If you are planning to get pregnant or are actually pregnant, your pregnancy dreams are usually about the anxieties and expectations of being pregnant. However, if you are not pregnant yourself, it usually symbolize an aspect of your personal life. It can mean a birth of a new direction, idea, and goal.

In this section, we will go through a dictionary that include main ideas that revolve around being pregnant and what they may symbolize for your own personal life experience. Please note that the interpretations here assume that you are not actually being pregnant, if you are, you should take a more literal interpretation of the pregnancy dreams.

Depending on your current life situation, you can have recurring pregnancy dreams or even realistic pregnancy dreams that foretell your anxiety about upcoming events.

Dream About Pregnancy Test
To dream that you are taking a pregnancy test indicates that you are entering a new phase in your life. The new phase can be a new job, relationship, or life style choice. The symbols involved rely heavily on whether the pregnancy is desired or unwanted.

If the pregnancy test is positive in your dreams, remember about how you feel about actually getting pregnant. Was it fear or joy? It can reflect how you feel about the new phase of your life. You feel that you are being put the test as how you feel about this new phase of life.

If the dream has a negative pregnancy test result, the contextual feeling that went along within your dream is also important. If you felt good about it, it means that you have avoided worrisome life changes. However, if you are sad about the pregnancy test’s negative result, it means that you have not fully achieved your goals yet.

Dream About Pregnancy Labor and Birth
Dreaming about labor and giving birth of a new baby can mean different things depending on the context. It typically means that you are anxious about the new phase in life.

Dream About Pregnancy Miscarriage and Abortion
Pregnancy miscarriage dreams are symbolic of loss of opportunity, loss of important person (in context of relationship), loss of trust, precious projects or achievements.

Dream About Pregnancy Ultrasound Scan
Being able to see your growing baby inside a pregnancy dream symbolize that the result of your projects is within grasp. You can see and visualize your achievement.

Dream About Pregnancy of Another Person
To dream someone else is pregnant can symbolize that a change is happening. Or it can symbolize jealousy if you feel jealous in your dream or if you want to become pregnant yourself if you have been unable to.

If you are dreaming about friend being pregnant and you are feeling jealous, you may be feeling inner jealousy of your friend’s achievements.

Dream About Pregnancy and Water Breaking
Do you see your water breaking in your dream? Who is with you? How are you feeling? The context is important, if you remember in your dream and based on how far along with your dream pregnancy. Water breaking can either mean the onset of labor, or it could also mean potential failure due to miscarriage.

Dream About Announcing Pregnancy News
Announcing the big news about being pregnant means that you are ready to tell everyone about your ambitions and dreams. If you are thinking about becoming pregnant, the announcing dreams can be telling that you will become pregnant really soon.

If you are hiding the news about being pregnant inside the dream and keeping it as a secret, you are not ready to let the world know about your ambitions yet. Or if it’s unwanted pregnancy such as teenage pregnancy, it can mean that you are taking more that you can handle and are hiding from your current situation.

Dream About Pregnancy with Ex’s Baby
Having a dream about pregnancy with an EX boyfriend or ex husband can mean that you may still have emotions or feelings for your EX.

If the dream involves infidelity where you have a relationship with the Ex aka cheating, it may mean that the old relationship may come back if you still have contact with the EX. Or that you are not happy with your current life surrounding and you want to relive your past.

Dream About Pregnancy Baby Girl or Boy
If your dream involves the new born baby and their genders, if you are pregnant, it can simply mean that you really either want a boy or girl. If you are not pregnant, below is a quick meaning of baby boy and baby girl dreams.

If you can tell the gender of your newborn baby, it means that you know exactly what you want.

Twins, Triplets, or More: When the pregnancy dream involves more than one baby. This indicates that the new thing coming will be of greater magnitude: double, triple or even quadruple.

Dream About Virgin Pregnancy
Dreaming about Virgin Pregnancies can be biblical in nature if you are a Christian. However, dreaming about pregnant while married or unmarried do not mean much other than you may have new things coming into your life.

Dream About Male Pregnancy
If you dream about your own male pregnancy, it means that you should tone down your sexual exploits.

However, if you dream about another male pregnancy, it may mean disbelief for the accomplishments of another.

Dream About Surrogate Pregnancy
The surrogate pregnancy dream interpretation depends on whether you are the surrogate or you need someone to be your newborn baby’s surrogate mom.

If you are the surrogate, you agree to a destiny that is not yours, because in this dream, that’s what a baby represents. This is a destiny handed to you by your family and your extended family, and you are expected to live it out.

If you request someone else to be the surrogate, it means that you are not able to handle the tasks given to achieve your goals. And you should request the help from your family, extended family, and friends.

Thread: I dreamed I had a baby girl…with my ex.

