Dear Ms Ultrasound,
Last night I had a really strange dream. I am 6 weeks pregnant. So here is the dream...
I am pregnant. Then all of the sudden I am looking for the baby. My husband tells me to go down stairs in the basement. When I get down there I see two babies, twins a boy and a girl. I don't ever remember giving birth to them. They were both perfectly healthy babies which my husband named Aidan and Ruby? Now, Aidan is actually a name that we are thinking of using for a boy. I have no idea where Ruby came from. I see the babies is my other children's baby clothes. (I have a 6-year-old son and a 4-year-old daughter.) Shortly after this I woke up.
Can you tell me if this mean I might have twins? We did plan the pregnancy but we planned it to be our last. Twins do not run in either one of our families.
This does sound like a glimpse into the future. I will be looking forward to a follow up letter from you confirming or denying twins.
What I have found in my research is, dreams where you see the babies and are told their names, have significant meaning. Sometimes the interpretation of the dream and it's content is not exactly what it means. Many times the event must come to pass, before we understand what a dream like this means.
For now I will say, you have a high probability of giving birth to twins. Let me know!
