In hospital...full bedrest due to more bleeding

Well, here I am.  26.5 weeks and in the hospital surrounded by healthy, crying, full term babies and praying I make it to at least 32wks!
I had another bleeding episode from my SCH and I came to L&D on Tuesday night.  My cervix is still closed and baby is doing fine but I am here until Friday and they gave me steroid shots to help the baby's lungs develop should I go into preterm labour. My u/s didn't show any "new" hemorrhages so I feel like it must be from the old one but my OB hasn't discussed the results with me yet so I'm waiting on that.
I live on an island that is an hour at least from the hospital and nurses and OB are worried that if I do go into early labour that my baby will come pretty fast.  My mum says I can live with her for 2 months but seriously, I have 2 young boys and a husband...I want to go home where I'm most comfortable.  I just don't know what to do.
Sorry to be such a venter.  I'm just really confused and worried.

Sorry to hear that.  It would be hard to deal with what you are going through.  Hope everything clears up and you get the green light to go home and put your feet up.  Good luck!

Here is the thing on a plus note you have made it to the point where the chance of survival if your baby is born today is quite high. Yes obviously the longer baby stays in, the better but its possible that it this point you could deliver and baby would be fine. So as stressful and scary as this is, keep that in mind.

I am so sorry.  I can't imagine how hard it is being away from your kids.  That is my biggest fear this pregnancy.  Hang in there, it will all be worth it in the end.  Prayers your way.
