One night when I was a little lad, about 8 years old, I was sleeping in my room. The time was around 2:00-2:45 AM and I was awaken by something.
I remember very vividly that I couldn’t move a muscle, I could move my eyes and open my mouth to breath and felt a small pressure on my chest but I could not move nor yell for help.
After what felt to be a long lasting 30 seconds I heard a scratching noise from behind me, following that noise I heard a very scary scratchy old ladies voice and it said 4 words, “Your mom is pregnant”. That moment scared me so bad that 10 years down the road, I still remember the sound of the voice.
Later the following morning, my mom pulled me into the living room and say me down to “have a chat”. She explained to me that I am going to be a big brother and all of that stuff. My heart sunk. I didn’t talk to her about my experience until the next week, she didn’t think much of it.
Later after that night I would lay in bed and see what looked to be a shadow figure standing at my door, he looked like a solider in combat fatigues. They never did any harm, just stood there. When I would move to try and get a different angle, it would disappear. That lasted about a week.
Is this paranormal or was I just effected by high anxiety? Thank you.
