Those who know me well, know that I am not a fan of anything scary. I don’t like Halloween. I don’t like scary movies. I spook very easily. I don’t like ghost stories. And FORGET about those creepyscarypossessedevil kid characters. Those twins from The Shining? That image haunts me whenever I’m in a hotel hallway. Rosemary’s Baby? Quite possibly the scariest movie. Ever.
Nothing is worse than spooky kids and babies. At least, that’s what I always thought. And then…
After I somehow made it through the article about the creepy things that happened during pregnancies, I recalled my own hair-raising, chilling experience after my twins past away, which you’ll read about when you click through!
Did anything bizarre happen to you during your pregnancy? I’d love to hear about it!

Night Visitors 2 of 6
"As my pregnancy moved further along, the more activity I noticed. Most nights, I would be startled awake, yelling from what I assume were nightmares, but eventually these nightmares took a more distinct form. I started to wake up during the night and see strange figures pacing around my bed. One night in particular, a long, flowing, white figure, with black, empty, swirling eyes, entered our room from the living room and drift toward my side of the bed. Out of fear, I turned toward my boyfriend, who was fast asleep. As I lay there with my eyes plastered open, wondering what to do next, the figure glided slowly around the bed and toward my boyfriend before vanishing in midair."
The House Comes Alive 3 of 6
"Four months into the pregancy, I decide to start on the spare bedroom, turning it into a nursery. My first concern was that it was always cold in there. I had seals put on the window and heavy blinds, hoping it was just some breeze coming in -- but it made no difference. I think it was around this time that the rest of the house was starting to come alive as well. Doors on the cupboards would be open when I walk in the kitchen, bedroom wardrobes would be open and even clothes off the hangers inside. The TV would turn on when I would be outside."
Night Demon 4 of 6
"Ever since I've been pregnant, I've been having terrible dreams like many other pregnant women. However, I have been waking up every night between 3-4 a.m., often feeling uneasy with a sense that I'm being watched. Yea, I know it sounds silly. (...) I had a dream last night that I was awakened in the middle of the night to a demon (half-human, half-goat), licking my feet. I woke up ... and saw nothing there."
Humanoid Shape 5 of 6
"I was about three months pregnant at the time (...) I had just turned off the light, and my eyes did their usual 'wander randomly at things in my room' which helps me fall to sleep. But this night, my gaze was drawn to the center of the room, about two feet from where I lay, and there I saw (or thought I saw) a patch of air that seemed thicker and darker than the rest. I am quite curious by nature, so I stared at it more intently, and then realized it was in a humanoid shape. I felt myself suddenly overcome by fear, and I moved quickly to flick on my lamp. (...) My partner and I saw the figure countless other times, always standing immobile in the centre of the room, and to my recollection always accompanied by feelings ranging from 'creeped out' to absolutely petrified, though there was never much of a feeling of it during the day."
My Own Spooky Story 6 of 6
The day that I returned home from the hospital after I lost my twins at 17 weeks pregnant, my dog, Darla, was acting very strange. She stood in the center of our living room (while I sat on the couch) and she looked up to the ceiling. There was nothing on the ceiling; she was just staring. After about a minute in, my mother (who had stayed with us through the ordeal) cried and said that Darla was saying goodbye to the babies up in heaven. Our dog continued to stare up at nothing for almost 10 minutes. She has never again done anything like this.
