PIX: Aishwarya Rai's journey to motherhood

As the Bachchan family gears up to make room for the newest arrival, we look back at the last moments of Aishwarya Rai's pregnancy -- from the time she got admitted to the hospital to the time she came out with her baby daughter.

False alarm?

The actress first visited the Seven Hills hospital, in northwest Mumbai, on November 13.

She was accompanied by husband Abhishek, her parents Krishnaraj and Vrinda Rai, his parents Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan and Abhishek's sister Shweta Nanda.

Ash may have made the visit due to a false alarm or to complete some hospital paperwork. The visit did not last very long, and the family returned home late that night.
