We all dream! I am not talking about day-dreaming but dreams that we see when we are asleep.
During my pregnancy, I saw vivid dreams. Not that I didn't have dreams before, but they were few and far in between and most of the time I couldn't even recall it in the morning - only bits and pieces.
Now, dreams were frequent - almost every day I had one. I remembered everything clearly. After waking, I pondered over them. I tried to find connections. I started maintaining a dream journal.
I wrote every dream in minute detail. I found a pattern - most of them were set in my grandparent's home where I have spent the majority of my childhood. Many times some college incident or events that took place more than 5-10 years earlier were superimposed in my grandparent's house.
A lot of childhood memories were intertwined in those dreams. I wondered if it was due to the baby I was carrying? I read that unborn children spend most of the time sleeping and dreaming!
Though, during the 3rd trimester, I am mostly having dreamless sleep (of course I must be dreaming but I do not remember them).
Was my baby's dream pattern compelling me to have dreams?
