What does a dream of a positive pregnancy test mean? It’s not what you think. You don’t even have to be female to have this type of dream.
Pregnancy can be viewed as a blessing because a new person is born if it gets to term. You may dream of pregnancy with both positive and negative outcomes.
If you suspect that you are pregnant and testing confirms it, it can be positive or negative. A positive test may cause happiness and mixed reactions for those who plan a future together. On the other hand, a negative test may bring joy to those who may not want to get pregnant. It causes sadness to those who cannot conceive.
Pregnancy may be planned or unplanned. It is often accompanied by depression, projection, anxiety, and even displacement. When you realize you are pregnant, you prepare mentally for the responsibility, and the change your pregnancy may bring.
Unfortunately, not all pregnancies get to term. Some are lost intentionally or because of unavoidable circumstances.
