I don’t know if this is a 3rd Trimester thing, but I’ve been having the WEIRDEST dreams lately. All of them, sad. I even woke Jesse up a few nights ago because I was whimpering in my sleep. Thankfully, he proceeded to wake me up and ask if there was anything wrong? Was I in pain? No to both, but I was glad to be taken out of my nightmare, long enough to take a moment to pray for restful sleep (something my mom always did with me when I had nightmares as a kid).
3 Nights ago: Dead demonic ghost children, beating up living children in my house. I grabbed one of them by the throat and started shaking him. He looked at me all creepy and said, “You have no idea how powerful we are.”
The dream might have kept going, but this was when Jesse woke me up.
2 Nights ago: A Russian guy told me I couldn’t really be Orthodox, because I was American, and then we proceeded to chop the heads off of Zombie children all night long.
Last Night: I found a puppy/kitten mill, where the weird dictator man was giving adorable puppies, bunnies and kittens away to irresponsible children, who were then maiming and killing them. My job the whole dream? To run around saving and hiding them.
So, you can see why I’d prefer to be awake than asleep. I don’t have these weird dreams during the day when I nap, so I’ve actually taking to sleeping less at night and compensating with longer naps!
Today, I actually asked Jesse if there was something “broken” about me. Did anyone else have weird pregnancy dreams? Please, say yes???
Btw, Jesse hasn’t helped things, what with his choice of movies lately, all of which have involved dead or hurt children. To name a few: The Lovely Bones and Shutter Island. This is also why I can’t bear to watch Tim Burton films– who knows how weird things would get in my head!
