Nightmare during Pregnancy

Hi guys, I want to know are Nightmares common during pregnancy, it seems like every since I have been pregnant I have been have strange nightmares, sometimes nothing to really wake me out of my sleep but strange. For instance I did have a nightmare that someone was trying to kill me, but i ended up killing them while I was pregnant because i was trying to protect my child. Now guys dont think I am a weirdo or something, cause I am not, I dont know if its some shows that I watch during the day that just get in my brain or what, or it may be the shows i watch before I go to sleep. But are nightmares common during pregnancy?

You have very weird dreams while you're pregnant, it is very common.  But I do know those sex dreams are pretty good too (smile.). My first pregnancy, I had a combo of weird and sexual dreams, ha! Guess which one I enjoyed??(don't tell my dh) lol, Congrats on your pregnancy!

I dreamt I was kidnapped last night.  I have also dreamt my dh had an affair, that I was back in university, that my house burned down, etc etc.

I am beginning to think pregnancy is a form of mental illness!

I have tons of bizarre dreams since being pregnant. I am always telling family and friends about them. They are definitely more vivid since being pregnant, but it's common. My doc told me it's the progesterone and all of the things going through your mind. Try to have fun with them (:

Oh yes!  I had a dream last night that my builder tore down our deck and tore out our lawn and left us with a huge pile of dirt.  Then, I dreamt that I walked to today's OB appt (which is about 40 mins. away from where I work).  That would be fun.  They get much weirder for me, too.  Oh well!  I like the idea of trying to have fun with the ones you can.

I would agree that at times it does seem that pregnancy is a form of mental illness, between the crazy dreams, sometimes great sexual ones and terrible nightmares, and the emotional rollercoaster it seems like there should be clown music playing in the background of my life like in the movies!

It's totally bizarre isn't it.  One minute you're on the edge of a cliff hanging on for life and the next you're having the wildest sex romp ever!  The sex one's are great, but some of the nightmares I've had aren't so good.  I guess it's all part of  what happens when your hormones are all over the place.
