She continued, "Doctors are closely monitoring both of us and trying to keep him on the inside for a little while longer to get stronger." Dreyer assured fans, however, that "all is well," sharing: "I'm in great hands and I have the best person to keep me calm and comfortable. Looks like we'll be getting to meet our littlest boy sometime this week…6 weeks early!"

"Guess he couldn't handle being left out of all the fun his brothers have been having!" she added of the little one on the way. "We'll gladly take any extra prayers you have 🙏🙏❤️❤️."

Dreyer's husband Brian Fichera also posted on Instagram Tuesday, sharing a photo of his wife sleeping in a hospital bed.

"A few extra sleepless nights on the pull out bed is more than a fair trade to make sure everyone is as safe and healthy as possible when it comes time [to] meet this impatient little guy," he wrote. "Son, if you have just half of your moms courage and general bad assery you're going to be something special."

Dreyer first announced she was pregnant with her third child in May. She and Finchera are already parents to two sons: Oliver George, 20 months, and Calvin Bradley, 4. She previously opened up about her journey to motherhood in a 2019 interview with PEOPLE, when she was pregnant with son Oliver.

Dreyer, who suffered a miscarriage before welcoming Oliver, opened up about preparing to use in vitro fertilization after struggling with infertility, only to find that she was already pregnant and would not need to begin the IVF process.

"I was just waiting for the phone call from Dr. Reichman, to tell me how much of each drug to use," she said. "Instead, when he called, he said, 'Well, you can't start IVF because you're already pregnant!' We were in complete shock. We couldn't believe it!"

Dreyer added, "By putting my story out there, I feel like the thousands of prayers and good wishes we received really made a difference," she says. "I knew it was in God's hands, and this is certainly an answered prayer."
