I Had a Dream on MLK Day

In light of such a great holiday today celebrating the life of Martin Luther King Jr. a man that made a great difference for all people in our country, I wanted to make a moment to talk about dreams. Although a different kind of dream…

You know those dreams I am talking about… when you are pregnant. Where you wake up wondering what the hell just happened, or you force yourself to wake up in a strange kind of panic because of what was really going on. Yeah, well I had one of those last night.

It seems like my wacked out dreams only come about when I am starting to get very pregnant. In this specific tale, I was pregnant and already had four children, which is clearly a dream because I won’t be doing this again! There was some kind of mob war, or neighborhood gang violence going on, but in a neighborhood I don’t live in… best part?  I lived in an old church?

You can’t make this stuff up!  It was like it belonged in a soap opera!

But why are our dreams way more vivid when we are pregnant?  Mostly because of the increase of hormones we have. An increase in progesterone can help cause these emotional roller-coaster type dreams. But do they really mean anything?

Some experts believe they magnify the excitement of pregnancy, and your expected arrival, but there really is no super secret meaning to the crazy tricks your mind is playing on you. So don’t worry, or think you are alone!

I certainly hope that Martin Luther King Jr. never had any dreams like this!

What kind of crazy dreams have you had during pregnancy?
