That's a different thing , it is called sleeping paralysis. In those dreams I can't get up and barely see things , my hands are gone , I can move them but can't see them. I had a dream inside a dream and it was nice to have that. In the main dream I was sleeping and had a dream about 2 girls from my classroom , they talked with me. then I woke up , told my brother about my dream and he knew what I dream. Then dady comes home , give us candies , my sister gets something and I run after her , asking her to give me what she got...

Yup. They actually have a name... they're called "False Awakenings", and they're pretty common. At least, for me they are. I have one almost every week. I'm not entirely sure what causes them, though lucid dreaming (being aware that you're dreaming) does seem to generate more of them. The weirdest false awakening I ever had was one where I got up, went to the bathroom, and decided that the toilet needed cleaning. So I got a toilet brush and I scrubbed and I scrubbed and it only seemed to be getting worse. Finally I realized that I just wasn't awake. lol

In the past I sometimes had a dream in a dream, but I haven't had that kind of dreams recently. I especially remember one dream that I had. I dreamed that I woke up and discovered that I had overslept and that I had missed an important exam. I was very angry at myself I knew that I was in trouble, because I had missed that exam. I thought that the exam was real and that I was awake, but I was still dreaming. Then I woke up (still in my dream) and I discovered that I didn't oversleep and that I wasn't going to miss my exam anyway. I was happy and I thought that I was awake and that the exam was real. Then I woke up (this time I really woke up) and I discovered that there was no exam.
