Sex Dreams

An unexpected mind-body connection was announced recently by scientists at Johns Hopkins University. They interviewed 104 mothers-to-be who had chosen not to learn their baby's gender via prenatal tests. The pregnant women were asked to predict whether they were carrying a boy or girl based upon a "feeling," folklore, the way the pregnancy was progressing, or even dreams. 71% of the women who forecast on the basis of a "feeling" or a dream were correct. More significantly, all predictions based on dreams were on the mark.

Researchers concluded that there is much about the maternal-fetal connection to be explored.
