Fish dream?(11 Posts)
Ok so no symptoms still BUUt .. I dreamt of fish last night, .. this is possibly a pregnancy dream as catching can mean you are pregnant. if its true .. then i wonder if the fact i had two fishing lines that caught fish means theres two shock .. there are no twins in my family though so thats propbably just random and the dream could mean something else of course .. have taken a sample of fmu as no test so i can go to the shop once they are open .. only two hours to wait .. i wonder though if actually it only just (if i am) implanted and so wouldnt get a positive till a week late .. im 12dpoi think so implantation could be possible now if ovulated late right?
so i did a poundland hcg test stick and bfn ... not due till Saturday .. so maybe the dream was a coincidence.
I don't believe that dreams can tell you anything but I really hope it's a funny/happy coincidence for you!
@kinsters .. last time i was pregnant i had dreamt about it first, plus i have spoken to others that have had similar dreams on 6 occasions and been correct every time. its not like some magical fantasy thing, its science, hormones in the body trigger messages to the brain that you are pregnant so that the body cant start to prepare by loosening muscles etc .. the dreams are simply you picking up these messages while you sleep and seeing them in a dream. i appreciate how it can sound though when you dont consider why or how it works.
I had really vivid dreams about pregnancy for over two years while ttc. I was thinking about it so my subconscious was processing. Honestly, it's hokum.
no its not got my faint positive today, i have dreamt twice now on the day of implantation of being pregnant and both correct. x
Coincidence. It might have been true with you, but is NOT the case for everyone (not for me, for example). Not enough data to draw any conclusions.
Glad it worked out for you. My experience of ttc was that hope was a dangerous thing.
@phyciskate .. im not sure i think hope is a bad thing, i think maybe how we deal with the outcome is more what makes the difference? I can feel as though i can feel your pain/sadness through how you have expressed your feeling on hope with ttc. Im sorry that you experienced what you have, .. can i ask what your story is with ttc? if you wanna share, .. no worries if not of course.
I was ttc for about 2 and a half years, hopeful at first, which descended into depression and despair after about a year and a half. I saw people come and go, falling within a few months, having easy successful pregnancies, completely oblivious to how unfair it all was.
I had two chemical pregnancies. TTC changed me as a person. I am still bitter, despite currently being pregnant from our first round of IVF. I am annoyed that I had to go through all of this when for others, it's as simple as a click of the fingers. I am having a difficult pregnancy - nothing dangerous, just numerous small complaints (anaemia, severe pgp and some rib flare).
I saw hope peddled too often when there was none. I am a realist, not an optimist. I suffered depression and had to leave my profession as I couldn't cope with the stress of that and the stress of ttc for so long in that endless cycle of hope and despair.
So I researched. I am a scientist anyway (not a biologist by training). Knowing facts, figures and statistics helps me to temper my expectations.
I suppose I am just still very resentful of what a difficult experience I had when so many women will just have sex and fall pregnant and be none the wiser to the difficulties that so many other women confront when ttc. I wish my experience had been as blasee. I am sorry if I have taken any of that resentment out on you.
Honestly, it's great that the dream coincided with your being pregnant, but there is no scientific evidence to back up this being more than simply a coincidence.
@physicskate wow thank you for sharing your story and taking the time to do so.
I can understand, now that i know, why you feel the way you do. firstly congratulations on being pregnant, more so with the fact of what it has taken for you to get to where you are. That sounds like a crazy lot of things to go through and im sure i probably dont even know the half of it. ... I know you are struggling with the pregnancy because of the difficulties you are experiencing so i wonder if you are able to enjoy it at all? .. is there anyway you could deal with the pain of your journey to allow you to embrace the fact you have actually achieved what you wanted to? ,, because maybe it would be a case of not enjoying your present situation because you are busy looking back and holding slight resentment .. and then maybe it would cause you to keep looking back regretting the fact that you didnt enjoy the pregnancy more? obviously with being in pain etc its easier said then done and easy for me to say all of this but i only say it in case it helps in any way shape or form.
