Dream of Happy, Healthy Kids

Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
I know from your website that you also analyse pregnancy dreams, which tweaked my interest, as I read Tarot and also analyze dreams.

I initially had one dream when I was about 4 or 5 weeks pregnant where in it I was spotting, which was identical to a dream I had right before I miscarried last time (although in the dream I remember telling myself that spotting didn't always mean anything). When I woke up, I felt really anxious at first, thinking of this as a premonition warning me of something like the last time, but after a couple of days, I felt it was just more of a reflection of my intense anxiety around this pregnancy. I haven't had any spotting, in real life and I have not had a repeat of that dream since.

Then the other day I had a really salient dream where my husband and I had just moved into a new bigger house with our son Max (who exists in real life) and our new baby Lilly. Both kids seemed happy and healthy, and the focus of the dream was on day-to-day domestic decisions like how to decorate their rooms etc. The mood of the dream was happy and optimistic, and I remember feeling in the dream a sense of happy irony - kind of like "see all that worry for nothing, and here she is".

I don't know if these are the kinds of dreams you normally get from people, but I thought I would send them along anyway in case it is of interest.


In my experience, any time you have a dream where you feel intense emotion, good or bad, these are usually dreams that are sending you a message. (Scary nightmares don't count). I'm talking about a dream such as yours where you feel such a wonderful sense of optimistic contentment and happiness. Especially, seeing a girl, with a name! The dream of spotting sounds like it was worry, since in the dream you actually told yourself it was ok.

I will be very interested in following you and your pregnancy. Please let me know when Lilly is born so we can put your story in my book! From my research, a dream where you see the gender and know the name has an extremely high accuracy rate. The powers that be, who showed you a glimpse into your future, were telling you, just what I have told you -- Don't worry unnecessarily! It's a waste of precious life.

I look forward to hearing from you. Let me know the results of Thursdays ultrasound.
