    I've been having THE most vivid dreams since about week 14 now, and they are getting so scary :cry: they aren't bad dreams about baby though (which is good) but they are about the weirdest things, totally non related to my life mostly! They are getting so bad that they are keeping me up at night :( is anyone else having bad dreams? and how on earth can i stop them, is there anything my doc can do? xxxxxx

    I am 20 weeks and for the last couple of weeks have been having bad dreams too, though in mine there is always a problem that causes my baby to be born premature... the baby always ends up ok but its still unnerving to wake up from. I think it maybe due to the fact I'm waiting to hit the 24week mark to be viable and I'm a student Midwife so know all the things that can go wrong :(

    I've been having horrible dreams too, for about 10 days every single night. Its gotten to the point where it is seriously interrupting my sleep, so I asked my doc about it. She recommended prenatal yoga (which I'm trying, but so far haven't noticed a difference), acupuncture (which I'm way too scared to try), and if these dont work, try taking Ambien. I dont really want to, I tried taking an OTC sleep aid that is safe during pregnancy, but even that didn't help at all. I dont even wanna fall asleep anymore, because its a nightmare every time I do!

    I truly hope it gets better for you. I know how bad it can be!!

    I keep dreaming that I'm trying to breastfeed and people keep taking the baby off me telling me they can do it better and I'm doing it wrong. I guess just worries about being a first time mum! They are so vivid though, and OH says he can constantly hear me talking and mumbling in my sleep haha!
