Not last night but the night before I had a beautiful dream… I dreamed that I was full term and ready to give birth to our third blessing. I was at the hospital laying in bed ready to bush littlest out. All the nurses were there and my doctor was there and Ray was right next to me standing on my right side. I finally starting pushing baby out and after two pushes littlest was out! I looked down to see what he/she was and I seen this little thing between its legs but wasn’t 100% sure if it was what I thought it was and sure enough my doctor says, “It’s a boy!” Ray couldn’t believe it, he said, “let me see!” so after seeing it he believed it. When my doctor first said, “its a boy,” I said, “Praise God!” for this new little man in my life. They handed me littlest and he was absolutely Beautiful! He looked like daddy! He was so fair and had daddy’s green eyes and light brown hair. I remember thinking in my dream, wow… he didn’t get the blue eyes like my girls. I remember then saying two names one that wasnt what we are planning to name him and then correcting myself with the name we are planning to give if it is a boy. I held him up and said, “Joseph… I mean… Joshua Ryder!” I remember then my mom being on my left side and I grab her arm saying, “mom its a boy, its a boy!” I was so excited, so grateful, so blessed, and littlest was absolutely precious! This dream felt so real that when I woke up I was a little bumbed that it was all just a dream, but hopefully in Jesus name this dream will come to pass!! All in His will! That morning I told Ray about the dream (of course!) and called my mom and told her too. I couldn’t stop thinking about this little guy in my dream all day. I told Ray the dream like two or three times lol! It sure was A Sweet Dream!
Movement: Yes, little flutters here and there
I will be 12 weeks tomorrow, so my due date is July 20th!! We had our doctors appointment today and it went great! We got to see little peanut and his heart beat. It is such a wonderful thing seeing this little person grow inside of you. I am in awe of God and his creations. I wish I had that ultrasound monitor at my house so I can see the little peanut move and just to look at my littlest baby whenever I wanted. It’s crazy how in-love you are with the little peanut growing in your belly and not yet held him/her. We are so excited and thankful for littlest!!!!!!!
