A sign?

I'm not much of a dreamer. Literally. I don't have dreams very often... or at least ones I can remember. But, a few days ago, I had one that was so vivid, it creeped me out.

In the dream, I was pregnant (that's enough right there to creep me out) and going into labor. I was in a bed, and Randy was the only other person there. He was getting ready to deliver the baby (yes, it continues to grow creepier). Then, all of a sudden, I had the baby.............. it was a boy................. and it was a dog. Yep. I had a dog baby. I can remember in my dream being horrified. How could I tell people that I had a dog baby? I couldn't be happy. But it was so real. Just crazy.

After thinking a bit about the meaning of it all, I don't think there was much meaning. The teacher that I work with is pregnant and due any day (actually, we thought we'd have to rush her to the hospital today), so maybe there's the pregnancy correlation. And I do have 3 dogs, so I'm surrounded by them constantly. Perhaps that's the dog correlation. Or, maybe I'm just meant to have dogs my whole life instead of kids. Whatever the reason, I'm just glad I don't have a dog as a baby. Yep. That would be weird.

totally weird... I googled it:

To dream of giving birth or see someone else giving birth, suggests that you are giving birth to a new idea or project. It also represents new beginnings or some upcoming event. A more direct interpretation of this dream, may represent your desires/ anxieties of giving birth or the anticipation for such an event to occur.

To dream that you are giving birth to a non-human creature, signifies you overwhelming (an unfounded) fear in the health of your baby. You are overly concerned that your baby may have birth defects. This type of dream is common in expectant mothers in their second trimester. If you are not expecting, then it refers to your fear in the outcome of some decision or project. You are trying to overcome difficulties in your life and achieve inner development. In particular, if you dream that you are giving birth to a monster, then it implies that your inner creative energy has yet to differentiate itself and grow into expression. You may hold some hesitation in releasing this "monster" for fear that others will judge your or that they will not accept your ideals.�

wow... and I thought it was a combination of being around dogs and pregnant people too much. Hm.

Wacky. Good thing we don't remember dreams too often or just think of all the strangeness you would have to ponder.
