weird...my mum stealing my baby (i have a very good relationship with my mum so cant figure where that came from) , being on the run from the police, and tsunamis everywhere confused

Another one who has naughty dreams when pregnant (had with each, this is my 3rd dc). I had an odd very vivid dream last night but the strangest has to be when I VERY PREM gave birth to dc3, whilst standing in my bedroom - baby just sort of flew out of me as I walked and was still in his waters - this bag with a baby in flew across the floor and landed slightly under the bed on dh's side. Very odd and was so worried about prem labour for a while (this dream was a while ago, I'm now 22 weeks and definitely don't fancy going into labour for a long time yet!)

Am I the only one with vivid freaky nightmares? Like the stuff in horror films you watch out of one eye whilst holding a cushion to your face??
sigh xx

I have had LOADS of sex dreams this pregnancy - annoyingly all about DH! Really filthy ones too, which is odd cos I've been quite poorly for the last 3 months so we haven't had sex for ages.

I have also started having shit, I haven't fed the baby dreams. I had loads of these when I was pregnant with DC1 - usually they involved realising that I'd had a baby two days earlier and had forgotten to feed it. I'd rush to the baby and find it limp and pale and would desperately breastfeed it and then it would be ok! Am now 32+3 with DC2 and have started having these dreams again, despite the fact that I know from experience that there is no way on earth this would ever happen! I hate them though, I always wake up really panicky and disorientated.

I had lots of weird vivid dreams when pregnant with DC1 - the most memorable being that we'd had a little girl but she'd got really really hairy legs like DH. Was slightly freaked out by that one.

Jojobump1986 Tue 12-Feb-13 08:25:41

Nope. The weeping angels from Dr Who visited me a few weeks ago. I was supposed to be protecting a child who could sense when a person was going to turn into one of them. He'd identified 2 people in a hospital room & so was watching them so they couldn't turn but then was asked to leave the room while a nurse checked them over. I found him waiting outside &... the light was off. The little boy completely freaked out when I went to reach inside for the light switch because he could sense that the people had turned & were waiting by the light switch to attack! We ran outside & there were angels all over the road. I woke up just after we got in the car & were surrounded. Try getting back to sleep after that! I spent the rest of that night with the light on watching the doorway & expecting a stone hand to appear at any moment. I've not slept without a light on since! <Shudder>

Also having freaky vivid dreams. Had one the other night that I had the baby but it was really creepy as it was already talking and seemed to be some kind of evil mastermind.

Mawgatron Tue 12-Feb-13 21:53:45

I had an erotic dream about michel roux jr last night. Was quite a pleasant experience tbh!
