Weird pregnancy dreams seem to be as normal a symptom as swollen ankles or morning sickness. In fact, many women report having more vivid dreams when they're expecting, due to an influx of hormones. So, honestly, it's not abnormal for these dreams to surpass the realms of colorful, unusual, or vibrant, and cross into downright strange. Which is why, of course, I asked 10 moms to share their weirdest pregnancy dream. Thankfully, I can report there are an awful lot of creative mama's out there.
Personally, I had a recurring dream when I was pregnant that lasted through all three trimesters, then magically disappeared once the baby was born. I'm assuming that specific dream ceased to exist because, after my son entered the world, sleep (and, as a result, dreaming) were nothing more than a distant memory from the past.
My dream involved my number one squeeze from my adolescent days, Patrick Swayze. We were doing the lift sequence in the lake from Dirty Dancing. I was wearing the transparent white tank top and he was looking all kinds of hot. He would lift me up high above his head (as I balanced gracefully, mind you) reenacting one of my favorite movie scenes. Then he would try to drown me in the lake. That's right, drown me! Weird, right? How dare you, Patrick. I thought what we had was something real.
