Ok, so my husband and I were sitting at dinner and he told me he didn't really want to talk about it, but he needed to. He told me he had a dream about one of our daughters (we have twin girls who are almost 21 months) that when we put them to bed she was bleeding from her side and mouth. He said he didn't know if she was dead or not, we were calling 911 and he woke up. Crazy thing is I too had a dream, where when we went to get them up in the morning, she was motionless, even after my husband picked her up. Once my husband put her close to him she took a breath.
So needless to say, I'm pretty much freaking out. Why did we both have a dream the SAME night, about the same daughter being in distress/sick/etc....?
Anybody have any thoughts on this?

i had a bad dream one night about my 2nd son just nights before we took him to his grandma's for a weekend sleepover. I drept that he slipped in the tub and that her arthritis acted up and she couldn't get him out of the tub in time to save him. The dream went on to me getting the phone call from my husband that this happened and that he died. Then the funeral and afterwards seeing my oldest son and my youngest daughter walking around sad and not knowing how to tell them what happened. I woke up and told my husband that maybe we shouldn't send them. But he doesn't believe in all of that and assured me they would be fine. That I would have to see for myself to realize the dream wasn't a prediction. So, we sent them. I was terrified but called her and she said they had gotten their bath (even though I gave them one before I sent them) and that they were happily eating supper. I was so relieved. that's strange though that you both had a dream about her the same night. would there be any reason you are both worried about her or working with her on something ex. behavior, motor skills, or anything. I think my situation was b/c he was so enthusiastic, heartwarming, smart and easily atracted attention and my best friend's nephew (who i knew well) died at the age of 7 and they were so much alike I think.

Wow that poor little girl. It's no wander you are so worried. It would be hard to not check on her all the time. But just keep in mind that I had my dream when my son was 4yrs old and he is now 6yrs old. It was the last bad dream I had. It makes you realize how much of a connection you have with your children and just how much you truly love them. It is possible that the repeated ear infections could have affected her speach. I know tubes aren't what you want but if you end up having to geth them, or if her infections go away, she still has time to improve her speach skills. My oldest had speach problems until he was 7 and now he talks just fine. (we didn't do speach therapy because our doctor suggested against it because in some minor cases it can make their speach worse. So all he had was the phonics they learn in school (ex. letter sounds). Good luck on everything!

Hi karen, I appreciate you sharing. We've talked about it as well, and that day she had broken out into a little rash on her side apparently from rubbing against something or touching something and then rubbing her side... So we were both worried about that, even though benedryl took it away. Plus, her and her sister have had ear infections since the beginning of February (Docs say it's lasting effects of the RSV) and she's been rubbing her ears again. We go back to the doctors this Friday, and I'm concerned that we will have to go with tubes if the infection/fluid is still there. Plus her speech hasn't progressed as her sisters does so I'm a little worried and wondering why that is... So yes, there's a bit of worry/concern for her at this time, and so I am putting the dreams to the worry that we have had. But it's still so worrisome and of course can't stop checking on her once she goes to bed at night and is napping!!!
