I just feel inspired to bare my testimony on here. I have a few things on my mind that I am so grateful for, and feel like I should share them.
I want everyone to know that I have a strong testimony of the gospel. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the TRUE church! I am proud to call myself a "Mormon."
I have a testimony of going to the Temple. Twice in my life has going to the temple totally changed my life, and blessed me with children. The first time was when I was 19. I was praying and praying to have children. I was not getting pregnant as fast as I wanted. So I went to the temple with David (my ex). In the Celestial room, a temple worker, that had no idea who I was or the reason I went to the temple (I went to pray to have a child), came up to me, and said "I am just getting inspired to let you know that you will have children sooner than you know." He never met me before, never had a conversation with me, had no idea that I had no children, or I even went to the temple praying for a child. But he let me know that I will have children sooner than I know. Shortly after that, I got a blessing, and in the blessing, it said the exact same words. "You will have children sooner than you know." 6 months later, my two wonderful little boys were given to me! Kody was 6 years old, and DJ was 4 years old. Having a 4 and 6 year old is a lot sooner than I knew! But they were mine. I have now received blessing saying that they were preordained to me. These boys did not come from my body, but they are 100% mine! They are now 13 and 14 years old. I love them to death.
San Diego, CA Temple

Going to the temple blessed up again recently. I have been praying and praying for a baby. But Rocky and I have been slacking off on going to the temple as much as we should be going. When we went together, we never had a question in our hearts of having a baby. But Rocky and I were debating on continue trying to conceive a baby, or adopt another child. We started the process to adopt, but got to a point that we needed to choose one, we do not have money to do both. So we went to the temple, praying and asking which way we should go to bring another child into our home. A week after we went to the temple, after me trying to conceive for 9.5 years, and Rocky and I for the last 2.5 years, I found out that I was pregnant. I honestly think that the Lord was waiting for us to humble ourselves before Him and bring it to Him in HIS house (the temple). A week after we went to the temple to have a baby or adopt, I found out that I was pregnant. I just think that is amazing! Now I am not only pregnant, but pregnant with TWINS!

Salt Lake City, Utah Temple

The last thing I was to talk about, cause I could go on forever on stories and blessings, and testimonies, but for now a testimony about the scriptures. With Rocky being gone for school, I struggle a little with the boys. They seem to listen to Rocky more than they listen to me. But what can your except from two teenage boys? LOL. I want to start doing better and do scripture study again every night with the boys. Kody told me that he did not want to read with us, because he already read everyday in Seminary with his class. I almost forced him to sit anyways, like I did yesterday. But I tried to let the spirit guide me on this one. I said "Kody the prophet has asked us to read scriptures and pray together everyday as a family as well as do it individually. If the prophet is asking that of us, who is asking the prophet to tell us?" Kody replies "God." I ask "So will you read with us?" Kody replies, "Since God asked us too, I will." The difference from yesterday and today? Yesterday, Kody sat there and refused to read. Today, Kody not only read, but he taught us things he learned in seminary with the things we were reading. We all got along better, and it really invited the spirit into the home. It is just a different feeling in the house tonight. Because we were able to read scriptures today as a family. We were able to pray together as a family. We are happier, as a family. I am grateful that the scriptures were able to do that for us!

The Holy Bible and the Book of Mormon

I just want everyone to know that I love my brother, Jesus Christ, and my Father in Heaven! They have done so much for me! I want everyone to know that I have a testimony. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

12.5 Weeks Pregnant with TWINS

I have some friends that want me to post some pictures of my belly. So this is me 12.5 weeks pregnant with twins. I have not decided yet if I just look fat, or actually look pregnant. LOL

I just wanted to say that we are really excited for the whole twin thing. I will admit that I am so nervous, because I planned on having A baby for a long time. But having twins, there is a lot of things I need to rethink of how I am going to do things. I have bought some books about twins. And have asked many of my friends that have had twins, lots of questions. I am just full of questions right now.

Rocky said that the moment he found out that they were twins, it was the happiest day of his life! He is going to be such a great daddy. Rocky's mom and sister even started to plan on coming down to Utah for the birth of the babies. They were not going to come at first, but once they found out it was twins, they want to be here for it.

I just hope everything goes smoothly too. I guess I am being a mom, and am starting to worry about a lot of things. Like what happens if something goes wrong, and they are born early. That is a lot of the reason I even changed hospitals, once I heard they were twins. Before I was going to deliver in a small hospital in Payson, UT. Now I am planning on delivering at Utah Valley Regional Hospital in Provo, UT. They have a great NICU for premature babies. But hopefully I will be able to deliver at full term. Which is interesting that full term for twins is 37 weeks. But I guess most twins are born about 35 weeks. So that means I should have them around the end of June or the beginning of July, instead of July 27.

On Feb 7,2011, my doctor scheduled me for an extra ultrasound. All the signs point to that they are fraternal twins. They are in two different sacs, I have a cyst on each ovary, etc. But in the last ultrasound she could not tell if they were in one placenta or two. So we are going to find that out. I will almost be 16 weeks then, and am hoping they will be able to tell me what the sexes are. But we will not know until I get there. They maybe positioned weird, too small, etc. But I hope they will be able to tell me. If not, I will be getting another ultrasound at 19 or 20 weeks which should be the beginning of March. That is when most people find out the sex.

I guess I am just blabbering. There is just so much on my mind. I will keep everyone posted though. :)
