PK called few of the private obstetrician’s rooms to inquire about their process, appointments and fee structure and all that stuff. We booked with the one we have heard & read a lot about. Our first appointment with Ob was after a week and a half. Although we were happy & relieved seeing the little floating and jumping monkey/monkey-ni?? (lol) during first ultrasound, we were not being over excited. We were just taking every day as it comes.

Meanwhile we got our first surprise. PK was offered a very good job in a huge company, exactly what he was looking for, exactly what I was praying for him and what we wanted to happen for his career progress. We were feeling like happy days were here again.

Soon we visited our Ob for first appointment. There we got another surprise. After all the initial check up and health history questions, Ob did the scan. As per the initial ultrasound, I should have been 8 weeks pregnant on that day but when the Ob did the scan, he said – “The baby looks bigger than 8 weeks. Baby has got hands & feet and this is definitely bigger than 8 weeks, let me measure the baby” After measuring the baby he said – “The baby is 9 weeks and 5 days old”

Wow!! So I was almost 10 weeks but I was thinking I was only 8 weeks pregnant. That means in another 2 weeks I will complete my first trimester. At that time, PK & I were like – what’s going on in our lives?? It was like our lives were fast forwarded in front of our eyes.

In next 2 weeks, we had NT scan appointment. I was nervous as this scan confirms if the baby has any down syndrome but with the grace of God, it all went well, the scan results came out good with very low risks. We had celebratory Mexican lunch after the appointment.

We completed our first trimester on 3rd of November and on that day, we decided to inform both of our families to start preparing for their first grandchild’s arrival in May 2015. I will write about everyone’s reaction to the news in separate post.

In these three months, we celebrated Navratri and I danced my heart out as I did not know about our baby at that time. After we found out, every weekend or even on week days there were lots of things happening. Like we celebrated BIL’s birthday, celebrated Navratri, entertained a whole lot of guests, celebrated Diwali, celebrated neighbor’s baby’s first birthday, I traveled to Canberra for work..phew!!!
