Was this sleep paralysis?

I don't remember exactly how old I was, about 5-7. I had a dream where me and my little brother were sitting on a wall, these small weird spider/alien things were crawling towards us from both directions and up the wall, then I woke up and I couldn't move at all. I tried to shout "Mummy!" nothing came out. I was so terrified, you have no idea. I still remember exactly how scary it was and I'm 14 now (therefore a lot of time has passed).

It happened again a few nights later, don't remember what I was dreaming about that time, but I remember thinking "This again!" I couldn't move, couldn't talk, just as scary.

Both times I just fell back asleep after a couple of minutes, and I'd forget to tell my parents the next morning.

I don't remember having any hallucinations.
