What are possible meanings for dreams of beds?
Your bed is a personal and intimate place. Therefore, dreams featuring your bed can be about subjects close to you.
For example, a teenager dreams that he finds a dead rat in his bed. He then yells at his parents, who are not actually pictured in the scene. That fact is a big clue. The dead rat symbolizes feeling betrayed by his parents, and it’s shown in his bed because his parents are very close to him. His reaction of blaming his parents points right to the meaning.
A bed can symbolize secrets. It’s where you think about things you don’t want others to know about, or don’t have time to think about during a busy day. A made bed can indicate that those secrets are safe, whereas a messy bed can indicate that your secrets have been, or will soon be, revealed—especially if the blankets or sheets are pulled down or off. The idea extends beyond secrets to include anything intimate or personal that you want to keep private.
Your bed is where you dream, and dream in another sense means hope, aspire, and imagine. Your hopes and aspirations are personal to you, perhaps something you think about when in bed.
A bed is where you rest and sleep, and it can be associated with those needs.
It’s a place retreated to for privacy, to be alone with your thoughts.
A bed is associated with the cycles of life, opening many possibilities for use as dream symbolism. Life begins with conception in a bed. Birth often happens in a bed. A large portion of your life is spent in bed. And life often ends in bed.
The symbolism of making a bed can relate to the phrase, “You made your bed, now lie in it.” It means deal with the mess you made. You create your own situations and circumstances in life. It can mean you are straightening up your life.
Restlessness in bed can mean something is troubling you, or you feel dissatisfied. What keeps you up at night or disturbs your sleep?
Disrespecting your bed can be a sign of feeling disrespected. For example, someone peeing on your bed can be a way of saying he or she disrespects you. Peeing on your own bed can indicate you disrespect yourself. Peeing on someone else’s bed is a graphic portrayal of how you feel about that person or what he or she represents.
Pushing someone out of your bed can symbolize that you want that person out of your life, away from you. In romantic relationships, this is a sign that your feelings about your partner are changing for the worse. Or it can be a way of saying you need your space.
Because beds are where people have sex, in dreams they can be used to create symbolism related to your sex life and related subjects. For example, a dream featuring a bed with sheets so tight the dreamer can’t get into the bed is about the dreamer’s being too tight when it comes to sex. Nervousness and discomfort are hindering her sex life. See the entry for Emotions for another example of a dream featuring a bed.
An oversized bed can symbolize overemphasis on sex, an expansive sex life, or generous attitude toward sex, whereas an undersized bed has the opposite connotations. Then again, an oversized bed can symbolize a big secret, so as with all symbolism, look at the symbolism of the bed within the context of the dream-story and together with other details.
Dirty bedding can symbolize perceptions of sex as dirty, discontent with yourself, or living in squalor. It can mean your life or mind is in squalor. It can indicate a variety of “dirty” feelings, such as guilt, jealousy and envy, or a filthy mind.
A burning bed can symbolize burning up with desire or anger.
To dream about a marriage bed when you’re single can indicate desire to discover your sexuality, or to have a committed relationship.
The condition of the bed you share with your partner can symbolize the state of the relationship and characterize the intimacy level. It can symbolize the state of other commitments you have made—to your job, your friends, your children, a cause, an ideal, a principle.
An empty bed can symbolize the absence of someone important from your life, or a general feeling of loneliness. It can symbolize lack of aspirations or ambitions. You need something to look forward to. That makes you want to get out of bed in the morning.
Dreaming about being in bed with a stranger can express the feeling that you don’t really know someone close to you, or that someone is acting out of character. Or the stranger can symbolize an aspect of yourself that is unfamiliar or estranged yet still so close to you that it’s in your bed, figuratively. The idea extends further to include situations that feel strange or unfamiliar. For example, you find yourself in a circle of people you don’t feel comfortable with, or a business situation goes into uncharted territory. You’re not sure about the people you are “in bed” with. See: Strangers
The rectangular shape of a bed can be symbolism. See: Rectangles
Sleeping in a bed that’s not yours is known to spark vivid dreams.

