A dream that shows you as pregnant or interacting with a baby doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re about to become a parent. Although such a dream could be a premonition, it usually symbolizes something new entering your life. It can also symbolize how you nurture yourself and others.
It’s all about love
Latrice from Minneapolis says: My boyfriend is lying in a casket, while other family members and I are in attendance. I’m pregnant in the dream and I remember feeling really sad. I look around at everyone there, thinking to myself, I don’t know any of these people. What does this mean? Is it good or bad? I think about this dream every day trying to figure it out.
Latrice’s pregnancy symbolizes the growth of her relationship with her boyfriend. However, his death likely signals a dramatic shift about to take place. It may point to a break-up, or it could mean that his old life needs to “die” before they can take their love to the next level. However, the sadness indicates that Latrice has little hope of the relationship continuing to grow – she’s “pregnant” with love, but the relationship may never come to fruition. On another level, it could be that Latrice herself has stopped growing in the relationship and needs to move on. The dream may also be a warning that if she does become pregnant by this man, she’ll likely raise the child on her own.
As for the strangers, they reveal some abilities within Latrice that she’s just now becoming aware of. I suspect she’s stronger and more resourceful than she realizes.
A storm gathers
Karie from Valley Park, Missouri says: I have had the exact dream repeatedly this past week; nothing changes in it. In the dreams, I’m pregnant and telling my boyfriend that I’m pregnant. He’s mad, but I stand there holding onto my very large stomach, almost in a protective manner. I tell him he should be happy about this. Then I wake up.
First off, Karie shouldn’t even consider getting pregnant until she cements a commitment with her boyfriend, because it will undoubtedly backfire. Most likely, though, the dream points to a conflict between Karie and her guy over their relationship goals. She’s happy about their growing bond, while he has reservations about it – and may even feel coerced into it. What’s more, Karie’s protectiveness suggests that there’s a threat to their relationship. The threat could be something between them, or it could be from an outside person or situation. Mainly, if Kari wants the relationship to continue, she needs to have a discussion with her boyfriend about their future together, and see if their goals align.
Birth of a new path
Takota from Omaha, Texas says: I go into labor at school and have to be taken to the hospital (I’m not pregnant in waking life). What could this dream mean?
Because the dream takes place at a school, it means that Takota is on a path of learning that will result in the birth of new abilities and opportunities – and quite soon (she’s in labor!). She indicated that she’s a nineteen-year-old Sagittarius, so exploring her interests in college is an excellent focus for her now, especially since Sag rules higher education. It’s also the sign of the explorer and visionary, so if Takota can envision the bigger picture of what she wants her life to be, and have the courage to pursue her dreams, she’ll give birth to her new path with clarity and purpose.
