  • I was on bed rest with my daughter and I read the ENTIRE parenting section of the library. lol Other than that it was a pretty boring and miserable time! Good luck!

  • I loved to watch TV on DVD. And play games.. video games, word games, etc. I read a lot also. Oh, and my all time favorite, get caught up on your sleep that you wont be getting once the baby comes :-)

  • I read a lot. How about suduko? Maybe you could make a journal for the baby to read when he/she grows up and hears what you went through during these days.
