A True Nightmare

I had the worst dream last night. It was truly a nightmare.

I have no idea what week of pregnancy I'm in, other than I'm pretty sure I'm now past the point where the baby would survive should something happen.

And in my dream, something did happen and I gave birth...to SEVEN babies!

So here I am with 3 boys, and 4 girls all about the size of dollhouse characters. Then The Marshmallow went to work and left me with them. They were all lined up on the bed sleeping and I kept losing them in the sheets. I'd count the babies and one would be missing so I'd smooth out the sheets and there would be a tiny little bump and I'd uncover a baby. I was sure it was dead but thankfully it was okay.

They slept for an entire day after they were born and after a while I figured they were probably hungry so I decided I should try to nurse them. I picked up the first boy and he opened his HUGE mouth and he had teeth! That's what woke me up - but the dream was so REAL that it just kept going even while I was wide awake lying in the dark.

I just kept thinking during the whole dream, "Now how am I ever going to give SP any attention with seven other babies?" That was my biggest stress, oh yeah - and how I was going to get seven car seats in my Jeep. Can you guess what I'm most worried about?

I am so sorry. I hope you recovered from that. Just remember that it was only a nightmare.

Hehehe I remember similar dreams prior to each of my kids. Gladly, none of them ever came to fruition :) You are an incredible mother, and you will balance everything that needs to be balanced just fine. SP is one lucky little princess. She was born to be a big sister :)

I agree with Tiffany, you do good at balancing. You are a good mom. As soon as you are able to get into a routine, things will be just fine.

That made me laugh. Sorry! I think you'd know if you were having seven but you might be surprised with twins at delivery. I had a cousin just a week ago who had only gained 17 pounds, was running right to the end and she had a surprise. One boy, AND one girl...they never discovered baby two in all of her doctor visits. But still, it is rare to not know with ultrasounds and how often they listen to the heart. I'd chalk it up as a crazy prego dream.
