Mister Morpheus, the weird dreams are spreading

We have the 20 week ultrasound today, and the babby is kicking away in preparation. He/she isn’t the only one: last night A. dreamed about the whole procedure. In it the nurse told him that we were having a baby boy, and then I immediately insisted on naming him Ray. “I just love the name ‘Ray’ so much, we have to do it,” I told him.

Which is news to him and me both. I can only assume the universe is telling him this because Franklin has been found:

And Ray 1 or Ray 2 is tagging along in the universal wake. Awwwww, better go rewatch some Due South!

I am curious to see how the sex question turns out. A. has had some prescient dreams in the past. To be continued!

  1. We’re waiting to find out the sex until the baby is born, but I’m sort of hoping I can somehow intuit it before then. Part of that has been paying attention to my dreams, and while so far I haven’t had any dreams about my specific baby, the dreams I’ve had about babies in general have been about 1.) a single girl, 2.) girl twins, 3.) boy-girl twins, 4.) a single boy, and 5.) another single girl. So far a bit girl-heavy, but far from conclusive. My husband also had a dream about twins once. I mentioned my dreams in passing to my midwife, and she said, “No, I don’t think you’re having twins.” And then proceeds to tell me that while it is super rare, she does know of a few cases where the ultrasound showed, say, a single boy, and then later out come twin girls. I don’t *think* I’m having twins, but…


    1. Oooh, I like all the twin dreams. You never know…babies are sneaky sneakers. Though your ultrasound seemed so clearly defined, I suppose you would’ve seen it there? Or maybe “twins” stands for something else in your brain, something multifaceted? NO WAY could I be over/underthinking this! (Most of my thinking wants to go toward The Shining and or references to things like Janus, but hey, it is a common sickness.)

      Anyway, I’m envious–I’ve had a single baby dream, and it mostly involved me trying to keep the little thing from smothering on a blanket, which she seemed determined to do. I’m still impressed with Adam’s dream track record. He’s had dreams about school acceptances and job acceptances, and I tell him his subconscious is the only part of him not beaten down by false (IMO) modesty. So we’ll see how this one stacks up…
