At the beginning of April I was driving in the car with the kids when from the back seat Broc says "Mom, I want another baby to come to our family." I wasn't quite sure how to respond to him because my thoughts immediately went to, well if you only knew how long we have wanted this too and if you only knew all the crazy fertility drugs that I have been taking to try to get this to happen! So instead of blurting all of that out I said "Well Broc, we really want that to, maybe if you pray and ask Heavenly Father for a baby to come to our house that would help" His response was a simple "ok Mom, I will." We then had a cute conversation about what kind of baby we would want and that having twins would be fun because then we would get two instead of one. So that night when we had family prayer it was his turn and he blessed us that we would have a boy baby and a girl baby come to our family. For next few weeks both he and McCall prayed for this exact thing and not more than 3 weeks later I was pregnant and now some 4 months later we were having twins! As I shared this story with Dr. Sorenson she began to cry and it was then that I was so grateful that my Heavenly Father answered not only my prayers but the prayers of my children! I called John from the doctors office and he said "Well were you expecting anything different?" and you know I truly wasn't. From the moment I became pregnant I knew that there were two and to myself had always prayed for the babies instead of baby. The hard thing was not knowing what they were and for that we would have to wait another three weeks! It was a great day and so fun to be able to share it with our friends and family and to finally answer the question as to why I had been so sick.

Yahoo...We're Having Two!!
By August I was finally getting a handle on the nausea and throwing up and on some days starting to actually feel good but then I started to have pre-term labor. I was only 19 weeks, but hadn't seen a doctor yet because of the whole insurance issue, so at the insistence of EVERYONE, I went to see my old OB, Dr. Sorenson. On Tuesday, Aug 6, 2008 I went to my appt. She checked me and everything was normal and then she said "Let's do a quick ultrasound just to check your due date" this is exactly what she did when I was pregnant with McCall so no big deal. I lay on the table and she started the ultrasound. My first question was "How many are there?" She scanned back and forth and said "Well there's a head and..... There is a second head!" I couldn't believe it! I started to tear up and the nurse started jumping up and down with excitement! Dr. Sorenson said "you seemed bigger than 19 weeks, but I didn't want to say anything until I had done the ultrasound." It was then that I started to really cry as I shared my story with Dr. Sorenson.
