When toddlers attack

And the survey says....

India is quite literally on the other side of the world from California -- 13 hours difference, and I became intimately acquainted with every minute of every one of those hours as the jetlag slowly wore off on our return from Delhi last April.  So given the time difference, I spent most of yesterday evening compulsively checking my email, as if the results of the first hCG test would be done and sent by 8:00 am Delhi time.

Naturally, the first thing I did after waking up this morning was to pull the laptop from under the bed -- here's what was waiting for me:

We would like to inform you that as per our schedule we have done a Beta HCG test for R.

We are happy to inform you that her beta value is 548.63, which is very good.

 Please find the attached file for the same.

We would like to congratulate you as you are pregnant now.

We will now do a USG scan for her within a week to check the pregnancy sacs.

Once her scan will be done, we will get back to you at the earliest.

SCI wishing you good luck for this beautiful journey ahead.

Er... should we be thinking about adding TWO extra bedrooms to the house...?
