This week in pregnancy land has been mainly punctuated by the oddest of dreams. Not only are they odd, the are unusually vivid and realistic. I consulted Dr Google who reliably informs me it is because my sleep patterns are being disturbed more often due to being more uncomfortable in bed. Basically I am not getting as much deep, dreamless sleep and am instead experiencing more REM sleep than usual. Because I am also waking up more often during the night this means I am remembering the dreams more than usua,l hence the sensation of unusually vivid dreams.
All this dreaming is exhausting work and some days I am waking up feeling like I haven't been asleep! Husband is also experiencing some bizarre dreams mainly involving him missing the birth by being stuck in the hospital and not being able to get to me. So some of my anxiety surrounding bump is rubbing off on him too!
