What Does It Mean When You Dream Someone Is Pregnant?


When you dream that someone is pregnant, one of the first things that you may assume is that they are going to have a child in the near future. While this always possible, there are other reasons why you might have this type of dream. Dreams about being pregnant or about someone else being pregnant are quite common. Depending on the situation in the dream, the interpretation may vary.

What Does It Mean When You Dream Someone Is Pregnant

In many cases, these types of dreams show the significance of a coming change in their life. We will go over some of the most common dreams why you might dream that someone is pregnant.

1. Creativity and Intuition

Pregnancy is about the ultimate creation. When someone becomes pregnant, they are actually creating a new life. You may have a dream that someone is pregnant if you feel like they are especially creative or are involved in a creative project. Perhaps an exciting, creative project is right on the horizon. This could be as simple as a home renovation project or a creative web design project.

2. New Projects

Being pregnant is the ultimate project. A new life is about to come into the world that took nine months of nurturing to create. Because of this, dreams about being pregnant often show a new project or venture. You might realize that this person in your life is about to take a new role at their job or start a new business.

Sometimes, a dream about someone being pregnant shows that you expect a new project or venture to start with you and them. You may think that they would be a good partner, so your subconscious is trying to nudge you into starting this enterprise.

3. A New Way of Thinking

Pregnancy dreams can also show a new way of thinking. This could be adopting a new religion, changing your perspective or thinking of a new idea. You may already know that your friend is doing this, or you may just sense that new thoughts are coming this way. Pregnancy dreams typically show some type of new life situation. It is all about a fresh start and a time of transition. It may mean that a big change is on the horizon, and your friend is trying to decide if that change will be the right one for them or not.

4. New Problems

Think about how you felt in the dream. How did your friend or family member feel? Were they happy or sad about the pregnancy? If the dream felt negative, then it might symbolize that there is a new problem in life that is starting to develop. There could also be one original problem that is the origin of even more issues and disasters.


If watching the gestation makes you scared or jealous, it is a sign that a change is happening that is not your choice and you are unable to stop it. Since this dream involves someone else becoming pregnant, it could show that there is a change approaching in your relationship with them or in their life that you are not happy about. You would like to stop the change, but you find yourself unable to do so.

Does Dreaming That Someone Is Pregnant mean That They Will Become Pregnant?

This question stems from an old wives’ tale. According to the superstition, dreaming that you are pregnant means that you will soon be with child. Luckily (or unluckily, as the case may be), this superstition is not based on reality. Unless your friend is actively trying for a child, it is unlikely that they are going to be pregnant in the near future. If they are actively trying to become pregnant, then your dream may represent a subconscious desire to see your friend happy as they start a family.

Dreams About Trying to Get Pregnant

Another variation on pregnancy dreams is to dream that you or your friend is trying to get pregnant. This variation typically shows a desire for something to develop in your life. You may wish for a promotion or for a new project to start. The dream just shows that you want something positive to develop and have not had the chance to actually develop it yet.

If you dream that someone is pregnant with twins, it shows that you feel like their life is in conflict. You may feel like there are developments taking place in their life that will make their projects, dreams and goals harder to achieve. This may be a sign that there are arguments on the horizon or that you already sense opposite opinions in their life. This is a sign to be a little wary going forward because the path ahead might not be conflict-free.


  1. I had a dream about my cousin phoning me and saying she was pregnant and breaking up with her husband and then when I woke up, my mom took me shopping and told me that my cousin was pregnant!! I couldn’t believe it! Then everyone said it was going to be a boy but I told them it wouldn’t and it’d be a girl and I found out today they were all wrong and it’s a girl!! Not sure if these are crazy coinsidences or if I’ve got a secret talent haha

    • Your dreams and feelings clearly are insightful. Allow your dreams to guide you in a positive direction. You may have a strong connection with your cousin, and your relationship with her may have manifested in your dreams. Please share more of your experiences and insights in the future. Have a great day, Molly!

    • Your dreams were reflections of your pregnancy, and it is likely that you were aware that your son’s girlfriend was pregnant before they did. Pheromones are powerful influences in our lives. Ensure that you share your kindness and compassion at all times. The absence of your dreams is a manifestation of your awareness of the truth. Have a great day, Tracy!

Determine what you want for your future. Have a great day, Karen!

    • Her behaviors in her dream were reflections of your knowledge of her fears. Your behaviors may be a manifestation of that judgment. You may be aware of the dangers of such behaviors. If someone in your life is pregnant, then do not attempt to add stress to their life. This is unhealthy for the development of the child. Have a great day, Ntsoaki!

Please any thoughts?

    • Your mother’s dream was a reflection of her thoughts and feelings. Her dream is not a reflection of the future or of fate. She likely has strong emotional concerns which manifested in her dream. This dream is a sign that she cares for you deeply. Speak with her about your thoughts and feelings during this time. Have a great day, Dee!
