Dreams

Hulk and I are getting better from our colds - thanks for all the nice words the other day. Mine was so bad that even a snort of Afrin wasn't helping! And poor little Hulk was sneezing and coughing... I just felt so bad that he can't have anything to take the cold symptoms away. Although, the only thing that seemed to happen was that he was waking up in the night (which he hasn't been doing for a while). He's been back on his 'normal' 8 hours for the past 2 nights - so fingers crossed we are back to normal. Yesterday, I felt well enough to go to the gym, and that made me feel even better.

But. I want to know if any of you other new parents out there are having whacked out dreams? Pretty much, ever since Hulk was born, I'm either dreaming that I'm sleeping hugging him (he doesn't sleep in bed with us - I wake up and I'm hugging a pillow) or I'm dreaming that someone has stolen him. The hugging dream is nice - even though I wake up in a panic that I'm crushing him... but the stolen baby dream? I hate it! Most nights, it's some different variation of someone taking my baby. I finally told Aaron that I was having these crazy dreams - and he said - well, you know I'd never let that happen in real life, right!

I'm so glad you're feeling a little better...and got out to the gym! I haven't had wacky dreams myself...but if I had dreams of hugging Julian, I'd probably wake in a panic too!

I dream that Elizabeth is in bed with me all the time too. I usually end up clutching empty air though.

I never had any type of those dreams, probably because I'm not the norm and my kids always slept with me. I know, I know, I know, but I just couldn't not do it. Glad you all are starting to feel better.

Kids didn't sleep with me and I had those dreams all the time. This post just made me feel normal!

Just recently starting reading your blog. Wanted to say that I've had dreams that I'm holding my babies in bed or that they are sleeping next to me and none of them have ever slept in our bed.

The stolen baby one is scary! I hope you don't continue to have that dream.

For the first couple of months I kept waking up in a panic thinking my babies were in the bed and that I was going to roll over on them. It didn't help that I always seemed to have a cat lying there acting 'baby like'. I also dream about leaving a baby in the carseat on the roof of the car and driving away...which isn't even possible since I have a minivan and I couldn't reach the roof with a car seat if I tried.

I haven't had the dreams but something better... crazy thoughts!

That someone MIGHT steal my baby or I MIGHT drop her, or I MIGHT hug her and suffocate her... And I'm awake and thinking this crap!

Yes! I have the baby in the bed dreams too, and then wake up hugging a pillow or searching frantically through the blankets looking for her. I guess its a new mommy thing?
