Pregnancy Dreams Interpreteddream give birth

Dreams about pregnancy are loaded with possibilities for symbolism and meaning. Most of the time, interpreting a dream about pregnancy focuses on the symbolism of pregnancy, giving birth, or children, but the first rule of the DREAMS 1-2-3 system is to consider the obvious. The body has an early warning and detection system that communicates through dreams, so if you are female, sexually active, able to conceive, and dream about being pregnant, it’s a good idea to take a pregnancy test or see your doctor.

Once you rule out that possibility you can consider others.

Most dreams about being pregnant are not related to reproduction, and if they are related it is more likely to be about side issues like ability to conceive, feelings about being a parent, finding a partner, or preparations that need to be made to health, lifestyle, finances, job situation, or attitudes before getting pregnant. I’ll talk more about that in a moment. First though, a few of the main ways dreams use pregnancy as symbolism:

  • The dreamer is “pregnant” with an idea, thought, or feeling.
  • The dreamer is “giving birth” to something new in their life or in themselves.
  • Something is “gestating” inside the person.

Pregnancy can be used as a metaphor. People are said to be “pregnant” with ideas, thoughts, or feelings. Creative ideas and important projects are your “babies.” Giving birth is a ready-made metaphor for something new in your life, like something new you have created or new traits in your personality. Feelings grow or gestate within a person. For example, feelings of love grow in you for someone you’ve been dating. Dreams use these ideas to make metaphors that tell a story.

Men can dream about being pregnant and giving birth. It’s obviously symbolism because men can’t actually get pregnant. Here is a great example to illustrate how dreams can use the idea of “giving birth” to mean something new emerging in a person. The dreamer is a college-age male:

I dream I am pregnant and in the hospital giving birth. The doctor is a friend, a guy I know from high school, and the baby is actually his. He is the father.

I used this dream as an example in my book Dreams 1-2-3 because it is an awesome metaphor that vividly describes how the dreamer’s character is changing. The meaning is gleaned from the presence of the doctor-friend and the dreamer’s relationship with that person in waking life. I asked the dreamer about the personal characteristics of the friend depicted in the dream, and he described the guy as hard-working and successful. The dreamer had aspirations to be more successful, too, and looked to his friend as an example.

The baby symbolizes new qualities emerging in the dreamer. His friend is the father of the baby because he planted the seed for the dreamer to become more hard-working and successful. The dream is about giving birth to new character traits.

pregnancy dreams - birthing kittens

It’s only possible in a dream.

Stretch the idea of giving birth further and you can interpret a dream of giving birth to kittens, which symbolizes “kitten-like” qualities emerging in the dreamer. Kittens are playful and innocent, so the dream compares giving birth to kittens as a way of saying that the dreamer recognizes those qualities emerging in himself.

Also included under the umbrella of “giving birth” is creativity. A child is a creation, after all. As an example, when I wrote my first book the story idea was first “conceived.” Then it “gestated” as I researched and worked through the plot. It was fully formed after I finished writing and editing it. And to “give birth” I published it.

Compare that process to any creative endeavor. First an idea comes to mind, it grows, it matures, and eventually it is finished, birthed. Creativity is compared to the process of gestation because creative ideas sometimes slowly develop within a person. It’s a labor of love, and labor is another idea connected with pregnancy and birth. Something you have to work hard at can be compared to the labor of giving birth, especially when it is something you are trying to get out of you, like a creative idea.

A dream about giving birth to three dead fetuses symbolizes three art projects the person started but is unable to finish because her day job is getting in the way.

A dream about being pregnant with five babies symbolizes five computer programming projects the person is working on at her job training. She said she thought of her programs as her “kids.”

Dreams can connect being pregnant with the special care and treatment pregnant women receive. Along these lines, being pregnant can symbolize receiving special attention or consideration.

Another clever twist on the theme is to dream about being pregnant and it means you are anticipating something. “Anticipating” in one sense means anticipating the birth of a child. Dreams can use a comparison like that to refer to something else you anticipate.

We’ve only scratched the surface of all the possibilities for pregnancy symbolism. Two more vivid examples come to mind. In one dream, a young man dreams that his ex-girlfriend is pregnant. It freaks him out and he immediately thinks of telling her to abort. He feels guilty, but the symbolism has nothing to do with pregnancy. It’s about leaving a part of himself behind with his ex. If you get someone pregnant, a part of yourself is literally inside the person. In this case what he left behind was a piece of his heart.

In the other dream, a female has a recurring dream that she is pregnant and too far along to abort. She doesn’t remember having sex and is puzzled how she can be pregnant. She catches hell about it from her family. She feels like she is being blamed for something she did not do. Being pregnant in this dream is connected with blame, shame, and turmoil in her family. In some family situations, getting pregnant is the worst thing that could happen, a nightmare come true. The dreamer feels treated like she got knocked up or something.

As a moderator at Reddit Dreams I run across dreams from child-bearing-age females who think they never want to have kids, then a dream like this one changes their mind:

I am 25 and have been slowly warming up to the idea of MAYBE having a kid one day, way in the future, and that’s only because my friend had a kid and her son is kind of fun and cool to be around. Back in my early twenties I was one of those ‘no way, never in my life, no maternal instinct’ kind of girls. Up until this point in my life I have not wanted or tried to have a kid, and I haven’t been sad that I don’t have any.

So last night I had a dream that I gave birth to a little baby boy. I named him Samuel Wallace (everyone called him Sammy) and he was absolutely beautiful. I remember looking at him for the first time and stroking his cheek and looking into his blue eyes (my eyes) and feeling love so strong my heart felt like it was going to give out. I looked at him and was happy that he had my boyfriend’s nose. He grabbed my finger and I could feel his heartbeat while I held him. I cried with joy unlike any I had felt before.

When I woke up and realized it was a dream I was devastated. I have almost broken into tears multiple times today over the sense of real loss I feel. Now all I can think about is how I want a baby. (Link to original post)

reddit dreamsIt’s one thing to say you don’t want to have a baby when it’s hypothetical. It’s another thing to look at your baby in your arms during a hyper-realistic dream and your mind completely changes, as it did for this dreamer. The dream made her realize that she really does want to have a child, and while it’s not going to happen right away, she can start to prepare. By analyzing the dream she realizes she wants to make sure her child does not grow up in the same financially strapped situation as she grew up in, so she decides to start a baby fund. This is a textbook example of how your mind can be changed by a dream.

If you have a dream like this and your reaction to the baby is “ew, do I have to touch it?” it’s a sign that you really don’t want to have children. But the dreamer’s reaction says it all. It reveals her true feelings.

But what if you dream you are pregnant and it really means you are pregnant? More pregnancy dreams interpreted.

Having covered some of the symbolic uses of pregnancy in dreams, we return to literal examples. After all, pregnancy and reproduction are major areas of life. Dreams don’t usually just come right out and say, “You’re pregnant, kiddo” (though they can). They are more likely to give nonverbal clues like a game of Charades.

A clue dreams are known to give about pregnancy is provided through comparison to a tree or other growth of nature. Not only is the growth of a tree comparable to the growth of a person, but families are organized as “trees.” If you dream about planting a tree or a seed, you might be dreaming about becoming pregnant or starting a family.

The analogy extends to plants, vines, flowers and gardens, though there are other interpretations for these symbols. Don’t jump to conclusions.

Just because a symbol is present in a dream doesn’t mean it automatically represents one thing or another. Something like planting a seed in a dream can symbolize planting an idea in the mind. The symbol is interpreted in the context of the dream. For example, if you plant a tree in a dream with your husband, it reinforces the idea of the dream being related to starting a family. If you plant a tree in your front yard because you don’t want your neighbors to able to see in your windows, the dream is probably related to privacy.

