Dream Interpretation: Pregnant
When it comes to dream interpretation, pregnant dreams are generally quite common. While it may seem natural for women to experience dreams about pregnancy and child birth, men also experience dreams about pregnancy and even being pregnant.
What Do Dreams About Pregnancy Mean?
Pregnancy is universal. It is experienced by all races, cultures, and ethnic groups. Because of this, dreams about pregnancy quite often have a very literal meaning. A pregnancy mean may be symbolic of an actually pregnancy or the desire to become pregnant. If neither of these conditions exist, then it becomes necessary to look at the very nature of pregnancy and the context of the dream to truly determine the meaning.
Pregnancy is the creation of new life out of the body or out of one's self. Many dream interpreters therefore believe that pregnancy dreams are about creativity. If you are dreaming about being pregnant, you may be craving more time to be creative or you may be contemplating an exciting and new creative project. A man who dreams of being pregnant himself may be in a situation in which his virility or creativity has been questioned. Quite often mean who dream they are pregnant do not give birth to children. Instead, they typically give birth to an object of some kind that in some way supports their current world view or mission.