Last night I had a dream that’s been driving me crazy all day. I don’t remember all of it, but I do remember the most emotional parts.
I have not had many dreams with the type blurred edges this dream had. It was like I was constantly being sucked into the dream, or watching it through a ‘crystal ball’ kind of thing.
When the dream began I was thrown into my grandparents living room. It was brighter, and there was furniture there that they do not own. A long rectangular table was in the center of the room, however, with several thin blankets on top and I was hovering over my baby girl. I remember feeling happy and light as I lifted her head. I was trying to fold the blankets behind her head so it would be softer for her. I could feel her extremely soft skin when I lifted her head, and she was smiling and laughing at me.
Someone, I think it was my mother, walked in the room and said I should take my baby to her father.
So I picked my baby up. I remember being extremely gentle and loving with her, maternal feelings I haven’t experienced yet. I exited the room, and was back in my house in my room. My ex was sitting at my desk, and he turned towards us when I entered. I remember being afraid here, because I knew he did not like me at all and was only here for the baby’s sake.
I handed her to him, and he was just as gentle and caring with the baby as I had been, but I could tell he wanted me to leave. I did, and I remember being extremely sad – because a part of me was still in love with my ex, and wanted him to love me back, even if it was just for the baby.
When I left the room, the dream swapped. I was sitting in a truck with him, driving down a dark road. He wasn’t really speaking to me, but I was trying to speak to him. I couldn’t hear what I was saying, and I didn’t know what I was trying to say…but it made him angry. I get the feeling I was trying to convince him to stay. Then he said, “I’ll be married to Eva very soon…” and his sentence trailed off. I remember feeling extremely hurt here, and as we turned right into a road that was decending into the earth I realized my baby wasn’t there with us. The road had a red glow, and it looked a lot like descending into hell. My ex disappeared after dropping me off at the start of this odd road, and the dream swapped entirely away from my ex and my baby girl.
The rest was unemotional and unimportant, but that segment of the dream has been bothering me. It’s leaving me with a feeling of regret for leaving my ex, and a want for the baby girl that was so much like me, but so much a part of him too. I’m in a new relationship now, and so is he (Eva is his current gf’s name) and I feel guilty for my apparent affair with him even though it never happened.
I feel like it means something, but I’m not sure what.
Any help is appreciated, I would like to eliminate these feelings as they can lead nowhere good.

The 14 Most Common Ex-Boyfriend Dreams — And What They Really Mean

Wondering why your old flame is taking a starring role in your dreams? You’re not alone.

Breakups suck. That’s a universal truth that no one will argue. You’ve been in a relationship, cared about someone, done some heavy-duty emotional investing, then, for whatever reason, it doesn’t work out.

Whether it’s an amicable split or not, it’s never easy. But there comes a day when it gets a little easier, and the next thing you know, you haven’t thought about them in weeks. Until you dream about an ex-boyfriend.

You moved on! You’re over them! Why are they in your dreams? Turns out, that happens to tons of people.

We dream about our exes more often that we dream about our current partners. A study on the dream website Dreamscloud found that of the 1,172 people surveyed, 29 percent admitted to dreaming about exes, while only 25 percent said they dreamed about their current partners.

If you’re dreaming about your ex, you’re definitely not alone. But what do dreams mean when your ex is in them?

1. Hooking up with your ex

According to Lauri Loewenberg, a dream analyst and author of Dream On It, Unlock Your Dreams, Change Your Life, hook-up dreams are most often about our first loves and hearken back to a time when we “first experienced those magical feelings of being desired, butterflies in the stomach, always wanting to be together.”

She explains that these sorts of dreams are more about the feelings than about the ex. Hook-up dreams are common when we are between relationships or in one that is starting to lose the spark. It’s a reminder from our subconscious that we may want to spice things up.

2. Death of an ex

While this may seem like a traumatic kind of dream, all it really means is that you have successfully moved on from the relationship.

“Death is the end of life, but to the dreaming mind it is about the end of life as you now know it; it is about changes, endings and letting go,” Loewenberg says. So don’t worry because it’s actually a good thing!

3. Getting back together with an abusive ex

Leaving an abusive or toxic relationship is never easy, so to dream that you’re back in one can be shocking. Dreams like this indicate that maybe you’ve got some baggage you’re still carrying around. Guilt, anger, resentment — all of these negative emotions can manifest themselves in dreams. Once you do the work to heal the trauma or let go of the negativity, the dreams should disappear.

On the other hand, if you dream you’re in a healthy or loving relationship (or having some healthy or loving sex) with an ex who was toxic or abusive, Loewenberg says it likely means that you’re healing and coming to terms with the relationship.

“Even though it sucked, you have incorporated the lessons from it into your psyche rather than just holding on to the pain and anger.”

4. Your ex ending up in jail

If you dream about an ex-boyfriend being arrested or going to jail, you may think it’s your subconscious punishing them for being so awful. But according to Loewenberg, it could mean that you’ve finally succeeded in locking down your thoughts and aren’t letting your ex creep in and run amok in your brain anymore.

5. Killing your ex

Even though you felt like killing them after a bad break up, dreaming about killing your ex can be quite traumatic. Don’t worry though, because it doesn’t mean you need to call your therapist in the middle of the night to make sure you aren’t having a crisis.

It’s likely just another way for your subconscious mind to tell you that you’ve succeeded in moving on, or that maybe you’re still holding on to a part of the relationship that you need to release.

6. Breaking into your ex’s home

The home represents the psyche. So, to dream that you’re sneaking into your ex’s home is “an expression of the need to penetrate their mindset and understand their thinking and what may have gone wrong” and led to the breakup.

7. Your ex breaking into your home

If you dream that your ex is sneaking into your place, Loewenberg says it means they still occupy a fair bit of real estate in your mind and are affecting your mood and your mindset. This dream is usually an indication that it’s time to do some soul-searching and kick them out of your psyche.

8. Your ex getting you pregnant

You might wake up thinking, “Oh, hell no!” but a pregnant dream just means that something new is growing and developing in your life. If your dream baby is your ex’s, it may mean that whatever the new and exciting thing is, it’s happening because of some aspect of your relationship with them.

9. Fighting with your ex

To dream that you’re fighting with an ex might indicate that you’re starting to fall back into similar behavior patterns with a current partner. Your subconscious might be hinting that it’s time to take a look at what’s going on and evaluate your situation.

10. Seeing your ex

If you dream about just seeing your ex, with nothing else major happening in the dream, you might have met someone who reminds you of them, or maybe you’re just reminiscing about the good ol’ days and the things you actually liked about them.