Dreams can also use young animals as a sign of pregnancy, or to represent young offspring. In these dreams the mother and father will sometimes be in a setting together and run across a kitten, puppy, or other young animal. Again, though, you should consider other interpretations, such as a young animal can represent innocence or immaturity instead of pregnancy. For an example, see this post about kittens.

Women have been known to dream of water when they are pregnant because water is associated with pregnancy. A woman “breaks her water” when she is ready to give birth, and a baby developing in the womb is surrounded by opaque embryonic fluid. Water is also associated with emotion, and pregnancy can be a very emotional experience.

Because fish live in water, and human and fish embryos are almost identical, pregnant women sometimes dream of fish or aquariums.

Pregnant women are known to dream of worms, snakes, and other creatures that burrow. It’s a dramatic and symbolic way of describing a bodily process. The comparison is made because a fertilized egg literally burrows into the uterine lining.

Buildings — especially buildings under construction — pop up frequently in the dreams of pregnant women. Buildings can relate to areas of life that are “under construction,” and in dreams related to pregnancy the building might be a maternity ward, day care center, or baby room. Plus, needing more room to live in is a common issue for growing families.

Driving can be a metaphor for “going somewhere in life,” and a child seat in the back of the vehicle can symbolize moving forward in life with a child under one’s care.

Another sign of pregnancy is the frequency and intensity of dreams, both of which spike because of hormonal changes in pregnant women.

Of course, dreams can be direct, too. Some women report being told by a dream character that they are pregnant. The character is frequently a mom, grandma, or someone else the dreamer knows who has been pregnant and/or had children. Or the character can be a physician, particularly an obstetrician. And don’t forget the father: he can appear in dreams to announce the good news. And he can actually have dreams about his partner being pregnant.

I’ve read reports of women dreaming that they took a positive pregnancy test, and soon after found out they were really pregnant. They also report dreaming about shopping for baby clothes, or related activities, with their moms. The presence of a mom in a dream that includes other clues related to pregnancy can indicate the dream is referring to actual pregnancy and is not a metaphor, because one’s own mother is the strongest association most people have with motherhood. Or the dreamer might be hashing through issues, thoughts, and feelings related to pregnancy.

Here are quotes from women who discovered through their dreams that they were pregnant, or about to be. Some are paraphrased for readability:

  • “I had a lot of dreams about the sex of the baby and they were right.”
  • “I dreamed I had a son, then two weeks later found out I was pregnant.”
  • “I had a dream I had a girl, and three days later was the first day of my missed period.” (The dreamer was pregnant and delivered a baby girl.)
  • “The night I got pregnant I had a dream I was pregnant and had to tell my mom, my cousin, and my boyfriend (the father).”
  • “Before I found out I was preggo, I started dreaming every night of being preggo or giving birth.”
  • “I found out about both of my pregnancies through dreams. My first (pregnancy), I was eight weeks along and not paying attention to my body or cycles because they were so irregular to begin with. That time I had a dream about a sonogram with a baby on the screen. Then with my current pregnancy I had a dream with a positive home pregnancy test.”
  • “I had a dream I was pregnant with triplets. Sure enough, a few months later I was pregnant with triplets. They’re five months old now. Crazy stuff!”

As I discussed previously, some dreams about pregnancy and giving birth are related to preparing for pregnancy. Think of it as a simulation. In the dream you believe you really are pregnant or have a child. The dreams themselves can speak to preparations that need to be made. Here is a dream that shows what I mean:

I dream that I am pregnant and give birth to a baby. My first thought is I’m not going to be able to keep it because there is no chance I can get the time off work. So I bundle the baby in a white carrier bag and leave it behind my workplace. When I come back the next day, the bag is gone.

This dreamer’s fear is that the dream is telling her she is some kind of monster because she got rid of the baby. But the dream is an illustration of the fact she wants to have a baby when her work situation will allow it. Putting the baby in a carrier bag and stowing it away shows that she is saving motherhood for later in life, when she is in a better situation. To make it possible she has to find a job which will allow her the time off.

In a series of vivid maternal dreams, a female dreamer works through many issues related to pregnancy and raising a child, illustrating the ways she has to prepare before seriously considering the possibility: graduate from college, become more financially stable, get comfortable with being a nurturer. At the same time, the dreams are helping her prepare for a career in an occupation that requires her to be a caregiver.

Dreams about pregnancy are explained in more detail in my book Dreams 1-2-3

In another dream I interpreted, a woman dreamed about three children that are hers, even though she doesn’t have any children. They were children she had miscarried. Unborn children can appear in dreams. Women (and men) can dream about their future children and see every detail ahead of time — they even know from the dream what to name them!

Dreams tell stories many different ways. While often symbolic in meaning, pregnancy dreams can be literal. There are certain symbols – seeds and young animals, for example – that are known to appear in dreams indicating the dreamer is, or is about to be, pregnant. However, every symbol has alternative interpretations. It’s wise to consider a literal interpretation first – if you or your partner really is pregnant, you want to know as soon as possible. Just be careful to avoid jumping to conclusions.

  1. I don’t have dreams of being pregnant but last night i dreamed that my ob doctor told me that i was pregnant i would love to have another baby but not at this moment but i been feeling little butterflies in my stomach and something moving around since February of this year

    • The first rule of dream interpretation is to consider the obvious. It was your OB who informed you in the dream and you’ve been feeling butterflies. Get a pregnancy test. And please let me know what the results are.

      It’s possible that you are pregnant with an idea or a new possibility. There could be something new that’s gestating in you. Most dreams use symbolism, but sometimes they deliver literal messages. So yeah, get a pregnancy test. Good luck.

  2. I dreamt I birth to twins whilst visiting my friend and a few minutes she also gave birth to a baby girl and her mother decided to check on the sex of my babies and discovered they were girls. I then to struggle who they look like at the back of mind but didn’t care cos I was have happy I had twins. what does this dream mean?

    • My guess is you could be seeing something new in yourself being born, some new aspect of your personality or new project in your life. It could be something that you also see in, or relate to, your friend who is in the dream.

  3. i dreamt about all of us being at a beach/ very large creek that was really peaceful. we had to get out of the water cuz there was a tornado warning while were waiting on this tornado im taking pregnancy tests.the first one had a positive sign the second one had the word pregnancy and the third had the samme word but a blue phone shaped rattle beside the word indicating it was a boy. i felt anxious to tell zach but i got woke upafter piddling around a bit i went back to sleep and the dream continued. when the tornado was over i went by the creek and these fish were coming out of the water (bass) and coasting on the top of the water. i thought they were so pretty.

    • Wow, what a great dream. My first thoughts revolve around pregnancy being compared with a tornado. It would definitely shake up your life, and perhaps you fear that getting pregnant would mess up your peace of mind. Zach is your boyfriend? Another way of looking at it is the positive sign of the pregnancy test means you see positive signs for your relationship with him. The blue rattle indicating a boy might mean “boy” as in Zach. Maybe the tornado symbolizes difficulty you had in the relationship, but then the difficulty passed and it stirred up some good things in your emotions (the fish in the water). Maybe something has been brought to the surface.

      Or, you’re pregnant and the dream told you. Those are my guesses.

  4. I didn’t dream that I was pregnant. It was my oldest daughter that I seen take a pregnancy test that came back postive. So what does that mean?

