a lovely dream

I know I already posted once today, but I couldn't let musical monday get in the way of what I really wanted to talk about today: dreams. Last night, I had a dream that our baby was a boy with his daddy's brown hair and vibrant green eyes, and my pale ivory skin. His name, well, I can't tell you that yet, but it fit him perfectly and made me even more confident about our choice. (We have already decided on a boy's name.)
My husband and I are both hoping for a little girl (even though a mommy's boy would be just as great!). To be honest, though, I feel like there's a boy in there. It's still really early and I'm sure I'll probably change my mind a million more times before we find out, but I have this really strong feeling that it's a boy right now. Interesting note- my mom has always told me that she knew I was a girl right away, and never once changed her mind. Hmmm, I wonder if that mommy's intuition runs in the family...
Did you have many dreams about your baby while you were pregnant? Were they accurate at all?


  1. i had a dream that my kid was a boy & was walking at the age of 6 months- lol. very strange.

    and i just read your ob visit post- your nurse was a bitch!

  2. My mom told me today that she had dreams very early on in all of her pregnancies that we were all girls... Sure enough she had 4 girls!

  3. Hi! I found you from the 1/11 BBC board.

    We didn't find out the sex of our first baby. I went back and forth all the time, but I think I really leaned toward thinking it was a girl. One night I dreamed that I gave birth and the doctor proclaimed, "It's a boy!" In my dream I sat up and said, "REALLY?!?!?!"

    Hee hee. Guess my subconscious knew all along. My handsome son just celebrated his first birthday!

  4. I had many crazy dreams while pregnant but only 3 really stood out to me: I had a boy (yes!), he had tons of dark hair (yes!) and I was breastfeeding even hough I didn't think I would be able to (yes!).
