Strange dreams (pregnancy sleep)

In this article

Have you found that your dreams have become more bizarre lately? You're not alone. Many women say they dream of sex. talking animals and huge, towering buildings during pregnancy.

Why have my dreams changed?

The vivid dreams you're experiencing may reflect your thoughts and feelings about being pregnant. These feelings probably change on a daily basis. Your emotions may range from anxiety to excitement about the changes in your body and your life. Dreaming is your brain's way of filing away all the stimulating experiences and thoughts from your day.

What's causing my weird dreams?

Usually you'll cycle through levels of sleep during the night. You'll drift from drowsiness to light sleep and on to rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. This is when you’ll experience most of your dreams, before you drift into deep sleep. Then you'll come back up again through REM sleep and light sleep before going down again.

During Pregnancy there's more likely to be something that brings you to the surface and wakes you up, disturbing your sleep cycle. Whether it's leg cramps. needing the loo or just trying to get comfortable (Murray and Hassall 2009). something's likely to keep you from your deepest slumber.

Having your sleep interrupted makes it more likely you’ll remember your dreams. That's why it seems as if you're having more dreams, and because you're remembering them so clearly, they seem particularly vivid.

What can I do about my strange dreams?

Try to enjoy your dreamworld! You could try recording your dreams and what you think they mean in a journal. Share your stories with your partner. Ask him what dad-to-be dreams he's having, too.

Some of your dreams may be more frightening than fascinating. You may have nightmares about the Birth and your baby that can seem very real to you. If you’re worried about your dreams, it may help to talk to your partner or your midwife for reassurance (DH 2009, NHS 2009).
