I have very vivid dreams. I always have, but now with the pregnancy and waking ever 90 minutes or so, I'm remembering them more. More than once during the day I think, "Did that happen? Was that a dream?" because my dreams are so vivid and life-like.
But this doesn't mean that they are realistic....
Several weeks ago I had a dream (after a conversation with Jarrod about how you could microwave water for formula or water to warm up breast milk, but you could not put breast milk in the microwave) that I put the baby and a mug of hot water in the microwave. I kept adding 15 seconds to the time, waiting for the water to heat up. The baby was brand new and our house was full of friends and family. After about a minute in the microwave, someone finally said, "Leanne, you can't put the baby in the microwave!" When I went to get the baby out, it turned into burned popcorn. Strange.
Last night I had a dream that I wanted to see the baby, just for a minute. So my solution was to cut the baby out of my side and simply return it when I was done. Cutting the baby out was no problem. I looked at the baby and went to return the baby to my belly, but the incision had closed. I called to my sister so she could help cut me open again and get the baby back inside. We did that, but soon I worried because I couldn't feel the baby moving around anymore. What if cutting the baby out of me at 21 weeks was a bad idea? Equally strange.