11. Missing your ex

Dreaming that you miss your ex might mean, well… that you miss your ex! Or it might mean that you miss some specific aspect of your relationship, of their personality, or just being in a relationship altogether.

12. Your ex missing you

If you’re dreaming that your ex is still pining after you, it’s likely that your psyche is all “Boy, bye!” and you’ve officially moved on.

13. Your ex suffering from illness

If your ex is sick in your dream, you are almost certainly not seeing into the future. It just means that maybe you’re still a little down from the breakup.

14. Your ex blowing you off

If your ex is straight up ignoring you or blowing you off, it’s just another nudge from your subconscious that it’s time to move on and let that torch you’ve been carrying go ahead and blow out.

RELATED: The Most Common Relationship Dreams People Have (And What They Mean)

Kristi Pahr is a freelance writer and mother who spends most of her time caring for people other than herself. She is frequently exhausted and compensates with an intense caffeine addiction. Her work has appeared in Real Simple, Well + Good, Men’s Health, Prevention, and many others.

I’m in my local nightclub and there is my childhood sweetheart. He walks over and kisses me and I feel beautiful and special and chosen.

I wake up with a jolt, and turn to see my husband and our 2-month-old baby soundly asleep. My heart races with guilt, as if somehow I’ve been unfaithful. I feel concern at the state of my relationship, as if this is my subconscious telling me I had a child with the wrong man. Is my sleeping self telling me I want to be with my first love, a boy I was with eighteen years ago?

When it happens again, I post about the experience on a Facebook Mom group. Within an hour, I have several responses sharing their relief at my message; they, too, have had those dreams.

Falling in love for the first time is something you never forget. But you know what feels similar? Meeting your baby for the first time.

Intrigued, I reach out to a certified dream analyst, Lauri Loewenberg, who quickly put my concerns to rest. “The ex that is typically dreamed about is the first love,” she says. And there is actually a very good reason for that. “The first love leaves a lasting impression within the psyche as they are the one that first evoked those very powerful and raw emotions of desire, feeling important, walking on air, never wanting to be apart,” she explains. “Falling in love for the first time is something you never forget, and the first love will forever be the face and embodiment of those feelings. But you know what feels similar? Meeting your baby for the first time. It’s like falling in love all over again.”

Suddenly my dreams have turned from my dirty secrets into something beautiful. It’s true: A first love is a transformative, memorable experience that only happens once, with one person. True, also, that for many new moms, it’s a case of love at first sight with their newborn baby.

Natalie Bryant, a dream coach with a Ph.D. in cognitive psychology specializing in sleep and memory, agrees with Loewenberg’s theory. Speaking on the phone, she explains the power of dreams, and how they work: “Any time you have a major transition or shift in your life, a lot of dreams and emotions are going to come with it. It can bring up stuff about your parents … and about your relationships, which is why you’re dreaming about your ex. You’re undergoing a major identity shift. It’s not about you anymore, it’s about this little tiny baby and you’re responsible for this tiny human life.”

The role of dreams at these transitional points in life, Natalie says, is to “assess in the integration of that new experience into your existing knowledge. When we go to sleep, our brains don’t shut off — they’re actually very active as they process information from the day before, taking the information we learned across the day and integrating it into our current knowledge structure.” So it makes sense that an ex, from my younger self, should show up. “You’re dreaming of yourself as a sexual female and prospective mother, a maiden, as opposed to a mother.”

The emotions associated with the dream — feeling excited and beautiful, desire and being desired — are also from a time in my past, one that I’m missing from my present. Currently in the postpartum period, several pounds heavier than normal, with ups and downs in emotions, my marriage has basically been put on hold as my husband and I learn the family dynamics of parenting a newborn baby along with a toddler. Right now, the days of nightclubs and passionate kisses seem like they’re from another lifetime, and they kind of are.

“With every life change there comes grieving, as we grieve what we’ve lost and embrace the new,” Bryant says. But she’s quick to point out my dream isn’t necessarily bad news. In fact, it might be a good thing. “Dreaming is actually healthy, as is journaling dreams, or talking through them.”

Of course hormones have a big part to play too, as all a new mom’s oxytocin is spent on her baby, especially if she’s breastfeeding, meaning there is none left for a partner.

And there’s the stress hormone cortisol, a major component in dream, or REM (rapid eye movement) sleep, says Bryant. “Studies show it’s the uptick in cortisol that allows the brain to get into a a state by which dreaming can occur,” she says. Thanks to the elevated levels of the same hormone after birth, dreams can be especially vivid and bizarre, which might explain some of the more stressful dreams, and the quantity.

As for the recurring dream of an ex, Loewenberg says another trigger is when a relationship turns routine. “It is those emotions of excitement and feeling desired that are at play here and serve as a reminder from the subconscious that it is time to spice up the current relationship,” she says

Bryant explains that when you record and interpret a dream and its meaning, you’re delving into your brain, which is your meaning maker: “You’re saying, ‘Why do I find this memory important and relevant, and what is my brain deriving from this experience?” She notes an experience as intense as giving birth can spark a lot of emotional processing.

Now that I’ve done some work on my dreams, I no longer worry about being unfaithful, or that I married the wrong person. I better understand my present situation, and what my subconscious is trying to say. I decide to listen to it, and arrange a babysitter so I can go on a date with the man I love.

“The things that make you laugh, and especially the things that make you scared, the brain has to take this new information and connect it to prior memories that you have,” Dr. Pelayo explains. “This connecting of old memories with new memories is done offline in the dreaming world.”

No matter what you dream about, it’s ultimately up to you how you interpret it.

A little recap: “Babies can represent the new: new endeavors, new relationships,” Dr. Barrett says. “Or, they can represent the vulnerable or immature part of the dreamer.” For another individual, pregnancy or babies in a dream could be a clue to something as straightforward as a desire for a child.

