Hi lizalejo! Dreams are usually used by our brains to help sort through issues. It sounds as though you really do want to have a child, but certainly there are things that are holding you back.

Why not educate yourself more on how it feels to be pregnant, what types of changes your body makes, how to plan for a new baby in the home, etc. Your local library would have plenty of books I think.

You speak of courage to have a child, and yes, it does take a lot of that (or ignorance. ) (((((hug)))) I think you're being a responsible adult to not just rush into things. How is the relationship with your spouse really? You say very happy, but maybe there are issues you haven't really settled yet that is holding you back, unknowingly?

Generally dreams are best interpreted by the dreamer. I hope something I've said will click for you, and that you'll be able to figure things out quickly.

Well I already have a 7 year old. I think maybe I feel pressured to have another because my husband and son want a baby. I want to have another too but I just dont feel like its time. I dont know why I feel that way I just do(wierd). I was very young when I got pregnant with my first baby. I was 15 and had him when I was 16. I tried my best to be a good mom and I think I have done a good job but I do want to go back to school and study a career. That has always been in my mind and maybe thats the reason I'm not ready to have another. Its been in my mind and Its something I really want so I will have a long talk with my husband.

Thanks for the help. You opend the door to my answer.

Hi lizalejo! Since you have been thinking about having another child, the dream could very well be speaking to that literally, helping you to sort through your feelings about it all. If it were my dream, I would also consider being pregnant in a more metaphorical sense. I would ask myself what else might I be wanting to birth (besides an actual baby)? Is there a longing in me to bring something into the world in a creative way (like writing or creating art or building something) or do I have a great idea for a business or a project that I want to bring to life? Just another thought to consider...

Well, I think you answered it yourself. You have been feeling pressured to have the baby, and you cannot see the baby--not knowing whether it is boy or girl--thereby not giving it an identity--in effect, not trying to bond with it, because you dont want it or dont feel you can have it due to the time...

Theres nothing wrong with your feelings...you have a right to feel that way, you know?

Best,

Clyde
