Yes, you can. I've had this happen once with a DILD(Dream induced Lucid Dream). I became semi-lucid, knowing I was in a dream, but not fully aware, so I ended up forgetting not even a minute later! I would suggest, when doing Reality checks, make sure your stopping to ask yourself "Am I Dreaming?" and actually look around, examine things. This should help you to get a more lucid reaction, because your actually taking the time to make sure. Hope this helped somewhat! Good Luck!