“Only the dreamer’s own associations can tell exactly what the dream symbol means in a particular case,” she says. So ask yourself, do I wish for this or fear this? What in my waking life feels like the baby in the dream? This can help you dissect what it might mean (if it means anything at all).

Started As a Baby

Motherfuckers out there be talking about started from the bottom,
Starting with nothing, ha!
Y’all don’t know shit!
That don’t compare to the struggle I had to go through
Y’all better recognize, motherfuckers!
Cause me…

I started as a baby
A tiny little baby
Now look at me, uh
Now look at me

When everybody look at me, yo, they can tell that I’m a grown-up
Six-foot-one, facial hair, with the coffee cup
People saying ‘whassup’ when they see me on the block
Cause they know I’m an adult and I know how to talk
But back in the day I couldn’t talk, I was a baby
I didn’t even know what English was, it sounds crazy
I couldn’t even walk, my baby legs were way too weak
Look at me now communicating on my two feet
And eating solid foods whenever the fuck I want
Celery, broccoli, spaghetti, smokey cheese and croissant
But y’all, when I was a newborn child it wasn’t this way
Breast milk was the only food my stomach could take
Because I didn’t have teeth, motherfucker, I couldn’t chew
Bitch, look at me now, I’m fucking biting into fresh fruit
Saying ‘Fuck you’ to all the haters talking shit
Who say I was never a baby, I was born like this
Bitch, just because you see me sitting on a toilet
Don’t mean I don’t know what it’s like to feel a diaper with a load of shit

I drive to work every day to go make some dollar bills
The reason I can do this is cause I have basic motor skills
Which I developed over time, but, yo, back in the day
This shit was way too complicated for my tiny baby brain
No comprehension of the concept of motorized transportation
Didn’t even understand the concept of changing locations
In the car seat, the stroller, yo, I didn’t give a fuck
Just as long as when I cried I had a titty to suck
But I come a long way, today I drive my own car
As a baby I never thought I would make it this far
Contemplating the future was literally impossible,
A dearth of empirical knowledge can be a huge obstacle
But being born a baby didn’t stop me, I am not a quitter
I kept being alive, so over time, my body got bigger
Life experience and education helped develop my brain
Look at me now, I’m a grown-up, things done changed!

Being a baby wasn’t easy
But it made me who I am
If you were never a baby
Well, you wouldn’t understand
It sounds crazy, but before being a baby
I was split in half (two parts)
Half in my mom, the other half
Was in my dad’s nutsack (means his testicles)

That’s right, bitch, I even used to be microscopic
Shot out of my dad’s dick into mom’s uterus
Nine months later I was sucking on my mom’s tit
Thirty years later I recorded this fucking hit!

Oh, yeah… I’m getting paper!
Shit, when I was a baby, I didn’t even know what paper was
I didn’t even know that you could exchange it for goods and services
I didn’t even know what goods and services were
What about you, MC Vagina?
(When I was a baby, I didn’t even know that owning a lot of guns
Was the best thing you could do for safety
When I was a baby, I was sooo stupid!)

How I Started a Business and Had a Baby in One Year Without Going (Completely) Insane

May 11, 2018 8 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

I’ve only been a mom for about nine months now, but I can already see how being a parent requires grit, perseverance and a lot of love. Those qualities are surprisingly similar to the ones you need in order to be an entrepreneur. I had to learn how to cultivate enough for both, when I founded a company and had a baby all in the same year.

This wasn’t exactly the time line I had planned. I found out I was pregnant in January 2017, three months after I co-founded and launched Ollie — my homemade dog-food and delivery company. Ironically, the pregnancy disrupted my life in the same way I’d hoped Ollie would disrupt the pet food industry.

When I envisioned what life would be like that first year post-launch, I imagined long days and nights –the highest of highs when things were going well and the lowest of lows when they weren’t. In many ways, these were the same feelings I envisioned back then about the eventual arrival of a baby. I was excited to spend that first year of our business’s launch in the same frame of mind.

But then I found out I was having an actual baby. True, I’d lways wanted to have kids; but I had planned to get Ollie to a much more mature stage before that happened. So, news of my pregnancy raised concerns about not being able to invest as much time and energy as I’d planned into my company.

Thankfully, being pregnant wasn’t as difficult as I’d anticipated, though I worried those obvious physical changes would have repercussions for my company. When we were raising money for our Series A round, I purposely wore baggy clothes to meetings because I worried investors would take issue with a pregnant co-founder. Luckily, that was not the case. But, with only 17 percent of startups led by women attracting VC funding, how could I be sure?

Fast-forward to August 2017, when I had my daughter, Sasha — less than a year after I’d launched Ollie. Suddenly, I had to meet the emotional and physical demands of a baby, along with the financial pressure of owning a company. Wow.

My first collision with the reality of being a mom came when Sasha decided to arrive three weeks early.

Postpartum highs and lows

Post-birth, I was on leave, but I got back online almost immediately. Ironically, the same day I gave birth was the day our Series A funding closed. Getting the funding was great, but it also meant stepping on the gas for growth; a lot of initiatives that had been on hold also got the green light. Given how young of a startup Ollie was, I felt the need to continue working and keep tabs on everything throughout my maternity leave.

For the first three weeks, I felt that I had it all: I had a rhythm with the baby and was in love with this tiny bundle that was in my life. I thought I had conquered the challenge of multitasking by taking phone calls and doing voice-translated emails even as I breast-fed. (My team only found out later why there were so many typos!)

