Is it normal to have erotic dreams?

Q: Why do I keep having crazy dreams now I'm pregnant? Sometimes they're quite disturbing, like giving birth to an alien, and other times they're sexy.


Midwife Nikki Khan says:

Many women get more frequent and vivid dreams when pregnant. We don’t really know why the sexy dreams happen, but it’s probably the increase of hormones. Simply relax and enjoy them!
If you’re getting frequent anxiety dreams, however, talk through your worries with your partner, your mum or a friend, and try not to go to bed with something on your mind.
Also, try yoga, which is great for calming your mind and body. Relaxation CDs are great to listen to in bed and a bedtime routine (such as a bath followed by a warm, milky drink) can also help you wind down.
