What do Dreams about Being Pregnant Mean?

Pregnancy Dream Meaning

Psychological Meaning:

Pregnancy Dream Meaning. The Pregnancy dream may represent your real fears about falling pregnant. Dreams are also often influenced by our bodies so are aware if there is a condition. However, in most instances dreams about pregnancies represent psychological conditions. For example perhaps you are awaiting something to happen in your life and have worries and fears about this – we speak of ‘a pregnant pause’ sometimes. Or maybe you hope to give birth to a new plan or are at the start of a new relationship .Pregnancy often represents new growth in your life and new opportunities.

Sometimes dreaming of being pregnant may be accompanied by fears and concerns at a time in your life when you have absolutely no desire to have babies. Our dreams do however prepare us for future potential events. In our dreams we rehearse events we are likely to encounter in time. Dreams can teach us all the lessons we need from birth, through life and eventually help us to prepare even for death.

When a woman is pregnant she is also at her most vulnerable. Another psychological interpretation for this dream, particularly if it is accompanied by feelings of worry, is that at this time.

Mystical Pregnancy Dream Meaning:

If you dream about being pregnant and go to a place where cloth is being bleached, you will have pale children. If you dream of being in labor and dream of putting on your partner’s slippers the birth will go well.

Pregnancy Dream Interpretation

An example interpretation from Craig’s columns. Please comment below or ask for an interpretation on out forums.

YOUR QUESTION: I am pregnant and expecting our third child. My dreams are very disturbing. At first I dreamed of walking in the rain then, later in the pregnancy, of floating down a river. Now I have nightmares of being on board an old ship. A storm is raging and my only shipmate is a little lion. Can you interpret this for me?

Cathy H

CRAIG’S INTERPRETATION: Your dreams of water symbolise the womb and the stages of your pregnancy. 40 per cent of women have nightmares during the latter part of their term- even if they have no anxieties about the birth. Dreams of turbulent water occur as the delivery time approaches.

A lion is a symbol of masculinity- so the odds are you will have a bouncing baby boy!

    I dreamed that I was pregnant and that after the birth I had a sonogram and it showed I was pregnant with another two or three babies. All all the babies had colorful hair. What does my dream mean?? I am not pregnant in real life.

      I had a dream that I am pregnant and after few months I get to know I am having twins and having two different delivery dates. To add to it I was in some unknown place where I was forced to drink unfiltered water and I don’t know how but I got to see my one kid face structure through right side of my stomach. He/she has structure like my husband and was smiling and I even asked doctor to click that pic as memory. Suddenly I was left alone there as I could not travel due to pregnancy and my family members which was there with me left. Recently I stopped taking pills and this is third dream of pregnancy after that. Can you explain my dream?

    I’ve been having reoccurring dreams of me being pregnant and the second dream I saw a paper that had my name on it and said I was having twins and another one I was pregnant and getting married. What does that mean?

    I keep having dreams about being pregnant, not giving birth just carrying it inside of me, it’s weird because the boy I like is always in it as well, he the farther in it, I’ve read about the dream meaning on various websites and apparently I have a desire to have a child, which when I think about is true because I love babies but I still don’t understand why I’m having this dream over and over again?

    I have been having strange dreams, last night I had a dream that my breast were enlarged and I had milk coming from them. I have had other dreams giving birth in hospitals where my exhusband was there and so was my current husband and I had a baby boy and both of them were standing over the child looking at it. That was awhile ago but last night I had dreams that my breast were leaking milk

    I dream of being pregnant with twins but on one of the ultra sounds I couldn’t see the baby face. Then I dream that my breast would not stop leaking what does my dream mean?

    I dreamed of my mother being pregnant, who died recently, what does it mean? Her stomach was so big and small kids with her, it’s we 3 siblings as kids, now who is the new one? Does it signifies any messages to us?

      The pregnancy may be a symbol of something coming into your life – an opportunity perhaps from passing your exams.
