  • Are you eating a lot? That's my fear of pregnant bed rest. Anyhow, I've been laid up before for a couple of weeks when I was hit by a car. Read read read. Play sudoku. If you have a laptop, find a penpal! Good luck!

  • i was on bedrest for 2 weeks. i would get my dh to wash and dry clothes, then i would fold them and he would put them up. i played on the comp all the time. i'm not a big reader, but my aunt would bring me lots of magazines to go through. when i got up to shower or to fix me something to eat, that's when i would do a little bit more cleaning, like dishes or wipe of the tops of counters and furniture.
