5 of the Most Common Dreams About Pregnancy in 2021

5 of the Most Common Dreams About Pregnancy in 2021

There is no time when a woman is more deeply connected to the spiritual realm than during pregnancy. It’s for this reason that vivid dreams are a lot more common.

If recent dreams have left you feeling unsettled or with questions about what the future might hold, these common pregnancy dream explanations will help.

Common Pregnancy Dreams Explained

1. Water

Dreaming about water is common during the first trimester of pregnancy as the amniotic sac begins to fill with fluid. These dreams are also very closely linked to emotions and fertility.

Dreaming about drowning could mean that you’re feeling anxious about the prospect of caring for a baby. 

If you have dreams about dirty or murky water, it could be your subconscious telling you to examine how you’re truly feeling about having a baby.

Dreams about a tsunami or turbulent water is usually a metaphor for the emotional roller-coaster ride you will experience during pregnancy.

2. Your Baby’s Gender

Many women find that their intuition is so much stronger during pregnancy that they often accurately predict the sex of their baby in a dream. But this is not always the case. It’s possible that your subconscious is manifesting your desire for a specific gender.

This dream could also be a metaphor for the newfound power you will have in the family as a mother. Or it could be a divine call to develop and apply certain traits on the new journey you’re about to embark on. Females are generally associated with creativity, intuition, and emotions. Males are typically associated with concentration, ambition, and assertiveness.

3. Taking the Baby Out and Putting It Back

Dreams that involve you removing your baby from your uterus and putting it back could indicate you are worried about the health of your child. Basically, you are checking whether the baby is developing normally before placing it back to continue growing.

This particular dream tends to be more common among mothers who previously lost a baby or experienced a difficult pregnancy.

Another potential meaning of this dream is that you’re wondering whether you will love your baby.

4. Birthing an Inanimate Object or Animal

This is a common dream among new mothers who have never experienced pregnancy and birth before. 

Dreams about birthing an inanimate object or animal is your mind’s way of practicing for the real thing. Objects and animals are things you encounter in your everyday life, so your mind replaces the baby with an object or animal because it feels familiar.

This particular dream may also indicate that you’re feeling helpless because you don’t know what to expect from this new chapter.

5. Dreams About Your Partner’s Infidelity

Seeing your partner having an affair with someone else in your dream can be extremely upsetting but don’t be. This dream is usually a manifestation of your subconscious fear of losing your partner because you believe you are no longer appealing to them as a result of all the physical changes your body is going through.

You may also have dreams about having an affair with an ex-lover. No, this is not a sign that you are about to reconcile with your ex. This type of dream indicates that you are feeling trapped in your current role as an expecting mother and wish to reclaim the freedom and enjoyment of your life before your pregnancy.
