The cause of this dream may be physiological: heartburn or indigestion. From an emotional standpoint, it represents something that you can't stand anymore and wish to get away from. The interpretation varies according to the size of the abdomen. Thus, a heavy one shows that the subject is conscious of her personal or social duties; a slim one symbolizes losses or economic issues; if it is growing, it is because the loads get heavier by the day and you can't foresee how to deal with them; and a wrinkled one predicts betrayal. If the abdomen is bleeding there is a chance of an accident or tragedy within the family; and if it belongs to a child, infection may occur shortly. It also has sexual connotation. On a woman, it predicts longing for maternity. According to traditional folklore, dreaming of your own abdomen is a sign good things are on the way, but you will have to work for them. Likewise, it predicts infidelity. An image of a worn abdomen warns against possible lies.
