Sweet Dreams

So I had my first crazy pregnant dream last night. Well, scratch that, it was really the first one I’ve had about my actual baby, I’ve been having ridiculous messed up dreams for a while now, which I’m assuming have something to do with my pregnancy. Most notably was the dream about my husband confiding in me of his discovery that he has chemistry with the hot girl he just hired at work, and that he’s decided since I’m knocked-up and everything, he’d like to stay with me but also start a relationship with her. Clearly, this dream is a result of my growing insecurities about my pregnant and rapidly changing body.

Anyway, so I had my first dream last night in which my baby made an actual appearance. Interestingly enough, he was a boy. Even more interesting is the fact that he was a Lego man. Yea, my baby was totally one of those teeny tiny Lego men with overalls and a red cap. The nice thing about having a Lego man for a baby was that if he got hurt, i.e. if my dog jumped on him like she did in the dream, and his whole head came apart from his body, well you just had to put him right back together again and he was as good as new. Also, he didn’t cry, and he always had a painted smile on his face.

Seriously, what is wrong with me? I have NO earthly clue what dreaming about having a Lego man for a baby could actually mean.

Also in my dream last night, my friend Kate was criticizing how I was holding my baby (Lego man). She kept telling me that I was doing it wrong, and saying passive aggressive things like, “Um, isn’t he a bit young to be on his tummy like that?” I was just like, “I HAVE NO IDEA! I don’t know what to do with babies, I am a terrible mother!”

Pregnant dreams are kind of a hoot aren’t they? Every time I type Lego man I start giggling uncontrollably.

21 weeks! These pictures are getting more difficult to take, week-to-week, simply due to the fact that I am getting fatter and fatter. The ratio of tolerable to horrendous pictures I take in each mini photo shoot just keeps getting smaller. I’m pretty sure I’ll run out of patience soon and start posting the first and only horrible picture I take. You can’t say I didn’t warn you.

Okay I was just totally laughing out loud at my desk! A Lego Man baby, that beats all of my crazy pregnancy dreams! And Kate there yelling at you and your response of I HAVE NO IDEA, hilarious! These dreams are normal and sometimes quite interesting. I am so glad you are sharing your pregnancy stories, I love hearing them. And by the way you look amazing, you are all baby belly! Such a cute pregnant woman (not that it surprises me at all). Keep the photo shoots going, you will love having the pictures later.
