Justin and Nancy Rhode were both 30 and had been married for 3 years when they began trying to have a baby. Quickly, they realized that they were going to need some assistance. They did 4 rounds of invitro fertilization (IVF), but the attempts were all unsuccessful. From there, the couple tried surrogacy but that initially successful pregnancy ended in miscarriage. Things seemed bleak and they were ready to give up! You must check out this story of miraculous twinblings.
The surrogate did not want to try again, so the couple went back to IVF treatments. After 3 more years of unsuccessful rounds of IVF, they found a new surrogate.
When their new surrogate, a 30-year-old stay at home mom named Ashley began preparing for the IVF surrogacy cycle, the couple decided to try one final round of IVF by themselves. Two weeks later Justin and Nancy received the biggest surprise ever: Nancy was pregnant from the final IVF cycle! However, the couple had been told that Nancy’s body couldn’t sustain a pregnancy so they paid Ashley to continue with the surrogate pregnancy attempt.
Five weeks after Nancy received her positive pregnancy test, Ashley found out she was pregnant too. The couple found out they were expecting not one but TWO little girls! Baby sisters Lilliana and Audrey were born just 5 weeks apart. They are referred to as ‘twinblings’ they have the same biological parents and share the same DNA. However, they were born to different women in two different states. =