But then things crashed. The adrenaline that had kept me going those first few weeks ran out, and my denial that this baby was not going to change my life wore off. My husband, Weston Gaddy, was and is supportive, but he’s an entrepreneur, too.

Then there was the sleep issue. Sasha had slept all day for the first few weeks; but now, suddenly, she woke up and was much more demanding. My exhaustion and postpartum emotions came tumbling out. On top of that, the nanny I had hired was not working out and I knew I needed to find someone new. The idea that I could “do it all” — take care of both “babies,” my company and my child — all at once was revealed as a total fallacy.

6 things I learned that helped me survive (and thrive)

1. Hiring the right child-care provider is the most important decision you’ll make. But finding child care was harder than I’d thought. Everyone I interviewed either had a “their way or the highway” attitude or wanted to follow my lead, which was terrifying, given that for the first time in my life, I had no idea what I was doing.

I realized that finding the right child care was the most important hire I could make not only for myself, but also for my company. Without someone I could trust, I could never fully focus on my job. Child care is the work that makes all work possible.

2. Take a time-out. Once I found the right person, I forced myself to take a time-out and get some much-needed rest. I put Ollie (slightly) aside for a few weeks and allowed my team to run more independently. It was only then, after a couple of weeks and once I had a clear head, that I had the confidence to better manage life and business.

Nothing fell apart during that time at work, and it was healthy for me to recognize that — and good for my team to have that experience of stepping up. Because I was forced to let things go, I learned to become a better manager, and my teams learned how to run more efficiently, since we’re better able to divide and conquer.

3. Plan for contingencies. During my self-imposed time-out, I realized that checking off everything on ambitious to-do lists each day was unrealistic. Instead, to stay focused, I needed to plan for contingencies and make realistic goals.

I had to plan for the unexpected — like our sudden shortage of beef (for our most popular recipe) and severe weather delays that impacted shipment time lines and product freshness. That left me better equipped to handle what came at me. We now have a larger backup inventory and have opened a third fulfillment center to expedite shipping times.

4. Be adaptable. Managing startup life and mom life concurrently means a new challenge each week. Just when I thought I’d figured one thing out, I had to confront something completely new. With Ollie’s rapid growth — we increased head count by 54 percent last quarter and are now delivering five million meals — my co-founders and I had to rethink how we could function more efficiently and effectively.

It’s been challenging figuring out how to keep our initial culture and ensure that internal communication flows properly. We now have weekly open forum meetings and have added team off-sites on top of our monthly company workouts. Adaptability — to employees, the marketplace, customers — is key to growing a business (and a family!).

5. Network with your baby. Mixing business and babies has also helped my company grow. From local playgroups to music classes, I’ve made new connections I might not have. Bonding over our common experiences has helped me lean on other moms for parenting advice (and stay sane); it’s also helped with business initiatives. Most recently, one of my mom friends ended up being a sponsor for our largest event, and one of our newest employees is a parent I met at a playgroup.

6. Accept the fact that there is no work-life balance. I’ve learned to embrace the fact that there is no family/work separation. Just like being a parent isn’t a 9-to-6 job, neither is being an entrepreneur. While I’m on a 5 a.m. train to visit our fulfillment center in Pennsylvania, I may also be pumping breast milk and responding to emails.

But, as much as possible, I carve out chunks of time dedicated to one or the other. For example, the minute I’m home after work, I purposely leave my phone in my purse and focus the first hour entirely on Sasha. That doesn’t mean I’m not 100 percent focused on my daughter after that initial hour, but it does mean accepting that my new reality is jumping on last-minute work calls while I’m simultaneously changing a diaper.

(Let’s just hope it’s not a messy one.)

Everyone says I had a baby, I started to go along with it

My neighbor brought over some baby shoes the other day. They were pink and had glitter on the toes and sequined flowers on the sides. We cooed over them for a few minutes and I told her how much I appreciated the gift. After she left, I threw them in my bedroom closet with all the other baby junk I’ve been given over the past six months.

Six months ago, everyone in town started to ask about “my baby.” I do not have a baby, I have never given birth or even been pregnant. I thought that I was being mistaken for someone else; I’m not particularly unique looking. Maybe some other short, dark haired and hazel-eyed girl gave birth recently. But I am shy by nature and southern by birth so I was too polite to say “you’re wrong, you have the wrong person, I don’t have a baby.” I said things like “um, oh, ok?” Mostly because it must have been a case of mistaken identity.

People brought over baby clothes, a crib, a swing that plugs into the wall and jiggles, toys and shoes and diapers. A very weird situation to be in, for sure. But then, to put it plainly, things got weirder. I was in the grocery store, and the manager, a friendly older man, came up to me and asked about “my sweet little girl.” He asked if she liked the different formula he had suggested and if I wanted more. I just smiled. When I got home, I found formula in my grocery bags and an almost empty can in my cabinet. I don’t even remember putting it in my cart.

The thing is, everyone has been so nice to me, and the situation is just so odd that I started to go along with it. “How’s the little darling today?” A neighbor would ask when I went to get the mail. “Oh, she’s wonderful! Sleeping through the night,” I’d answer.

Then a young woman that got coffee at the same place as me asked about a play date with her 9 month old and my then “5 month old.” I sort of blew it off. Next time I saw her though, she talked about setting up another play date and how much fun our two “darlings” had. She showed me a picture on her phone. “Aren’t they just precious in this picture? Your little girl has the most beautiful blue eyes! Her dress really makes them pop. I’ll text this to you.” I looked at the picture and saw a chubby baby in a red shirt and blue shorts. It had dark hair and dark eyes. It was the only baby in the picture.

I went home and opened my bedroom closet full of baby junk. I pulled out teddy bears and an unopened box with a changing table in it. I pulled out a shopping bag with new baby clothes. I dumped it out on my bed and looked through them. I found a light blue dress.

