Our new lil' Valentine!!!!

Proof that I'm in the first trimester of my 3rd pregnancy....
1) Limp hair (CHECK!)
2) Nausea and Exhaustion (CHECK! CHECK!)
3) Gained 5 pounds already (CHECK! and let's add an additional booooo! On that note though, be prepared...I get HUGE when I'm pregnant! The first 5 pounds has come from having no energy to even take a walk, and having to eat every hour in order to keep the nausea at bay. I'm just hoping that I won't gain an additional 45 pounds with this pregnancy!)
4) Already in to maternity clothes (sadly...CHECK!)

Baby Eason #3 is strong, and active (we had an ultrasound and saw him/her kicking it's legs and flipping all over the place...the only hope I have that this child will be quiet and shy is that the doc has consistently struggled to find the heart beat - he told me this morning it's as if the baby is hiding! Fingers crossed that our 3rd child is...how do I say it?...a bit more passive and calm? lol! I'm 11 weeks along and my guess? It's a boy...I feel just like I did with Shep - fat and ugly! lol! His pregnancy wasn't all that fun - whereas Rauly's was beautiful from start to finish. So...like I said,...I'm thinkin' it's a boy - plus the heart beat is sticking around 145 (which is what Shep's avg range was). Do I care at all though what it is? Absolutely not - we just pray he or she is healthy and strong!!!

Oh, and did I mention that Chad and I are already 100% over-the-top in love with this little baby?!?!?!

You look adorable! and you're not huge. It's your third baby you're just going to show early. I'm so excited!

I can't wait to share this wonderful journey with you. If you need anything you know where to find me. Even if you just need me to run though Chic-Fil-A on the way into the school I would so do that for you :)

Love ya!

Congratulations! I know that you are both so excited. Yes, your body doesn't remember 10 weeks pregnant it remembers 40 weeks. I think you look great and I hope that you get your energy back really soon. Take care of yourself, I know that is easier said than done when you have two other kids to chase around. I will let you know how the three kid thing works in just a few weeks.

Congrats to the Eason 5! I'm excited for you, Chad and the kiddos ... Good luck with the nausea - I hear that it helps to eat chick-fil-a, shop at Big Lots, and take naps. Even if it doesn't help nausea, that would be one good day.

Morgan Holt said...

Congrats Lindsey! SO excited for your family. Take care of yourself. :)

Michael and Hannah said...

You look adorable!! And the only reason you are already in maternity clothes is because you're so stink'n skinny that you get to wear these skinny-people form-fitting clothes when you're not preggo. I can seriously wear my regular tops into the early 3rd trimester when I'm pregnant... that's exactly how much of my body I want people to see in my regular clothes! Glad I can tell people your big news now!

Kevin and Laura said...

Congrats! And I totally know about having to snack constantly for nausea...it's like feel like crap or gain more weight.....hummm gain more weight...hahahaha!! 52 pounds with the girls and 3 weeks earlier than expected...doc says I probably would have been close to 70 (gained 8 pounds during week 31:) But you look great and you know you will loose it girl.
Zofran helps some if haven't tried it already. I'm so excited for you guys!!

Chad and Lindsey Eason said...

Laura - you were carrying twins! And despite your 52 pound weight gain, you were still teensy-weensy!!! I'll have to check in to the Zofran...

Kristin said...

We are so excited for you guys! Can't wait to meet baby Eason! You all will be in our thoughts and prayers!

Rachael said...

Congratulations!!! We're so excited for you guys! I'm sure Rauly will make quite the little second mommy and Shepherd...well, he's old hat at being a big brother! We'll have to swap pregnancy stories...I'm 7 1/2 weeks along right now with our second! I haven't OFFICALLY posted it yet...waiting for our 1st u/s pics, but parents and a lot of the LR crew know. Glad to know I have a buddy going through the same thing!

Chad and Lindsey Eason said...

Rachael - congratulations!!! I had no idea! I'm not going to say anything on your blog just in case you're waiting to make the "official" announcement...I definitly know how that goes - waiting 11 weeks wasn't easy, and it was sooooo great to finally share the news. You're just a few weeks behind me, so we'll be in this together! :)

Jordashblack said...

Sara said...

Congrats! I'm sure my latest blog post was not encouraging at all! Sorry:/

Sara said...

Hey Lindsey! The Princess Breakfast was definitley worth it. You get to meet quite a few princesses without having to wait in line. The come around to your table. The food was also really good and it was all you could. And of course, just getting to go into Cinderella's Castle was exciting.
