Nightmares about baby stuff & being barren

I need to scribble down my dreams (nightmares) somewhere.

Forgetting to feed the baby/twins

Had this dream twice- once with a single baby and once with twins where I forgot to feed one. I took it to mean I need to nourish my body more. My sister (who’s a therapist) said she thought it meant that maybe deep down I’m scared of having a baby and so that fear translates into dreams like this. I still decided to eat more!

Having a jinn tell me I’m barren

I was in place full of women who were crowded around my friend. She was invoking a jinn (note: this friend is quite religious in reality so it’s strange that I dreamed of her doing this). I remember walking away from it as I wasn’t comfortable in the situation. I think I was searching among the seated women to find my mother. I could hear the women saying with excitement, “This Jinn is true, look how it moves her and speaks nobly through her.” I didn’t want to face my friend or see that Jinn but as I walked through the crowd I heard it speak to me in Urdu. It told me having a child wasn’t written in my destiny. I just remember clinging onto that word ‘destiny’ because my Urdu isn’t great and I don’t think I’ve ever heard it used before. Yet, I knew the meaning.

I woke up feeling sick. They say dreams after sunrise don’t mean anything but I know for myself that the dreams that stick do have meaning. Especially if you know it’s not a mish mash of your daily thoughts. I plan to suffocate the doubt that’s obviously lurking in my head.

Note: Jinn (Arabic: جن‎ ǧinn, singular جني ǧinnī ; variant spelling djinn) or genies are supernatural creatures as mentioned in the Qur’an and often referred to in Arab folklore and Islamic mythology that occupy a parallel world to that of mankind. (Source: Wikipedia)

My beloved now says I’m not allowed to blog /read any baby related materials after 8pm  – he’s sweet. I luff him.

Anyone good with dream meanings?


I opened Pandora's box and infertility entered my life.

    Ugh, I have similar dreams now and then. Some dreams are just for working through some of the stuff that goes on in life, some I believe have more meaning but I think that’s for the one who dream it to read into.

    • That last dream left me baffled. I think it might just be fear that I’m not good enough for motherhood and that God’s marked me as barren. I don’t like carrying those thoughts though so I try to shoo them away.

    I have had some awful dreams about babies as well. And some really good ones that left me feeling empty when I woke upl

    • Last night my husband had his first baby dream. Apparently I gave birth in a plane hanger. He recalled it with such joy. I’d like happier dreams, I think I’d cling onto them in hope that they’d become reality.

    Salaam, i guess you’ve had this answered by now but just in case- dreams are extremely unreliable and you should be very cautious with interpreting them or going to someone to interpret them, especially if they may hav pe ulterior motives. Most bad dreams are from shaytan, and even with what we think are bad dreams they can actually be good ones, and there are many examples of this in ahadith and in the story of Yusuf (as) with the dreams he used to interpret, so basically- just keep making dua and think of your dreams as nothing more than a manifestation of your thoughts and fears at the time you had it 🙂 x

    • I guess what scared me is that I’ve had some really spot on dreams in the past – which included one about the death of a family member I’ve never met before. That was harsh and from God – I’ll explain in my email to you.

Oh, what a power is motherhood, possessing
A potent spell. All women alike
Fight fiercely for a child.

~ Euripides, Iphigenia in Aulis, c. 405 B.C.
