I have NEVER had dreams of my births. I have had many worries and anticipations but never had a actually dreamed of the actual birth ... until a couple weeks ago and then again the other night!
Let me first say that I am NOT a big dreamer (at least not while I am sleeping). My husband and children spend hours at the breakfast table talking about vivid technicolor dreams and I can usually sum up mine in just a few words, IF I can even remember them! But a few weeks ago I woke up with a very vivid memory of my dream. It was something like this:
I was at the house with my children as normal, when labor started ... it was quick and easy and before I knew it I had a precious baby girl lying next to me. But I kept telling my midwife that it was just too early, it was only 23 weeks. She said, "well, the baby is big enough and healthy enough so you must be wrong about your dates." I remember thinking that this was very odd because I am absolutely sure about my dates but oh well. So life when on and we had a baby girl at 23 weeks.When I woke up I remember thinking this was really strange but did not think much of it! I think I did tell Dan but thought it was just funny! So ... then the other day I had almost the same dream, except that my midwife was not here it was just my children and I and again, it was 23 weeks ... I kept saying this over and over. Again I woke up and remember it very vividly!
HHHUUMMM ... so why the dreams and what is up with this twenty-three week thing? So I am officially in my twenty third week and just want to get through as normal. I feel great and have no reason to believe that all is not well BUT I just wonder why this number, what is it that makes it stick out?
