I've missed you guys....update on the placenta previa queen

  1. Hi guys. I have missed you all the past couple weeks here. I'm in the hospital again. Been here since 2/14.....surprise, Happy Valentine's Day! Woke up early early that morning with some serious bleeding. Went by ambulance to the closest ER, and then my doc had me transferred per ambulance to a high risk facility farther from our home. The bleeding was much much worse than the times before, and now they've decided that I need to stay here in the hospital until baby Gage is born for safety's sake. On one level, I am very comforted to know that if I start bleeding like that again help is right here, but on another level I am exceptionally depressed with being isolated here away from my husband and children.

    My husband is so awesome. (I think I've mentioned that before). He rented a laptop for me to use while I'm here in the hospital so that I would have something to keep me occupied. I miss him so much, I just can't even tell you. I talk to him a lot on the phone and he comes up here to see me as much as he can, but I want to be at home so bad.

    Baby Gage seems to be doing fine. Gaining weight well according
    to US. I'm 29 and 4/7 weeks now. I don't know if I can hang on for much longer. This is getting really really hard, and I am totally on the edge of being completely crazy.

    Well, thanks again to all of you for being here to listen to my whining. Talk to you again soon.

    Great to see you back here. Sorry you are incarcerated though. I would be batty if I was in the hospital more than overnight, so I can only try to imagine being in there for a few weeks.

    Sounds like you're getting the best care possible. My prayers are with you and baby Gage! Glad you've got something to do while being confined to bed.

    Thanks for posting. I'm sorry to hear of the circumstances, though. With my first baby, I had a long hospital stay for pre-term labor that just wouldn't quit. The OB group I used had 5 doctors, so I saw each one on one day of the week, and they rotated weekends. There was one female doctor who I didn't particularly like, but I quickly learned that every Wednesday, when she was on, I would get to get out of bed for a shower and shampoo. (The other 4 insisted on complete bed rest.) Needless to say, she became my new favorite physician. I always wondered if she had complicated pregnancies and maybe could sympathize with me. Nothing bad ever happened on her watch, thank goodness.

    Hang in there, and same to baby Gage.

    Hubby sounds like a sweetie..so thoughtful of him to get the laptop.
    At least you can keep up here.

    Sorry you are in for the duration, it's hard being kept in bed for weeks...especially when you're away from home. Every day he stays inside is wonderful.

    It's good that you have a laptop now, that'll help with the boredom....mimi
