You probably anticipated many changes throughout your pregnancy, like your skin, your body, your mood. But your inner psyche? Your subconscious? Yes, it’s been reported that women’s sleep patterns + dreams can change too. Some of these changes include vivid dreams, nightmares, anxiety-based or intense dreams, or more frequent dreaming. Just remember that your body, mind and hormones are undergoing A LOT of changes, so it’s of little surprise that your dreams will be affected too. Additionally, if you’re not sleeping at the same level of rest, whether as a result of the need to pee, or your discomfort, you’ll be impacting your REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. REM sleep is when dreams occur, so you might remember or experience them more vividly if you’re waking up more often.
