Fetuses Can Dream

With so much sleeping, it stands to reason that the fetus can also dream. Studies have shown that when fetuses in the third trimester are showing signs of going through REM sleep, also known as rapid eye movement. 

Technology has been able to detect the way your eyes move behind eyelids versus how they move when the eyes are closed. Did you know the brain cycles back from REM sleep to non-REM sleep? The research states that this can happen when babies are around 32 weeks, meaning that at this age, they can dream while they are catching some Zs.
