According to The American Pregnancy Association, pregnant women experience more vivid dreams during pregnancy due to an increase in hormone production, which affects stress, emotions and anxiety.
And Parents.com suggests that extra blood flow to the genitals during pregnancy and raised estrogen levels increase vaginal sensitivity.
‘Now that you’re pregnant, you’re going to be very focused on your body,’ Sallie Foley, a sex therapist and co-author of Sex Matters for Women told the publication.
‘And your dreams may reflect the fact that you love the new life your body is creating. You’re discovering that a woman’s body is pleasurable, exciting, and powerful in ways you’ve never experienced before.’
