A happy belated Thanksgiving to all! I meant to post this yesterday on Thanksgiving, but I over-stuffed myself and ended up in a food coma for the rest of the night.

Supposedly digestion slows way down when you're pg so that the baby has more time to absorb all the nutrients it needs. This made for a very long miserably stuffed feeling. You know the ill feeling after eating an all you can eat buffet? Well let me tell you, it's 10 times worse when you're pg. No more big meals for me for the rest of this pg! Family, please remind me of this at Christmas! =)

Well, I'm sure you can imagine what we are so incredibly thankful for this year. We finally beat infertility, we are finally pg! But what kept interrupting my thoughts was all my friends out there that are still in the trenches, still fighting the fight. My heart goes out to each and every one of you. Keep fighting and know that I'll be right beside you rooting you on.

All Our Love,

Tall Dude & Short Chick


  1. Yay for Turkey Day (well, minus the turkey for us). I'm so glad you have so much to be thankful for--you certainly worked hard enough! Thanks for thinking of those of us still fighting, too :)

  2. Thanks Jill for thinking of us. You look FAB girl - pregnancy is suiting you!!!

  3. Good picture of tall dude and short chic. No wonder you were stuffed all evening if you ate all of that turkey leghaha.
    Will remind you to eat smaller portions from now on.
    You are looking better each week.
    Enjoyed yesterday very much.
    Love you bunches,
    Jean,Ray and G-Momma

  4. Dear Sis,
    Wish we could have been with all of you. Miss you both.

    BTW: PG really looks good on you!

    Love you


  5. And a happy Black Friday to you! I have no excuse, just feel full cuz I gorged myself-- two days in a row! :0~ Oh well, at least we get to wear sweaters and sweatshirts for the next few months.
    Thanking God right along with you for His miracles and so many other blessings.
    Btw, love your "How Big is Baby" section on the blog-- I always find this information so cool... Makes it a little more real and practical for those who haven't been through it yet. You have a prune this week! Awwww, how sweet.
    Okay, off to catch up on tivo before hubby leaves tomorrow for another 10 days.
    Let's chat soon!

  6. I had that same stuffed feeling yesterday and it is no fun! You would think I would have learned by now:)

    Happy Thanksgiving, Jill! You and DH deserve it:)

  7. Happy Thanksgiving Jill :-)

    Thanks for your kind words.

  8. Happy Belated Thanksgiving to you too Jill! You guys looks great and wonderfully happy. You definitely deserve it. Just as you are thankful for finally beating your IF, I am thankful at least that we have another opportunity to try to beat that battle as well. I will keep you posted, as I really do appreciate all the support you gave me at IVFC.
    Take care!

  9. Hey Jill! You look so pretty in the Thanksgiving picture. :0) I can't believe you are almost three months along! Wow! I love you, happy very belated Thanksgiving!

  10. Wow, Jill, you are just moving right along and nearing the start of your second trimester soon.

    You look so cute in your Thanksgiving picture...likely your most thankful one to date!

    Thanks for thinking of those of us still on this side. Many hugs.

  11. Happy Belated Thanksgiving!

    What a wonderful Thanksgiving this must have been for you and DH! You two are too too cute. =)


Thank you for your comment! Hugs, Kerry and Jill
