I think I am losing my marbles. I am having nightmares about miscarrying the baby every single night. They are vivid and I remember all the details when I wake-up. They are so real that I find myself feeling depressed. Every time I miscarry in a dream, I don't feel shock or surprise, only sadness and inevitability. I am starting to really believe that these dreams are premonitions, and that I am going to lose this baby (if I haven't already, and just don't know it yet). DH says that I am just stressed, but if that's the case, how long will this go on? It is affecting my mood and outlook on life. I am depressed and grumpy. Why am I my own worst enemy?
I understand you. I keep having dreams of Alyssa coming and saying this baby is coming to Heaven with her because she wants a brother (it's always a boy...) up there...it scares me but I think its just the fact that emotionally I was not ready for another baby so its my subconcience and my mind messing with me.
I have nightmares when I'm pregnant. Both with Erin and with Patrick.
Something that helped me when I had chronic nightmares (when I was in college, so not loss related), is to write it out when you wake up. Keep a dream journal. Get it out of your head and put it on paper.
I also did a lot of meditating before bed. I noticed that if I was more physically relaxed when I went to sleep, my dreams were less stressed.
