Vivid Dream!

Last night I had one of the most vivid dreams I have had since getting pregnant. It felt so real, I just had to share it with you all.

The dream started off with me receiving a call from the doctors office telling me the results of my blood work were in and that I could come pick them up. I drove to the office and picked up what I thought was going to be a envelope but much to my surprise it was 2 gift bags, one pink and one blue. The doctor explained to me that each bag contains 2 shirts rolled up in ribbon. I would have to open the shirts up one at a time to reveal if we were having a girl or boy. I got back in my car and started to drive to Casey. On the way I decided to go ahead and take a peak. The 1st shirt I opened was from the pink bag and it said "Daddy's Little Girl, CONGRATS". I about lost it... I was crying and so happy. I couldn't hold back the smile I had on my face, we were having a little girl. I finally pulled myself back together and went downtown to "open" the package with Casey. Before I found him, I decided to lay down in the middle of Main Street and watch the lights change from green to yellow to red. It was really odd because as I laid there, cars just went around me... like it was okay that I was in the middle of the street just laying taking everything in. I finally stood up and made my way to Casey. I handed him the bags and acted like I didn't know the gender. He opened a blue shirt, no, he opened a pink shirt, no, he opened the other blue shirt, no... and then the last pink shirt and he saw the "Daddy's Little Girl, CONGRATS" and smiled bigger than I have ever seen him smile before. We both looked up and there was a HUGE audience cheering us on... I did not recognize a single one of them!

Then I woke up!

Crazy, right?! Old Wives Tales say that whatever you dream you are having, you usually have the opposite, so this would mean we are having a boy!

After I told this dream to Casey, I could hear him smiling (we were on the phone) and I asked him what he was thinking and he said "Well, now I really want a daughter." He has been dead set on having a son since I met him almost 3 years ago... and now he wants a daughter!!!

I guess I am the only one of team blue now... Casey and Caleb are both dead set on having a girl.

We should have our results back from the doctor any day now and then will announce the gender on December 21st!

I finally ate meat again!!!

For the past 8 weeks or so, the smell of meat makes me want to barf. The sight of it makes me dry heave. The taste of it... well I have never been able to taste it. I have been living off carbs, that is when I am able to eat at all.

I went to the doctors yesterday and they told me I lost 4 pounds since my last visit. Here I was scared they were going to lecture me about my weight and I actually lost weight. Probably because I haven't been able to eat anything without throwing up.

Then today I had a craving for Chick-Fil-A... ODD!!!

I bought a chicken sandwich and waffle fries... it took me 2 hours to eat it, but I did!!! I ate the entire meal. I am so proud of myself!!!

Another good note, we will know the gender of the baby very soon!!! We will reveal if we will have a Cora Mae or a Dax Marshall on December 21st... so stay tuned!

The doctor says girl, Casey and I say boy, and Caleb is begging for a sister. We will see in a couple days... eek! I am so ready to buy new baby clothes either way!!!

Hope you are all doing great and thank you for baring with me the past couple weeks while I have been quite. Next week I start working out again and I am ready to start posting more. Bring on the 2nd trimester!!!
