Aishwarya not admitted yet for deliveryAishwarya Rai Bachchan has been "up and about" this weekend, as her husband Abhishek Bachchan's tweet in response to a fan's query, says. Last night she paid another visit to the Seven Hills Hospital for a check-up. She was accompanied by members of her family, including Abhishek and sister-in-law Shweta Bachchan Nanda.

Meanwhile, preparations are on in full swing at the Bachchan home for the arrival of Baby B. "The family gathers together from all over as we wait for the 'arrival' .. Greatest joy for me - a full house and the 'chahel - pahel'" says a tweet from Aishwarya's father-in-law, the legendary Amitabh Bachchan. But the preparations to welcome Baby B did not deter Mr Bachchan from watching Imtiaz Ali's Rockstar on Sunday.

"Its late but not without cause .. just back from 'RockStar' and living in the brilliance of all - Imtiaz Ali, Ranbir, AR and Nargis," he tweeted. Mr Bachchan, who is very active on Twitter, followed up with another tweet praising Rockstar. In the same breath he tweeted on taking time off to wait for his soon-to-be-born grandchild. " Still with 'RockStar' and its beauty ..and now to be with family and its joys .. some of the pleasures of vacant schedules ..rare !!

Excitement over soon-to-be-born Baby B reached a head on 11.11.11, especially when Aishwarya was spotted at the hospital on the eve of 11.11.11. Many felt the Bachchan bahu was being admitted for delivery. However, a reported statement from her spokesperson on social sites categorically denied that she was indeed admitted. She was apparently at the hospital for a check-up and left after that.

On Friday night, Mr Bachchan's Twitter timeline was jammed with messages congratulating him for the birth of Aishwarya's baby boy. This, after another round of gossip claiming she had delivered on the day which reportedly had 150 crore riding on it as bookies across the country went on an overdrive. "Getting congratulatory messages on Aishwarya delivering a boy !!! Guess they know more than even she does !! False and incorrect news," Mr Bachchan tweeted.

There was high interest building up outside the hospital as 11.11.11 dawned and progressed. Passersby craned their necks through cracks and crevices in the boundary wall surrounding the hospital, hoping to catch a glimpse of the beautiful Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and the Bachchan family. Aishwarya, we believe was at Jalsa, one of the Bachchan homes, through the day.

The Seven Hills Hospital has been in the limelight ever since it was confirmed as the choice of the Bachchans for Aishwarya's baby. Set in Marol, Andheri (E), it's easy to see why the Bachchans picked it over the usual celebrity choices, including the landmark Breach Candy Hospital in South Mumbai.

Before it became associated with the Bachchan baby, Seven Hills to the casual observer could pass for a luxury gated residential complex. There are two entrances to the main building and a massive car park which separates it from the road. The back gate mostly remains closed and our sources say the Bachchans enter through the main gate like everyone else.

There is now an enclosure built in the compound of the hospital (our sources say by the hospital). Very likely, this is where the announcement for Baby B will be made. This is likely to double up as security enclosure after Baby B's arrival. For now, there is not much activity around the hospital. Looks like India and the Bachchans are patiently waiting for Baby B to arrive.
