A few days passed by, and Jeevika was starting to feel better. Her fever vanished as well as her headaches. Sometimes she would still get morning sickness, but Viren was always there for her. He always kept some ginger ale or lemon water and crackers in the room for Jeevika, as she often choose to skip breakfast. Today Viren and Jeevika were going for their first ultrasound. They were both very excited and nervous at the same time. Viren came home early from work and saw Jeevika eating lunch with Manvi, Virat, and Vanshika. He told her that they had to leave in twenty minutes for the appointment. He sat next to Jeevika as she ate her food. He could not stop seeing how her face was glowing so much these days. Soon the both of them left home. At the doctors office, Jeevika and Viren were waiting to be called inside. As soon as the nurse called them in, both of them stood up and unlikely enough Jeevika placed her hand with Viren's. He looked at her and gave her an assuring look. As soon as they went inside, they sat down and the doctor asked Jeevika some regular routine questions. The nurse then came and gave her a gown to change into. While she went to change, the doctor asked Viren a few questions.
doctor - "Have you noticed any changes in Jeevika ever since the start of her antibiotics course?"
viren - "Nothing major, but I do notice she is easily tired and very moody." smiling as he said that. She tries to skip eating breakfast because of the ongoing nausea, but I give her some ginger ale and crackers or just a plain toast to eat"
doctor - "Oh thats very good, especially in Jeevika's case she shouldn't be skipping any meals. If she doesn't like having solid meals throughout the day, try feeding her small bites every two hours. She maybe feeling nauseas when, but try to give her an apple for breakfast, often times thats helps pregnant women with the nausea"
viren - "I will try that for sure"
The nurse calls the doctor and tells her that Jeevika has changed. Viren and the doctor walk to the bed where Jeevika is covered up with a blanket. The doctor removes the blanket and spread some of the cool gel on her tummy. Viren smiles at her as she gets the chills and he then places his hand on her forehead. The doctor starts checking the babies development and shows the little baby on the screen to Jeevika and Viren. Jeevika's starts crying and Viren wipes her tears away happily looking at his little baby on the screen. The doctor then prints out two scans for Jeevika and Viren to take home. Jeevika with the help of the nurse wipes the cool gel from her stomach and changes back into her outfit. They both thank the doctor and leave the office happily. On the way back home, Viren decides to surprise Jeevika. He takes her to their favorite spot in Chandigardh, the lake. As Jeevika had dozed off in the car, Viren gently kissed Jeevika on her check. She woke up and noticed that they weren't at home, intact they were here at the lake. Jeevika smiled and kissed Viren on his check this time. Viren quickly thought to himself. "boy is she in a good mood today :)." The both of them walked around for some time until Jeevika started holding her stomach for a while.
viren - "Jeevika, are you alright? Is the baby okay?"
jeevika - "Yeah the baby is fine, actually uhm, never mind"
viren - "Jeevika whats wrong, you can tell me"
jeevika - "No nothing, I'm fine"
viren - "JEEVIKA!"
jeevika - "Actually I'm getting really hungry :p"
Viren laughs at her and she angrily walks back to the car.
Viren - "Ok I'm sorry for laughing, I shouldn't have laughed. I'm really sorry, why didn't you tell me before? Let's go home, I'll call Manvi and tell her to have food ready for you"
Jeevika slightly smiles as Viren settles himself back into the car.
jeevika - "can you tell Manvi to make me some aloo porantha?"
viren - "anything for you"
Viren called Manvi and told her that they would be home in 20 minutes or so and to have Jeevika's aloo porantha ready. They both drove home happily with Jeevika looking at her scan the whole time.
