My Pregnancy Dream - So Vivid

I had a dream a few weeks before I found out that I was pregnant. It was extremely vivid that when I started feeling nauseated my husband decided to buy a test. I'll explain that later but back to the dream.

I woke up in my dream took the test and it came back positive. I told my husband congratulations you're going to be a dad in my dream. Well later down the road we go to the doctor and found out that I was having twins. My husband faints and I wake up from the dream. Well I told him about the dream so he decided that I should take a test. I didn't know what test he picked up but the exact test he picked up in real life was the exact one I used in my dream!!!

I told him that and now we are just hoping the second half of my dream doesn't come true. We will love them both the same if it does its just scary you know. And what makes it more real is that people around me are thinking that I could be pregnant with twins. Oh, i am suppose to be eight weeks pregnant as i am typing this, go for an ultrasound in couple of days so i will know then. So to anyone trying to figure out a dream good luck and sometimes it can come true!!
