Weird Dreams

I know crazy dreams can often be a symptom of pregnancy. Perhaps it is the hormones or the stress, but my dreams the past few days have been so vivid that I wake up confused. I find myself thinking, "Wait. Did that happen?"

A few nights ago, I dreamed we actually had triplets rather than twins. Last night, I dreamed we had twin daughters and that my mother lost one of the babies when she was helping me watch them. She couldn't remember which room she had left the baby in, so I was frantically running throughout the house, searching for my child. Strange, right?

The most interesting element to many of these dreams is that they involve two little girls. There is no doubt we are having sons, so why do I never dream about little boys? I mostly blame my dreams at the beginning of this pregnancy. Remember when I said I was psychic? Before we found out we were having twins, I dreamed Nathan and I had twin daughters.  Funny enough, Nathan also had a similar dream the night before the big ultrasound. That's why I jokingly asked, "Are you sure there is only one?" when we went in for our first ultrasound. Nathan also felt like we were having little girls, so imagine our surprise when we discovered we were having two little boys. Obviously, I am terrible at discerning the gender of my children. 

That being said, Nathan and I are ecstatic we're having two little boys. The look on Nathan's face when I asked the ultrasound technician to confirm the undeniable truth of us having two boys was priceless. I felt surprise and then immense happiness and peace. Eliza can remain the only little princess, and I have always wanted baby boys; it's the best of both worlds! 

So, even though I don't actually believe I am psychic, Nathan and I are hesitant to press our luck. What if we had another set of twins? That would be awesome, but it sounds like a whole lot of craziness! I think three children sounds like a perfect number.

  1. Haha. Pregnancy crazy dreams! It seems like they come and go, depending on how much dreaming I'm actually able to do. They are so trixy too. Like you said, sometimes, I wake up and think, "Wait, was that real? Because it sure felt real." It's like our subconscious is taking advantage of our mommy emotions. So not cool. :)

  2. With my twins I had a dream they were actually three too...I think it's the idea that 2, 3 whatever. You are having a lot of babies. This is Amanda, Jack cares but not really.

  4. Three is a great number. It would be so awesome to be done just like that. I hate that my kids have such varied schedules and interests. It's hard to keep up with. Having kids very close in age seems hard in the beginning, but worth it later on. It seems like we have had a baby to plan things around for years and years... and we have.
