ESSAY : What is the symbolic meaning of babies and pregnancy in dreams?

Dreams about babies and pregnancies are often symbolic. In most cases its easy to spot when it is symbolic and when it is not - simply if you are not pregnant or just had a baby then its symbolic in meaning.

In many cases babies can simply represent something that is new. E.g.

"I have just got a laptop computer to connect to Internet in public places. I am starting to think though that this may not be as easy as I thought"[Dream symbol - heavy baby dream][the dream on which this quote is based on features at the end of this article]

"I had expected that money to have come through by now. But so far it hasn't - maybe I should check up"[Dream Dictionary - dead baby in a purse dream]

"My friend has made some NEW Chokers. They are well designed"[Dream symbol - baby dream]

In many cases babies symbolise a fresh new mood of optimism and enthusiasm. E.g.

"I have have gone to work with a NEW WILLINGNESS to get along with those around me. I have a whole new attitude"[Dream Dictionary - baby dream]

"Me and my sister have both made FRESH START yet I am sure that she has made much more progress than me"[Dream Dictionary - hospital check for pregnant sisters dream]

"I really opened up to my boyfriend emotionally last night. I told him about my inner feelings and how I need to express them"[Dream Dictionary - fish gives birth dream]

In many cases the enthusiasm has been generated by some new project or opportunity. E.g.

"This OPPORTUNITY will be good for me. Its a fresh start"[Dream symbol - baby dream]

"I have worked hard on my research at work. I have got really involved in it and feel proud of my results"[Dream Dictionary - show off my new baby]

"I have put so much effort into this NEW PROJECT yet I am not getting any help from the people around me"[Dream Dictionary - baby crying dream]

Babies may refer to some new relationship. E.g.

"I have started a new relationship. But I have some real fears about it and part of me wants to end this"[Dream Dictionary - execute a baby dream]

Babies may refer to responsibilities and the need to show care and attention . E.g.

"My relationship is more equal with my mother now. I try to let her vent her feelings. I care for her as much as she cares for me"[Dream Dictionary - changing babies diaper dream]

Babies or pregnancy may refer to a need to take things easy and be more responsible. E.g.

"My son tends to be very excitable. He can injure himself. I think he should take a lot more care of himself" [Dream Dictionary - my son stops because he is pregnant]

DREAM TIP : Try to think of dream symbols as words. Think of babies in dreams as representing the word "new". Then try to write down a few quotes which capture all major issues and in particular things that took place the day before. Think of quotes like "I have been trying to instil a new sense of discipline on my co-workers", or "I am going to have to prepare for tomorrows meeting with my boss", or "My sister seems a little angry yesterday for no reason". Now look through those quotes again and see where that word "new" appears or could have some relevance. If there is a strong connection then your dream could link to this issue.
THE DREAM I am in some house which appears quite poor and run down. I think of Scotland in the dream for some reason. Later I am later playing with a baby. I pick up the baby but he appears to be very heavy.

THE REALITY The previous day the dreamer had got a laptop with wireless connections. The aim had been to get this computer so she could use it in public places such as cafes, libraries and community centres. But the dreamer was beginning to think that this would not be as successful as she had hoped.

DREAM ANALYSIS The baby is a good link to this dream. Babies symbolise new ideas and emotions. In this case the dreamer was just getting interested in wireless computers. But unfortunately it was not working out very well. That links to the negative feelings towards the baby in the dream.

Scotland in the dream probably refers to things associated with Scotland. It is a remote and rather cold climate. That links to the new feelings forming within the dreamer. The wireless networks in the mind of the dreamer were not as prolific and numerous as she thought. In fact on the day of the dream she did not manage to connect to any wireless Internet links.

Symbolic Meanings
BABY : "something new - in this case a new interest in wireless computers"
SCOTLAND : "a lack of momentum due to the cold climate - captures the dreamers feelings about wireless"
SCOTLAND : "remote and rural - captures the feelings about her ability to connect to other computers"

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "I have just got into wireless computers but I think its really not as good as I first thought. "
