Pregnancy And Paranormal Experiences

 

I am currently 7 months pregnant with my second child and while we have almost always had something going on in our home I noticed something different. I was around two months pregnant at the time that we started getting new activity in the house. Of course the prankster still messes with our kitchen clocks from time to time, nothing unusual. But then as we started bringing things for the baby into the house like diapers, clothes and her crib I noticed that there was a strong combination of both anxiety and anger in our home for a few days. I thought maybe I'm just being over emotional between out of whack hormones, getting ready for the baby and trying to get my oldest daughter Maggie into a special needs pre-k class which anyone with an autistic or down syndrome child knows that its a lot testing, evaluations, paper work and usually a waiting list so needless to say things have been a bit wired. Later that night as I was putting the bedding on the crib I felt a strong quick tug on my pj pants. I looked down expecting Maggie to be there needing a drink or to go potty but she wasn't. I peeked into her room and saw her sleeping soundly as her moon and star projector quietly hummed on her night stand. I walked over to switch off the tiny projector and cover her back up when I heard small shuffled footsteps going down the hallway towards the living room. I looked down the hall but saw only a short shadow round the corner and vanish, I thought it strange but didn't think about it too much seeing that nothing happened for the rest of the night. A few days later I was folding some baby clothes putting them away and decided to take a break to fix lunch for Maggie and I, while I was making our sandwiches I heard her say " No that's mean!" in Collin and my room. I automatically stopped what I was doing to go see what Maggie was into knowing that she normally says something along those lines when she knows she is doing something she shouldn't almost like she is getting onto herself before she does it. When I got to the bedroom some of the clothes were unfolded and sprawled out around the crib. Maggie picked them up and handed them to me, smiling " I'm a big girl!." I took them from her and folded them quickly asking her not to unfold them again and put them on our bed to finish later. She looked at me confused and followed me out of the bedroom, later that night I went to finish laundry only to find the baby clothes knocked off the foot of the bed with Collin's work hat and box cutter laying in the middle of them. Assuming he had simply knocked them over while changing and didn't bother picking up his things or the mess he made I was a bit miffed. I put his things away from work and sat down to finish folding the baby clothes when he walked in and sat down beside me. "What happened here?", he asked picking up a few outfits and folding them, putting them in a pile," I thought you already did these." I took a deep breath trying not to snap at him, "I did but You must have knocked them over when You were changing." He looked at me strangely and said " No they were still folded when I walked out." I explained to him that his hat and box cutter were in the middle of the clothes when I came in and he said that while he had left them on the foot of the bed he didn't knock over the clothes. I apologized and we went on with our night setting up a few more odds and ends all the while wondering how they got knocked over. Maggie hadn't been back in there since the first time it happened and Collin said he didn't do it... Clothes don't just grow legs and jump on their own, but I didn't see the point in dragging on the topic so I left it be and went to bed. I was restless that night and couldn't sleep something just felt off in the house. Maggie was resting and so was Collin so what could possibly be wrong? I went into the kitchen and got a drink when one of Maggie's toy trucks lit up and started playing music. I went into the living room and switched it off knowing that the only way it could turn on was if someone pushed the button, someone or something obviously wanted my attention its the only thing that added up. First the clothes and later the toy truck, I walked around the living room looking for anything else to be out of place but nothing was. I could feel eyes on me I just couldn't tell from what direction and as I scanned the room I couldn't see anything out of the norm. Not even a shadow I was tired and frustrated not knowing what was in my house. So finally I said, I know someone is in here with me and I know You were the one who messed with the baby clothes and turned on the truck can You please just show yourself or at least show me where You are? A few minutes went by and nothing happened I could still feel someone there watching me but I could not see them which only made me a bit more nervous. I once again searched the living room and dining room studying every corner and eventually every room of the house...Nada. So I turned the lights out and was about to try and lay down when I noticed Maggie's projector was flickering on and off through her partially opened door. Thinking she woke up and was playing with the switch I opened the door the rest of the way to find her sitting on her bed staring at her floor giggling she turned to me still laughing and said "Look girl " I walked around to the other side of her bed and only saw a small shadow sitting there. How could Maggie see her well enough to know that the child was a girl but I couldn't. I've rarely had difficulties seeing spirits but yet this one was mostly hiding from me, why? The more I tried to focus on the shadow the less I could see. " Bye " Maggie said waving at her wall I watched the small shadow pass right through her window. So I tucked Maggie in and went to bed myself knowing I had to be up early for a Dr. Appointment the next day. I tossed and turned only getting a few hours sleep I couldn't get the child like figure out of my head why would she come here was she simply curious of Maggie and why was she so curious/mischief concerning the babies things leaving the biggest question why wouldn't she let me see her? After a check up with my doctor I went home and did a thorough cleansing of the house opening all the doors, windows and dark spaces spreading positive energy all through the house. I had a little bit more peace of mind and went on with my day as usual. Nothing happened for weeks, until I was making our bed and I kept feeling eyes on me from the bedroom door when I turned around I saw a light short messy haired little girl with wide green eyes that seemed emotionless staring back at me wearing a simple light blue dirty dress with no pattern just a flat bib type collar and waist strings untied. No shoes and what looked like red clay stains on her hands, feet and part of her legs. Her thin lips formed a hard line as she studied my every move. I knelt down in front of her smiling, she quickly scooted away from me and just watched seeming to wait for something to happen. Almost like a scared animal backed in a corner but her eyes remained emotionless, thank you for letting me see you I said softly not wanting her to become frightened and leave can you tell me your name? She said and did nothing until she quickly reached for my hand which I willingly held out to her though I couldn't really feel her touch. She looked like she was trying to smell me though her eyes never left mine until she quickly dashed down the hall into Maggie's room almost as if she was looking for her but she wasn't there, Maggie was still at the sitters house. The little girl sat in the corner her knees tucked to her chest and just stared at me, I asked her if she wanted help moving on but she said nor did anything. She almost looked sad, once again I tried approaching her but this time she wasn't having it. She darted past me and when I went to look for her she was no where to be found. Months have passed and I have only saw her one other time sitting next to the crib looking into it but as soon as she saw me she vanished. I have asked Collin if he has seen her, but he said no.

