Moving house whilst pregnant(11 Posts)
I'm currently pregnant and living in a home with my gorgeous man, but I'm petrified to bring my baby up in the house we live in. It's a Victorian style house and I believe it to be haunted. It seems to have got worse since I became pregnant.
Electrical appliances such as the TV and microwave will turn on and off at will. Food will go missing that me or partner haven't eat - particularly seems to happen with baked items, sweets & chocolate. Things like the TV remote, my purse & my mobile phone will go missing and then turn up in absurd places. I tend to hear a lot of strange noises coming from the house too. I've also been experiencing nightmares and night terrors that involve anything from the baby operating heavy machinery to me being possessed and levitating at night whilst I sleep.
My partner thinks I've gone off the bloody walls, but I haven't. He doesn't want us to move and thinks I'm delusional, but I'm not!!
Surely it's not too much to ask to move into a safe environment that is fit for when my baby arrives?!
Not to scare you, but my aunt thought she was being haunted for years and it was only at 28 that she was diagnosed with sczeophrenia (have butchered the spelling sorry). Sometimes it can be late onset. Get yourself checked out by the GP just in case
Pregnancy can cause very odd dreams. But being pregnant doesn't stop you moving.
Okay. I'm not trying to frighten you, but you need to get checked out for schizophrenia. food doesn't just to missing, where would it go? Either your partner is lying about eating it or you don't realise you are and you don't remember it. I have schizophrenia and I have awful memory problems, there's while chunks of day I don't remember. I can do something and not realise I'm doing it.
Same with moving the objects.
I will put everything everywhere and not realise. I'll be adamant I didn't make a cup of tea and be really confused as to why there's a cup of tea in a room, when I did not put it there. I would find 3 pairs of the same patterned sock, when I only bought one pair, I'd look again the next day and only find 2. I was convinced someone was stealing my clothes because I couldn't find them.
But the next bit Is why I said go get checked out,
I began to get night terrors 2 months before being diagnosed. I would have nightmares frequently.
They stopped eventually but recently they came back with a vengeance. I can tell I'm not going to be very well because I'll have night terrors night after night.
Your partner might have more insight than you.
Just go get checked out for everybody's sake!
Also hearing strange noises does your partner hearthese noises??
Its a classic symptom, and it's not.always voices
Thank you for all your responses. I have been going to my doctors on a regular basis for years. As far as I'm aware, all that I suffer from is social anxiety.
My partner has noticed stranger things happening in the house over the years, but he always tries to justify it. It just seems like it's all escalated since I got pregnant.
The strange noises that I here aren't voices in my head as such, they just tend to be noises coming from in the house, and I particularly notice them at night.
Certain areas or spots within the house will go cold at times. I would have closed a door in a room, only to find it open later. The dog seems to pick up on bad energies too - he'll bark at nothing, cry at nothing, sometimes he just starts shaking!!
I either want to move house for peace of mind, or at the very least get a paranormal specialist around the house. I'm not religious, but I'm thinking of going to the local church and asking them to come around and bless the house. I just need this pregnancy to run as smoothly and as stress free as possible.
I would absolutely speak to a doctor before a paranormal specialist due to the experiences above
Think about how many times in life actual moving of objects by paranormal force has been proven. Scientifically recorded and witnessed.
Cold spots, hearing clanging noises - totally normal in Victorian Houses. Bit of 'woo' - also normal. Vivid dreams in pregnancy are common.
But yours goes a step beyond that and if you could mention it to a midwife or doctor that would be the best for you and your baby. Promise yourself you will do that and then also phone your local Catholic Church and ask for their help if that makes you feel better, I'm sure they will bless the house for you but you must take practical steps first.
Even if you have been to the GP regularly, unless you have told them about these particular issues, they would not know to investigate further for something like schizophrenia.
So i am guessing you are eating the food. You are forgetting where you put stuff or put stuff down in weird places.
Eating and forgetfulness happen quite often in pregnancy. As are vivid dreams.
Bad wiring could also be playing a part.
I actually thought this was meant to be a funny thread tbh.
I'll book an appointment, but I have spoken to them about it before, in relation to my anxiety.
Unless my partner has been eating the food or my dog has magically been able to get in and out of the pantry, then I'm not sure what's going on. I'm certainly not eating it! I can only manage one sweet thing and then I'm done for the day.
I do like watching horror films, but I was watching that stuff before I moved into this house and I had never experienced anything like it before.
1. You can move while pregnant, I did.
2. Your house is not haunted. If it makes you feel better, get a priest in. See your GP and tell him about what's been happening and take your DP.
