I had the worst nightmare last night that I was staying at my mom and stepdad’s house and they had this “pet” from Africa that had the head of a duck and the body of a dog. The beak was really, really wide.
Obviously, I had never heard of this type of animal before, so I was asking my stepdad about it and he told me that it ate eggs…human eggs. Then I became totally scared of it because I knew it was going to use its crazy, wide beak to take the eggs from inside my body and eat them.
I kept running away from the animal, but it would chase me so it could eat. Everybody thought it was really funny that I was so scared and they kept laughing at me because they said the pet wouldn’t hurt me, but I was scared anyway.
I guess I don’t need to be a rocket scientist to figure out this dream has got to be about my declining fertility. But what the heck? Why all of a sudden so many baby cravings?
When you knew you were ready to have kids, did the urge kind of gradually build or did it hit you all at once like a ton of bricks? I thought it would be the former when/if it ever happened for me, but it has proven to be the latter.
