For the first night I had the room to myself. However, the next morning a terrified young mom was wheeled in with her equally panicked husband. She was being admitted to monitor a placenta abruption (where the placenta tears away from the lining of the uterus). By now I was a pro at short-term stays (or so I thought). I put down the book I was reading (I was prepared this time) and struck up a conversation. This was her first pregnancy, and up until now it was normal. She was close to her delivery date, but still at the point that if her baby were born she would be preterm. I shared my story about my home-based bed rest, complications, and two hospital admissions, and she opened up about her fears and concerns. We ended up bonding over our situations. The next morning her husband showed up with breakfast for both of us.
