Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who was admitted to the Seven Hills Hospital in Andheri late on Monday night, is expected to give birth to her first baby on Wednesday.

It is reported that doctors have induced labor for Aishwarya. The procedure involves applying a gel on the cervix to induce labor. It is done when the woman is past or close to the expected childbirth date, or has uterine problems.

Labor is induced after the doctors take the Bishop's score, a pre-labor scoring system to check the cervical dilation.

She is under the care of Dr. Vinita Salvi, head of obstetrics and gynaecology, at the Andheri hospital.

A tweet that Amitabh Bachchan posted was behind most of the buzz. In his tweet, he had said, A day of expectation .. but another day ! The Lord has his ways and they are most special .. we wait !!

Later Amitabh Bachchan tweeted again, There is still no news from Aishwarya .. your wishes and prayers with us ... thank you ..

There has been tremendous excitement around the Bachchan baby over the weekend. Aishwarya had gone to the hospital for a check-up on Saturday too.
