Dream Interpretation – What Those Vivid Pregnancy Dreams Really Mean

We hear all about the horrible pregnancy symptoms — the morning sickness (hello, all day sickness), the back pain, the heartburn and the so-tired-you-feel-like-breathing-is-too-much that are so common during pregnancy. Another very common symptom of all the hormones pulsing through your body is the newly vivid and way-too-real dreams. It’s a combination of the hormones and the seriously huge life change that is about to become very real. All the excitements, the worries, the fears and what-if’s dance around in your brain in dream form creating some pretty unusual combinations.

It’s a totally real symptom and the dreams that come as a result can be pretty universal, pretty out there and sometimes kinda funny. There is usually a reason for the weirdness — something that you can pull out of the symbols and find what the true meaning behind the seemingly random thoughts.