I have dreamed of her once since then sitting in a barn hiding in what looked like a horse stall quickly eating something her wide eyes darting in every direction. She looked terrified but satisfied if that makes any sense, she snuck out and was gathering eggs from the chicken coop gulping down the yolk until she threw up. A booming male voice laughed cruelly " Thats what you get for being greedy, you little twit. " He grabbed her by the neck and rubbed her face in the vomit, kicked her in the side and left her laying there and I woke up, I'm not sure why she came to our house and why she hasn't come back since. I simply wish there was something I could have done to help her, who knows maybe she will come back I just hope one day some how she can find peace.

Allicat - You're quite right, keep rolling with the jokes because I've discovered that that is exactly what the comment by Captain Planet was Laugh

I came out very quickly in your defense without thinking twice as my daughter gave birth to my sixth grandchild (named Lia) on 10 April so at the moment I feel very motherly and grandmotherly! Please let me know when your baby is born Smile

Captain planet, Thank you for the warning though I do know that fresh crib bedding is highly important considering newborns get sick very easily. I plan on washing it before my baby is born. Thank you for your concern Smile

Maggie is my oldest daughter yes, but I do not have a middle child. I am currently pregnant with my second. Maggie rarely actually goes to the sitters house, usually only when I go to the doctor and her dad is working and only long enough for my appointment and then I go get her.

Maggie can definitely pick up words from others, though her vocabulary is limited compared to children her age she can form simple sentences. Social ques are hit and miss but with speech therapy and interactive groups she is doing better.

Good luck with your mullet remember to keep the balance between the party and buisness or things just look funky... And not in a good way. Lol

Mack, I agree Trump could definitely use a visit from captin planet, without causing a political debate here I believe he could use some help cleaning up some messes of his own and others.

Melda, Spotless is definitely the proper wording for it, her I'm pretty sure if I do much more cleaning my house will forever smell of lysol and cleaning supplies. Lol I thought I was OCD before considering Maggie is autistic and has to have structure and order, but add an infant into the equation and my cleaning and organization skills went to a whole new level. I appreciate your kind comments. I try not to let people get the best of me I just let it roll and go with the jokes.

Sincerely, Alli

Tweed - Have just gone into the profile page of Captain Planet. Do you have any idea of what is happening here? Would like to hear your take on this. ("May or may not be Tweed") Confused This doesn't seem like the type of gag you would pull.

What the hell is going on here? I have noticed that recently people are coming up with rather weird stuff.

Captain Planet - Perhaps you should credit Allicat with a modicum of intelligence.

What on earth gives you the impression that she would place her baby in a dusty crib? I have no doubt whatsoever that the crib will be spotless when the baby occupies it!

I sincerely hope you were simply cracking a joke, insensitive as it might be.

Go planet!

Step aside pollution, there's no room for you here.

Allicatt, putting bedding on an unused crib for a prolonged time can lead to dust settlement. Be sure to shake down those bed clothes before your baby arrives.
Do you have a middle child? You mentioned Maggie was your oldest daughter, it put my late 1980's VHS capacity into a tailspin.
How long does Maggie spend at the sitter's house? Can she pick up words and traits from others?

I need to go trim my mullet, but remember...

Bibilo, I'm hoping she will like it last night I set the horse out in the livingroom and let her know that the horse was just for her and told her that such a special girl deserves a beautiful horse and that nobody was going to take it from her, she could play with it anytime she wanted.

