But lately I had begun to think I was loosing my mind. My dreams during pregnancy have become far more confused, less vivid, and more jumbled. Last night it felt as if someone had a remote control for my dreams and kept changing the channel. Even when I woke up, my thoughts were jumbled through my shower, and jumped around like a flea on crack. Trying to force myself into a little discipline, I was suddenly struck by the (irrational, I know) fear that I was developing adult ADD and I would slowly loose control on all rational thought.
So imagine my delight to read on several websites that pregnant women dream more frequently and more intensely. Because I already dream frequently, and intensely, this is resulting in the “channel surfing” dreams I’ve been having. I feel so much better. It doesn’t make me feel any more rested, but it does alleviate the fears of loosing control of my faculties just as I become responsible for another human life.
