Dream Interpretation: I'm Knocked Up and He's Knocking on Other Doors

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 (after the jump). This week, a woman asks Lauri:

I caught the father of my unborn child in a unknown bedroom in bed with an unknown woman. I was very upset and kept telling him to get up, but he acted like he wasn’t hearing me. This is the second dream I’ve had with this situation. The first being with a family member.

Lauri: Hopefully you have no other reason to suspect him of getting his jollies elsewhere than these dreams, right?  If there is no other reason to suspect him, then fear not! It is actually quite common for a pregnant gal to dream her mate is cheating… especially once she has lost her girlish figure and feels more like a school bus than anything else.  You are in incubator mode and often, sweet lovin’ is the last thing on your mind! You may be aware that you aren’t having sex with him as much as you used to and deep down you’re worried he is either not finding you attractive anymore or is finding other women more attractive than you.  If this is not the case then you may be feeling “cheated” out of attention from him in other ways.  Is he not showing enough concern over your delicate condition lately?  Is he not appreciating your mood swings, swollen ankles and sharp shooting pains that go from your hamstring all the way up your back? Maybe you don’t feel he is doing enough for you or hearing your complaints, which is why he did nothing in the dream and acted like he didn’t hear you.  Whatever the case, the dream is alerting you that there is some form of disconnect… enough of a disconnect that your dreaming mind had to give you the message more than once. Perhaps you can raise these concerns and clear the air.  A good way to start the conversation is, “You know, I’ve been having the strangest dreams…”
