You may even find that a baby may be welcome at one point in your life, but not so welcome at a different time. In a similar way, when it comes to interpreting dreams of being pregnant, you must also evaluate the general mood, as well as any indicators about the progression of the pregnancy itself.
General Dream Meaning: Pregnant and Pregnancy
Typically, the meaning of a pregnancy dream depends on your gender. If you male, and dream of pregnancy, it means that you will be well served by toning down your sexual exploits. If you are a woman, this dream can mean coming financial abundance or great happiness.
A dream of being pregnant may also symbolize some type of growth or development. You may also be on the verge of giving "birth" to a new idea, or embarking on some new adventure that will change your life. If you dream of giving birth to a non-human baby, or you dream of trying to get pregnant, it may also mean that you have anxieties about new responsibilities that may come up in the near future.
How Dream Symbol Pregnant and Pregnancy May Fit in Your Life
As with any other dream symbol, you need to start off by thinking about whether or not something occurred during the day, or even the last few days that may have been nagging at the back of your mind. Is a friend of yours pregnant or trying to conceive? Are you secretly concerned about becoming pregnant yourself? Did you watch a movie, the news, or encounter some other information about pregnancy?
Once you have ruled out waking associations, it is time to look to your inner landscape. If you are a male, perhaps you need to look more carefully at a relationship that you are in, or an involvement that looks appealing. At the very least, if you are not necessarily interested in committing to the woman in question, then you might want to take a step back and make sure you understand what her intentions are. Needless to say, if you are a woman and have this dream, you may want to keep an eye out for some new opportunities to expand your financial wealth.
A Sample Dream and Pregnancy Dream Interpretation
Consider a situation where you are a woman and dream that you just learned of being pregnant. In the dream, you are very disturbed because the date seems sooner than you anticipated. As the dream progresses, you decide to go for a walk in a beautiful field. At that point, the dream shifts and you return home; but are no longer pregnant. For some reason, you are not disturbed by the fact that the dream shifted, or the nature of the change.
Even though pregnancy may be an auspicious dream symbol for women, the distress in the dream should be a clear indicator that it may not be so in your case. Among other things, you may interpret this dream to mean that an opportunity for wealth may come along, but it may be difficult for you to take advantage of. For example, you might have to move, leave a job that you like for one that you will not enjoy, or the opportunity will cause other problems in your life. Since the dream ended without you begin disturbed by the pregnancy being gone, you may conclude that you will not take advantage of the opportunity, and will most likely be relieved that you made the choice to let it go.