    • Hey Carrie, I was away on a trip and am now able to reply. So you dreamed that your oldest daughter had a positive pregnancy test. One thing to consider is the dream expresses concern or a hunch that she really will get pregnant. Another possibility is you have observed that she has something creative growing inside of her. Also consider that your daughter could represent something about you and it’s you who has something growing inside of you. I see this sort of symbolism commonly with people who have an idea or something along those lines that wants to be “birthed.”

      • Wow. I had a dream that my daughter was giving me gifts and the last gift she gave me was a positive pregnancy test. I questioned her and she swore it was not her. Today is the day my cycle is suppose to start… I will wait to see…

        • Please update me on what happens. If you think of your daughter as a gift, it would make sense for the dream to have her deliver another gift for you…if you are pregnant.

  5. I had a dream that I went to see the doctor and had and ultrasound done and found out I was pregnant on the screen were three baby’s in the same sac! What could that mean please help.

    • Always consider the obvious first. If you are sexually active you should take a pregnancy test. Another possibility is you have three ideas or something like that “inside you.” You are “pregnant with ideas.” I suggest that you sit quietly and remember the dream, picture the ultrasound and the image of the three fetuses. Ask yourself, “what is inside of me?” And remember that while dreams can be literal — they can tell you that you are pregnant or will be soon — usually they are figurative.

  6. I had a dream I miscarried one day and I knew it was dangerous because my tubes are tied. I get home to tell my husband and he says I’m overreacting. Right after he says that I go to the bathroom and miscarry again, you can see the fingers and toes and little face, but he says don’t worry its gone now. My adopted mom is outside in a car and I go to ask her about it hysterically, but before I get to her, he tells me to come back inside. Our oldest child starts to worry so she distracts him while I sneak to an ultrasound place in the mall sponsored by a bank, and they tell me yes this was a baby. The tech gives me a new ultrasound and says there’s a new uterus that has been separated and created even though your tubes are tied and your baby is there growing.

    • The reaction of the husband-character is the place to focus first. It tells you that whatever symbolism underlies the dream is probably something he would say you overreact to. First, do you fear getting pregnant even though your tubes are tied? Or perhaps the dream is related to the desire to have another baby. Did your hubby push for you to have your tubes tied? Did you go along with it even though you wanted more children? Was affordability a factor? I ask because of the reference to the bank in the dream, which can symbolism something related to finances/money. To me, this dream could be a way of saying that you want to have another child even though it’s physically not possible, but that’s just a guess.

    • Well, if the dreamer is female I’d guess that the symbolism could be related to her being exhausted but still having to take care of responsibilities. But on the other hand, childbirth in dreams is closely associated with creativity, especially with “getting something out of you.” So perhaps the baby in the dream can be viewed as stemming from something that appeared to be over already, or from an area of your life that had been forgotten about. What I really need is more detail to take a better guess.

  7. Hi,My name is Erika and I am a soft butch. I already have a girlfriend and was kind of freaked out when I dreamed of being pregnant and wherever I go, I see countless of women who are also pregnant. What does that mean? We are planning to have a baby soon but I want my girlfriend to be the one who is pregnant and not me. please help me

    • Seeing countless women who are pregnant can be a way of saying the subject is on your all the time, or was on your mind the day or two before the dream. You being pregnant in the dream can mean the idea of having a baby has really gotten inside you. You are pregnant with anticipation, something like that. Rest assured, the dream is symbolism.

      One other thing to consider is the dream might be asking you if you’d be the one to get pregnant if it came down to it. Do you want the baby that much?

  8. I have a reaccuring dream that I find out I’m pregnant and I spend the rest of the dream either telling the father that I’m pregnant and he fails to hear me. Or I am dreading telling the father and I try the entire dream to find ways out of telling him. Sometimes the dreams involve telling other people as well but almost always the trouble with telling the father.

    • Start with the detail about trouble with telling your father you are pregnant. My guess is the dream could be using telling him you’re pregnant to represent something else you need to tell him (or another father figure in your life) but are having difficulty.

  9. I had a dream that I all of a sudden noticed that I was about 3-4 months pregnant and showing. I tell my friend how it’s not ideal and embarrassing because the father already has 2 kids by 2 different women, but I also mention that it is too late to abort the baby, but partly because I have warmed up to the idea of being pregnant despite the situation. This is weird because the father of the baby in my dream is a guy that I am not seeing anymore and he does have 2 babies already, but I have had my period since I’ve stopped seeing him. I am due to start my period tomorrow though. Also in my dream I was walking around the grocery store pregnant and rubbing my belly. I woke up disappointed and searching for answers since it has been eating at me all day. Could there be any symbolism in any of this? Thanks for your time!

    • Well, since you’ve had your period you can assume you are not actually pregnant. Perhaps the symbolism of being pregnant with his baby is a way of saying that he’s still inside you in the figurative and emotional senses. You broke up but haven’t gotten him out of your system.

  10. I had a dream last night that I was pregnant with triplets, 2 girls and 1 boy. In my dream I was surprise because I already have 4 kids and not planning on having any more children. I was also scared and worried because I didn’t know how I would be able to care for 7 children.

    • The symbolism of being pregnant with triplets could be an expression of feeling overwhelmed with caring for the children you have! Dreams set up scenarios that trigger feelings and emotions which you recently experienced. So if recently you felt overwhelmed by raising four children, your dream said “here’s three more” as a way of triggering the feeling of being overwhelmed. Ultimately it means that you need to consciously process these feelings and perhaps think through your method of contraception. This dream could be expressing fear that you will get pregnant again.

  11. Hello I’ve been having dreams of a little girl for about a month and a half. And my husband just had a dream 2 weeks ago of the same little girl I have been dreaming of. And just yesterday I had a dream that I took 2 home pregnancy test and they came out positive the first one I had seen it said 1+ and I was so happy I ran to my sister’s and showed them but then it disappeared so they told me to take another one so I did and it read positive so I was so happy I showed them and ran to show my mom. It felt so real. What could this mean help please!!

    • You have two ways of looking at it. Dreams can foretell pregnancy, and sometimes they create scenarios to help you decide if you want to be pregnant or a parent. The other way of looking at it is the dream is saying you’re pregnant in the metaphorical sense — with an idea, a feeling, a new interest. The detail about running to tell your mom suggests that the dream could be related to actual pregnancy or desire to be a mother. It appears to be a subject on your mind.

  12. We’ve been trying for a while to get pregnant but so far it’s not happened for us.

    Throughout this I’ve not dreamed of pregnancy at all, however last night I dreamed of my sister telling me she thought I was pregnant and should take a pregnancy test. I told her I’d taken countless tests and they had all been negative, but she continued being insistent that I tale another test. So I did in the dream and I woke up just as I was waiting for the results.

    In real life I have taken a few tests recently and they’ve all been negative.

    Any perspective you can share would be great.

    • It sounds familiar from what soon-to-be pregnant women report. It might be a way of encouraging you to continue trying to conceive. Does your sister have children? If so, the dream might use her as a character because she’s already a mom. But there’s always a chance pregnancy is symbolism in the dream.

  13. Hello, I had a dream that my deceased mother was pregnant. She told me she was having the baby on May 9th. I told her I thought she was only 7 months. I told her maybe I shouldn’t go to north Carolina. See in real life I plan to travel to NC to be with my cousin on mother’s day weekend because she lost her mother in Feb. This mithers day is going to be hard for my cousin..,so I didn’t want her to be alone.

