My godmother had a dream

by Kelly from North Carolina

My husband and I had started talking about trying to get pregnant. We are a military family and there were rumors going around the base that he would be deployed soon. We were planning on waiting until December 2006 and then try to get pregnant.

Well in October, I started to feel extremely weird. I started having bad headaches, I could no longer stand eating chocolate, and the thought of any pork product would cause me to run for the bathroom. I also started to get extremely tired and moody almost all the time. We blamed this on the fact that I am in my senior year of college. The rest of the symptoms were blamed on the fact that my husband had just received his flu shot. We thought that I had just gotten sick off of that.

After a couple of weeks of feeling this way, I decided to take a pregnancy test. It came out negative. I was slightly disappointed but I was also, in a way, happy because I didn’t like the idea of having to go through all of medical exams that are associated with pregnancy.

On the 27th of October, my godmother had a dream that someone within the family was pregnant. She called all of her children: no one was pregnant. Then she called my mother to find out if I or any of my siblings were pregnant. We all told my mother no.

On the way home that night, I asked my husband to go by the local store because I wanted to pick up a pregnancy test. I couldn’t get the idea out of my head that I might be pregnant. He did as I asked and as soon as I got home, I took the test. I got the digital version so that there would be no confusion in reading the results. When it finally finished testing, I couldn’t believe it. We were pregnant. I must have stared at that thing for an hour until it registered. We were having a baby. I couldn’t have been happier.

The next morning, we quickly called my godmother and told her. She kept saying that she knew someone was pregnant and was determined to find out who the new mother was. When I told my parents, they just smiled brightly at us. I think my mother knew the entire time that I was pregnant.

We are happily expecting our baby in July 2007. I can hardly wait to be a mother. I guess the next time I ever wondering if I am pregnant, I should call my godmother and find out if she has had any pregnancy dreams.
