Nightmare

Last night I had this very vivid dream. It was so real, I had to reassure myself for a long time upon waking (at 3am) that it was only a dream. Or nightmare...

I dreamt that I was as pregnant as I am now (32 weeks tomorrow) AND that I was 11 weeks pregnant with a 4th kid. That's right. I dreamt I had two uteruses. Two.

Twins is one thing, but two babies in the belly at the same time yet born months apart? I'm sure there is some weird animal somewhere on earth who has that capability, but Thank the Lord it isn't us human females. You would be constantly fat and waddling.

What would that birth have looked like? Fortunately, I didn't get that far in my dream.

Strange dream! I had a friend who had two uteruses. Weird as it may sound, the scenario you described could happen to her. One day she and I were watching the news together and saw a story on what you described. One kid was fine, the other was premature. We just stared at each other! The thing with my friend was that she didn't even know she had this condition until she gave birth to her daughter, who was premature because she simply ran out of room to grow inside the small uterus.

Yikes! That is SO scary! And I thought my dream last night was scary... I ended up going into labor at home and had to call an ambulance. The baby was born in the ambulance and they decided to just take us back home and not let me stay in the hospital. HORRIBLE! I am so looking forward to that hospital stay...

Arlene,
I had the same exact dream when I was pregnant with Sean! Two babies, separate gestations, due dates, etc. I don't remember making the connection about two uteruses...

You're 32 weeks already? Man, time flies. I guess it makes sense...Gabriel is 5 months old this week. Hope the acid reflux is calming down and you're getting some sleep. Hugs to the gorgeous girls! - Kel
