i've had a couple of really bizarre dreams about giving birth. the 1st one was a couple of months back and i dreamt that i was asleep in my bed, then just woke up and felt baby's head between my legs - and hey presto! out he slid, no pain or anything! i caught him and scooped him in my arms and had a cuddle. it was so calm and beautiful, and i woke up crying with emotion. it was such a vivid dream, and i was disappointed to see my bump was still very much just a bump and there was no baby in my arms! then last night i dreamt that i was at home with OH, and i started getting contractions. they were not painful or anything, i just felt pressure and they were uncomfortable. OH wanted me to ring for the MW to come out for our home birth, but i was convinced these contractions weren't the real thing as they were not THAT painful. so i carried on just breathing through them. then i felt this really really weird sensation between my legs and my waters broke all over the floor. so i decided to ring the MW. as i was on the phone to her, i felt baby's head crowning and just flung the phone shouting "i've gotta go i have a baby to catch, he's coming!". so the phone was on the floor and i was telling OH to "get a towel, quick!". and then i gave birth standing up, into my favourite fluffy bath towel. OH helped catch the baby and then i sat down on the floor and OH wrapped me and baby in towels and blankets, and i breastfed the baby until the MW arrived. i do hope when it comes to the "real" thing that i was right in my dreams about the pain not being that bad and that the labour is as short as i dreamt it to be! lol - wishful thinking i suppose! does anyone else have vivid dreams about giving birth??
