The vivid pregnancy dreams are quite amusing.  Several times I've dreamt that I have a transparent stomach, that I can see inside and see the baby.  I guess that's a high-tech kangaroo pouch!  I'm always dreaming that I get to see her.

But recently I've begun dreaming that she's born, but she's a different species.  About a week ago, she was a kitten.  Last night she hatched from an egg as a chick.  And both times, this has seemed completely normal.

Last night's dream was so vivid and detailed.  My husband made it home from Afghanistan.  A few hours later, I laid an egg, which we watched and held until a little beak broke through the shell.  We helped remove pieces of shell and found a little yellow chick inside.  And it was our baby!  There was nothing odd about it.  We were talking about how we needed to swaddle her tight so her chicken legs don't flail about, and I started crying.  I looked at my husband and said, "We did it.  You made it home and then she was born.  We finally did it."

Right sentiments, wrong species.

But the really funny part of the dream was when I positioned the empty egg shell so that I could take a photo of it to put on my blog for all of you to see...

1 Were you sitting in a nest when you laid an egg?

I'm waiting for fish. Or better yet, invertebrates.

Who's to say these nonhuman offspring don't mutate into humans over time? Maybe you started off as an animal. But which one?

2 Ah! And instead you'll have to beat your husband to let you hold your precious baby girl! Do you have Dibs! word already planned out?

3 I don't think I ever had animal dreams, but I did have dreams where I took the baby out so I could hold it, then put it back in so it could finish growing.  Don't ask me how -- my dream didn't show that part!

4 I wonder if you are unconsciously open to dream suggestions, like having a velociraptor.

5 They sound like cool dreams, weird but cool, because it doesn't seem to matter the species of baby - you just sound happy in your dreams.

6 Ain't the subconscience a strange thing?  And though I'm sure we all are on the edges of our seats to see the first 'out of the pouch' picture, um, I for one, don't really need to see the placenta.  Not every dream is meant to come true you know.  Just sayin'. ;o)