I just had a dream that felt years long, and now I don't know whats real.
Sorry for the confusing title but I just woke up and felt like I needed to post this somewhere to see if anyone has ever had a similar experience to this.
Okay, so my dream started out with me meeting a girl. She was amazing, and we had an instant connection. we started dating and went through the normal highs and lows of a relationship, as all couples do. Overall, our relationship was amazing so when we found out she was pregnant, even though we were young we were both so excited to be parents. Her parents lived nearby and offered to let us move in so they could help with the pregnancy and we could both stay in college. The next nine months seemed to fly by, and the pregnancy seemed easier than it should have been. I chalked it up to the fact that my girlfriend was an amazing strong woman and that her parents were there to help us out.
Now this is when things begin to get weird. I don't know why, but i was not with my girlfriend when she was at the hospital giving birth. I had something else to do even though being with her should have been my first priority. After she returned home she called me to let me know we had a son and to come over immediately. It was odd that I wasn't there in the first place, and even odder that even in the dream, I couldn't remember what I had just been doing. It was almost as if I blacked out, and when I came to, I was in the car driving home to see my new son. I shook it off and told myself I was just nervous to be a dad. As I was driving, I suddenly didn't know where I was. I had lived here for 9 months, but for the life of me I couldn't remember how to get home. It felt like I was driving around lost for hours and then, as if I blacked out again, I was outside my house being greeted by my girlfriends' parents as I walked up to the house. The strange thing was that the house didn't seem familiar, and neither did my girlfriend's parents.
Throughout all of this, I never questioned it and kept telling myself that I was just nervous and I was freaking myself out. Maybe I just needed to sit down for a minute and breath. I never even made it to the house, I just sat down on the steps leading up to the door and tried to calm myself down. I pulled out my phone and had a text message from an unknown number. I assumed it was a text from someone congratulating me and my girlfriend, but when I opened it, it was just an image of three 20 something year old boys who I had never seen. I was confused, but something about the picture seemed oddly familiar, so I just sat there and stared at it. As I sat on the porch staring at the photo the world went silent. I never heard a baby crying and never once did anyone try to retrieve me from outside to bring me in. It was almost as if everything in the world disappeared besides me and that photo.
I must have spent days staring at that picture, and finally I decided to text the number back and ask who they were and why they sent me that photo. I wrote out the text and hit send and suddenly the picture went blurry. I looked around and nothing in the world seemed real anymore. Nothing seemed familiar. I felt like I was in a place I had never seen before. I looked back down at my phone and the blurriness of the photo began to clear up and I was left looking at a photo of me, my real-life brother, and my real-life best friend, standing in my real-life backyard. I stopped for a second, coming to the realization that everything was over. I immediately tried to run into the house to see my son but the second I opened the door to the house, I woke up.
My first instinct when I woke up was the check my phone for the photo but of course it wasn't there. The only thing on my phone was a text from my real girlfriend. he weird thing is, I can no longer picture my dream girlfriend's face, so for all I know, it could have been my real girlfriend. As I finish writing this, the dream is beginning to fade, and I can realize all the things that didn't make sense, but while I was in it, I would have bet anything it was real. I feel as if I just got a few years of my life back, as I woke up the same 22-year-old who went to bed the night bore.
My only regret? I never got to see my son.

Strange man in son’s dream told him not to tell anyone
The other night my seven year old son came into my bed around 1am saying he had a bad dream. Naturally I asked what it was about. He said in his dream he woke up and a guy in a suit and hat *but he couldn’t see his face* was sitting at the end of his bed and whispered “Dont tell anyone” my first reaction not even thinking, half asleep, jokingly was “Well why did you tell me?? Now he’s gonna be after me too” ......... didn’t turn out as funny as I thought...... where now he’s been in my bed every night since.

So uh, I just peed the bed.
I'm a 30 year old man. I was having a dream where my brother and I were waiting in line at a supermarket. We had to make the flight and it looked like we'd be running late. I decided to go to the bathroom and started peeing. I immediately woke up and realized I had actually fucking peed. Not alot, but enough where it got onto the sheet through my pants.
What the fuck lol.

I lived inside a dream so long I killed myself
I went through such a long period in a dream it was so hard. In the dream I was a stay at home dad and my wife was a journalist. She had been investigating gangs in a prison. At one point point a riot had broken out and the leader of a gang was willing to do an interview during a transport. During this one of the gangs had a prison break plan, and my wife was in the middle, during which she was shot in the stomach. My consciousness was teleported there while gun fire rained down around us. She died in my arms. The following weeks after the funeral her parents wanted custody of our daughter because I refused that it was real. I would say things like “ill wake up soon” and “you cant take my anchor to this world” when it was all said and done I lost. So I hung myself from the balcony of the stairwell. As soon as I began to slip in and out of death I saw myself sleeping in a bed and I screamed “WAKE UP, PLEASE WAKE UP. THIS ISN’T REAL” when I woke up I scrambled into my kids room to make sure she was there. I called my wife to ask if she was ok and begged her to come home. To this day that still haunts me and causes me to not want to sleep.
