i have been reading lately but not commenting too much, but I just wanted to say I'm so happy for you! And I cannot wait to read what happens in the next few months! Brittany


I loved this blog series. I can't even begin to tell you how happy I am for the both of you. Twins! YAY!

Erin @ The Speckled Palate

I am beyond thrilled for y'all, Angela! What a blessing -- two babies!

Best wishes in the real world appointment today. You're gonna be great, and so will those babies!


Yay!I couldn't call them "it" either. Can't wait to hear more about your babies and your move!


I have never heard the 'natural' question...but we get "Do twins run in the family?" :) So excited for you!!!!! I can't hold it in!


Good gosh, I love the way you described all four parts of your pregnancy! What an amazing writer you are. And if it makes you feel any better, a friend with twins has repeatedly said how easy it was after the first year because they always had another friend to play with and were never bored. And now that I have a single two year old, I can totally understand this! So your babies will be best friends and that, my friend, is a super awesome gift you have already given them :)


Want me to put a bow and a bow tie on them? That way we can tell them apart. ;)

I'm just so unbelievably happy for you two (four!). I hate it that all of the fertility treatments happened to you, but I'm glad that you get to write about it and share all of this with all of us. Just think, those little ones will one day read about the journey that brought them into existence. I think that's pretty darned special. <3


Okay! I have officially run out of words so just this: YAY!


So, so happy for you! (obviously)

There are some new studies about early diagnosis of pre-eclampsia. They just did a study that found a new hormone in urine samples. Women who had it, developed pre-eclampsia, those that didn't did not. Could give you some peace of mind if your doctors are able to test for it.

Also, there are some studies that a daily aspirin regimen helps keep pre-eclampsia at bay. I'm going to discuss with my doctors when we're ready for another baby.

Let me know if you want to talk about early deliveries and what to expect/prepare for. Obviously, not an expert. But I'm not about to give any unsolicited advice. (aside from the above about pre-eclampsia studies)


Best. Story. Ever. I literally am SO happy for you. You are going to be an amazing mother! Not to mention ya'll are going to make the cutest babies in the entire world! Congrats again! :):):)


Aww! (I actually "aww"ed out loud here.) What a great ending to the IVF story! I can't wait to hear about the pregnancy-and-childbearing story, and for you to add your child-rearing stories to the mix in the future.

FWIW, you were never the Sneetch with the star on its belly. Also FWIW, I have some mommy friends who also went through the IVF process, and they are NOT shy about sharing their stories. You shouldn't be either!


I am ridiculously happy for you, Colby, Baby A and Baby B! Every time I re-remember it, I smile :) Can't wait to follow along with the rest of your pregnancy, the big move, and your twin-raising experiences!


So happy for you, i cannot even tell you! Loved reading this! Can't wait to hear: boy or girl, baby names, etc! xoxo

I don't know about everybody else, but I'm loving the "baby photos"! I was wondering how you felt about medical care in a new country, but I bet you will get some reassuring information from someone somewhere.


This is such a wonderful, exciting, thrilling story! Congratulations!
