Dream of Pushing

Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
I am only 6 weeks pregnant and I had a dream to push like I was in labor. When I woke up this morning I was still pushing. I'm worried this could this harm my baby?!


Hello. What you are describing sounds like the same type of motion you would do when you are having a bowel movement. If you are really worried and have this dream repeatedly, I would run it past your doctor. It doesn't sound worrisome to me, especially this early in the pregnancy.
