I am soon to be 34, and I found out about a month ago or so that I am a pregnant. Ever since I found out, I have been having dreams about my beloved dead grandmother. She passed away in 2006, and in all that time, I probably only had 3 dreams about her. Since I've found out 3 weeks ago that I'm pregnant, I have had about 5 dreams with her in them. Sometimes I realize in my dream that she is dead, and it is very weird for me, and other times, in my dreams, it's like she never died. The only thing is that she never speaks in the dreams. In one in particular, she was sleeping, in others she just smiles and nods, and then the dream is over, as soon as it started. I thought maybe she was trying to tell me that she knows about the pregnancy and is happy that I am FINALLY having a baby. My husband is the more grounded of us, and thinks that it's probably just because I miss her alot, and wish I could tell her I'm pregnant. I'll wake up sad sometimes, when I realize that it was a dream and that she is in fact gone. Other times I just wake up confused. It is making her death seem as though it happened recently, instead of almost 7 years ago. It's messing with my emotions alot! I have heard that pregnancy hormones cause weird dreams sometimes, I guess I'm just curious to hear others' thoughts. So... thoughts anyone?