    What does this mean? Thank you

    • Hi Nicole, pregnancy in this dream can mean that you are assuming a role that your mother played before she passed away. Telling her in the dream that maybe you shouldn’t go to NC might — might — be a way of saying you aren’t sure about yourself in this role, or you have some other doubt about the trip. I get that idea from your reaction saying that she’s only seven month pregnant when, according to regular logic, she’d be almost ready to give birth. To me, that looks like symbolism for being unprepared.

  14. Hi, I had a dream that I was told by a tarot lady that I was pregnant. She started by telling me that something will seal my relationship…then I ask her if it was a baby, she told me I would find out threw out the days. All of a sudden I’m caring a baby boy that’s crying and my mom is helping me prepare the bottle. Then I see a picture of my boyfriend caring that baby boy. I’m on birth control, can this dream mean something else?

    • Well, how do you feel when told you’re pregnant? If it’s a positive response, perhaps it’s a way of saying the time has come. Or perhaps it’s something to talk about with your boyfriend. Notice that the theme is “What will seal the deal with my relationship with my boyfriend?” And next you are pregnant. Perhaps the dream is a reflection of related thoughts. You think that having a baby together will do it. In which case, having a baby in the dream is simply a reflection of thoughts about your relationship. It’s not some sort of prophecy. However, it might be a self-fulfilling prophecy.

  15. I dreamt that my boyfriend was in the car waiting for me when I got in the car I told him let me see it and he had a smile on his face when I looked at it, I told him you left it sitting out for a long time because it look kind of faded he told me it is positive he said see look the 2 lines we were both very excited he kissed my tummy.
    what could this mean

    • You’ve got different ways of looking at it. One, you could soon be blessed with a child. Two, dreaming about a positive pregnancy test is symbolism for something else that’s new. Like, did you recently fall in love with your boyfriend? Did something happen in your relationship recently that you’ve waited a long time for, or have your hopes for something been fading, such as the hope of having a child? I ask because of your remark about leaving out the test. If so, the positive test could mean it will soon happen, or be a way of encouraging you to keep trying, to stay positive and keep your hope alive.

  16. Last night I dreamed that I took a pregnancy test an it was postive, my mom who is deceased was in my dream as well. I took the pregnancy test to her an told her I didn’t want to keep the baby I wanted to have an abortion. The whole time she was smiling saying I had to keep the baby an everything was going to be okay. I cried, I been thinking I might be pregnant an in the back of my head out of fear I’ve been saying if I am I’m not keeping it.. I just wish my mom was really here to guide me through if I am.

    • Tasha, it’s hard to say what this dream means but my feeling is your wish for guidance might be coming true. Your mom is still within you — her memory and what she taught you is part of you, always will be. You really are going to be ok, just as she promised. So here’s my take on this. Perhaps the dream is related to getting pregnant, but not necessarily that you are pregnant right now. When the time comes you have already worked through the question of whether to keep the baby. In this sense, the dream is a simulation, a gut check. I suggest that you really think it through. Follow your innermost feelings. To be safe, take a pregnancy test.

      I have worked through many similar dreams and sometimes–perhaps most of the time–they are symbolism for the idea of pregnancy, as I spell out in my post. Perhaps you have been thinking about starting something new (symbolized as a baby) and want to back out, but part of yourself knows better, knows that you should push ahead.

      But I tell ya, when females dream about getting pregnant and the possibility of it actually happening is very real, I find that it’s often related to making babies. But again, it’s not to say that you are pregnant right now, but that you need to think this through. Life is amazing and whatever created us wants to see more new life in this world, and it really will help you. Plus, you have help from people who love you and are on the other side, like your mom. Talk to her in your heart — in my experience, people never die, they just leave their bodies and are eager to help us who are in this world.

  17. I’m 8 weeks pregnant and ive had a dream the last 3 nights that I keep getting told I miscarried. I’m honestly scared what do these dreams mean

    • If miscarriage is a fear that was already on your mind, the dream could be reflecting your thoughts. Miscarriage is a big fear for pregnant women and needs to be consciously addressed. Be ready for the possibility without believing it’s actually going to happen. Just tell yourself that either way you’ll be ok. I’ve been through miscarriage with my partner and it’s awful losing a baby like that, but it’s really important to know in your heart you will be all right and when the times comes, you can get pregnant again and deliver a happy, healthy baby.

  18. I just woke up from a dream that I went to the doctor because my stomach aches and I was pregnant (I saw a positive test) and I had to tell my bf. I was scared because we can’t afford kids right now. I told him and he cried with happiness. Then I told my bestfriend she cried with happiness. Then I woke up and right now my stomach feels like a period cramp. But I don’t feel anxious. Weird right?

    • Dreams respond to physical sensations experienced while asleep and turn them into symbolism. I can see how a period cramp can be turned into “pregnant” by the dreaming mind. It’s an interesting twist, for sure.

  19. Last night I had a dream that I took a pregnancy test and it was a faint positive, so I took another one and that one was clear as day positive. I looked down at both and the lines were bold red. I then seen a beautiful baby boy, and I looked at my mom and said he has his daddy’s ears. What can this mean?

    • If you have been considering getting pregnant, perhaps the faint “yes” of the test reflects your initial thoughts about the subject. It’s like saying “well, I sorta want to have a child.” Then, on second thought, you realize the desire is stronger than you initially thought. That’s my guess. Search your heart and I bet the answer will become clear.

  20. I am currently 26 weeks along and have been having some incredibly strange dreams. Last night I had a dream my unborn baby was the baby from twilight. She was born and like a week later she was two months old. Kind of freaks me out.

    • Perhaps the idea of having a baby feels unreal to you and that’s what your dream means by referencing Twilight. It’s common to have strange dreams while pregnant. All those hormones in your system.

  21. The last few days I’ve been dreaming of myself finding out I’m pregnant but the dream I had last night was all too real, I was sitting with my grandmother, my mother and my sister who’ve all had children and we are talking and they tell me to take a test because they believe I’m pregnant so I take a test and it comes out positive, can you tell me what it means?

  22. The last few days I’ve been dreaming of myself being pregnant but last night’s felt all too real, I was sitting with my grandmother, my mother and my sister all who’ve had children and we are talking and they tell me they believe I’m pregnant so I take a test and it comes out positive, can you tell me what it means?

    • Because you are with relatives who’ve all had babies, it’s more likely that the positive test is a sign you’ll soon be pregnant. But it might mean “think positively” about the subject. It might be a while till you actually get pregnant, presuming you want to and are trying, but the dream is a good indication it will happen…eventually.

  23. I had a dream me & my boyfriend had a baby girl. He always told me if we have a baby he wants a boy..what does this mean.?!

    • Perhaps it’s a way of saying you’d be happy either way, presuming that’s how you felt about it during the dream. Having a boy is a 50/50 proposition. Does it really make that much of a difference if you have a girl?

  24. i had a dream of me taking a pregnacy test not just one but 4 it caime out positive is like i was making sure i really was. it was weird all my family was their in my dream wen i told them everyboddy was jumping around of emotion .. i wanna know wats does it mean?

    • I can only take a stab at what the dream means, but I’d begin by asking yourself if you want to get pregnant, and if so, how far you’re willing to go to make it happen. Or perhaps it’s related to putting the thought in your head. You see the reaction of your family to the good news, but how do you feel when you find out your pregnant? And finally, how many times have you tried to get pregnant, assuming you’ve tried at all? Maybe the fourth time is the charm.

