My 63 year old step father recently died unexpectedly, although he was not in the best of health. He was a Vietnam veteran and lived a hard life. He had several knee replacements and only one kidney. He came into my life when I was 2 and divorced my mom 10 years ago. He had difficulty expressing emotion but we told each other 'I love you' every time we spoke or got together, which was monthly. Several weeks ago we found him sitting in his living room with deteriorating health. We took him to the hospital and although he seemed to be improving, he died several days later. While no will has been found as of yet, we have been allowed to gather several items that are emotionally meaningful so we have been to the house quite often in the past few weeks. I am 5 monthsmpregnant and I have been having a reoccurring dream that I see my dad in his kitchen. We talk but I can't make out what we tell each other. He then gives me a hug stating,"I need to know you are not hugging me goodbye". It is so vivid I wake up sobbing. Any ideas or comments on what this means or is it just raging pregnancy hormones.

These types of dreams are more common than most people realize. Patricia Garfield wrote a nice book on dreams of deceased loved ones.

The book is called "The Dream Messenger" and you can find an excerpt from it on her site.
