What Do Dreams Really Mean?

Some dreams vanish upon awakening.  Some dreams remain with us throughout the day.  I'm not sure if it was the lamb chop I ate, the broccoli, spinach salad, or puree squash.  Maybe it was the two cups of chamomille tea and the two cookies that I enjoyed at a late hour.  I don't know. 

I dreamt that I was pregnant.  Yep, at least six months.  I felt very fat in the dream, all of it in my stomach.  In the dream itself I knew how old I was and though I didn't feel that old I kept telling myself when this baby is ten years old, I'm going to be very old.  This baby is going to be a lot younger than my oldest granddaughter, etc.  I kept saying to myself will I survive the delivery?  How am I going to keep up with raising this child?  What kind of energy will I even have when this child is only ten years old.  On and on and on my mind raced inside that dream. 

Then I woke up to the sounds of thunder and when I pushed the drapes open spotted lightning in the distance.  

Pure relief swept over me.  I looked over at my PeekaPoo dog who was looking back at me.  Hallelujah!  It was only a dream! 

Unlike my heroine in my story NIGHT FANTASIES, which recently earned some nice reviews, I certainly did want to wake up from that dream, and realize it was only just that. 

Still, I wonder what this type of dream about being pregnant especially for a woman way past child bearing years actually means.

Now I do have to add that while getting x-rays at a local chiropractor's office, there was this huge sign stating to let the technician know whether or not I was pregnant.  In fact it was the doctor who asked me, and I remember telling her if I am, then it's a miracle! 

Perhaps my mind simply stored that away where it would come out later in the form of a dream. 

Who knows. 

All I know is that I'm very very happy that this was only a dream.