  25. I keep having this recurring dream that I am pregnant and catch my husband cheating on me. Afterwards, I go into labor, and I can feel the pain physically and emotionally of both, and I am so mad at him, but he just keeps on cheating and acts like it’s no big deal. Plus in a few of the dreams he turns into my ex who was, in life, very abusive and cheated on me regularly, but he isn’t abusive in the dream.(He passed away a few years ago) He just smiles and again, acts like none of it is a big deal. In the dream my children are also there and I ask him how could he do this with them and doesn’t he care that it’s time for the new baby, but he just keeps cheating. Help!

    • I recognize the theme of this recurring dream and can assure you it’s pretty common in people who are upset with their mate. Look at the essence of your husband-character’s actions and basically he’s abandoning you in a time of need, a time when you need him most. The recurring aspect of the theme indicates the situation is ongoing, not a one-time event.

      You might be able to identify exactly what’s the driving force behind these dreams by asking yourself what he does that makes you mad. Also, ask yourself what ways your husband reminds you of your ex. Do they both have a bad habit of missing the obvious or being absent physically or emotionally when needed?

      With other people I have helped understand this “cheating” theme in a dream, we’ve ultimately found a root cause in a perception that their mate is not “stepping up.” Dreams love to make comparisons, and cheating often is just an expression of feeling betrayed or ignored. You have a need that’s not being met. Notice that the dream character playing the role of husband doesn’t even seem to care or notice the angst he causes. That can mean that your husband really isn’t aware of how much a particular behavior negatively affects you. And please keep in mind that he is a character in the dream and that means his behavior is a reflection of your thoughts, feelings, and perceptions, not necessarily his.

  26. For the past two weeks I have had dreams that start out with me looking at a positive pregnancy test, then I start to develope my stomach over a few months, then I finally reach 9 months & give birth, but I never see the baby, one of the dreams went the same way but with one extra detail of the baby daddy taking the baby from me & saying he’s keeping it, I know the guy in person, it’s the only guy I have ever loved but I want to know why do I repeatedly keep having the same dream like this.

    • This dream has the classic signs of something developing in you, something “growing on you.” Hard for me to say what it could be, but pregnancy is often associated with creativity, and creativity is a broad subject. A key detail is the part about the guy you know taking the baby. Perhaps it’s related to your feelings for him. The feelings developed — you started to love him — but you can’t keep them, apparently. It might be a way of saying you realize the friendship won’t develop into anything more.

  27. Ive been dreamimg every night simce my last period that i get positive pregnancy tests. Last night i had one and we were in a car getting food and it showed to bold pink lines, i looked over and told my s/o “ii’m pregnant. At first hes excited and tells the lady. But later he starts to not like it and tells me to get rid of it and the feeling of joy i had leaves. Ive had others where my mom tells me im pregnant but doesnt want me to be. I want a baby more than a
    nything.

    • Pink is a color of love and affection, so it’s possible that the dream used the scenario of being pregnant as a way of saying you want something to really love like you’d love a child. Your husband’s reaction might be a projection of a feeling that he doesn’t love you as much — or doesn’t show it as much — as he used to. It could play in with the idea of having a baby because ideally you have a baby with a partner that really loves you.

      Please keep in mind that this is just one way of looking at it.

      This type of dream is very common for women wanting to get pregnant…the positive pregnancy test, the presence of the dreamer’s mom and partner. In many cases, the dreams work through issues related to getting pregnant, such as being ready for it. It’s not just physically ready but personally, financially, materially. To me, your dreams seem to be saying something’s not right.

  28. I had a dream two nights ago… my husband and 3 year old daughter were on either side of me. Both kept saying “you are pregnant” and I kept responding with “you guys.. I’m not pregnant”. In my hand is a pregnancy test and the results are starting to appear… I look at it again and it’s positive. My husband and daughter are smiling, cheering and saying “I told you” “you’re pregnant”. It was a short to the point dream that actually woke me up two minutes before my alarm for work.
    We have been trying for awhile and gave up trying 6 months ago and are just letting things happen if it happens. So it would be a wonderful thing if that’s what this dream is trying to tell me.

    • I can’t say if the dream is actually saying “you’re pregnant,” because there’s a good possibility it’s telling to you to “be positive.” I think people are too quick to assume a dream like this one is a message about actual pregnancy. It could even be unrelated to physical pregnancy and instead it refers to being pregnant with an idea, thought, or feeling. But because you have been trying to get pregnant and decided to just let things happen, and it’s been a while (six months), my sense of it is the dream is saying stay positive. Let things happen. It’s all right.

      And besides that, if you’re like I was with my partner when trying to get pregnant, the extra sex is a big bonus ;)

  29. I had a dream two nights ago… my husband and 3 year old daughter were on either side of me. Both kept saying “you are pregnant” and I kept responding with “you guys.. I’m not pregnant”.

It was a short to the point dream that actually woke me up two minutes before my alarm for work.
    So it would be a wonderful thing if that’s what this dream is trying to tell me.

    • Hey, I can’t find whether I replied to you. It’s been three weeks since this dream. Are you pregnant?

  30. I’ve had a dream very vivid that I took a pregnancy test that was positive and said i was three weeks pregnant could I be?

    • Could you be pregnant? Yes. Are you? Well, it’s wise to take a pregnancy test. But you can also think of a pregnancy test in a dream as “testing” how you feel about the subject, and testing positive means you like the idea.

  31. I have had pregnancy dream every night for the past few days and most of them were about me taking positive pregnancy tests and I had one dream that a woman took my baby and killed her. Can someone please help me understand?

    • Because the dream theme recurs, it means something about the subject is heavy on your mind, the situation is ongoing, or a message is trying to hard to get through to you. Most dream characters represent something about you and/or your life, so take a hard look at the woman in the dream and ask how, metaphorically, something is taking away the possibility of getting pregnant. It could be something related to health or circumstances — maybe now is not the time to get pregnant. It could be something in your thoughts and feelings that’s “killing” your “positive” feelings.

  32. I had a dream that my bosses wife gave birth (they have been trying to start a family but no luck) to a baby, not sure if the gender. He ran to her as if he wasn’t near and was trying to make it to for the both of his child -I was running along side of him. Then the doctor proceeded with telling them there two other babies in there. TRIPLETS!

    What does this mean for them and myself?

    • The lack of detail such as knowing the gender of the baby makes me think this dream is not a premonition but is instead a story about something going on with you. A baby is a creation and in dreams it can be used for any sort of thing you create or make. I’ve seen examples of babies symbolizing projects and ideas, anything you might call “my baby.” The detail that might lead you to an answer is the triplets. Can you think of anything involving your boss that comes in three?

  33. I had a dream I took a pregnancy test, and it came back positive. I shook my head no, then proceeded to tell my mom I wasn’t pregnant and she explained to me that I was in fact pregnant.

    • Your reaction shows how’d you’d really feel if you found out you are pregnant. Your mom is the best example you have of a mother, so that’s a sign that a dream is referring to actual pregnancy and not using it as symbolism. I suggest that you take a pregnancy test. If it comes up negative, consider the dream to be a reality check or gut check and make sure you do everything you can to avoid getting pregnant at this time. It seems pretty clear that now’s not the time.

  34. Last week my husband had a dream I was pregnant and that same night I had a dream I was holding a baby and my mother was in the dream. Today I had a dream of a positive pregnancy test. What can this mean?

    • While some dreams can give premonitions about future pregnancies, most of the time the theme reflects your thoughts and feelings. Are you thinking about having a child? If so, the positive pregnancy test might mean that you feel positive about the idea.

