A close family member has been admitted to the hospital yesterday for some pregnancy complications. She currently has a little over 2 months left to go (dont know exactly, due some time in may), and found out about a month or 2 ago that the cord only has 2 vessels. Yesterday she started bleeding heavily and went to the hospital. So far she has just sent a text with a short update. They think the sac is detaching from the uterus, which is causing bleeding, they also gave her meds to stop contractions. They gave her a steroid shot when she was admitted to help the babies lungs just in case they had to deliver. As of last night they said she has to stay in at least 7 days after the bleeding stops. This isn't her first baby, she's had 2 others.
She isn't close enough to go visit right now or we would. She isn't exactly up for talking to a bunch of people and isn't very good at explaining what exactly is going on, so I haven't asked to many questions.
I'm wondering if anyone has had any experience with anything like this? How serious is it? What should we expect? I'm assuming she will probably be on bed rest for the rest of the pregnancy.
I am also putting together a care package to send her while she is in the hospital. Any suggestions of what to put in it?
