Double Vision: Vivid Dream of Being Pregnant


I was born 1/3/81. I dreamed I was pregnant with a baby girl, and in the dream, the baby moved, so my mother and my grandmother were all very happy about the baby. I woke up very happy, and I actually felt the baby move even though I am not pregnant in real life! I'm wondering what this dream may mean.

The most common explanation for a woman dreaming about being pregnant is that she wants to become pregnant. When a man dreams of something like this, it may mean he wants to start a family. Following are some other possible interpretations:

There is something or someone in your family that you wish you could avoid. You may have heard the term, hiding behind the pregnancy used when someone uses the fact that they are pregnant to avoid a family gathering or a family event. They may be too ill to travel if they are expecting a baby, and they get out of the situation without any confrontation occurring simply because they're expecting. If that's the case here, it may explain the presence of your mother and grandmother.

It could also mean that there is a relationship that needs healing. Being pregnant in a dream sometimes means that you should look at a different solution for the problems occurring in the relationship.

A long time ago, if people were having marital problems, it would be suggested that they have a baby. Thank goodness that's not a reasonable solution for people to suggest nowadays. While a baby will certainly change things, it won't magically solve everything. When pregnancy dreams are designed to address relationship problems, they mean that you are being urged to look at things in a different way.

Being pregnant in a dream may signify a change in your career. If you are unsatisfied at work or you feel unappreciated by your employer, being pregnant in your dream may signify that you desire a new beginning, a new career, or perhaps a different approach to making a living/ financial well-being.

In fact, being pregnant in a dream might signify that you want a new beginning in terms of your whole approach to life. Perhaps your mother and grandmother, these relatives you love, are going to be there to help you through this transition with love, encouragement and excitement, just like they would if you really were going to have a baby. They'll support your decisions and be happy for you.

Regardless why you dream of being pregnant, a very old interpretation would suggest that something you have wanted for a long time is finally going to appear in your life - most likely love. The message of the dream is to get ready for this monumental change.



What a wonderful experience! Since you aren't pregnant, this dream might have made little sense to you at the time, but it is definitely a sign of great things to come.

Often when we dream, every aspect of the dream pertains to us personally. You'll note that there are four females in this dream: Your grandmother, your mother, yourself and the baby. Four generations of women, all focused on the concept of a new life beginning to emerge. This part of the dream represents the strength you possess as well as the lessons and support you've received from your mother and grandmother.

Your dream is a message from Spirit that wonderful things are coming your way, and that there is a new life cycle growing within you. New beginnings are on the horizon, so this dream is a wake-up call to get ready and start preparing for them. Just as if you were pregnant in real life, there will be much planning to do. You're going to have to make some personal changes.

Whether you are longing for a new career, thinking about relocating, or wishing for a loving life partner, this dream is Spirit's way of telling you to get ready because the seeds you're planting now will bring life-changing results.

Also, the fact that you felt the baby move not only in the dream but after you awakened suggests that things are already starting to stir in regards to your future, and that your dreams are alive and on the verge of manifesting.

If you've been feeling stuck, lost or blocked from attaining your personal goals, this is a very good sign that the barriers will soon dissolve, and you'll begin to receive clear direction on how to make your dreams reality. In the meantime, it would be a great idea to keep a dream journal to record similar night visions that come your way. If you start with the dream you described in your email and write down what you can recall, even more information or memories of this dream might emerge and offer you additional clarity.

There's also the possibility that this dream could be the foretelling of an actual pregnancy (when the time is right), which would also direct you to make important changes in your life. So, all in all, the reason this dream made you so happy is because it is a direct message from Spirit that some wonderful wishes are on the verge of coming true.


Many times in life we hear, "You will always have what you NEED, but not necessarily what you WANT." Your spirit must have needed to experience the feeling of leaving your human body, and the suggestion in the next chapter of Sylvia Brown's book was all it took to get you there.

Even though you hadn't read it yet, your SOUL recognized the title of that chapter as something it had been seeking, and your soul, knowing that you had that reference to read after your experience, got with it and out you went!

While I don't usually recommend her books, Sylvia Brown has a wide reaching and powerful effect on lots of people. A Gemini like you would be able to relate easily to her writing and put it to good use. Synchronicity - you gotta love it!

I like your description of "getting caught." That's exactly what it feels like, isn't it? One minute you're free and hovering above the room, and the next minute, ZAP! back down into your corporeal form you go!

As a little kid, I loved that "feeling of return." With practice, most of the time we can control that event, but sometimes, when our physical ears hear a distracting noise or something else occurs to knock us back into reality, back we go. With practice you will be able to control your return better.

I find it interesting that you were visiting your mother-in-law and not someone in your own genetic family. Evidently, you and your husband got married for reasons that are even deeper than love. His family's interest in "psychic stuff" will nurture your children in such matters and help them to grow into their own abilities.

You'll never have to be concerned that when your daughter visits them, she'll be discouraged from exploring her own psychic life and power. My parents encouraged me to develop my psychic senses in a time when it wasn't nice to even discuss such things in public. Heck, it's STILL not considered a great topic at the dinner table in some families!

Your kids will get to talk about it ALL and ask questions and read and study. This is going to give them such an edge in life! Talk with your husband about how you want to present this to your kiddos, so that you are united in your approach and ready to tell them their experiences are all natural and okay.

A word or two of warning: Geminis often have difficulty staying grounded in REAL LIFE. Don't get so strung out on your ASTRAL life that you neglect what you're doing here on Earth.

You are at the beginning of a long journey to learn where your power really lies. Try to be patient with this process and take your time.