  35. I had a dream that had absolutely nothing to do with my children’s father then all of a sudden we’re laying in bed together. He literally came outts nowhere and layed next to me on the left side of the bed Fully clothed. He looked tired and didn’t talk. I then begin looking through a bag while in the bed that contained multiple unopened packs of batteries. While looking through the bag I found the very first pregnancy text that I ever took which was s clear blue digital. When I looked at it I expected it to say pregnant like I did ten years ago which resulted in the birth of our first child. Instead it had said the urine was to light to read but it also had a little blood on the inside which never happened in real life when I took it.

    • Batteries are stored energy, and when looked at in the context of the dream, it could mean that you have more babies in you. You want to have another child. That’s just a guess.

  36. In my dream my husband and I were standing side by side watching the pregnancy test turn positive. I was wondering what that means.

    • My guess is it shows that you and your hubby feel positive about the prospects of getting pregnant. It might mean you’re well-prepared, or at least feel good about it.

  37. I had a dream of a girl I liked in high school and I made her pregnant and I was anxious to have the baby and I changed my lifestyle and became a hardworking man for my family but I have a girlfriend I’ve been dating for four years what could that dream mean?

    • First, consider the possibility that the girl actually symbolizes your current girlfriend. Dreams are known to use surrogate characters to give you distance to observe and allow you to react from your gut.

      Second, the scenario might simply be a way of saying you can get the best out of yourself if you have something worth fighting for. You’ll change and be a hardworking man under the right circumstances. For me, it’s happened as my writing career has taken off. My books are my babies and I do everything in my power to make them the best I can.

  38. Hi,

    Currently trying to conceive. During our vacation in Hawaii last week,my husband woke up, mind you still in sleep state,he asked me if I could see the baby? I kinda freaked out and I asked “fully awake”,what baby? He said the baby in the dark,then he got startled and then said they’re lots of them. Then he fell back asleep and doesn’t remember a thing.

    Last-night, I had a dream that I felt something wet and gooey and I reached down and seen this thick mucus on my hands and said, “I just lost my mucus plug,” and then I woke up.

    Your thoughts?

    • Wow, interesting dream imagery. Darkness in a dream can mean, simply, that something isn’t seen in the personal sense. Having a baby is a goal but you’re still feeling your way in the dark. It’s a goal that hasn’t materialized.

      Your dream about the mucus plug could be a way of expressing the idea of something that was blocking your ability to conceive. It could be a physical thing, but also think in general terms about the process of creation. A baby can be created in your mind and heart before it becomes part of your body. As a woman, you are a vessel of creation, not just physically but in the sense of yin, the feminine creative principle that receives the energy of yang and turns it into abundance of life. It happens in the deepest recesses of your being. Sometimes the imagery related to that process is shown as wet, gooey stuff. It’s the raw material of creation, and through you as a woman it’s given shape and definition. Your entire being is, in a sense, a womb.

    • Your dreams can predict and even foretell pregnancy, and on the other hand they can send a message to stay positive and keep trying. Either way, if this was my dream, I’d be very encouraged by it. I’d love to know how things turn out so please stay in touch.

  39. I just woke up from a dream that left me feeling extremely happy. In my dream the guy That I am seeing bought me a pregency test and was eager for me to take it. I believe that the test was positive and that my belly begin to cramp ( kinda similar to when I found out that I was pregnant before) , then in the dream we were in the car with my family.. He sat in the back with his already son. He seemed happy or rather okay that I was pregnant. It kinda felt like we were in a relationship in the dream but in reality we are not. I don’t think that I am pregnant but we had sex a few days ago so this freaked me out. Plus we were talking about babies days ago. What do you think?

    • My initial thought is the dream reflects your conversation with him about babies and how you’re digesting it. Perhaps the eagerness about the test is a “test the water” situation. He’s eager to know your thoughts and feelings about it. Or, you project your eagerness onto him. Since you had sex with him a few days ago, perhaps you’re eager to find out if you got pregnant, and the test symbolizes how you’ll find out.

  40. I’m 28, my husband is 45 and we are very…. “Active”…. Last night I had 3 dreams back to back…. In the first dream, I dreamed that I took a pregnancy test then left it in the bathroom to wait for the results then my husband went to use the restroom when he came out he had the test in his hand and told me that I am pregnant….. In the second dream, I dreamed that my husband and I were laying down cuddling when I looked up at him and told him that I am pregnant onto which we started talking about it (in a very positive way) and he seemed happy about me being pregnant…. In the third Dream, I dreamed that I was giving birth to our daughter and we held her in our arms….. What could these dreams mean?

    • Odds are that the dream is a reflection of your desire to have a baby and the underlying message is to stay positive and let things happen on their own. It sounds to me like you two have a good marriage in which to bring a child into. Good luck.

  41. In the past 2 weeks I’ve had 4 different dreams and in each I was pregnant. The first 3 times it was a girl and in 2 of those occasions I gave birth prematurely by 1-2 months. On the 3rd dream of the girl I dreamt that I was told she was premature but after doctors checked she was full term. Then last night I dreamt that I had a baby boy that was also supposedly premature but wasn’t. And the doctor told me he was healthy. And the weird part was that my husband was not in the room because he was filling out papers, but my 3 yr old son was their and was excited.

    • When dreams have this much variety centered around one theme, it’s likely to be symbolism, perhaps related to the idea of something happening prematurely. Pregnancy is only used as a theme because of its connection to that association. It’s hard to say what could be premature in your life right now. Have you been thinking about having another child? If so, do you have a difference in opinion with your husband about it?

  42. I had a dream, very clear with specific details and imagery, but I can’t figure out what it’s really relating to in my life. In real life, my boyfriend and I are currently in a long distance relationship while he finishes a long-term work contract in China. He’s made many mistakes towards our relationship in taking this job, not communicating, and not putting enough effort or energy into our relationship or me at a critical point where it requires even more priority (given the circumstances). I’ve also sacrificed a lot for him to take this opportunity, while he completely changed what would have been our work & life plans going forward – it may all be for nothing if we can’t make it work. His mistakes have gone so far as to almost end the relationship several times.

    In the dream I was hanging out at a mansion that belonged to Taylor Swift, of all people… There were a mixed crowd of celebrities and normal friends sitting around, very casually talking and doing nothing specific. My attention is drawn by a towering vase filled with gigantic, perfect red roses in the room, about 12 feet high. I said what amazingly beautiful roses they were wishing to myself that I had flowers like that, and Taylor said they were delivered for me. I told her I didn’t understand, who would be delivering flowers for me at Taylor’s house?

    Everyone fades away from the background to give us privacy, as my boyfriend comes out saying they were from him and he’s so sorry. While sincerely apologizing, he hands me a card, presumably to go with the flowers. But the card is not an apology, it’s a baby announcement that I’m pregnant and having a boy. I’m shocked by this news, and not sure if I’m happy because I’ve never really particularly wanted children. While I try to process all this and determine how my boyfriend feels, he seems truly sorry for his previous actions and excited to be having a baby with me and that it’s a boy. I don’t even understand how he knows this and I don’t, especially if I’m far enough along to know the gender for certain. I’m touched by the apology and confused about the pregnancy when I wake from the dream. I know for a fact in real life (from my doctor) that I am not pregnant since the last time we were together, there was never a concern of pregnancy during our relationship (it was tested only because of a necessary surgical operation where it’s required), nor have I been with anyone since the last time I saw my boyfriend.

