Pregnancy Dream Interpretation

If you dream that you are pregnant, or hoping to be, this is an example of wish- fulfillment. It may also indicate a fear of getting pregnant or anxieties about pregnancy and giving birth. Pay attention to your reaction to pregnancy dreams. Were you overjoyed, horrified, terrified? If you were terrified, it could be that you are worried you may have got pregnant by accident and your unconscious is urging you to be more careful in waking life. Men who dream of being pregnant may also be giving unconscious expression to their apprehension about becoming a new father.

If you are a woman, a dream about being close to birth may again be wish-fulfillment. Many expectant mothers claim to have had dreams about their unborn baby as it develops in this womb, and this could be an unconscious method of bonding. On the other hand, your unconscious may be presenting you with an unborn baby scenario to give you the opportunity to experience or role-play how you might feel if you were in that situation.

There is, however, an entirely different interpretation for pregnancy dreams that is especially pertinent if you are not pregnant, or hoping to be, or if you are a man. Pregnancy dreams if you are not pregnant suggest a yearning for unconditional love and acceptance. They can also indicate a period of necessary waiting before the completion of a project. A new area of your personality or potential is developing or ‘hatching’; the seeds of a new concept are sprouting.

If you are currently mulling over a new project or idea, pay attention to the details in your dream as they can reflect your feelings of confidence or anxiety about how well your idea is developing. Were you plagued with morning sickness or did you sail through your pregnancy without a setback?

If you felt sick and uncomfortable in your dream, this may reflect your waking anxieties, whereas if you glowed through your pregnancy, this may reflect your growing confidence.

If you dream that someone else is pregnant, this can suggest an aspect of yourself that is ready to develop new skills.

If a woman dreams about a man being pregnant, this suggests her desire for a man to take more responsibility in waking life.

If a man dreams he is pregnant, this suggests the discovery of new talents or potential within.

Pregnancy Dream Interpretation

Universal Landscape: The formulation of a new idea or way of being.

Dreaming Lens: Were you pregnant? Was someone else pregnant? Was it the beginning, middle, or end of pregnancy? Was the pregnancy showing? Was there fear of the labor or birthing process? Was there shame or joy around the pregnancy?

Personal Focus: A pregnancy represents the appearance of something new on the horizon. The distinction with this versus Baby or Birth is that pregnancy represents the inner process that precedes any outward expression of whatever is being created. All ideas, changes in direction, and physical shifts must first be created in the vat of ideas within the mind. Everything that we create in life is first felt as the spark of a new thought. To dream of pregnancy is to be connecting powerfully to this part of the creative process.

Consider that something in you or your life is about to change dramatically. Dreaming of pregnancy is not relegated to women alone—men will often dream of being pregnant. Many men report such dreams when their significant other is literally preparing to give birth and in the dream world, this represents the dramatic change of life that is about to take place as fatherhood descends upon them.

Shame or fear of being exposed as pregnant because it is unwanted connects to uncertainty of how the shift in you may be perceived by others in your life. The closer the pregnancy is to birth, the more imminent the change that is germinating. If the pregnancy is experienced by a character within your dream then consider that it is an element of your personality as represented by that Character Aspect that is undergoing the change that is afoot.

If the term of the pregnancy is clear in the dream, you might want to consider what was going on in your life at the time conception would have been likely. For example, if you were pregnant seven months in your dream, look back seven months in your life for some new element that could be making itself known at this time.

Of course, it is very common for women who are actually with child to dream of their pregnancy. This is a literal and direct expression of the symbolic representation of a new chapter in life, that just so happens to be a new life itself.

Pregnancy Dream Interpretation

A new area of one’s potential or personality developing; a deepening relationship with one’s unconscious is producing a new area of experience—still unexpressed, but developing. In a woman’s dream: may refer to desire for a child.

If pregnant at the time of dream: anxieties, feelings or intu­ition regarding pregnancy and birth. Carolyn Winget and Fre­deric Kapp researched on the dreams of 70 pregnant women.

Those women whose dreams included a high percentage of anxiety themes were the ones who delivered their babies in the shortest time—less than ten hours.

The conclusion was that by allowing feelings of anxiety in our dreams we are less influenced by anxiety in waking, and we can deal with situa­tions more confidently.

Someone else pregnant in dream: an aspect of oneself about to bring forth new characteristics; an intuition about that person.

See example under girl; cave; third example un­der penis in body; second example under baby.

Pregnancy Dream Interpretation

Being pregnant is to be fertile and ready to give birth to new life. In reality, this sense of expectancy comes in many shapes and forms, from being full of new ideas or about to launch a creative project, to simply having joie de vivre and a renewed sense of enthusiasm. You could be waiting for something to take off, or about to realize your full potential. If the pregnancy goes well, then your plans will be successful. If you’re sick, then it suggests feelings of frustration; you want to get your ideas out quickly, but it’s not possible. Bide your time and know that the period of gestation is essential for a positive outcome.
