Jessica Alba's pregnancy dreams

Filed under: Just For Moms, Your Pregnancy, Bump Watch

Overall, being pregnant for the first time is a wonderful and exciting experience for most women. But it can also be a little bit scary. You take those surging hormones and combine them with a fear of the unknown, and a girl can get pretty worked up.

Actress Jessica Alba, who is expecting her first child, knows all about that. She tells Extra that she's having baby dreams and feeling overly-emotional lately. Like most first-timers, she has anxieties related to becoming a mother, but not in the way you might expect. She's not concerned so much about giving birth, but about the breastfeeding that follows and her fears have seeped into her dreams. "[One dream] had to do with breastfeeding, which is the only thing I'm paranoid about. More than giving birth," she said.

She is also finding herself quicker to anger and easily brought to tears. "Anything could make me incredibly angry or break down crying. That's not something I'm used to," she says.

I was a big cry baby when I was pregnant, too. Bursting into tears for no good reason was embarrassing and unsettling and I felt like I didn't even know myself anymore. But it was the dreams that I remember most. I have always been one to have vivid dreams that I usually remember the next morning. But when I was pregnant, the dreams were much more intense. All those things I wouldn't allow myself to worry about during the day would come spilling out in the form of bizarre and disturbing nocturnal adventures. I had a recurring dream where I had lost my baby and was searching everywhere for her. I always found her, but in a weird place like in a drawer or under the bed.

What about you? Did you have bizarre dreams when you were pregnant? Do you remember any of them?
