The lime in the coconut!


Little Elvis is growing! Today I went in for my last scan at the clinic with my sister in tow. As usual I had a couple of days of anxiety and what ifs...but this morning I was calm and positive and in any case I know I can't prevent bad news or change them for the matter, so I just stopped thinking about that altogether.

My Fav Doctor did the scan and again she was all very happy and excited about what she was seeing and so were we! Elvis measures 11w5d (I'm 11w2d today) and moves a lot! We could definitely see arms and legs stretching, the umbilical chord and the nose! Heartbeat strong at 166bpm which she said it's perfect. We got a good few pics, I'm posting here two very cute ones!

It seems like Elvis is sucking his thumb!

And these are Elvis's little legs!

We have officially left the clinic today for the last time, I'll go back with presents in a weeks or so, it was somewhat a strange feeling, specially because I still can't quite believe this are my pictures, but sure it will eventually sink in!

And I'm also adding a ticker today (brave me!) I love those that show the baby size in fruit and this week Elvis is the size of a lime...I thought my uterus may be the size of a coconut and now I cannot get the song out of my head! In dreamland today, work can wait until tomorrow...

  15. So excited for you! I remember hitting that milestone where the Fertility Clinic graduates you to your own doctor...bittersweet for sure. My clinic did it at 8 weeks though....so I was still just seeing a little shrimp in there. Love the photos of Elvis...He/She is super cute! Take a deep breath and enjoy your time pregnant. The scary, danger zone is now passed! Congrats.

  24. Such great news and great pictures! I'm just dying to see our little bean again - but it won't be until I'm 12w5d. But it's exciting to see how much more distinct the pictures are at 11 weeks! Yay for little Elvis!!

  26. Awe....so very cute. I can't believe you are over 11 weeks...time is really flying.

  27. Oh Fran, this post makes my heart swell and my eyes well. Look at that precious, perfect little baby! I LOVE it!

    As for not thinking about the negative, good on you! Relish each and every second you are pregnant, because in 29 weeks (or less), you'll have a squaling, pink baby in your arms.:)

    The one thing I can' wait for is for you to feel movement. I totally miss that, and I can't wait to feel it again myself. It is just so incredible.

    Sending all of your clan my love!
