Snake Dreams During Pregnancy
Snake dreams during pregnancy are not to be feared. If this reptile appears in your sleep while you’re pregnant, the interpretation of this powerful symbol may give you useful information about your own thoughts or feelings about the changes that are occurring. Dreaming of a snake could also mean that you are being warned about potential events that may affect your pregnancy in positive or perhaps negative ways. No matter what the content of the snake dream is, analyze your dream with caution and flexibility, paying attention to various meanings as to not draw conclusions too fast that would be overbearing.

What does dreaming about snakes while pregnant mean?
Here are several meanings to help interpret your dream.
Dream Meaning #1: Your intuition is being put to the test
If a snake appears in a dream while you are pregnant, it indicates the possibility of a conflict between your conscious self, preoccupied with conforming to social norms or cultural or family traditions, and your spirit or inner drive that is more instinctual, moved by your own rhythms and passions.
The snake could represent habits or patterns of behavior that are brought to your attention by the pregnancy.
Dream Meaning #2: Experiencing conflicting ideas and beliefs
Depending on whether the presence of the snake in your dream is threatening or associated with positive feelings, the dream can be interpreted in different ways. If the dream has negative connotations, the snake is a representation of patterns, beliefs or value system that are limiting for you.
They may be your own beliefs or some that are conveyed by your family or your social or cultural environment.
Dream Meaning #3: Paying attention to your own guidance
If the dream has positive connotations, the snake represent an opportunity to discover yourself, perhaps new ideas about who you are, about your life and the world.
The snake could be interpreted as a representation of your own instincts, perhaps even your own inner guidance system. Pay attention to what the snake is showing you in the dream, if it has a message.
