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.

Best of luck to you! Perhaps staying with your mother when discharged isnt such a bad thing. I had to stay with my mother with my second child as I went into labour early with her and my son was born premie too. She lived a block from the hospital and that was the stipulation for me being able to be released.
I pray that everything goes well!

Thanks ladies.  I think I'll be staying there for at least a week or as long as I can take it! I love  her and she's amazing but I really know that she gets stressed if I have both boys there and me...talk about outstaying your welcome! I appreciate all of the kind words. Thank you.