A few weeks ago, I decided to call my mom.

“Hello?” She answered.

“Mom? It’s me,” I said.

“Oh, Pearl, hi.”

“How are you?” I asked. We don’t talk often.

“I’m good, we’re all good out here.” She paused then asked “and how are you two doing?”

“Us…two?” I asked hesitantly.

“Now don’t act like that, I know I haven’t been in touch much but I do care about you and my grandbaby,” she said sourly.

“I know mom. Oh, she’s crying, I gotta go,” I lied.

“Give Holly my love,” she said and then hung up before I did.

The funny thing is, Breakfast at Tiffany’s has been my favorite book since I was kid. I’d always thought Holly would be a great name for a kid I would eventually have.

I went into my room to put my phone down after my short conversation with my mom. The changing table and the crib were neatly set up by the window. I didn’t do that. I’m sure I didn’t. I walked over to the crib and looked inside. Nothing was there. I walked over to the changing table, then took a step back before I bumped my shin against one of the legs. Because I remembered that I had done that before. I looked down and saw a bruise on my shin. I know I hit it against the changing table, but I also know that they weren’t in here before. I know it.

“How’s Holly today?” My neighbor across the street asked. We were both out grabbing our mail.

“She’s good, happy as ever,” I said.

“I heard her screaming up a storm when you came home last night, I’d be surprised if you were able to get her to bed at all!”

“Once she lays down it usually doesn’t take too long,” I replied.

I went inside and looked through my mail. A bunch of junk, a few red envelopes. I put everything down on the kitchen counter and opened a cabinet to get out a cup. I heard some noises coming from my room. I paused and listened. I didn’t hear anything for a minute so I grabbed the cup and got some water from the sink. I heard something over the sound of the tap. Holly must be awake.

I went into my room and looked down in the crib. Holly’s stuffed elephant was in the crib. I reached down and picked it up. It was cute, no wonder someone got it for Holly. I put the elephant back down in the crib and brought the cup to my mouth to take a sip. I realized I was holding a baby bottle. Mom brain, I thought. Where did I put my cup down? But then I saw I was holding my cup. And I’m not a mom, what the fuck was I just thinking? I looked back over at the crib.

Why do I still have this crap in my room? I kicked the crib. Then I kicked it again, then again until the wood began to splinter. I pushed the changing table over on its side. I opened my closet and shoved in the pieces of the crib and any other baby related item I could find. I slammed the door closed. I can’t keep this charade up, I decided. I can’t go along with this nonsense anymore.

I went to get coffee this morning. I was so tired. I felt like I hadn’t slept all night. The barista smiled at me. “Your kid keep you up?” She asked.

“No.” I said firmly. Her smile wavered.

I sat down at a table to drink my coffee. Some woman walked up to me. She asked how I was doing, how my daughter was doing.

“I’m fine,” I answered, and left it at that.

She sat down at the table and in a hushed and concerned voice, she asked me if I was experiencing any depression. She said that new mothers often feel like this.

“I’m not a new mother,” I said.

A man came in and walked quickly up to the table. He bent down and whispered something in my ear. It didn’t register at first.

“What?” I asked.

“You left your kid in her car seat in your car,” he said again.

I jumped up and ran outside. I unlocked my car and opened the back seat. How could I be so stupid? How fucked up am I to leave my kid in the car? But nothing was there. No kid, no car seat. I drove home.

I sat on my bed and looked through the pictures on my phone. I looked at the picture of the chubby kid in the red shirt. I stared at it. Where is she? Where is Holly? There’s only one kid in this picture but everyone else says that there are two. Chubs and my little Holly, bright blue eyes, blue dress. She does look so pretty in that blue dress. I do have a bit more to write, but Holly just started to cry. I need to go check on her.

Baby girl dream meaning

A baby girl in a dream is a positive symbol.

Even those that don’t have children have dreams about babies. Maybe you had a dream of a missing baby girl, giving birth to a baby girl or you were holding a baby girl. To see a baby girl in a dream can indicate happiness and also a female in waking life.Â

Who am I?

Hello, and welcome to my site, my name is Flo and I am going to help you decode your dream of the baby girl. Most of my dreams come true and for the last twenty years I have been studying ancient dream books, these books have helped me write my amazing meanings. For this dream meaning, you will find my sources at the end of the article, a baby girl is a wonderful dream to have. In fact, I have just woken up and had this dream which encouraged me to write about it!Â

Is this dream good or bad?

This dream is positive. If you are female and you dream of a baby girl this is connected to either 1) your own inner child or 2) that you want a baby girl. The dream is also connected to the fact that you need to find peace in life. If you are male the dream of a baby girl can indicate that life may change for the better. This dream symbolism is your subconscious mind or a premonition into the future, if you are looking to have a baby you might just have a baby girl. In addition, I have taken some time reading other dream meanings online and they mostly state this is a negative dream. I must say, I do wholeheartedly disagree that this is a negative dream.

In my opinion, seeing a baby girl in a dream is connected to an empathic surround in which you have allowed yourself to feel vulnerable. Previously, you have been hiding away in life. This is all about a lack of control and seeing a baby girl in your arms. Taking care of a baby girl in a dream is connected to something making you feel vulnerable in life.

Serenity: dreaming of a little baby girl is associated with our own comfort, relaxation and peace. Such a dream can create a calmness around ourselves. The dream might leave you feeling very peaceful and relaxed.

