Fifteen Weeks

We are back from four days in Ohio visiting Doug's family. His entire family converged at his parents house. It was nice to have everyone in the same place since we are split between Colorado, Florida, and India. His family treated us with the highest respect; we felt very welcome in their home. I even got called uncle Chad... that makes me feel really good.

I have been relaxin' by the pool all day. Douglas is at a conference down in Lexington, and I am hanging out with my family. I have done nothing but over eat since we got to America. If we don't get out of the midwest soon I am not going to fit into any of my clothes. While Doug is gone I take full advantage of crap television. I can't believe some of the shows that are on now. I have been watching "Hoarding Buried Alive" with my jaw dropped all evening. Some of the commercials I have seen advertising what is on next is even more shocking.

We are fifteen weeks pregnant today. The fishbowl babies have changed again. We received a report from Delhi yesterday that Seema came in for a routine checkup and everything is going great. Her nausea has subsided, and she is overall comfortable and happy with the pregnancy. Her weight gain is normal, and the doctor said everything looks and sounds great. The next checkup is in two weeks. The next ultrasound is in four weeks.

The babies are about the size of softballs, and are 4-4.5 inches long. The bones are starting to harden, they can make fists and suck their thumbs. They may also start to hiccup... silently since they have no air in the trachea. They should be making themselves known to Seema by their increased mobility.



  1. You are firmly in the 2nd tri is amazing to think how rapidly they are developing. Just think, in a year from now, they will be 1/2 a year old and probably 25 inches and 15+ pounds!

  2. Good news that your pregnancy continues to be uneventful! Enjoy your time relaxing in the states.
