Namely, I keep dreaming that my husband is leaving me!

We are very much in love and happy, and this has only started since the lockdown started.

It's so vivid and actually quite upsetting to the point I wake up relieved to see him next to me grin

Is anyone else having something similar?

Yes. Not so much upsetting but weird and very very vivid. DH has said the same.

Yes definitely, very vivid and I remember them more. Maybe because I’m not in such a rush in the morning to get out of the house.

Last night I was on a tri-bike clinging onto my cat for dear life because it was trying to get away whilst peddling furiously through someone’s house which was about a mile long?! (In my dream I mean, of course).

I’ve been having very vivid dreams but I’m not sure if it’s just because I’m pregnant.

Yes, I usually only remember a couple per week but I'm remembering all of them now in quite a lot of detail. Horrible ex was in last night's so I'm not sure this is necessarily a good thing...

Yes. I keep having very vivid alien invasion dreams where I'm hanging out the washing and look up to see crafts in the sky flying over - it's very pearl harbour like. I'm sure its lockdown with the stress, fear and loss of control.

Oh, I've been putting down to increased alcohol intake blush

I don't feel like I'm particularly stressed by this situation, feel very lucky, no homeschooling, wfh with no immediate threat to income, fairly relaxed workload, happy family life, no particular health anxieties but yes, I have been having the strangest vivid dreams. Quite often wake up in a distressed state, which us completely new to me since lockdown.

Yes!! Awful nightmares, every night!

Last night I dreamt that we moved house. It was so vivid and clear that when I woke up I was confused about where I was. Freaky!

They were talking about this on the radio today.
One thought is that it is because people are sleeping later or until they naturally wake up. Therefore you are getting your full REM sleep and that means more vivid dreams.

Yes I have been having vivid dreams. Last night's was a corker. Dreamt I was on some sort of cruise, sitting at a dinner table with other people, and one of them was Boris Johnson. Was so glad to wake up.

There was a section about this this morning on Womans hour on Radio 4 at 10am. With a psychologist. Well worth a listen.

Something to do with getting more REM sleep as we are not getting up so early and this type of sleep happens towards dawn.

You can listen again on the sounds app or the podcast.

Yes, dream flashbacks to specific points in my life/childhood

Ooh, I’ll listen to it!

Yes, I had one last night that DH and I went on holiday and we forgot to pick up our suitcases when we landed and we got to the hotel and realised and then I was just trying to make arrangements to pick them up but the airport was miles away, then I woke up. I also think it was Australia we went to, it was very vivid.

Maybe this is because I recently cancelled my Tui holiday to Austria and am waiting and worrying about the refund
