I have had the worst and wierdest dreams! The best thing for me, and I know this is odd, is to talk to my hubby for about 10 minutes before I go to sleep. He's been cuddling with me, too, for a few minutes. It seems that the reassurance and peacefulness has been a great sleep remedy. I still have them, but not as often.

I'm with you. I found that the best thing for me to do was lay like sideways on a pillow, i know that sounds weird. But it helps me sleep longer than an hour a night and I don't remember my dreams as much. But I still have them pretty much every night. Oddly enough i haven't had any dreams involving baby... they're all involving my hubby

It's normal to have more vivid dreams when you are pregnant. Because you don't sleep as deeply you spend more time during the night durring the dreaming stage of sleep. I had nightmares with my first (loved ones being hurt, killers chasing my down, etc.) but have not had any significant dreams this time around yet. When I was pregnant with my first I was having a horrible nightmare and my daughter kicked me until I woke up. I hope she was not experiencing the scary images I was but I sure was greatful that she pulled me out of sleep.

man, they're still going, every niiiight!! I have strep throat and my doc thinks it's because I'm not sleeping thus my immune system is even lower... I got maybe an hour sleep last night between my baby girl waking up from nightmares and then me waking up from nightmares and me having to wake up for anti-biotics and my throat being sore!

God speaks to us in our sleep (many scriptures back this up - look up "visions of the night"). Pray about the interpretation. There might be something bad that is being allowed in your life. I had a few bad dreams, but once I realized the interpretations, they weren't necessarily "bad". I have also had many good dreams being confirmation that God is protecting us and we are on the right path.
