This was my dream:
I had strong pains and thought I was getting my period. I was lying with my husband on the couch. I strained and pushed, like in labor, and than to my surprise a baby came out, with lots of blood. I kept saying, this can't be, I wasn't pregnant. The baby was sickly and small, like a foetus. I didn't want it. But I felt I must care for it. I nursed it and it drank some drops of milk from my small breasts which weren't full like when a woman usually has a child. The baby looked better, but still sickly. I felt really disappointed to have a baby. I didn't want another one. Yet it was there and I had to care for it. I felt no motherly instinct. I kept forgetting where I put the baby. I would suddenly remember it and go to find it wrapped in a plastic bag and looking almost dead. Than I would nurse it again and it would perk up. But the next time I found it it was in the plastic bad again, hidden in my room. Each time I offered it some milk, but even my breasts were small and there was not much milk. I felt so indifferent to the baby, yet responsible for it. This kept going on and on in the dream.

When I awoke I felt very disturbed about the image of the sickly baby and my lack of maternal feelings in the dream.

Thank you for your help!

Thank you for choosing me to answer your question.

As far as I can understand,  this dream represents a tiresome and excessive resresponsibility which you can neither get rid of nor fulfill in a satisfactory and complete way.

I wish you all the best

Jamal Hussein is a serious and diligent Egyptian Sunni-Muslim researcher in the field of Symbolic Dream Interpretation since 2004. Four years later, in 2008, he wrote a comprehensive and methodical bulky dissertation called A Sun for The World of Dreams, which was admired and respected by millions of Dream Interpretation professionals, learners and fans in North Africa and the middle east. Jamal Hussein has several published written scientific works on Dream Interpretation. He also has been widely recognized as an Interpreter and Analyzer of Symbolic Dreams for years. He has been an volunteer in Dream Interpretation category since 2009. Jamal Hussein is a Dream Interpretation pioneer. He was the first researcher to prove the existence of an independent and complete science for Dream Interpretation (not a part of psychology or astrology). Accordingly, he was the first to coin the term Dream Interpretation Science. Since Jamal Hussein has started his writing career about Dream Interpretation, many of his readers claimed to have experienced an unusual and pleasurable journey of scientific argument, logic, simplicity, and well-organized approach toward a final goal of full mastery and skilled application of information. As a result, Jamal Hussein has helped many Dream Interpretation enthusiasts to gain the essential knowledge and training required to understand confidently the hidden message within their dreams.


Unlike amateurs or fans, Dream Interpretation professionals have always believed that it is a complicated process. Dream Interpretation is faraway from and wider than just buying a dream dictionary and matching up its “interpreted” items with dreams incidents. A successful interpretation of a dream requires a certain level of acceptable knowledge and a minimum standard of mental and analytic skills. In addition, Dream Interpretation is not an abstract or isolated practice, but it is influenced, usually, by several intersecting human and environmental factors. When a dream interpreter attempts to solve the hidden message within the showing events of a dream, they may need to dive deep into human mentality and feelings or fly high to review a whole picture of human circumstances and conditions in the meanwhile. Although, I claim that Dream interpretation is a separate and complete science of its own. I also believe that it is built up on a range of different religious, logical, personal and social resources that should work together in harmony to provide with the most accurate, convincing and down-to-earth interpretation of dreams. The method I use in Dream Interpretation process is a mixture of what is religious and what is human in a logic and simple treatment. Although, I have an Islamic background, and I owe the greatest credit for the Traditions and Beliefs of Islam through my professional scientific journey, however, my Dream Interpretations are not exclusive to a specific religious or cultural group. My job is not related by any means to Occultism, Astrology, Horoscopes, Witchcraft, Paganism, Hypnosis, or Parapsychology. If you are searching mainly for psychology, you should not expect too much here. I do not use Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, and other Cults as main references. Lucid dreaming and out-of-body experience are excluded as well.
