Elvis has graduated with flying colours!

Breathe innnnn and out......

All was super this morning! I can't deny I was nervous. With all that has been happening to my cyber friends lately I was trying to prepare myself if the news was bad. But it wasn't.
The Favourite Doctor did the scan and while she was there the Top Doctor came in too! They said they were fighting over who would have scanned me this morning! How sweet!

So in goes the wand and we see immediately a bigger Elvis, Fav Doc was all awwhs and ohhws and how cute the baby was. And there's the heartbeat! Relief. On with the measurements and Elvis is right on track at 9w3d (I'm officially 9w4d today! I got the Fav Doc to recheck the dates!) with a very strong heartbeat of 176bpm. My mantra today was "a strong heartbeat of 173bpm!" so even better than my expectations. She was pointing at the hands and feet, of course they are still only little buds but I saw a hand moving! Here are two pics, I think you may guess Elvis's shape a bit but it's probably still just a guess!

Given that my sister is coming over for a few days we decided to book a final scan at the clinic for the 6th of July so that she can be there too. That will be the last time at the clinic as a patient for now and I am thinking of getting some presents. I certainly will get something special for the Favourite Doctor, she's just been amazing and so so supportive, and then the lab staff and all the nurses and even the admin gilrs.

As always thanks so much for your support and good wishes, we won't be saying anything officially until the July scan, but I'm trying now to relax and enjoy the pregnancy.

And I will post the part 2 of MIL story very soon! Delighted you enjoyed it!
