Ever since I was young I would have horrible dreams of having a baby and then forgetting about it and neglecting it, and it would be lost somehow. I took it as a sign that I should never have children (I did eventually change my mind, but not until my 30's
). But honestly, the dream had nothing to do with babies - it was about my own view of myself and fear of failure and responsibility. It is not at all unusual for me to forget to take care of responsibilities and to let people down, and this fact causes me a lot of anxiety. When I was growing up, forgetting to do a chore, for example, was called "laziness" and "lying". So...voila. As Ladyswan said, dream symbols are really different for everyone.
