For all of those who wanted to see how HUGE I got - 40 lbs later, this is what I looked like the day I walked into the hospital to have Hudson. Lovely sight eh? Good thing you can't see the ankles.... Heres is Hudson the next morning. Already looking like a completely different baby! Thanks for all the visits! This is my sister in law Cami. She is awesome!
My darling sister Brenda, thanks for all you do for me!
My mom and the boys. My mother tackled watching the boys while we were in the hospital, thank you soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much! I love you!
My awesome Dad that my boys just adore!
Abbie, Grannie, Stan and some more kids! Thanks for the support!
Me and my 3 boys! Chris should be in this picture so it could by Me and my 4 boys!
Morning after, still have that beautiful swollen face!
So our sweat Hudson Chris Coats came tonight around 6pm. He weighed 8lbs 5oz and he was 20 1/2 inches long. He has dark hair and he's a doll! It was an easy delivery. I got all checked in around 10:30am, pit around 12:30, epidural 3pm, water broke at 4:45 and baby at 6pm. Could it get any easier????? Anyways I will post some more pictures later!!!
Yesterday I went in for my final prenatal apt. before the baby comes. I'm now dialated 2 and a "wiggle" she says and I thinned 70%. So moving right along! I tested positive on the group b strep test, not such a good thing so I am scheduled for 5:30am on next Thursday morning to get the antibiotic flowing through my system. Has anyone else tested positive for this? Does it suck? Anyways, wish me luck!!! And I am delivering at Ogden Regional so I expect to see visitors please!!!!!!
So going to LAVA hotsprings over the 4th has been a tradition in my family for years but everyone slowly stopped coming, but I have made it a tradition with my family, Abbie and T and Cody and Kristen for the past 2 years, and it's been sooo fun! Here we are night of the fireworks and let me tell you Bridger LOVED the fireworks this year! He just sat in his chair watching them the entire time! Sucker in hand, quite content, and as good as ever! The 3 amigos, Avery, Dillan and Cord.
Check out my sparklers Mom!!!
Once again, the 3 amigos!
Enjoying the camp fire!
Bridger turned into the camping trailor door natzi (spelling?). He had to have complete control over that door the whole time! That was his nitch for this trip anyways!
And he loved coming in and out of Avery's tent! He had a blast this trip!
Well I went to the doctor yesterday and had one of my weekly checkups. It's no fun to see how much weight you've gained! But at least I can say I'm on track to NOT exceed my normal 40 lbs I gain with each pregnancy!!! I'm dialated to a 2, and this baby is already measuring 7lbs 14 0z. HUGE!!!!!! Bridger was 8 lbs 13 oz, So she said I'm probably going to have an even bigger baby. I'm scheduled a week early from my due date, so if I don't come early July 23rd is the big day!!! I'm VERY uncomfortable right now and pretty much waddle like a duck! Pretty Site. Oh and YES, I do have cankles at the moment, that's even prettier! Love summer pregnancies!!! Wish me LUCK! I'll update again after my next week apointment.
Last Saturday I had a Hoskins family Reunion at Downata pool in Downy Idaho. The funny thing is, is Chris lived here for a couple years while his parents managed the pool! So it was kind of fun to see what Chris grew up doing for a while! Here is Chris and I, and NO!!!! You can not see the full picture or you might get really scared of my BIG belly!!!!!
Bridger LOVED watching people coming out of the slide, he would just giggle really loud every time someone came out!
Here is my cute sister Brenda! Just have to brag for her that she has lost some serious weight in the past year and she looks great!!!!!! Her daughter Baylee and Cord just watching the slides too!
Here is Cord and Ethan.
Baylee and Bridger. Bridger LOVED this part of the pool, and of course I did too because I didn't have to worry about him drownding in water! But it was really funny because the water would come off and on and every time it turned off Bridger would stick his head down at the hole and yell at it and most the time it would come out and spray him right in the face!! I loved watching it.
Last Wednesday I held a Fathers/Daughters Activity Days with the girls and we had a great time!!!! I was a little nervous of how it would turn out and if the fathers would be willing to do things I had planned for them to do, but it was a success! The girls had to learn how to tie a tie all by themselves.... (Oh and of course Cord was in the thick of the whole thing!!!) Daddy's had to paint their daughters fingernails...
Daughters had to shave their daddy's face with shaving cream and a popcycle stick....
Daddy's had to braid their daughters hair. And yes, this is Chris. One of the girls's dad couldn't come so I volunteered my sweet husband to be her daddy and he did great!!!
