Pregnant Pregnancy

A new area of your potential or personality developing; a deepening relationship with your potential is producing a new area of experience, talent or facet of your personality. It is still unexpressed but is developing; a new scheme or creative idea ‘hatching’.

This can point to the development of a new approach to life, a new project you are creating, a new outlet of expression, or new faculty.

If you are pregnant when you dream this, don’t be too worried by anxiety dreams about the baby. Virtually all women have them. Only get worried if they persist. A scan can quickly see if you are anxious or intuitive. See: pregnancy and dreams, and your dream baby for a longer description.

 Example: ‘Last week I suddenly started having a recurring dream. In it I woke, walked downstairs, went into the kitchen and looked in the kettle. It was full of little fish.’ Karen LBC.

The fact that Karen goes ‘downstairs’, suggests the lower part of her body, and the shape of the kettle, which is a round container, make it likely this dream is about pregnancy. The little fish also points to her having conceived.

In a woman’s dream: May refer to desire for a child; fear of being pregnant – i.e. in a relationship but not wanting to be pregnant. For a woman being pregnant may depict what is resulting from a relationship with a man she has become deeply involved with. The following example illustrates this.

 Example: I dreamt I was pregnant and was certain the father was a man I feel a lot of love for. However as I was dreaming I realised he had a vasectomy so couldn’t be the father. This caused me to feel great uncertainty and I was questioning who the father could be as I hadn’t been with anyone else. Also I realised the pregnancy lasted 11 months and the baby was due. Angela.

Angela felt a great connection with a man who had told her he could never be her partner, and although good friends, had pulled away from any sexual contact. This caused great confusion in Angela because she had got a lot from the relationship, shown by the pregnancy. The confusion as to who the father was probably depicts her search for a man who could help her ‘give birth’ to the new and positive direction in life that had arisen from the current but platonic relationship.

If pregnant at time of dream: Anxieties regarding pregnancy and birth – Carolyn Winget and Frederic Kapp researched on the dreams of 70 pregnant women. Those women whose dreams included a high percentage of anxiety themes were the ones who delivered their babies in the shortest time – less than ten hours. The conclusion was that by allowing feelings of anxiety in our dreams we are less influenced by anxiety in waking, and we can deal with situations more confidently.

In a man’s dream: A man who cares for his partner and children will often dream about his partners pregnancy – or even dream about himself being pregnant.

 Example: Was in a basement. Brenda/Sonia was giving birth to a Baby, but I was somehow the one who gave birth to it, without a doctor being there. I remember Sonia chewed through the cord. I looked at the baby, it was a lovely boy. Its lower face was covered by a tight caul, but I pulled this off and it began to breathe. It opened its eyes and looked about, fully conscious. Then said something about Jesus, and, “It is gone!”

Here the man gave birth to a new special part of himself, aided by the love he had developed for two women – Brenda and Sonia. A man’s love develops out of his feelings for women in his life, and this was what enabled him to birth a new and special part of his potential.

 Example: I went into the house. My wife screamed due to some trouble of her period. She was pregnant, and the troubles she was having were the traditional signs that she was pregnant and bearing a special child. I felt that the whole pregnancy would be difficult due to these signs of the special child, but the delivery would be easier. I didn’t feel too pleased about her having a baby, but soon adjusted to the idea.

This dream occurred about eight days after he had sex with his wife because he had dreamt a powerful spirit had spoke asking him to help form a body for it.

Pregnant without a man involved: See No Man

Someone else pregnant in dream: An aspect of oneself about to bring forth new characteristics; an intuition about that person. See: Example under girl; cave; third example under penis in body; second example under baby; birth dreams during pregnancy. See also: birth.

If you sum up, what are your dreams saying about being pregnant?

Are you feeling okay now about scary dreams?

Do your dreams give you insight into what is happening with your unborn baby?

I cannot find this interpertation anywhere… I had a dream that my sister in law was alone walking to a clinic to see how her baby was doing. When she arrived the doctor noticed something and said she needed to start the process she was very discret and didn’t want to say much. My sister in law panicked and she asked me can you see the baby’s head and I looked and sure enough I did see it coming out but i didnt tell her cause not even the doctor wanted to cause her that pain. She was not full term yet my sister in law started pushing and the baby came out. The nurse graved the baby which was a still born. It did not cry or move it was hard. The nurse placed the baby right beside my sister in law. I started crying and I couldn’t take the pain and ran out the room outside and the other person that came which lived close by asked me how is she and I couldn’t answer. That person went inside and all I was doing is crying. Some cop gave me a ministry flyer and donation envelope and walked off.

I cannot get over the fact that I seen how the baby boy looked. It seemed so real. Please help me interpret this sad dream. I was awaken by my husband when he heard me crying. But all I was doing was crying. What could this mean?

Hi, I am 4 months pregnant and I am having the strangest dreams. Last night I dreamt that a friend of a friend had a child, she didn’t want the child and the child was going to be put up for adoption. I offered to take the child on full time as my own, this was going okay until I realised one day I couldn’t love the child. My reason for this was because I knew she wasn’t my own child and told my friend that I had a child of my own on the way. Taking care of my own flesh and blood was all I wanted and gave the child back, much to my friends anger as she presumed I was keeping the baby. She was angry and disappointed with me and could not understand what I was trying to tell her, which was pretty logical. The dream was so real and still puzzles me to know if it had a meaning about my own pregnancy. I’d love to know if anyone has any suggestions as to what this was all about. Weird to say the least

    Dear Sarah – It could be that you were practicing in your dream what it is like to be a mother and to take care of a baby and so I wonder if the physical baby that you are carrying is your first child.
    Dreams often stand in place of actual experience. So through dreams we may experiment with new experience or practice things we have not yet done externally. For instance many young women dream in detail of giving birth. This function of what might be called ‘imagination’ is tremendously undervalued, but is a foundation upon which human survival is built.

    Looked at your dream from another point of view it could mean that your dream baby is about a project or a job or something else you are willing to adopt/explore for a while so that you are able to decide whether this is something for you.
    So what do you associate with “the friend of a friend” and with the way she gives form to motherhood and/or the way she combines motherhood with other ways of expressing her loving and caring potential?
    I feel it is worthwhile exploring this, because your dream expresses that there is an inner conflict/misunderstanding between what “the friend of a friend” part in you wants and what the part that is symbolised by your own dream figure feels is the right approach.
    Because the “friend of a friend” part cannot relate to anything which is “logical”, she might express an aspect of you that you are not aware of yet and/or a non-rational approach towards whatever conflict is part of your inner world.
    You could use “Being the friend of a friend” and/or “Talking as her” to learn to understand yourself better and what goes on in your inner world.
    Does that give you a start?
    Anna 🙂

Drempt me, a man ,was pregnant. But it was inside me,it was attached to me like in a pouch in my genital area. I didn’t know it though. I guy showed me and said you’re pregnant. I yelled no no! He saidya its a boy. I said oh my god! .I started yelling for my sister. I saw a bunch of bananas everywhere. I saw both regular sized one and those mini bananas. Does this mean I’m going bananas? Lol or is is about creativity, power,abundance?

I keep dreaming of people around me being pregnant. Every night it’s a different person and these people are not pregnant in real life. This has happened at least 3 nights in a row. What could this mean?