    I can understand some of these elements in the way that I’m looking for an apology from him and feel entitled to being treated better in real life, hoping he’ll step up and be a better person to me and make amends. I don’t know if the roses are just a part of the apology or another symbolism or why they are so large…. Is this something about a “grand gesture”? I also don’t understand the pregnancy element at all. Am I just “pregnant” with ideas over the relationship and what’s been happening? Is it the stress of the real life relationship morphing into dream stress situations? What does having a boy specifically with him have to do with anything? Is it only that I’m having “difficulty” with “men” in my life? Am I worried about getting “stuck” with him as a result of a child being involved? Because I’ve been the one making all the attempts to keep us together, not end it… I certainly want him in my life, and wouldn’t feel trapped – I only worry that this lack of effort is truly who he is rather than who I thought I met. Why am I suddenly friends with Taylor Swift? Why would she be facilitating our reconnection!? I know it was simply a dream, but I really don’t understand the connections!

    • I think you have already answered your questions. Everything in the dream is a projection of your inner world, so you can view the oversized roses as a grand gesture, and the setting at Taylor’s house as wanting to be treated with more importance by your boyfriend. The pregnancy part is the real key, and my guess — and this is just a guess — is it’s a metaphor for your relationship. He’s inside of you, part of you in a way that’s very close and personal. That’s why the baby is a boy. Unless you felt stuck with his baby in the dream, I don’t think that’s being expressed in the story. But perhaps the there’s an idea here related to all your eggs being in one basket.

  43. Hi, I dreamt last night that I gave birth to a baby boy, very cute and handsome. I was filled with much Joy breast feeding him, nurturing and admiring him. Every minute I will go where he’s lying down to breast feed him, in that dream I was very happy and told my husband that by this time next year our baby(Simife) would be celebrating his one year birthday. So I was just jumping up and thanking God for it. And woke up from sleeping.
    I’m still on ttc for years now(trying to conceive )and few days to my period.

    • I find that dreams like this one are often connected with keeping a positive spirit about getting pregnant and having a child. It’s a good sign and big encouragement to keep trying to conceive.

  44. Hello last night I had a dream that we were at my parents house and that I was sitting down and I looked over and there were twins on my side,and I thought to myself omg are they mine?.they looked just like me and my husband is finally got to see their faces, But it was weird because got up and I was talking and I felt like my tooth was loose so I touched it and it came out and I looked up and there was a doctor/dentist there and I told her can we fix this and she just said oh yes we can and while I was talking I felt another tooth loose and I pulled that one out also. The lady said oh wow 2? I got scared and woke up!! Could you help with this dream?

    • In dream interpretation traditions there’s a strong connection between losing tooth and losing something else that’s important, such as children. Miscarriage can be symbolized as losing a tooth. You lose two teeth, and in the beginning of the dream you have twins. It seems to be connected, plus you’re at your parents and that suggests the dream could relate somehow to being a parent. But that’s all I can really say, other than the doctor’s statement that she can fix the problem. It’s possible that losing the teeth symbolizes the loss of something else that comes as a pair. But if you are trying to conceive I’d guess that the dream is visualizing some issue with conception. You could be losing the fertilized egg before you’re even aware that you’ve conceived. That’s just a guess though.

  45. Wow that is deep! Thank you!! I just hope when i do become pregnant I don’t have a miscarriage. I am having issues on getting pregnant tho, but thinking positive!

    • The dream has a good a sign because the problem can be fixed. My guess is your dream gave you a glimpse into a subconscious healing process. So yeah, stay positive.

  46. Hello,

    I have been being asked in real life lately if I am pregnant, or people have asked my friends if I’m pregnant. I was also told I’m glowing. Last night I had a dream where all of my friends asked if I’m pregnant or that I am pregnant. My very close friend who is like a sister or a cousin to me and is actually my boyfriends cousin said I was pregnant in the dream as well. Could this be a sign I have indeed conceived, or am I just having this dream because it has been brought up I my everyday life?

    • Well, think of it this way. Being told you’re pregnant could symbolize the reactions you’ve been getting from people. It doesn’t mean you are pregnant, but that you come off as happy and content. It’s been a few weeks since you left your comment so by now you should know if you’re pregnant. Is that the case?

  47. For 2 months now I’ve been having pregnancy dreams like me buying baby shoes(girl), me taking a pregnancy test but couldn’t see the results, and Lastnight I had an dream that my boyfriend said to me that Im going to be pregnant soon so what does this all mean ?

    • If you’ve been trying to get pregnant, the dreams could simply reflect it, and being told you’ll soon be pregnant is a way of making you believe it. It’s a way to keep you focused and positive. Buying baby shoes can symbolize preparing for the journey of pregnancy.

  48. I felt like I was half asleep and half awake. I felt a small round ball like feeling in my stomach/womb as I laid on my stomach I myself say in this state of dream it’s my baby, I need to roll over so I don’t hurt the baby by laying on it. Then I heard a boys voice calling out, “mom, mom,” and I woke up.
    The round ball turned out to be a beanie baby “flamingo” my sons friend Anna gave to me, but he sleeps with it and he’s been sleeping with me because my husband has been out of town for almost 4 weeks.
    I asked my son if he was calling out for me and he said no! Later that day I has a clairaudient experience, it was a young boys voice saying,you’ll have my sister’s first and then you will get pregnant with me right after. My name is Jordan, please name me Jordan River. That name never ever crossed my mind in naming a child of mine. I receive the names of the sisters while I was vacationing in Hawaii. I have some spiritual gifts, and I can read for others, but never myself. This is why I come to you for help. I’ve been dreaming of the ocean, fish, etc….and here lately I have this connection/drawn to the color turquoise and owls.

    Can you interpretate?

    • I know of a few accounts of being told ahead of time what to name a baby. To me, if you can believe in the afterlife, it’s not so hard to think the soul exists before birth in the body and even helps to make arrangements. If Jordan really is a soul that wants to be your baby, you can communicate with him anytime. He’s connected with you and reaching him is like making a mental phone call. Relax in a quiet place, maybe light a candle, and speak through your heart to him. It’s possible that the dream is just a very realistic story that’s symbolic for something developing in you, but only you can know the truth of it.

  49. I had a dream that I was sitting on a porch and some woman I didn’t know told me I was pregnant and that she was a physic

    • To me, this looks like it could be symbolism for someone who thinks they know a lot about something, or what’s about to happen, but it’s suspect.

  50. Hello my husband and I have a 7 yr old and been trying to have another baby since June2015 I been having dreams about wasps and snakes but lastnight I have a dream we went to a store and by the doors where you walk in people had a machine thwy sid it let you see how many babies you are pregnant with and hear the heartbeat. Curious and kind if feeling I was pregnant, I said I’ll try. I put the little sonogram thing on my stomach and saw 1 baby pop up then 2 and it was searching and 3 popped up. I was happy but I looked to my husband and said 3 babies babe? And he said yah lets try it. I was happy to know but scared too cause I only have 1 and I’m going to be 28 very soon on Oct.18. what could this mean I felt them moving and saw my stomach moving with them inside. I took a test a couple days ago and it was negative.

    • Seeing three babies in a sonogram could reflect how many more children you want to have, or could have if you decided to. Think of it as your raw and honest opinion. A store is a place where you make choices, so perhaps in the dream you are making choice in the sense of thinking to yourself, “I could have three more kids, but that’s the max.” Notice you’re reaction. You’re happy with three more kids. And notice your husband-character’s reaction. Perhaps deep down you know he’s happy with it too.

