Spiritual Signs During Pregnancy

Updated on June 9, 2016

Messages From the Divine

Did a spiritual sign let you know you were pregnant or that you were having a boy, a girl, or even twins?

Did a spiritual sign warn or prepare you about pregnancy or childbirth complications?

Does it ever seem as if God, or Life, is trying to get a message through to you by the things you see, hear, or experience in your daily life?

Spiritual Signs: Divine Guidance in Our Lives

Many people have found guidance in their everyday lives or discovered information which was helpful to them by viewing life's experiences in a new way.

They learn to interpret some of the things that happen in their lives as being signs or messages from a higher force, from the Holy Spirit, or from God.

Pregnancy and Spirituality

Pregnancy seems to be a time of heightened spiritual awareness for many women. During this time, and sometimes during the months leading up to pregnancy, women often begin to notice symbols or signs in their daily lives which provide them with information about their pregnancies or babies.

Others experience vivid dreams about their babies or prophetic dreams about their pregnancies, and/or rely on their intuition or inner knowingness more.

Yet sometimes women have questions about these spiritual experiences. They may not understand what is happening, wonder if others have experienced the same types of things, and wonder if their own experiences are true and accurate...or if they are just their imaginations gone wild!

Other women may be accepting of the spiritual experiences and the information those experiences provide, but aren't fully aware of the significance of the spiritual experiences that are happening to them. For the past five years, I've been involved with a project dedicated to increasing awareness and understanding about women's spiritual pregnancy experiences.

During this time, over half of the women I've spoken to or interviewed have reported being aware of divine signs during their pregnancies.

What Are Spiritual Signs Like?

How can you tell it's a sign?

Signs could come in the form of something someone says, either to you, or to someone else. Although the speaker may not be aware of it, their message may have its own level of significance to you, and the message is often about something entirely different than what the person was attempting to communicate!

Likewise, these special messages could come in the form of something you hear on the radio or TV, or something you see in print, - a headline in the newspaper, for example.

Other times, signs can come from the everyday life experiences that happen to us. When we have experiences that seem just a bit out of the ordinary or unusual, these are often good times to stop and think, "Does this experience have a special meaning for me? What is it trying to tell me?"

Signs like these happen to us all the time, yet unless we are aware of the possibility, we may completely overlook them.

A Series of Physical 'Coincidences' Can Actually Be Messages From Spirit

A quote from Jason Bedunah about spiritual signs:

"This idea, which I have seen several times at work in my own life, says that a series of physical "coincidences" can actually be messages from Spirit to guide you into greater understanding or lead you from harm. The idea is phenomenal. It requires you to understand that there really is no separation between the physical and the spiritual. When you realize this, you can begin to see Spirit at work through everyday events!" - Jason Bedunah

For spiritual signs to be of any use to us, we must notice them. Sometimes a single sign will stand out and seem so unusual or out of place that I instantly notice. Other times I'll just get a feeling inside that I am to take notice, as this experience is significant. But every so often, a particular sign seems to just blend right in with life, and the way that I become aware of it is by its frequency over a short time period.

The signs might not all be the same. Let's say you are going on vacation and have been making a lot of purchases over the past few days. As you are standing in line at a store, you overhear someone nearby talking about having lost their wallet. A few minutes later you overhear someone else talking about needing to deposit money in the bank. Then you get up to the cashier, yet you must stand and wait while she trades in some $20's for $1's.

Perhaps none of these events by themselves would have made you take note, but if taken all together over a very short period of time, they might send up a red flag within you. Perhaps as a group they would have given you the message that you needed to curtail your spending a bit!

Types of Divine Signs

The most common spiritual pregnancy signs I've been told about were about being pregnant or about the gender of their baby, although others have been mentioned too. These signs have come in a variety of ways.

Some have come via various forms of media, including songs heard on the radio ("You're Having My Baby" for example!), captions in newspapers or magazines, and things seen or heard on TV.

They have also come from things other people have said, and from seeing unusual, noteworthy things (such as a live stork in a pond located in an area where storks don't commonly live!).

Many signs have also come from simply noticing a symbol in one's daily life which develops a special meaning to the person experiencing it (such as the doll in Aileen's story, or the factory in Jane's story (in the same article.)

Tips for Noticing Signs in Your Pregnancy

Do you have a question about your pregnancy, your baby, or the adventure of motherhood? Maybe, for example, you wonder if your baby will be healthy. Or perhaps you've been trying to get pregnant for a long time, and wonder if you ever will.

