Hi & welcome!  I'm glad to hear that you've been successful at keeping baby cooking longer & that baby is looking good!!!
I don't have any experience with PROM, but my 1st child was born at 26 wks 5 days. 
I had some PTL symptoms almost 2 weeks ago when I hit 24 wks & spent the night in the hospital.  One night was enough, can't imagine being in there for over a week!  Can't be fun, sorry you have to stay, but hang in there!  Every day baby stays inside is huge!!!
Best wishes!

I'm new here too. On day 4 of bedrest with PROM. My water broke at 19 weeks, so I'm going to be here for a very, very long time.

It tough being in the hospital on bedrest. The experience is much different then being on bedrest at home. Ask for double sheets, it might make the bed more comfortable for you. It's also ok to ask the nurse manager if there is a way to meet any other women on bedrest on the floor. Maybe they can wheel someone to your room if you both agree or even wheel the beds into an empty room. If none else, if two of you agree to have them share your hospital phone numbers you can at least talk to someone in the same situation. Hang in there!

I'm on week 3 of hospital bed rest with a moderate abruption.  It took quite a while to get used to LIVING at the hospital.  I miss so much - my husband, my cat, my bed, work - it's really easy to get really sad in this place.  But you'll get better at coping with it and finding things to do.  It won't be easy, especially the worrying, but you'll get through it!