She wouldn't approach the horse or me while I was telling her about it she just stared at it from under the desk in the livingroom. (Her second favorite place in the house) but earlier this morning before Maggie got up I checked to see if the horse was still in the up right position I had set it in the two front hooves crossed and it wasnt.

It was laying on its side but in the same spot, so I think she at least checked it out. Smile

Spiritwaiting, I considered giving her a name but I'm not sure if it would be a good or a bad thing. I'm hoping that I will eventually learn her actual name but Your also right in the thinking that she may not have been called by a name very often usually abusers don't bother to call them by a birth given name.

Thank you, I just beileve that every child derserves love from someone. I may not have been there when she needed someone the most but she came to us for a reason. I can't just let her fade into nothing ignoring her. Every kid deserves a chance.

Allicatt,

How sweet! I can almost bet shes going to love that horse.

Give it few days and keep an eye out for her. She may take a little bit to come to the horse.

I want to suggest something but...
When I read Biblio's comment it had me thinking twice, because it makes sense.

I was going to suggest, giving her a name. Something also of her own. If she did indeed have an abusive father, and childhood she may not have been called by one, just a few bad nicknames. Name calling often goes along with abuse.

Im not sure if its a good idea, just a simple suggestion.

You are amazing for continuing to reach out to this precious spirit child. I hope all goes well.

Sincerely
Spiritwaiting

Alli:

A "rainbow tail and mane" sounds like just the thing! Be very clear with her that this is hers, and that no-one is going to take it away from her. You're giving her a gift so she has something to play with.

Lots of baby clothes are brightly-colored, so I suspected this initially drew her attention to them. If she can be made to feel accepted/welcome, there's much less chance she'll misbehave when your baby arrives.

Please, let us know how things progress.

Hey Bibilo,

I asked Maggie if she knows the little ghost girls name but unfortunately she dosent or she hasnt told me. I have asked the little girl her name a few times when I have saw her but she never talks. She usually just watches me from a distance or will only get within arms reach I wish I could learn her name I feel bad not knowing what to call her.

Which I'm still working on, closest she has gotten is the one time she took my hand and looked like she was smelling it.

I do remember the care bears and I wish I would have thought of that when Maggie and I got her a toy. They are still around just harder to find instead Maggie and I got her a white horse with a rainbow tail and mane. And I am going to set it out for her tonight and let her know that its just for her.

Im not sure honestly if she was " raised" by her father alone or if her mother just wasn't involved by choice or forced to leave her alone by the fathers orders. Maybe she even turned a blind eye knowing she had no power over the situation or didn't want to face reality. Either way this little girl went through alot.

I am hoping that I can find a way to help her soon because I am worried how she will react once my baby is born. While I have never had her be hostile towards Maggie nor myself or Collin I would rather be able to help her before things get really busy.

Sincerely, Alli

Greetings, Allicatt.

I'm pleased that you've briefly interacted with this ghost girl, and that you've demonstrated non-threatening behavior toward her. Your dream experience of her pain and suffering was heartbreaking.

I've got a few ideas/questions for you.
1. I recall that your daughter is on the spectrum; has she indicated knowing the ghost girl's name at all? (Have you asked her?)
2. I have the odd impression that a brightly-colored plush toy would be a good gift for a girl whose life was filled with misery and pain. (I thought of the "Care Bears" from the late-80s, early-90s era, but have no idea if they still exist; however, the colorful gift might be a source of pride for her, especially if you have your daughter help you to pick it out for her.)
3. Her reluctance to come forward and to speak with you **may** suggest that she was raised by a single abusive father, OR that her father was so domineering that her mother was a non-entity in the family dynamic. Showing care and compassion is the best you can do for her, but you really do want to get this metaphorical ball rolling before your baby is born.

Best,
Biblio.

Allicatt,

Ha yeah shes lookin for attention! Yeah I would give her at least one toy, to stay active with.

Just like a child she needs attention and things to keep them occupied maybe that'll help.

And once you do that, make sure you let her know messing with the babies things will not be accepted.

Make it very clear, but be gentle.

Good luck!

Sincerely
Spiritwaiting

Spiritwaiting, That is a great idea! Happy I actually considered that but wasn't sure how effective it would be. Its definitely worth a try, as you said maybe it will help her realize that she is welcome and maybe leave my babys things alone.

Considering about an hour or so ago I went in our bathroom and found baby soap all over the floor like it had been knocked over and just splattered. Maggie hasnt been in our bathroom today so that leaves one known explanation.

Allicatt,

I suggest you and your daughter discuss what type of toy the spirit girl may like to have around just for her.

Maybe a stuffed toy something that a little girl would enjoy.

Then even if she isn't around just speak out and say this is for you.

