Those Dreams are Hard

Wednesday, January 14, 2009

 

I had a dream this morning that I had a baby. It was the most realistic, longest-lasting dream I've had about having a baby so far. In my dream I was so happy that I finally had my baby. There were some nursing issues, the baby was having trouble with a good latch, but I finally got it to work ok (I think). Also in my dream, I kept leaving the baby behind and would have to keep going back to find him/her. The baby's sex was never made known in my dream and I apparently didn't care. I remember panicking thinking I was going to find my baby dead if I kept forgetting him/her. Weird. But ,oh man, I was sooo happy to have my baby finally.

In my super real feeling baby dreams, I always lose him/her and forget where he/she is. I wonder if it is because we will always feel as though they could disappear at a moments notice if we ever do have them. or if it's just reality seeping in that we never had them for real in the first place.

Strange dream....but one good thing is that you had a baby....In real life, we know that you will be so excited to have that baby....you probably won't let that baby out of your sight. It will be totally opposite of your dream. KWIM

WaterBishop- Could be. I usually feel like those dreams are anxiety-related in regards to having a baby.

Flower- You bet! I definitely won't be letting my real (non-dream) baby out of my sight for a really long time.

Each time I've had a baby=related dream, it's been a peaceful thing that has somehow reassured me that it was eventually going to happen for us. Which, I know, sounds like a cop-out to make you feel better. But it seriously is how it worked for me. Seriously, Carried. You know my history - intimately. You know how unlikely iy was that I would ever have kids. You knew how unlikely it was that Fox would even live. If I can somehow manage to hold on to all 3 of my kids and have then healthy (so far) then I absolutely HAVE to believe that you will make it. You can (and may) give up yourself. I wouldn't blame you, as I've done it myself. But I will never believe that it's not possible for you and G. I have too much faith in you and too much belief that you will be a kickass momma. And feel free to tell me to shut the fuck up if I'm offending rather than soothing. I love you, C. You've been an awesome friend for how many years now? Countless. I can never repay you for what you've brought to my life, sweetie.