Vulnerability: The baby girl is a symbol of emotional expression and also vulnerability. Remember in life it is what is projected on the outside. Therefore, my interpretive response to this dream is that you feel regretful about something out of your control. So the dream seems to suggest that you need to let go of this vulnerability and there will be a turning point in the future. In life there is always uncertainties. Our defense in dreams is limited, in comparison to the defenses we show in waking life. Yes, dreaming is a vulnerable state and relinquishes a loss of control. The dream content sometimes in this situation does not relate to the literal meaning.

Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud on baby girl dreams: Turning this dream around, it offers the option of development and the dream can be a symbolic part of your current state of mind. In approaching this dream from a Jungian perspective, the baby girl can represent these unconscious communications in life. This dream can be used as a tool in helping you change your perception on how something in life is being controlled in waking life. The notion is that you must ask the question of how this dream can enhance you and how you feel about yourself, sharing your feelings with others and the balancing you need when you do have a loss of control.Â

You are feeling attuned to being asked questions about things you do not want to give away. This is unavoidable I am afraid. In order to progress in your life sometimes you have to make decisions.  This will help bridge the gap between your goals and also your successes. Maybe you have been questioning things recently. It makes sense that focusing on areas of change in your life will help your overall performance in life. The Freudian unconscious theory involves deep derivatives of aggressive and sexual conflicts. He believed a dream such as holding a baby girl brings awareness of the self. The dream in his view is always about the self and self-experience. Playing the victim in life will not help you long-term.

Spiritual meaning of a baby girl dream: Now let’s move onto the spiritual meaning of this dream. I have woken up this morning and had this dream where I was holding a little plump baby girl which has influenced me into writing this dream meaning. As I actually would like a baby girl in real life – it is probably my subconscious mind telling me to hurry up and get pregnant. I will take a pregnancy test and report back later. Am I am having a baby? I have looked at the spiritual side of this dream by reviewing ancient literature in private subscription libraries in England. This has helped me unravel your dream meaning and I am here for you.

Defense: So, without delay let’s decode the dream from a spiritual context. Spiritually, a baby girl is connected to defenses. The defense that you put up with you in life. If you see your own baby girl in a dream and you are holding her it indicates that you are feeling some degree of emotional distress in life. Try to think about your own hidden talents in life. If you are currently pregnant and you dream of a baby girl it may just be your fears of birth.

To not know the baby girl in your dream indicates that you are feeling guilty in life. Try to rely on your own inner power of “doing the right thing in life.â€\x9D To see yourself carrying a baby girl in the dream indicates that you need to care more about those that love you.

It could be that you need to feel more connected to your own children or somebody else on the living plane. You will feel the bond between you and somebody else strengthen. This is a positive dream.

Dream about neglecting a baby: if you have children is very common to dream of neglecting a baby. I do feel this is because it’s a parent’s worst fear.

The baby is a reminder of purity and happiness. He could indicate that his time to listen to your inner self and focus on your goals.

I did feel quite out of my body, relaxed and calm. As I was holding somebody else’s baby, psychological perspective it was connected to my own inner peace. Holdings allows a baby can indicate your own hidden talents and things that you need to think about what areas of your life need to be cared for.

Dream of finding a baby girl: if you find a baby girl in your dream this can suggest your own instincts about other people’s intentions. The dream itself is connected to your own emotions, specifically positive ones. The dream can reflect a typical situation where you are replying on others.Â

Dream of giving birth to a baby girl in a dream: giving birth is a powerful dream. It is associated with our own response mechanisms to trauma. In so many words I do believe that this dream is all about new starts. The presence of a husband or partner in the dream is also a positive omen, the dream itself can be very lucid and reflect a typical delivery. There are many you contacted me after having such a dream for example, a lady called Karen contacted me after dreaming of giving birth to a baby girl. This left her feeling hopeful she was going to have a baby girl in the future. Four months later she reported she was pregnant with a baby girl!Â

A nightmare about a baby girl in a dream: At times some people have contacted me quite frightened about their baby girl dream. If you woke up in distress during this dream then this can suggest that you were worrying or perceiving danger in waking life. For example, one user emailed me because she saw her baby falling from a great height. In her email she said she felt quite panicked and worried. In this instance there is a mixed emotion it could be that there is anxiety around a child.

What Does It Mean If I Dream of Having A Baby?

As with our article on what it means if you dream you are pregnant, all dreams can be interrupted differently. If you had baby dreams, there could be a variety of meanings. It is up to you to interrupt the dream according to what is going on in your life at that time. Let us explore a few of them.

Inner Child

A baby could represent your inner child, the child that was, and the child that perhaps has some unfinished business or tasks to perform. Maybe you didn’t have a very easy childhood and feel slightly robbed of those precious, innocent years. The baby can be manifested as your desire to go back to that time or at least take a breather from adult life and have some uninhibited fun, like using a small baby walker.

The inner child interruption could also mean you are in need of some TLC. You may be stressed, overworked, underpaid and generally not appreciated. Or at least, that is how you are feeling. Time to take a moment or two for yourself and have some ‘me’ time.

New Beginnings

Having a baby is the start of a new period in one’s life and so this can represent a new path or journey you are about to undertake. It could be a new job, a new vacation or a new relationship. The baby dream could be telling you to review this change with careful insight; to be sure it is the right choice for you.


If you lose the baby in the dream or forget about the baby, it may lend itself to an aspect of your life that you are changing and essentially leaving behind. You may have actually lost someone close to you or lost an opportunity that you truly regret. You probably will wake up feeling a deep sense of grief and perhaps even guilt. Ride those feelings and see where they take you.

Boy or Girl

If the dream allows you to see the gender of the baby, you could decipher the meaning in this way. Either you are already pregnant and could be secretly or opening wishing for a specific gender or if you know the gender already and dream of the opposite, it could be a sense of guilt that you, deep down, actually would have preferred the other sex.

