Hi everyone,

Has anyone had 'vivid dreams'? I hear they are a preggo symptom. I've been having lots of scary dreams recently.

In other news, as a pcos sufferer I have been recently taking the correct dose of metformin, 2 tablets a day, previously I thought I was supposed to be taking one and also inofolic.

I am on day 26 of on average a 32 day cycle but I feel like my period is imminent. I wonder if the meds are doing their thing!!!

Confused xxx

I don't think my threads ever have a catchy enough title!

I can’t help other than say let’s hope it is as I’m in the same situation. I remember when I had my daughter I had vivid dreams but I don’t remember if I had any before I knew I was pregnant. Annoyingly I remember what it was like once I found out but nothing before

I’ve been having messed up dreams for the past week! Last night, everyone Ive ever met in my whole life, made a cameo appearance! Crazy. Anyway, I’m 21dpo(I think?!) and af is awol so who knows. Saying that, I’m about to lose all hope of getting a bfp any time soon!

My DP has vivid dreams. He's not pregnant.

I got very vivid dreams through all of my pregnancies

YES! This is a legitimate thing, when I was pregnant I had the most vivid dreams, they were horrifying - a lot of them revolves around my worries about babies health. But the dreams were like real life, so realistic I would wake crying (no tears) or I would wake sweating and breathing so heavily. I can still remember the horrible ones that will literally haunt me. I’m pretty sure I had them through my entire pregnancy but I swear it’s your worst fears hat you dream of when you’re pregnant.

Congratulations on your pregnancy and I hope your dreams are nice ones!! smile

Yes! Both times I was pregnant a big clue was mad dreams! I was a knight in one of them. I still remember it vividly. Bizarre!!

@troysmummy that’s helpful to know thank you! I’m sure the OP wanted a sarcastic answer! Why’s everyone so quick to throw a sly comment in there.
She was only asking!

Cupcakesandlove fingers crossed!

Somethininthewater 21dpo?! Sounds promising! When are you testing next?

TroysMammy when I told my hubby he said exactly the same thing!!! About being on a road trip in a white transit van with kids in the back! We don't have any kids!

Somethininthewater thanks, I thought I was going mad when I half remembered it was a symptom!

Wiggles9408 I'm so excited after reading your post! Hubby always tells me never to get over excited but I think, how often do you get to be over excited? So I'm gonna run with it! Woo hoo! Until I test! Dreams are very scary and have a massive cast of people!

user1485196412 that dream sounds a lot more pleasant than mine. Fingers crossed for tonight!

Morning. Another night of bizarre dreams! Testing this morning(if I can be bothered to drag myself out of my deliciously warm bed!) I know it will be bfn though

MaisyPops Mon 06-Nov-17 06:52:28

No idea.
I'm 8 days from POAS and have had bizarre dreams in the last few days.
I didn't know it's a symptom.
Fingera crossed.

Somethininthewater Mon 06-Nov-17 07:45:52

BFN 🙄🤷🏻‍♀️

I always get vivid dreams when pregnant but not until about 10 weeks onwards.

Poptart4 Mon 06-Nov-17 15:52:05

I've had vivid pregnancy dreams for the last 2 months and I'm still not pregnant sad I think its because we're ttc so it's obviously on our minds which is why we dream about it iykwim

Dreams pick up on your subconscious.

If you’re ttc or pregnant, you’re going to have a lot on your mind.

The only ‘symptom’ of early pregnancy is a postindustrial pregnancy test.

Sorry to be the party pooper

NimbleKnitter Mon 06-Nov-17 16:00:11

Ha! Positive, not postindustrial! Stupid phone

ScaryMary81 Mon 06-Nov-17 17:08:02

The most vivid dream was well before my 20 week scan, I was sat in front of a window, on beautiful sunny day, bouncing a baby boy on my knee - I went on to have a boy!

ScaryMary81 Mon 06-Nov-17 17:11:41

My first sign of pregnancy - I'm not someone who cries watching films and tv, I started to cry watching something about cats and I knew something was up, but didn't want to get my hopes up after years of ttc, but yes it was positive!

Mrsyorkie Mon 06-Nov-17 17:57:25

I used to have very detailed dream sex with a bloke at work. I couldn't look at him the next day.
I never told me husband. I used to genuinely feel like I'd cheated on him. Pregnant.

demirose87 Mon 06-Nov-17 17:59:06

I wouldn't really say it's a "symptom" as such but has been a side effect for me. During all my pregnancies, particularly my last one, I had the most crazy, vivid dreams. Some were about what my subconscious was worried about and others were just weird, think pirates and ghosts.

MaisyPops Mon 06-Nov-17 18:57:08

Oh i didn't realise we meant vivid pregnancy dreams. confused

I was gettinf quite excited that my recent vivid and utterly off the wall dreams might be a positive sign.

Cupcakesandlove Mon 06-Nov-17 19:27:28

My vivid dreams are not pregnancy related even when I was pregnant. I don’t usually have any dreams that I recall but when I was pregnant with my daughter I had really vivid dreams and have again for a week. I convince myself I’m pregannt every month. I really doubt I am but it’s nice to torture myself a bit - not but never mind x

TerrifyingFeistyCupcake Mon 06-Nov-17 19:29:52

Vivid dreams are indeed a thing in pregnancy, but they don't typically start until several weeks in. They're not a thing you get before or at the time of your BFP.

Bubblegum89 Mon 06-Nov-17 19:30:22

Agree with nimble it’s purely a subconscious thing at such an early stage. They may be a pregnancy symptom but not until you are well into a pregnancy by at least 5 weeks, same as any other symptoms you get in your tww
