So I've been falling asleep a lot on the couch in the evenings, usually with a dog or two at the end of my feet or nudging into the curve of my back or my knees. It looks cute, but is really annoying when they fall into a deep sleep and then won't budge unless I physically lift and move them off the couch. And Sasha is a hefty 35 pounds of dead weight when she is asleep, so moving her is not an easy task with a growing belly and a groggy head.
I've also been having the weirdest dreams. I'm talking vivid, absurd, kooky dreams usually involving a baby and a location I've never visited. Last night I dreamt that I was in Bradford, a city in North England. I've never been to Bradford; I don't know anyone in Bradford; I don't even really know where Bradford is other than up North somewhere...how random is that?
I have read that vivid dreams are normal in pregnancy, but I can't remember why. Probably something to do, yet again, with these wacky hormones racing through my body. But then again, the dreams might be more to do with anxiety about the upcoming birth. Mr M told me he has been having odd and vivid dreams as well. He had one the other day where I went into labour too early and the doctor's were very worried, but then I gave birth to a huge baby! Weird.
At least we can laugh at these in the morning and be thankful that they aren't real.
