Dream of Pushing

QUESTION

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?!

ANSWER

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.
