What Does It Mean When You Dream About Being Pregnant?
Dream interpretations are never an exact science, so it is always possible that the dream interpretation is entirely specific to your own mental state and situation. If you dream about being pregnant, the following are the most common reasons why. This could be due to a desire to have children, actually being pregnant or being stressed out by something in real life. As you read through the list, consider your current feelings and life situation. By considering possible reasons for these dreams in real life, you can figure out which dream interpretation is the right one for you.
You Want a Baby
The most obvious reason for these dreams is that you want to have a baby. It does not matter if you are in a relationship, ready to have kids or even the right age to have children. You may have a conscious or subconscious desire to have children. When this is the case, the experience of being pregnant in the dream will often feel positive and may leave you waking up feeling like have a baby would be a good idea.
Getting Put to the Test
In some pregnancy-related dreams, you do not actually know if you are pregnant or not. In these dreams, an old wives’ tale, cravings or an actual pregnancy test may be used to show if you are pregnant or not. If this is the case, the dream shows that you feel like you are being put to the test in some aspect of your life. You may have a difficult project at work, problems in your relationship or an upcoming exam in school. These challenging times can cause you to feel inadequate or insecure about your abilities. Due to this, you may dream that you are being put to the test and are not in control of the outcome.
You Are Anticipating Something or Feel Stressed Out
When you are under stress, it can affect your entire mental state. This can bring negativity into your life that makes you feel overwhelmed and unhappy. Since a baby would be another commitment, you may dream of having a child because you are unprepared for the future and are going through a rough time. This happens because your mind is trying to tell you that you are doing too much and need to have fewer things to worry about in life. If you dreamed that you are about to give birth, it may be a sign that you fear one of the changes that is about to take place in your life. If stress and tension are the reasons for pregnancy-related dreams, then you will not feel happy or excited by the thought of being pregnant in the dream.
You Want a Change
It is easy to become complacent about your current life. Whether you are tired of your current romantic partner, hate your career or want a new place to live, you may need to make changes. Motherhood is one of the strongest and most profound changes that there is, so this could be symbolic of a life-changing decision that is ahead of you. If you are happy in the dream, it shows that you look forward to changes in your life. When you are not happy in the dream, it shows that you are wary of the transformations that you are expecting.
You Need to Express Yourself
It is normal to have secret goals, desires and ideas that you feel uncomfortable with sharing with other people. When you care about something a lot, you may be afraid of their ridicule or negative attitude. Due to this, your dream may be symbolizing your desire to express yourself. The growth of the child in your womb is a direct connection to the growth of your dreams in real life.
