Of late (actually more or less since the last few months of my pregnancy) I have been having nightmares.
The last few months of my pregnancy were of course dreams about the labour. On bad days I would have nightmares of losing my unborn son. Reckon the article I read about 2 robbers kicking a 7 month pregnant lady in a Shell petrol station causing her a miscarriage is rooted deeper than I thought in my memory!
Of late my nightmares have resulted in me waking up sweating. I actually wake up feeling terrified. More often than not, my nightmares concern me being in danger of something and trying to find a way out. Sometimes, I would have to kneel by the side of the bed to pray that this heavy forbearance would be lifted off me and that some resemblance of peace will fill me and give me a few more hours of sleep.
So, no bad news for me. Don't think I can take anymore sleepless nights. And this time, it's not because of the kid!
