A day of random thoughts...

Weekends have been a time of little inspiration for me lately. I tend to get into my routine for the week, and then on the weekend it flies out the window. Don't ask me why, as every day should feel the same when all I do is lay on the couch.

So, my random topic of the day is pregnancy dreams! Now, I had been warned that people have weird dreams during pregnancy about their babies coming out as aliens or losing the baby in a public place; you know, things along the lines of being nervous about parenthood. My dreams, however, are more along the lines of the latest movie. They are all extremely complex and long and straight up bizarre! In my dream the night before last I was hauled off to a mental hospital in an ambulance because I was a multiple personality. Evidently I would go off on these rampages and not remember a thing about them. Well, in the part of the dream that I got hauled off, I was arguing with this little kid. He couldn't have been more than 7 and he was teasing me left and right, and taking things from me. I was totally mad at the kid after quite a long time putting up with this, so I yelled at him (he had stolen my crayons), "give me my crayons, dammit!" I was in BIG trouble for cussing, especially in front of a kid, so he told the principle of the school (evidently I worked there) and the principal called 911 on me for being on a rampage.... for saying the d word. Riiight. So I kept telling everyone that I was not on a rampage, that I was just mad at the kid for being a brat. They were all upset at me, and asked me how in the world they were supposed to know what was true with me and what wasn't; and explained how I frequently went off on people, my signature line being "I'm taller than you!!!!" I was hauled off to the mental hospital and put in a room where the floor matched the beds (it had the same flowery comforter fabric that the bedspreads did). The floor was actually like a big waterbed. How in the world was I supposed to walk on that??? Yeah. Random.

My dream last night was like The Matrix meets 12 Monkeys and a few other films I'm sure. I can't even begin to describe it to you other than we were in another dimension (thousands of years in the future) and there was a way to get back... of course you had to listen to a tape of a bunch of 80's songs before you walked through a long tunnel and came out where you then hopped into these pods made of rubber that would swallow you up to protect you from the lightning storm they manufactured specifically to kill people who tried to go back; and the pods would actually "shock" you like a defibrillator and put you back to your original year. But don't answer the phone while you're there because they could find you and bring you back. We ended up revolting and trying to overthrow the government (they did find us and bring us back). Paris Bennett from American Idol was even there and she was like 2,000 years old! Evidently people aged between the worlds, but they had found a way for people to live forever. The only part of the dream that had to do at all with babies was the fact that the only babies people were allowed to keep were boys; the girls they would get rid of somehow. I kept telling them they were stupid because if only boys were allowed to live, then the human race would die off. I had mad skills in the stunt department during this dream, and fought like a warrior. Go figure.

So there are my random thoughts for the day.

Oh Becci.. first off OMG scary about the people knocking on your door.. It is pretty bad when you are afraid to answer the door and the guy who refused the sandwish obviously wanted the money for drugs or something..

The dreams!! Those are a bit much.. I had to laugh reading them though.. what would make you dream of such a thing?? lol

soralis said...

Oh my how scary... I don't think I would be answering the door either. I hope you invest in a peep hole at least.

Dreams, I think you need to get out more, after baby of course! :)

Take care

We live on a farm and get strange knocks on our door at least once a month. One time a couple of years ago I was home alone and someone rang the bell. We have a glass door in front of our wooden door and thank God it was locked. I went to the door and opened the wood door and there stood this gangly dirty looking guy. He said and I quote "Yeah I want to buy some milk" "Milk? I said" "Yeah, from the cows!" he said. At the time we had about nine black angus cows. "Those are beef cows" I said. All of the sudden he had a French accent "Bweef, say are bweef cowas" "Yeah! Beef cows, they're beef cows" "Oh, okay" so he leaves off the porch and after like two seconds of pondering the weird conversation I realize he isn't getting into a car or walking back toward the road. He is headed around the side of our house toward the barn. I ran to my bathroom and looked out the window to see this guy turning on my water hose and standing there showering himself fully dressed in my water hose. He was even scrubbing under his arms against his shirt. Finally when he finished "showering" he walked off into the field behind our house talking to himself the whole time. Too weird!

We also recently had a guy pull up and honk from his truck at the house several times. I looked out the window but there was no way I was going out. I was insulted someone was too lazy to even come to my door and wanted me to come outside by honking.

Your dreams are So funny!

Scary about the people coming to your door!

Pregnancy dreams aren't necessarily pregnancy related. I had some really strange, vivid dreams while pregnant--and when not. :) I find that what I'm thinking about when I go to sleep sometimes affects my dreams.

Hi Becci, Just found your blog and am so glad to hear that all is going well. I have lost 2 twin pregnancies due to IC, first time we didn't know it was IC and 2nd time it was too late. So it's interesting reading about everything your going through, hopefully after some more ivf we'll get pregnant again some day and I'll be doing the same as you! I was on complete bedrest in hospital for about 11 days and went INSANE!!! Can't imagine how you're going for that long- I'm just glad that the internet and blogosphere are there to help the days go by faster!

Your experiences with people knocking on your door at night sound scary. It's sad that we all have to be so careful nowadays, but I think your new policy of not answering the door is wise.

Emmakirst said...

Wow, that would have been really scary, because if they were strung out, who knows what they'd do! I agree I wouldn't be answering the door anytime soon if you aren't expecting anyone.

Those preggie dreams are so strange, I used to have creepy horror movie type dreams. No wonder I couldn't sleep well. Now I don't fall asleep long enough to dream :)

Hey there...I'm not stalking you but is your phone off by chance? I can't seem to get a hold of you. <3

You are very right about the weekends sucking on bedrest. I absolutely hated the weekends. Saturdays and Sundays seemed to drag on forever. I think that's because there's nothing good on TV and you get out of your little routine!

I have been talking with my husband about the second baby and realized that I could be back on bedrest at this time next year if all goes as planned. Good God, what am I thinking?!

I know what you're thinking, amy!! You're thinking "this kid is so cute! Look at that little smirk! Gotta have more..."

I love the pics of him he's so handsome!
