The title of the book describes exactly what this book is about: two women meet, fall in love (after meeting twice; the first meeting didn't take), and decide to have a family together. Sarah, who has wanted a baby for a while, decides that she wants to try to get pregnant, but has trouble conceiving; once she does, she loses the baby. Kristen, who also wants a family with Sarah, decides to try to get pregnant as well, in effect doubling their chances of having a child. But - surprise - Sarah an ...more

A slow but funny book about two women's lives together before babies and becoming first time parents (both are expecting at the same time)...the ladies seem to have a great relationship and love for their children...Not a best seller, but worth the buy for the laugh...i literally laughed out loud at times. I would recommend reading other reviews and the first chapter on amazon for free and decide for yourself. If you are looking for a quick is a book for you.

Eh, whatever. Not the worst, but not exactly compelling. I'm sure the intent wasn't to come off privileged, whiny, spoiled, and narcissistic...but that's what I got from it. Seems like most of the book is Kristen and Sarah recovering from the complete and utter shock that when they randomly decided to have a baby, the universe didn't instantly procure one for them. I wish this had been better.

These writers were so wealthy and so excited to dress their kids in pink and blue (they <3 gender norms for children!!!) that it was hard for me to relate to them, and a lot of the book was about their lives pre-children rather than about pregnancy or parenting, but it is always nice to get a window into someone else's experience, written in a fairly genuine and compassionate way.
Mildly interesting story about a lesbian couple where both women became pregnant at the same time. I might have liked this better if I hadn't found one of the women so irritatingly shallow. Sarah spent a month feeling miserable because the US technician couldn't tell the sex of her baby?! Please.

Can't resist a tale of two is an executive at Real Simple & the other is in Antigone Rising - they both end up pregnant at the same time. Not very well written (particularly the quotes of supposed dialogue), but it was indeed hard to put down.

read this while I was pregnant - what's better for putting my situation in perspective? Imagining how difficult things would be if my partner was also pregnant (not possible for Josh, but still). It's a pretty incredible story and it kept me entertained.

A great book about two amazing women, their family and friends....Through some heartache came two very beautiful "twins" They both have two amazingly full lives I am just curious if one or two more little ones may be in the future.

Adorable quick read. Any Antigone Rising fan will love hearing band background. Their love story isn't mushy and their infertility issues are something any woman, gay or straight, can relate to.

I felt that it dragged at times but also was laughing out loud. I liked the style of going back and forth between the authors and felt that this contributed to the humor and intimacy of the text.

Quite interesting and evocative. Sometimes the book was difficult to continue through, especially toward the end when the book sort of ran out of steam, but overall it was decent.

Quite the page turner! Although a fascinating story, it definitely proved my argument why my partner and I should NOT be pregnant at the same time ;)

A little contrived (the story and how it actually happened) but a good read nevertheless and you really feel for the characters.

I really wanted to like this book. It's a sweet story & a fast read but not as compelling as I had hoped.
