Dreams during pregnancy
With the onset of pregnancy, women are surprised to discover that dreams have become much brighter and more expressive, and their realism sometimes leads to amazement. In addition, the number of dreams seen overnight increases significantly.
How this is explained and whether it is worth worrying about this, it will be possible to learn from our article.
From the point of view of physicians, the main cause is the growth of the uterus, which, in turn, begins to put pressure on the bladder. Accordingly, the future mother has to get up more often at night, and after all, dreams are remembered well exactly at the moment before awakening.
In addition, an increase in the number of dreams and factors such as:
- Increased progesterone level and other hormones, so that the phase of fast sleep, during which dreams are seen, becomes longer;
- Psychological load, which is conditioned by the more intense inner life of a woman. As a result, for the digesting of daily emotions, the subconscious begins to work more intensively, thus forming spectacular dreams;
- Admission of vitamins of group B, which, according to some information, are able to influence the occurrence of chemicals in the brain, responsible for frequent dreams.
Folk wisdom thinks that the inner world of a person is reflected in dreams, and in fact a pregnant woman carefully keeps not only her spiritual world, but her baby. Therefore, the future child is also involved in the formation of dreams.
In addition, dreams may indicate some problems in the field of psychological or physical health. Accordingly, dreams during pregnancy (interpretation may vary depending on the particular dream book) should be carefully disassembled and analyzed.
This is the opinion of the interpreters of dreams, whether or not to believe – a personal matter for every pregnant woman.
According to numerous studies, pleasant and bad dreams during pregnancy are dreamed of all future mothers without exception. Their dreams often relate directly to the bearing and course of pregnancy, the baby’s future, the process of giving birth.
Also, a woman can see herself running, falling into a trap, observing natural phenomena, preparing or eating food, etc.
Even before a woman learns of her pregnancy, her subconscious can send signals in the form of specific dreams about the birth of a new life. Therefore, the future mother sometimes contemplates a live and clean fish (eats it, or catches it), bakes bread and pies, watches ducks and chicken.
As a rule, a bad dream during pregnancy during the first trimester is rare, and is mainly associated with fear of miscarriage. There is an opinion that if a woman loses a child in a dream, then she is morally not ready for his birth.
