......I am a bad bad unreasonable wifeblush

bad dreams during the night. I dreamt very vividly that bugs were flying around my head and I was trying to get them and kill them....only then they all fell in the bed.

I leapt out, whacked hell out of the bed, then realised when whacking DH that I was dreaming, and it was 5am.


thing is, I laughed, I was not sorry, and I didn;t apologise, and he has been nursing me while poorly.

if this were him, I would be on here right now having a good old moan, and you would all be agreeing with me and telling me good things to retaliate.

you need to tell me off now.....I can take it.

or at least, make me feel better and tell me how vivid you dreams are

No, it's funny. YANBU
We have a friend who has leapt on top of his wife to "save her from the falling rocks" at least 3 times in the night. For a period of time she looked very tired and slightly startled all the time.

my DH does often yell at me to "get off the fuckin scaffold".

no idea who is ON the scaffold, and how he knows at 1am in the middle of the night, but hey, I guess they would need to get off.....tis dangerous after all to go on building sites during the nightwink

My mother had a dream last year whereby she was being crushed by tentacles which were wrapped round her. The only way to escape was to bite through them

Which would have been fine were it not for the fact that the dream stemmed from the fact that she had her arms wrapped round herself. The bruising and teeth marks faded eventually, the ridicule we give her has not.

and <<ouch>>......that must have hurt!!

you poor mum, altho I have to say, <<snigger>> too

I do this all the time. I keep dreaming that DS is falling (off of what I don't know) and I leap up in bed and grab DH and wake him up with a start.

Quite funny now.

I have just snorted tea all over my keyboard reading psychomum 'get off the fuckin scaffold'...

SoupDragon Fri 12-Jun-09 09:14:57

Luckily, she can laugh about it herself too. Snigger all you like (we guffawed though). I'm not convinced she hasn't bitten dad in her sleep too but, TBH, I wasn't keen to pursue that conversation...

H shook me awake once to shout "Bunting!" at me before he laid back down. I spent a good while sat bolt upright in bed with a startled look on my face. He also once did the same but said "Wizard's blenting. Wizards blenting! I know you think I'm mad but I'm not." hmm

psychomum5 Fri 12-Jun-09 09:17:34

that is not a conversation you need with your dad really is it.....

addictedtocrunchies, I have had dreams like that too.....DHs are rarely amused are they!!wink

however...on a sewwwious note

YABU to think it's funnt...your poor poor dh....

(do you feel better now, all reprimanded????)

Anyway...I would possibly have loved as well as apologised, lol

zipperdeedoodah Fri 12-Jun-09 09:22:39

Snorting at the scaf0fold!! {grin} it

I was once on a very strict diet... I woke DH up shouting "the pizza, the pizza, DO NOT eat the pizza or I will KILL you" - at which point I slumbered on, DH was left in a mildly traumatised state all night.

oh it is so funny...

DH quite often sits bolt upright in the middle of the night to catch the "rat" or "insects" he's felt on him - refuses to believe he's dreamt it until the morning. I usually also end up getting a bashing at the same time

I get my own back though - when DS was tiny I occasionally used to bring him into bed with us, and although I didn't realise it was obviously super aware even when asleep of where he was and able to stop him falling out. DH has every so often had to wake me up in the middle of the night as he wants to go to the toilet as I'm pinning him down in my sleep!

I had a dream when I was pregnant that DP had savaged the butter in the way that I hate (you know, digs the knife in willy-nilly and takes no care and attention in leaving the top nicely level and OCDish...)
When I woke up, processed the dream and realised it WAS just a dream, I still kicked him very hard for making me so cross in my sleep.
Now THAT'S unreasonable!
Also rofling at the scaffold grin

I literally am crying with laughter at this thread!! My partner talks in his sleep all the time, and I have quite vivid dreams too. we both regularly dream that the other one is cheating, to the point where i actually punched him in the back in my sleep!! ooops blush

kitbit Fri 12-Jun-09 11:18:44

SPB I do that regularly! Poor dh. If he so much as moves I throw an arm round, grab tight and "shush" him. Don't even know I'm doing it
Good to keep your hand in though - when staying at my Mum's ds and I slept in her VERY high bed. ds was tucked in but at about 3am I woke up to find my arm had shot out and was holding ds's ankle as it disappeared over the side. His head was about 1cm off the floor and he was still snoring. So if dh gets narky when he needs a pee in the night I sternly remind him that parenting skills need to be instinctive, and practised

SouthMum Fri 12-Jun-09 11:46:17

Apparently I laugh a scary poltergeist type of laugh in my sleep....

DP has also sat bolt upright, looked me in the eye and asked me "Wheres the Gecko?", I replied "he must be outside love <snigger>" to which he smiled and said "thought so" and went back to sleep!

I am pmsl at this thread!! Fantastic! DH once had a night out on the beer, went to bed as usual but sat up a couple of hours later saying "jack sprat, jack sprat" then went straight back to sleep. Must have been scintillating conversation in the pub that night ...

psychomum5 Fri 12-Jun-09 11:51:12

lol @ weegle........

alicecrail Fri 12-Jun-09 11:52:30

I am pmsl at soupdragon 'Bunting' and 'Wizards blenting' grin

oneforward20back Fri 12-Jun-09 11:55:20

my ex used to randomly stir and tell me it was his bed before shooving me onto the floor. Hitting the floor with a bump is not a great way to wake up. Plus he knew nothing of it in the morning. hmm

psychomum5 Fri 12-Jun-09 12:07:30

I am soooo happy I am not the only one to randomly attack their partner during sleep

missed the 'telling off'......yup, I feel told!!winkgrin

or should that be a blush....hmm

Ruby01 Fri 12-Jun-09 12:14:42

I talk in my sleep and have vivid dreams. I had a dream where someone was tickling my feet and wouldnt stop. I woke up to my DH staring at me, apparently I had been shouting 'I am going to wet myself' over and over in my sleep. I swear I am laughing while I type this grin
