Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

Why are dreams about being pregnant so common? What might a dream about being pregnant mean? What might it mean if you are not trying or wanting to be pregnant in real life? Or, conversely, if you do want to be pregnant in real life?

Answered by Dr. Uzma Arqam


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Dreams about pregnancy ,conception are more common in women that have been trying to conceive for long time and remained unsuccessful or had a bad obstetric history such as multiple miscarriages, intrauterine fetal deaths, stillbirths, newborn baby's death or unable to have proper sex life or unable to conceive due to hard job, responsibilities, financial or health issues, etc. In all the above cases anxiety is the major factor. Dreaming about happy married life, having conception or baby or taking care of a beautiful child is a greatest dream in most of the women that is so common and should be I think.

Being pregnant in dreams is to hoping for a healthy happy married life in normal ladies or in women with previous bad obstetrics history it is really a major concern as they try and struggle for a normal healthy baby. Similarly who want to be pregnant or those who does not want to be pregnant both can dream of conception but for both categories feeling would be different. In women who want to conceive it is dreaming as per their wish and for those who are not prepared for pregnancy or does not want it, this dreaming conception could be a threat as to take proper precautions such as contraceptives or if they got symptoms of pregnancy unexpectedly then as anxiety.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
