  1. I’m an Indian (Hindu). As far as i know, I’ve never heard of such thing. Correct me if i’m wrong but from what I know is that, if a woman is pregnant in her dream, it means that she’s has some negative energy followed her. And giving birth is absolutely not a good sign. Well this is from what I have heard. If i’m wrong, do let me know. Thank you.

  2. my x partner who is male was about four months preggers in my dream. I’m not sure if he realised he was with child. it was odd bcos one minute he wasn’t pregnant and then suddenly I could see his belly. ifelt jealous peed-off frustrated, and then he started to reel off abt four five women who were also pregnant. iwas getting ready for work at the time. He was just fucking lounging about on the sofa(my sofa) looking quite calm an collected. I told him, don’t tell me nothing idont wanna hear abt who’s pregnant, ijust said lucky for them and you that you’re able to afford that luxury. He gave me could descending look, like you’ll never change, your to soft, you feel things to strongly, you believe in honesty and fairness – you’re me er gunna get pregnant – unlucky for you. I’m too old to get pregnant now, not that it really matters – I think the pregnancy thing meant something else, but what it meant, I haven’t a clue. He’d also changed the wheels an the saddle on my mountain bike to a medium brown leather racing saddle, which for me is not as comfortable as a very padded generic saddle. He’d also changed the wheels and the tyres to racing bike tyres and rims. iwas livid. And asked him why he did that. And then I realised he was actually holding my other mountain bike hostage, he’d sneaked it out from under my nose.

  3. I had a dream that i was lying next to a guy that i was seeing in the past(we are no longer talking terms)thats we were just talking and he had no shirt on ,he was pregnant and i was rubbing his belly(like if it was normal for a man to be pregnant)

  5. Hi, I dreamt my ex husband is pregnant with my child (I’m a woman) and I kissed his tummy but stepped back and realized it can’t happen. I told him I will not go through this pain again. I my dream he’s pregnant but I will be the one giving birth (c-section). I also thought I have a good boyfriend now and how am I going to explain this craziness to my boyfriend because this would mean that I cheated on my boyfriend with my ex husband.
    (My husband and I had a very ugly, nasty divorce that lasted for 4 years and I met a wonderful guy and we’ve been dating for 7 months now. My ex husband and I had 3 kids in our marriage)

    • Shafika — I had a similar dream last night. I dreamed that the ex-boyfriend (who was abusive) called to tell me that he was pregnant with my child. I went to see him and realized that I hadn’t seen him in a year and it couldn’t be mine. He confessed that he had gotten pregnant by another woman in Florida, but wanted me to raise the child with him. Then his family showed up and started yelling at me. I have no clue — wish someone would reply with an interpretation!

  6. I had a dreamlast night that my bff (14) was pregnant with one of her ex boyfriends kids. Then in the dream she told that they had sex like 8 or 9 times…. I freaked out and slapped her…. I was at her house. I told her today while changing in the locker room and she freaked out. She said that he wanted to have sex with her when they were dating but they never did. She then said that I had a very bad nightmare.
