Oh man the night terrors of pregnancy! I cant stand it.
I woke up last night sweating, crying, and shaking from a dream that seemed so real. They all seem so real and so scary when your pregnant…Why???
I had this rediculous dream that someone broke in (steven wasnt here [he is out of town right now anyways]) and tried to stab me and I just kept crying ‘dont hurt my baby’ , he hept cuttingmy arms and when he got a crazed look in his eyes he went for my stomach and I woke up screaming. I looked down and noticed that I was gripping my stomach so hard and was sitting up- bent over (that is some deep sleep!).
Dreams never used to bother me till one day…. The night before we found out that Seth died, Steven woke me up and in a panic told me that he just had a dream that the baby died and he dosnt know what he’d do if he lost us. The next day we found out that baby Seth passed away and my blood pressure remained so dangerously high during labor that the nurses and doctors were scared that I was going to have a stroke.
Ever since then, every eerie dream that I have really bothers me. I have had some scary dreams about something happening to the baby that I wont even type out because I just want everything to go right for this baby, even a dream scares me… its sad, I sound like a child but what would you feel like after that happened to you.
I cant stand it, these are not just bad dreams, they are real night terrors. when you wake up sweating, shaking, and screaming, its not just a dream.
