bad dreams mean something sometimes?

I'm 17 12 Weeks along and the other night I had I dream I was babysitting my niece we were shopping and someone took her I let some one walk with her in a small phone shop and she just dispperd the guy was there still but not her I went crazy betting the man where is She I start crying he said he's magic and then while later she's found in the store cabinets that is locked. Could this be a sign I'm not ready or that'll I'll lose my baby? I know some dreams mean something but I'm not sure about this one and I woke up crying I was holding her when I found her and kissing her in my dreams I was freaking out any opinions?

Deams are often an account of our subconscious and things that we think of during the day. Your mind is processing what you have done throughout the day and your worries are there along with thoughts and other actions. Do not take this dream to heart or cause any undue stress to yourself. Stay healthy and happy, anxious energy can be transferred to your baby.

While it is a very disconcerting dream, I believe I've read that strange dreams during pregnancy are hormone related. Stay strong and courageous :)

I had. Normally my bad dreams (before pregnant) was of the world ending or natural catastrophic events out of my control. Once pregnant my dreams changed, and all of a sudden I was having mission impossible like dreams: still tense,  yet more capable of being controlled by my own decision making in the dream. I had two theories from these two different patterns of dreaming. On one hand I feel like the change was a positive because now I felt more in control. And I think I had more control because my mind was adapting to the fact that I needed to survive in order for my baby to survive.  In my mission impossible dreams I thought my way out of danger, and even though my baby wasn't in the dreams nor was I pregnant within my dreamz, I needed to make sure I was safe in order to protect my baby. I feel the change in the nature of my dreams reflected a change in the woman and instincts I was developing as a natural effect of becoming a care taker or a mom. I couldn't afford to be weak or helpless any more as my natural catastrophe dreams rendered me. Making me feel ad though I had no control over the influences of any negative events I encountered. This was earlier in my pregnancy. Now at 34 weeks I still have bad dreams, and some consist of me not being able to be there for my baby... I'm very cautious of what's going on in my environment because of these fears. But I think it's that motherly instant developing, that we all hear about but probably truly don't understand. But if these dreams aren't preparation for becoming an attuned and attentive mother, idk what is.

It is normal and I was told that it is often dreams about protecting your child from terrible things. It is normal and it does go away but u r just preparing for when come. U will then just have thoughts of bad things that could happen and what u would do to stop it.
Don't worry and take it easy knowing u are preparing even though they r very scary and feel so real.
