Did anyone else have horrible nightmares when they were pregnant?
For the first few months after Sebastian died I had bad nightmares that eventually went away. I have being doing pretty well emotionally this pregnancy, better than I expected. However the last few weeks I have started to feel a little uneasy, I am going to assume it's because we are a week away from the point Sebastian was delivered and in the month that Sebastian was born/passed away. However that isn't so much the problem. I don't sleep to well, mostly I am really uncomfortable, I accept that as part of pregnancy and am more than happy to deal with it. But the time I am managing to sleep in the last week every night is plagued with horrible nightmares. Sometimes my baby dies in them, other times I start bleeding badly, just stop being pregnant etc. I am frustrated that I seem to handle it so well when I am awake yet can't control it when I am asleep, and quite honestly I am a walking zombie during the day because of it.
Did anyone else have this? When did it go away? I will probably bring it up with one of my Dr's but I know she will just tell me to talk to someone professional about it.
I am sorry I just now came here to visit and saw this post. I just wanted to see how you were doing now? During my pregnancy I had nightmares, but mine were mostly about the birth of Abby. I couldn't let go of all of the nightmares, they just replayed over and over in my head even during the wake hours. I am sorry that you are having these and I hope that it is getting better now for you. You are not alone.
Thank you Mistyx5 for my siggy.
I had nightmares as well when i was pregnant after my son's stillbirth. I think it's just the way your mind deals with all the fears about being pregnant again and it just comes out during sleep. They eventually stopped for me a bit after my second son was born alive, but it was pretty scary waking up from them while i was pregnant. I hope you are doing better and know that your are not alone with the nightmares.
