The Longest Shortest Time

EPISODE #105: Uterus + Sperm + Uterus

We’re back, with the second half of last week’s show, Uterus + Sperm. If you haven’t heard that episode yet, go listen to it before this one.

And, SPOILER ALERT: listen all the way through before scrolling to the bottom of this page!

When we left off, Jenna and Kiely expanded their family from two to three, thanks to Dominick’s donated sperm.


They had agreed that Kiely would get pregnant first, since she was a little older than Jenna. When their son Emerson was about two years old, they decided it was Jenna’s turn. So they called up Dominick for round 2. Except round 2 didn’t go as easy as round 1.

I’ll let you listen for all the twists and turns, but if you’ve heard the story by now, here are some pictures that capture the surprising outcome!



That last photo is Kiely with baby Samson, who was born on November 22, 2016. Kiely says she listened to the last episode while lying in her hospital bed. Jenna’s baby is due any day now!

UPDATE! Jenna gave birth to Foster, baby #3, on December 6th, 2016. Here’s the whole crew – and the two newbies cuddled up.


Did it take YOU longer than expected to start a family?
What happened? Did you wind up becoming a parent? Or not? Comments, please! (Also, parents of multiples, we know Kiely and Jenna would love some solidarity!)
