Dreams...Could I Be Pregnant?

QUESTION

Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
I have had 2 dreams about being pregnant in the past week & it is very possible that I am pregnant. But I know I'm not because I went to the Dr on the 26th of this month to get on birth control, I had had unprotected sex the Saturday & Sunday, the day before I went, but I'm not so sure.

Is it possible that the pregnancy didn't show up?

My 1st dream I had seemed so real, it was about a month from now I took a test, and it came out positive. I was taking birth control in this dream, so it could possibly be true?

Today I was sick with fever, and pretty much flu like symptoms, so I came home, took a nap, and what do you know, I have another dream about me being pregnant. I couldn't tell you what this one was about but I was a few months along, but happily, my boyfriend was still right there by my side.

I usually don't have dreams, but when I do, they are like my normal day to day stuff.
and usually the dreams come true.

Sorry to right a whole story to you, but my questions are, could I possibly be pregnant?
(its to early to tell with a hpt)

Could the dreams mean anything and could the blood test not be very accurate?

Thank you for your time, and hope to hear back soon. (:

ANSWER

Hello, First off, if there is any chance you could be pregnant you should not go on the pill. You should wait until enough time has passed for a pregnancy test to determine one way or another if you are pregnant.

Of course it is possible you are pregnant if you had unprotected sex. So your dreams just may be letting you know, so you don't go on the pill.

You must also consider that you may just be thinking about pregnancy after having unprotected sex or because you are going on the pill and this has filtered into your dreams.

I always pay attention to my dreams no matter what. Sometimes they are just dreams of what I was thinking about or talking about the previous day but sometimes they are dreams giving me important information about the future.

For now wait until you find out for sure you are not pregnant before starting your pill.

With regards,
