I grew up without a dad and spent a lot of time at my grandparents’ house, so I was extraordinarily close to my grandpa. I was the only grandchild, and he died when I was 18, in 2006. I’m 22 weeks pregnant, and we found out our baby’s gender via a blood test at 12 weeks. The results took a couple of weeks to receive. While waiting for the results, I had a dream about my grandpa. In my dream I was in my bedroom exactly as it is IRL. There was a man in the corner of the room. As he got closer, it turned out to be my grandpa. He hugged me and we got to talk for a little while. He told me how excited he was that I am having a baby. Right before he left, he said “I’m so glad it’s a boy.” Two days later, we got the call that we are indeed having a boy. Pregnancy dreams are notoriously strange, but this one felt incredibly real. I’ve always been a skeptic, but now I’m not so sure.
