Anyone dreamt themselves into labour.

With my last child i went into labour early in the morning, woke up around 5am, i was having a dream about giving birth and was annoyed that i woke up so early, kept trying to fall asleep again, until i realised the pain from labour wasn't just the dream, but real life. When i finally got up i was in full blown labour and the pain was bad, barely made it to the hospital.

Curious to see if this is common, i'm not sure if the dream fooled my body and sent me into labour or if labour started and it affected my dream.

Anyone else experienced this ?

This is my first so nope, but I'm hoping this happens to me tbh. I've had several dreams where I've given birth while asleep in my dreams so no pain etc. Kinda hope it happens like that even though I know it won't.

Oh I hope this works. I'll be envisioning labor before sleep tonight!
