I have written before about my recurring dream when pregnant with the girls about Matt cheating on me with other women. Looking back, maybe it was some sort of "sign" preparing me to share my husband with other women...not in that way of course, but emotionally having to split my time with him. I have never had a cheating on me dream otherwise and did not have this dream when pregnant with Johnny either.
A dream that I did have with Johnny was early on in the pregnancy and feels extremely telling now. I don't necessarily believe in a lot of horoscope/fortune telling stuff, but there have been some strange coincidences in my life that have turned up in my dreams before they happened (the house next door burning down three days after I dreamt it...freaky).
Early on I woke up from a dream freaked out. I was probably about 7 weeks pregnant, but dreamt that I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. I was so pleased and happy with her. They took her to the nursery and when I went to go see her, she had turned into a little baby bunny rabbit. I was incredibly distraught and looked around for explanations. My doctor and nurse were there, assuring me that everything would be ok, that this doesn't happen often, but they have seen it from time to time. All I cared about was getting my baby girl back. With each push for me to bond with the baby rabbit, I became more and more resistant to the idea of nurturing a rabbit. At one point I turned to my doctor and said, "But I don't want to raise a rabbit, I want a baby" and she responded with a hug and said, "I know."
I made my doctor promise me at 8 weeks that we were not having a rabbit and that there was no chance of that happening. How odd that 4 weeks later we were told that we may not be having the baby we thought we were having. I probably would never remember this dream had it not been for how our circumstances turned out. Maybe my heart was being prepared for Johnny, maybe it was a way to "test" out my response for what was to come.
I have recently had a handful of (non baby related) really strange dreams. Half way through, I tell myself, my real life is much better than this dream, it is time to wake up. It's a good place to be in, even with a little baby "bunny" in my life.
