Ahhh…the Pregnancy Dreams

Posted on

Pregnancy dreams are vivid.  I clearly remember the ones I had when I was pregnant with Norah.  This time around I’ve had three so far.  The first two were about precipitous and early births.  They were uncomplicated.  Only Scott was present. 

The third.  I was in a strange hospital.  Scott was not there.  My mom and some random former co-workers (in great number) were there.  Dr. Polo Shirt attended.  I woke (in the dream) holding a baby boy with a huge head.  He weighed 6lbs 2oz.  Mom told me my heart had stopped beating while I was pushing.  Dr. Polo Shirt said it was no big deal, he got it going again.  I asked if I had torn.  Nope.  I asked what position I pushed in–then said, “Nevermind, you could have put me in McRoberts and I don’t care as long as my perineum stayed intact.” 

Then baby was passed around to the twelve million former co-workers.  Then a nurse tried to take him for “3 hours of very important procedures.”  Thus ensued a tug-of-war with the baby.  I won.  And I ran out of the hospital and boarded a train.  All the while, I’m making big open mouth faces to encourage the huge-headed baby to latch properly. 

I will say again:  Lord, deliver me from hospital births.  I would be an awful patient.  And I think Scott would tangle with somebody.
