When you're pregnant, you might experience having a number of unexplainable dreams, but can any of them have a more significant meaning? Dreaming of a baby with a big pink bow in their hair might get you giddy because you might be expecting a little girl and the dream makes you think she is on the way. But you might also question how accurate your dreams are, then this article will cover just that.
Dream of Having a Baby Girl While Pregnant: Is That True?
While dreams can be telling of what your subconscious may be thinking or feeling, they aren't able to predict the future. When you dream about a specific sex of your baby, this doesn't mean you are going to have a boy or girl, it does mean that you favor one sex over the other. This, however, may not be the case for everyone. Some women have been able to predict the gender of their baby based on what their dreams revealed while others got it wrong.
My husband and I both had dreams that we were expecting a baby girl. We already have two girls so we were actually really hoping for a boy. Even the mother in law told us she had a dream that we were having a little girl. We didn't think it could be a coincidence that we all had dreams of a little girl, but in the end we had the little boy that we were hoping for. -Amber

Other Dreams Meanings When Pregnant
Dreaming of water will often relate to your emotions or feelings. Seeing dirty or murky water indicates that you are unsure of your feelings while clear water means you are certain of your feelings and stormy water and waves typically represent that your feelings are about to change about something.
Photography and nature dreams
Dreaming about things in nature or that happen in nature often represents ideas or goals you have in real life. Many times these goals or dreams have been given up in your real life and your dreams are telling you need to learn how to handle not achieving these goals. When you see yourself taking photos in your dreams, this represents that you are trying to get a better perspective on how to achieve these things.
Insects and small animals
It may be odd but dreaming of giving birth to a small animal indicates that you will love your baby unconditionally. Dreaming of a spider, however, reveals there is an emotion struggle in your life taking place.
When you dream about taking a trip, you are dreaming about the journey into parenthood that you are about to embark on. Whether you dream of having a baby girl while pregnant or dream of a boy, if you are traveling in your dreams, then you are mentally preparing yourself for the journey.
Conceiving a baby
Having dreams about conception have little to do with conceiving a baby, but instead represent a creative idea you are bringing to life.
Dreaming about giving birth doesn't mean you will be going into labor anytime soon, as many mothers believe, especially later in the pregnancy. Instead, the birth symbolizes that something such as a work project or skill is strengthened or developed in your life, which also requires a great deal of effort or work.
Harming your baby
Dreams that you are hurting your baby or that your baby is born unhealthy can be disturbing, but it doesn't mean you will abuse your child. These dreams have more to do with the time you have to care for your child and the conflict you are having with prioritizing everything in your life.
Leaving your baby somewhere
Dreams of forgetting your baby often mean you are thinking about all the things you will be giving up once the baby arrives. This can be your career, hobbies or social life.
