Other people’s dreams are never interesting…except when they’re about sex. Each week, our dream analyst Lauri Loewenberg tells one lucky reader what their dirty dream means. Got a dream you want Lauri to analyze? Click here to submit it (18 and older only, please). This week, a reader asks Lauri:
A few weeks ago I dreamed I was pregnant. Then recently I dreamed I gave birth to a baby boy in a car outside of the hospital. I was more concerned about getting the blood and being cleaned instead of the baby but when i held the baby nothing else mattered. It was like I fell in love all over again. I was brought home where I live with my husband and for some reason I found myself going out. Whilst talking to some woman (can’t remember who she was) I remembered I had a baby home all alone. I ran home looking all around the house for the baby. When I found him I started to cry.
Lauri: Let’s start with the obvious. Are you trying to get pregnant or thinking about getting pregnant? If so, then these dreams are mentally preparing you for the task. If not, then these dreams suggest there is something new in your life that needs your time, attention and care in order to grow and reach its potential. Let’s see if we can figure it out.
In your first dream you were pregnant, which means – at the time – something in your life was in the planning or development stage. A few weeks later you dreamed you gave birth, which means that certain something that was being developed actually came through. The fact you just wanted the baby to be cleaned up suggests there may have been a messy start to this new element in your life, but once you accepted the situation, you realized it was pretty dang awesome. But at the end of the dream you are out and realize you left the baby at home alone. This is another clue. It seems you have something new in your life, that may have had a bit of a messy start, and despite the fact you wound up totally digging it, you have managed to let your responsibility towards it slide.
So what does all this remind you of in your real life? Your marriage? Some project? A new friendship? A new job? Whatever it is, your dreaming mind is showing you how important this is to you and that its success depends on you!
