Hospital Bedrest


On February 22, 2011, I spontaneously went into labor. I was barely 29 weeks along. Up until that point, I'd had a very uneventful pregnancy. Then, in what felt like an instant, I found myself in labor and delivery with labor progressing fast. Months later, one of the neonatal doctors would tell me that they were so sure I'd deliver on that night, that three carts were quickly prepped and ready. A team of neonatal doctors and nurses were also told to be ready for the birth. The boys somehow held on through the night and incredibly, five more weeks. I spent three of those weeks in the hospital, and the last two were spent mostly in a lazy boy chair at home.

These are my writings from that time.
