How much credit do you give to dreams? Do you think they can ever be prophetic? Visions of the future?
Or to you, are all dreams random musings of the mind that have no basis in reality?

One of my best friends, Stephanie, texted me yesterday... it was a simple text, only 8 words long.

"I had a dream you were pregnant again."


I replied... "Weird." But then of course I couldn't stop thinking about it. I hadn't seen her for a while. Definitely haven't talked about babies with her in a while either. Why would she dream something so... so... RANDOM?

Or is it not random at all?

So then she gives more detail... (I deleted the text so this is from memory). "Yeah, you had to stop breastfeeding [Monster] because you were pregnant right around his birthday"

And who knows when Monster's birthday is?? April 1st. That's in 3 weeks! Guess when I'm due for my period..... in about a week and a half! And guess what? I'm not on birth control pills. And guess what else? We may or may not have "done it" around that certain time frame earlier this month... (sorry, kinda TMI, huh?)


IF her dream is possibly prophetic, that would mean I would be *gulp* already pregnant. Right now. Like, 1 week pregnant at this moment.
IF her dream is completely bogus, I'm still going to be on pins and needles for the next week and a half until my period starts again.

I know if I am, we would be excited. We agreed when I stopped taking my birth control in January that whatever happens, happens. No trying, but no avoiding. But at the same time, I'd be terrified. We don't have the room for another baby right now. Our house is kinda cramped already. And I don't think I'm ready for Monster to be a big brother... he's my baby boy! But then I think back and remember that in my grand master plan for my life (ha ha) I had decided I would get pregnant with baby #2 when baby #1 was between 1 and 1.5 years old. And then do the same thing between baby #2 and baby #3. So apparently if I am... this is what I've always wanted?!?

Um... all I know right now this week and a half had better fly by really really quickly. I just might lose my mind.

And warning to all my friends: think twice before you text me something like this.

How funny! Dreams are something else! I'm not so sure one way or the other. I know in the Bible, they believe dreams to be prephetic. Ya know, 7 ears of corn, 7 years of plenty... Who knows? Maybe it means she's pregnant? Maybe a different friend is pregnant? Maybe no one is pregnant. If you ARE, this would be pretty cool to write in the baby book! <3 Good luck on the 1 1/2 week wait. :/