  51. Me and my fiancè have been dating for almost a year and have been considering getting a place and having a baby, I keep having a dream about being pregnant and floating in water at night and I’m wearing silk robes. I also have another recurring pregnancy dream about being pregnant and just looking out the window in the same silk robes looking at a tree and there’s a rocking chair next to me. Sometimes the window is open and the rocking chair is on my left side and other nights it’s on my right. What does this mean? I’m on the depo shot but I still get my period sometimes but I haven’t got it in over 3 months… The birth control is supposed to stop my period but idk if it works or not. Because I had my period so many times right after I get the shot so idk… I’m confused and really want some answers. It’s a hard time in my life rn. I’m in my last year of high school and engaged.

    • You left this comment just as I left town and unplugged from the internet for a while, so it’s a week later and I’m just getting around to answering you. I can only offer my perspective, but to me it seems that the dreams reflect a struggle with your recent decisions. Left or right, which can mean wrong or right, and you go back and forth. Do you struggle with yourself over whether you are making the right decisions? The silk robes and rocking chair are imagery associated with old age, and here you are a senior in high school, on birth control and engaged. That’s a lot to take on at your age. You’re not giving yourself a chance to experience life naturally, to be free and allow your body time to develop without interference. A tree is something that grows slowly and for a long time, so it can be a great symbol for a lifespan. Are you making yourself old before your time?

      Here’s something for you to look into as an alternative to depo shots. https://www.quora.com/How-accurate-are-period-trackers

      The decisions you make now are momentous. I was a mess at your age and had no one to turn to for good advice, so I feel for you and wish you the best. Write down your dreams!!! Track them closely and sit with them. You’ve taken a great first step here by reaching out to me. It shows that you know deep inside that your dreams are trying to help you.

  52. Hi there, a little bit of backstory….I currently have brain cancer and am on chemotherapy daily until December which will be the completion of my year long treatment. I will still have a long road ahead of me because the cancer I have doesn’t have a cure yet….but I came to terms with this about 7 months ago. I’m not scared anymore…mainly because I’ve been extremely blessed to heal from surgery easily and quickly and not have any real symptoms from chemo except fatigue and worsening memory….

    Last night I dreamt that I was pregnant but doctors were telling me I would have to abort it because because chemo would make it unsafe for both of us…..

    I have 2 kids at home, a son who is 5 and a 3 year old daughter. I’ve always wanted more children but my husband has always said 2 is the perfect number…we did the deed a few days ago when I was ovulating but my husband got a vasectomy right after my daughter was born…and we are about 95% sure that it eliminated any possibility of pregnancy…though he never went back to have that tested….

    But the dream left me feeling totally weird. Any insight would be awesome!!

    Thanks,
    Karla :)

    • Karla, think of being pregnant in the figurative sense, and abortion in terms of “abort the project” or “abort the plan.” The dream seems to suggest there’s something important you’re realizing you’re not going to be able to do while going through chemo. And you know it’s for your own good — you need to focus all your internal resources on healing. That’s why doctors are used to give you the advice. A really positive way of looking at it is you are making plans for after chemo, when you can pick up where you left off. All my best to you. Thank you for reaching out to me.

  53. Thank you so much for your response, I was certainly rattled by the dream but that’s definitely a better way to think about it!! Thanks so much!!

    • Begin with the basic idea of it being too early for something but it’s already started and too late to go back. Does that ring a bell?

  54. Hi I had a dream that my mom told me I was pregnant and then we both went to the doctor and the doctor told me I was pregnant with triplets I looked at my mom and she was all happy telling me I told you so! So I get up and start walking to look for my husband to tell him but then the doctor told me to go to another room to wait for another doctor and as I was sitting down I looked down at my stomach and it was huge so I tried to get up but I couldn’t then I finally got up and I was looking my self in the mirror and I saw my stomach and I felt heart beets in my upper right side of stomach and I put my hand on top of it to feel it and it felt sooo real I started to get anccience so then I woke up and I felt like butterflies in my stomach but then idk I haven’t been regular in years and I’m like kind of spotting right know so idk if I should take a pregnancy or wait he untill I’m done spotting or idk I feel like I am not pregnant but then again I feel like I am. Idk there’s like something telling me I am pregnant but then again I don’t want to get a pregnancy test cuz I’m scared it will be negative and I won’t be pregnant…

    • It’s a good idea to take a pregnancy test, just to be sure. Usually though, dreams about being pregnant are symbolism. Focus on the detail about it being triplets. Can you think of something going on in your life that comes as three? Like, three projects, tasks or ideas?

  55. Hi, I had a dream that my husband walked over to me and touch my stomach by running his finger down then across like a cross and told me that he is sure i am pregnant.
    now 4 1/2 years ago i had my tubes tied so the chances of me being pregnant is slim to none.

    • You know it must be symbolism. Think along the lines of “pregnant with an idea” or something new about yourself is growing with you. Oftentimes, new aspects of the personality gestate deep in the psyche before emerging. You’re subconsciously aware of it and it shows in dreams.

  56. Had a dream about my ex boyfriends current girlfriend thinking that she might be pregnant. He wasn’t in my dream just her and my aunt. I was hiding in a pile of clothing and my aunt knew I was there but I don’t know where we were. Plus in my dream I was supposed to be pregnant but I wasn’t showing yet. My aunt was talking to the current and made her realize that she could possibly be pregnant so the current went along with it and started thinking she could be. Then I woke up. I usually have dreams that come true in real life so I’m just wondering what truth is coming out of this one. At thanksgiving dinner that same aunt was talking to my mom saying that maybe I wanted another child, I didn’t hear the whole conversation though. And nobody knows that my ex and I really was trying to have a baby for almost a year now, even after the breakup. But then he started seeing someone else so we stopped. Maybe that’s what I’m worried about, him having a child with this new girlfriend, when we were trying for so long and I’m not over him yet. HELP!!!

    • I’d bet that the new gf in the dream is a surrogate character. She’s you, but the dream gives you distance to observe the situation and react from your true feelings. The part about hiding in the clothing could symbolize that you were trying to have a baby w your ex and hiding it from your family. It’s also possible that the reference to being pregnant means that you still have part of your ex inside you in the figurative sense. It has nothing to do with actually being pregnant. I find this symbolism to be fairly common to describe situations like yours. I think the bottom line here is you really need to explore your feelings for him and the relationship and make a decision about whether you want to end the relationship. Being in this grey zone with him is going to tear you up inside.

  57. Wow!!! Thank you so much, I have been thinking really hard about him all weekend and it has been tearing me apart. I don’t want to let him go but it might be time.

  58. I had a very Vivid dream my OB telling me that I was 12 weeks pregnant but for some reson i was their to check my blood pressure and she did a sonogram and i was 12 weeks and didnt even know i was pregnant at all and that my blood pressure was very high but in the dream my husband was so excited he was telling everybody

    • The question I’d ask myself if this was my dream (and I was female) is, does the thought of getting pregnant or being surprised by it raise my blood pressure? Is it something that worries or frustrates you? Also, does the idea of you being pregnant excite your husband more than you? Perhaps you have some feelings to sort through.

  59. I’m not pregnant but I have had dreams of every single pregnancy I’ve had. This time I’m having dreams of being pregnant with twins. Mind you I haven’t done anything in months but im dating again and my so and I haven’t consummated the relationship yet. But we are wondering if we do could I wind up pregnant. I’ve had these vivid dreams before my pregnancys.. could I wind up pregnant with twins? They run on both sides of my families and in his as well.

    • My intuition tells me that this dream is more about answering the question “what if?” How do you feel about it when you find out in the dream that you are pregnant with your SO’s baby (or babies)? Your reaction in a dream can determine how your future unfolds. If you feel positive about the idea of having children with your SO, I think it’ll make that possibility more likely. If not, the possibility will be less likely.
