Publishers WeeklyEllis and Henderson, respectively the VP of Marketing for Real Simple and a founding member of the female rock band Antigone Rising, detail how they met, fell in love, and felt, for the most part, content with life, but for one thing: they wanted children. While the experiences of their peers leads them to think that it will be easy, they discover that the process is actually much more difficult than they would have thought. When they try to double their odds by both attempting to get pregnant, the unthinkable happens-they do, within days of each other. Despite the ensuing chaos of simultaneous pregnancies, the end result is extremely rewarding. Henderson and Ellis play off of each other well in the book; their differing perspectives makes for an enjoyable read. While their focus is clearly on the pregnancies-and that narrative is solid-they could have spent more time establishing themselves and their relationship outside of their desire to have babies. But readers who share their enthusiasm for building a family will find a lot to like.