A baby boy represents masculinity and can mean you are wanting to be more forceful and assertive in your life. It could also mean the opposite. That you are being too testosterone-like and need to tone it down.

Dreaming of a baby girl, as with the opposite gender, lends itself towards your feminine side and whether you are expressing that part of yourself or not.

Prem Petite

If you give birth to a prem baby in your dream it would represent you are possibly starting a new venture prematurely. Perhaps you need to take a step back and reevaluate things.

She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not

If the baby in the dream does not like you, this can mean that a relationship you are in should not be pursued further than friendship. As you can see, there are many variations of ‘I had a dream I had a baby’, so if you really feel you want to know, especially if the baby dream is repetitive, then look at aspects in your life that fit one of the scenarios above.

Life throws us messages all the time and it’s up to our perceptive side to take the meaning from those messages, without letting them consume us.

10 reasons why you’re dreaming about your ex

For most people, sleep is the best, partially because it gives us a chance to relax and dream. But sometimes, those dreams can be the source of major stress, especially if you’re dreaming about someone you’d rather forget. One minute, you’re dreaming about eating the best ice cream you’ve ever tasted, and then, suddenly…your ex is there? What does it mean when you dream about your ex? It’s not always a sign that you subconsciously want to get back together.

Of course, it’s only natural to wonder the reasoning behind your dreams, and your curiosity probably doubles when someone unexpected pops up. But even if you’re happily in a new relationship (or feel like, in your waking hours, you’re super over that old boyfriend or girlfriend), it’s not that strange if you see an ex or two in your dreams.

Dreaming about an ex is actually really common — and it might not mean what you think. If you’ve found yourself wondering why your brain keeps bringing up a certain person when you’re asleep, one (or more) of these reasons might explain it.

1. You have unresolved feelings toward your ex.

Before you freak out too much about this one, remember that these feelings don’t necessarily have to be romantic ones. According to relationship expert Terri Orbuch, who spoke to Women’s Health, dreaming about an ex could mean that you’re looking for closure. Maybe you’re unsettled with the way things ended between the two of you, or maybe you’re still trying to work past the way your relationship ended in your mind.

2. You’re worried about being successful in a new relationship.

As Ally Mead — a psychic who has studied dream analysis — told The Huffington Post, there’s a good chance that if you dream about the ex when you’re starting a new relationship with someone else, you’re probably comparing the two in an effort to make sure that this time, things work out. “If you’re entering into a relationship with a new person, your psyche may still be trying to sort out the pluses and minuses of your old relationship,” Mead said. “In this situation, your psyche is trying to ensure success with your new relationship.”

3. It’s a symbol of a bigger problem.

“Most of the time, however, dreams are symbolic and not literal,” Mead said. “Your feelings are probably best directed toward healing whatever happened to make you exes in the first place.”

So basically, if you’re dreaming about your ex, think about why your relationship ended and what you could have done differently. If it was your fault — and even if it wasn’t — sorting that out and preventing it from happening in future relationships could put these dreams to an end.

4. You’re actually not over them.

Even though there are plenty of reasons you’re dreaming about your ex other than still having feelings for him or her, this is still an option. You might need to take a deep look inside yourself and figure out if you’re actually wishing you could get back together…and then figure out where to go from there.

5. It’s not about your ex, it’s about you.

According to Psychics Universe, there’s a chance that an ex in a dream represents a part of you. Maybe it means that you gave up too much of yourself and what you love in your past relationship, and it’s time to get that back. Or maybe it means that you’re neglecting yourself in some way. Either way, it can’t hurt to analyze your own behavior during the time you were with your ex and figure out if you need to make any major changes.

6. You’re afraid someone else will hurt you again.

For a lot of people, getting over an old relationship is difficult, simply because it comes with the fear of being hurt the same way again — especially if your breakup was particularly brutal. That might have something to do with your ex guest starring in your dreams. According to Exemplore, the dream might even be your way of realizing a new relationship is going down the same path. That might mean that you need to do what you can to change the relationship’s course, or that you haven’t had full emotional closure.

7. The ex in your dream is actually you, breaking up with yourself.

As you can probably tell by now, exes appearing in dreams can symbolize all kinds of things. Exemplore says it might just be your mind’s way of telling you that you’re repressing a different side of yourself — likely an opposite side of yourself — and that you need to get in touch with who you really are.

“Interpreting this type of dream as a sign that you should re-connect with your ex will not only leave this issue unresolved but will also complicate the issue further,” the site says. “This dream is giving you the message that you need to strengthen the relationship you have with yourself; don’t distract yourself by misplacing your energy into external relationships at the moment.”

8. You’re trying to forgive them after a bad breakup.

If things between the two of you didn’t end well and there was never an opportunity for forgiveness, the dream could be your brain’s way of creating that opportunity for you. According to Dreamstop, it might represent the fact that you need to make peace with your ex. Want the dreams to stop? Forgive your ex when you’re awake and conscious, and that might just do it.

9. You miss parts of your life with them.

According to Dreammoods Dream Dictionary, seeing your ex in a dream could mean that there’s something in your old life with that person that you miss — and you want it back. However, that missing piece isn’t necessarily the person; it could be where you lived, something you did together, or a place you used to visit often during that time in your life.

10. Something in your life is making you unhappy.

Dreammoods also adds that an ex in your dream could be a symbol of something else in your life that’s making you unhappy, something else you need to “break up with” in order to fully move on. If there’s anything you know for a fact is dragging you down, it might be a good idea to take steps to change

Dreaming about an ex can mean all kinds of things, but if you want to know what that dream is trying to tell you, it’s best to look inside yourself. You probably already have all the answers you’re looking for.
