Author Topic: Dreams about pregnancy?

Recently I have been dreams about being pregnant. I am on Deprovera shots and my boyfriend and I use condoms every time. I don't know why, but in my dreams I'd be happy about being pregnant. I am not trying to have a baby and am taking all precautions not to have one, although if by some chance I did get pregnant, I would be happy, even though this isn't the time in my life where I want to have one. Anyway, could there be any cause for my dreams? Is it normal, well, do a lot of other sexually active teenage girls experience this? My boyfriend is also VERY paranoid about me getting pregnant. Could I be worrying too, but on a subconscious level?

Well, if you did not have any pregnancy risk, then it's safe to assume your are not pregnant. [Smile]

It's possible that your dreams about pregnancy are linked to the fact that you're worried about getting pregnant. I know, sometimes, when I'm worried about something, I tend to dream about that. And, as far as pregnancy dreams go, you're not alone to experience that either.

But it's worth remembering though that dreams aren't reality, so I don't think it would be a good thing to based yourself on that to determine whether or not you are ready to handle a pregnancy and all that comes with it. So even though your dream pictures you happy about being pregnant, that doesn't have anything to do with what the reality really is. Dreams are some kind of weird things. [Smile]

[Big Grin] I get these too, and dreams about pregnancy can always be scary. When mine meshed up with the nausea and body soreness that mono gave me, I was really worried! But not to fear, every sexually active woman I know (and even some who aren't sexually active) gets dreams about being pregnant. While they're definitely freaky, they have NO indications that you're actually pregnant. So relax, you're safe [Big Grin]

Dream analysts usually say that dreams about pregnancy are really not about actual pregnancy at all, but about new beginnings in life or creating something new.