I'm sure that would let her know you are a good adult to be around and would calm her actions with the new babies clothes etc.

And just set it aside for her somewhere your daughter would leave it be.

Just a suggestion Smile
And thank you for replying back.

Sincerely
Spiritwaiting

Melda, It has definitely been a sad exsperience especially considering that I am a mother there is no excuse for mistreating a child no matter what. Maggie has shown signs of the little girl still being here, and while I have saw her from a distance quickly going into Maggie's room which is normally where she goes. She hasnt came up to me in awhile.

As odd as this may sound I try to be careful when I approach her because I don't want to scare her away. I'm still trying to think of the right way to help her she is so skittish.

The dream I believe was her way of showing me a part of her life, it was so vivid and while I almost always dream very vividly this just felt more like a memory if that makes any sense.

All in all this is a very fragile situation and I hope that I can find the key to helping her move on.

Sincerely, Allicatt

Allicatt - This must have been quite an emotional ride for you. You seem to have felt an overwhelming sense of pity for this little girl. I too feel so sorry for her. How miserable she must have been in life Sad . She seemed to exhibit some form of trust in you by taking your hand.

It seems that you have not seen her for some time. Has Maggie given any sign of the little girl still being present?

The dream also would have been very traumatic, fearing that this might have been what she experienced in life.

I do hope that there is some way to cross this little girl over to a very good place where she belongs Smile

Hello Everyone, Thank you for commenting.

Argette: I do apologize for that, I will work more on my writing structure in the future.

Babygoatpuller: That is correct I couldn't see her until I did a cleansing in my home and it is a high possibility that when I did the cleansing that it made her feel safer. I have purified my house since but I still haven't saw her. Though Maggie has, mainly at night but a few times while she has been playing, I do apologize for the structure of my story. I will work more on that.

Spiritwaiting: I do always try to be all of those things and much more, especially being a mother to a very sensitive little girl. I can definitely agree that she was drawn her in a big way by Maggie and myself. Though I think mainly Maggie seeing that the little girl is so hesitant to approach me, I think mainly its because she was so badly mistreated by adults when she was alive. Also it is a valid point that she could be jealous of the baby and her things not only because she is afraid that I won't spend as much time with her or try I should say while she is here but because she probably never had nice things, anything but sadly. I think that she is looking for love and at the same time afraid to reach out. I think if there was a way I could somehow gain her trust it would be easier to help her, question is how I could do that.

Mack: Thank you and I will work more on my writing structure, I again do apologize. You make a lot of valid points and I had not considered trying to look up kidnappings or murders to girls that fit her description. The difficult factor is knowing the year it happened and her age. While she appears to be about seven maybe eight its hard to know for sure, and unfortunately she dosent seem to talk. She honestly seems pretty much wild like, children that didn't have a lot of interaction or were mistreated as its sadly evident she was. I just hope that I can find a way to help her even if it is finding out what happened and helping her cross.

Sincerely, Allicatt

Hi Allicatt

Thanks for sharing your experience. You write really well and it was a vivid read.

Without sounding like a broken record, your recount WAS hard to read without paragraphs... Smile

This child may have honed in on your family as it appears you you and your daughter have psychic abilities and she wanted to interact with you, or she used to live there and is in some kind of limbo state due to a violent / premature death?

I suggest you do some research around the history of your house and area and see whether there was a murder, or disappearance of a young child that fits the description of the one you saw and dreamed of. That may answer some questions.

Regards

Mack.

Allicatt,

From reading this, it seems you radiate a softer,kinder,gentler side of yourself. Not saying that your not normally, but because your a mother, she senses the love you project outwards.

And having a daughter probably around her age, is even better. She more than likely feels comfortable around your home, and that's why she comes and goes.

Maybe it could be from time to time, she gets a little jealous because she sees the new items for the baby and she feels it would take away the attention she seems to get when shes around.

Being she is a child it could very well be possible.

The dream and from my own experiences, feels more like a visitation for her. Maybe she let you see why she tends to back away from you when you want to reach out to her. Being that was possibly her life playing out.

Thanks for sharing

Allicatt-

Bear with me here as I'm going on a hunch. You couldn't see the little girl at first but then did a thorough cleansing of the house and a few weeks later, she shows herself to you as a little frightened waif. Then in your dream, you see things that quite frankly, put a knot in my stomach.

Do you think possibly that when you did the cleansing, she felt more secure about showing herself? Like maybe kept her tormentor at bay with the cleansing?

Have you considered doing another cleansing and perhaps opening another "window" for her to come through and maybe helping her to move on? Seems to me she's being held here by someone that may have put her in this situation and just needs some help getting out.

Like I said, just a hunch. You seem to know what you're doing and I think whatever you decide, it'll be the right thing.

Thanks for sharing and I agree with Argette, more paragraphs would make for an easier read.

Smile
