It has actually happened to me several times. My parents are divorced now and when me, my mom, and my little brother moved to Maryland after the separation, 3 nights in a row, I had nightmares about my father dying or us growing very far apart. When I woke from them, I wasn't sure if it was reality or just a nightmare. The problem was, I wasn't able to just go see my father lying in bed or sitting at the table. I began to panic and was sobbing, and it took a little while for my mother to calm me down and convince me it wasn't real.
I also had a nightmare about my boyfriend going into the army. Looking back, the way the dream was set up really made no sense to me. But the morning I woke up from that nightmare, I called him and I told him about the nightmare and asked him, "Baby, you're not going into the army, right?" I was scared to death! He said, "I don't think you really have to worry about something like that. I don't think they're going to pick me to go into the army.
LOL, it terrifies me when I have nightmares that I wake up from and don't know if they're real or not. But it's definately happened to me before.
