Our DNA test kits have been shipped. They should arrive in Delhi in a couple days. I have to say I am ready to get this show on the road. I know the babies are still growing, but I am so ready to get my arms around them. I have already completed all of the paperwork to make them into US citizens (I am a little crazy: I filled out four forms one for each of the four names we have chosen--two boys, two girls--you get the idea).

We had a meeting with Dr. Indira on Saturday. The first thing she said was "Seema is mad at you!" Turns out Seema has been packing on the pounds since we last saw her. Thirteen pounds in three weeks. Since it is Diwali season here she has been getting several visitors at her house and is a little embarrassed by her weight gain. Leaving the house and getting to the appointments has become quite the challenge, and so the doctor has provided a car and driver to get from place to place. For the comfort of everyone we decided not to have Seema trek across town to our fancy ultrasound clinic to get the 3D images and video. The great news is that everything is healthy with the babies and Seema.

The next ultrasound will be on Nov. 5. They will be doing a doppler to check that blood flow is reaching both babies equally. After that the babies can come anytime. However if they don't come before Nov. 17 they will induce her on Nov. 19 or 20!



  1. I am pretty sure I will be the same way when we get out chance. Home Seems continues to feel ok...and good luck!

  2. I am right there with ya, I cannot wait to get our little one in our arms! You guys are right there! SUPER EXCITING! HUGS!

  3. I know how you are feeling, it is almost too much!

  4. This is GREAT news!!! I'm so excited for you guys and hope that Harris and I get to see the babies while we're in Delhi during December. Hang in there - it's almost time!!!

  5. It's so hard to be patient when you can almost feel their impending arrival! Best wishes. Would have loved to have caught up with you in Delhi but the time seamed to fly by so quickly!!!! Take care. Happy Diwalli