Whatever your question may be, why not ask it, either in your head, or in your journal? At the same time, ask to see a certain symbol to indicate an answer to your question. Pick something as your symbol that you don't see often.

For example, you could ask to see a bird's nest full of eggs as a sign that you are pregnant. But don't suddenly go searching outside among the trees! Relax. The symbol will come to you. Maybe while you're casually reading the newspaper one morning you'll come across a picture of a nest of eggs.

Or maybe your husband (whom you've not shared this symbol with) will point out a bird's nest to you that he noticed in the shrubs in front of your house. The symbol you select does not necessarily have to be related in meaning to your question, by the way.

Pick any symbol at all, and assign to it a special meaning of your own.

        I was driving home and was talking wo my sister on the headset when I realized I had a little spider in the car. i stoped and opened the door as i wanted the spider to leave but i couldn't find him anymore.. continued to drive and a few min later it was on my lap. my sister joked then "you know what they say in Africa when you have spiders around you?" I was not aware about this so I asked her, no what do they say? "they say you are pregnant if spiders are around you"

        my husband is African so i just found that funny and cute and did not pay any more attention.

        hours later i couldn't help but to do a test and there was a big cross in the test, i was pregnang! : )

        I met my twin flame the other week , from the first day We we’re deeply in awe with each other by the second we were pronouncing our love for each other . On the third day I got my period . We were having protected Sex , even tho I have an IUD which is meant to be the best form of contraceptive. The whole time I was on my period I didn’t have any interest in Sex which made my partner unhappy as he thought it was him I didn’t want it with. By the first day of my period going away I had my Sex drive back and wanted Sex a lot. The night I finished my period me and my twin flame had sex unprotected for the first time, during this experience I have never felt so connected to someone emotionally , spiritually and physically . When we both orgasmed together I experienced a feeling or relief and slight sadness , well not sadness I was overwhelmed and I nearly started crying . I had a weird feeling in my lower abdomen like my lady reproductive systems were awakened. Since then I have experienced very strange things happen. The night after the Sex a friend of mine told me they had a dream I was pregnant and gave birth on their couch. Then an Uber driver asked me if I was going baby shopping for no apparent reasons as I am not showing it had only been two days since I felt something be conceived . I have experienced walking with my partner talking about our imaginary baby and seeing pregnant women everywhere , families with infants. I’m not yet at an stage where I can take a pregnancy test and it would be able to pick up a possibility of pregnancy . My period isn’t due for another two weeks , but I just have this gut feeling . On top of that I’ve had weird things happen to me. Ciggarettes disappearing without a trace . Feeling sick when I drink alcohol (which I never experience as I have had a substance abuse problem with alcohol and my body was very used to large amounts of it) I feel like I’m going crazy and it’s frustrating me that I cannot even take a test to be sure. I would love nothing more than to bring a child into this world with my other half my twin flame. A divine union . But it’s just a waiting game at this point. And I have such strong urges to drink which can be so bad for infants in development. I’m not sure what to do ....

        I’m currently pregnant and according to the scans and all it’s for my recent rebound ex. However it doesn’t make sense to me as I felt I had pregnancy symptoms from before the hospital dates and would then mean I’m pregnant for my other ex who I’m still in love with. Before I found out I was pregnant I had vivid dreams of him telling me I’m having his baby plus the sex it would be and how we make a good family. He’s all I’ve dreamt about throughout my whole pregnancy and I’m now in my third trimester. The rebound ex has not shown up in my dreams once. Nor have we had any communication throughout this (yes he knows I’m pregnant). I asked to meet up twice and out of our control we just couldn’t which I took as very clear signs to stay distant throughout this time. Could my dreams be telling me the dates aren’t right and I could actually be having my true loves baby? That things are manifesting and coming into reality? I’m so glad I came across this article because my dreams are seriously telling me something alright, lol

        Today I was on my lunch break. Open my bible app and there was a prayer for pregnant women. I am 11 days late I spotted a week after my cycle for about 3 days. And then the day I was supposed to start my cycle I started spotting for a couple hours very light. Been having lower back pains slight nausea and I want to eat all the time. The thing is I only have one ovary and one tube. I had two children with one ovary and one tube. After my last childbirth I got my tubes clamped off. So if I am pregnant it's all in God's plan. It will be a miracle. I believe all things are possible through Christ who strengthens us. So I've got high hopes. I really hope I am pregnant. This Lil B my last chance to have another child.
