Dreams & Their Meaning During Pregnancy


Most women find that they can recall dreams in greater detail and with more frequency during pregnancy. Also certain themes pop up in their dreams time and again, which makes them wonder about the meaning of their dreams. All of the dreams have sub-conscious meanings related to their process of pregnancy, birth and after the birth of baby. The aggravation of unpleasant or odd dreams during pregnancy is because there is an up-burst of hormones during that phase. Some say that the stress hormone cortisol can also be blamed because it tends to rise during the course of pregnancy and especially during the course of night.

Whatever the reason for weird dreams, we have come up with a few dreams and their interpretation, while researching with pregnant women.

  1. Dreaming about giving birth to a fully grown baby, able to feed and clothe itself signifies the pregnant women’s anxiety about caring for a helpless baby, especially in the first pregnancy.
  2. Driving an awkward and large vehicle like a bus or truck indicates the physical changes in a woman’s body such as expansion of belly that leads her to feel unwieldy and clumsy.
  3. Dreams about construction places imply the pregnant woman’s sense of her enlarging inner space, and also the baby that is being made inside her body.
  4. Discovering that her partner is having an affair signifies the woman’s anxiety of returning back to her attractive self, and the effects of her pregnancy on her appearance.
  5. Dreams about floating in your neighbor’s pool or surfing on a wave can be a reflection of physical sensations, such as feeling the baby moving in amniotic fluid or waiting for your waters to break.
  6. It is very common to dream about birthing something other than a baby, like an animal or fish. Dreams about cuddly, cute animals reflect a new mother’s excitement about welcoming the newborn. On the other hand unsettling dreams represent anxiety about giving birth and the new addition.
  7. Dreaming about the gender of your baby basically signifies that you are thinking about gender issues. Some people want a certain gender and such dreams indicate preferences even when the mum might not be realizing it.
  8. Dreams of birthing or unrealistic interpretations of acts like delivering in a taxi depicts a woman’s concern about losing control or getting worried about things not going normal or according to planned schedule.
  9. Dreams about being trapped in a building or submerged in water signify your concern about losing your freedom after becoming a parent. Despite wanting a child you have a deep concern about having a person who will depend on you for over 18 years.

It is very normal to have worrying dreams during pregnancy because of the physical and mental turmoil you are going through regarding your relationship, body changes, psychological and physical change. While moderate nightmares can be a great sign on coping and adaptation, extreme repetitive nightmares can be a signal that there is something troubling going on. If your dreams are bothering you, talk with your partner or health professional.

Make yourself comfortable

Either sitting or lying down

Begin to concentrate on your breathing

Gently in

And Gently out

As you focus on your breathing, allow your eyes to gently close

Focussing your attention completely on self at this time

Feeling deeply relaxed and at ease


Feel and imagine yourself becoming lighter and lighter within

Beginning to let go of your physicality, connecting to an energy greater than self

Gentle and comforting


Imagine now that your body is being surrounded in a soothing silver cloud of light

Imagine and feel this silver light beginning to swirl gently around all sides of your body

Up above your head

Down below the bottom of your feet


Imagine or feel your body beginning to rock and sway gently in rhythm with the silver swirls

Deeply calming, and deeply balancing


Feel or imagine that there is only your to think about in this silver cloud of energy

Allow your own body’s energy to expand into the silver rays of light

Feeling and imagining all physical burdens and challenges slowly disappearing and fading away in the silver energy

You are deeply calm and rested


Letting go of all physicality

Gently allowing yourself to expand into the energy of love and joy

Beginning to recognise that you are much more than you ever imagined

That you are much more important & significant in your new role as a soon-to-be mum

Imagine now that beyond the silver rays of light that are embracing you, it is now night time

All is still and dark, soft and soothing

You feel yourself embraced by the stillness of the night

In the energy of the goddess moon and all that she illuminates


Imagine or see yourself now looking out in to the night sky

Being bathed in the light of the goddess moon

Observing all the bright twinkling silver stars in the night sky


As you look out in to the night sky

You become aware that one silver star is shining more brightly than the rest


You feel your energy and that of this star beginning to become synchronised

That your energy and that of this special star beat as one

As you watch and concentrate on this silver star light

The star now becomes a shooting star of radiant energy

And the stars energy is travelling toward you


You feel your own body energy reaching out and connecting with the shooting star light

You and the sacred shooting star now meet as one powerful energy force

Merging and becoming as one


You feel the energy of the silver star light deep in your body system

Beating as one in a divine and sacred energy dance


Becoming aware of the sacred light consciousness, your baby, that is now a part of your being, forever interconnected and entwined

You feel and embrace the sacredness of this new being within you


You give thanks and gratitude for this blessed gift

That has been bestowed upon you

Recognising your role as a divine mother

The guardian of a new generation of beings that are being born on mother earth


Feel and allow your connection to your sacred baby within

Feel and imagine your energy field reaching inwards

And connecting with the energy field of your baby

 See and imagine your baby deeply rested and peaceful

Safe and secure

And then, when you are ready

Take a nice deep breath

And gently open your eyes, back in the energy of your body once again
