  • There is a great website for moms like you. I was on bedrest spring of 2008 and I thought I was going to go looney! This site has a chatroom that kept me entertained a lot.  It is a website for high risk moms and moms of preemies.

  • I've never been on bedrest but perhaps some ideas...have you ever wanted to crochet, knit, etc. Now is the time to learn. How about starting a journal of your feelings. Can you organize those photos and put them into photo albums? Anything you've ever wanted to learn to do? Read up on it.

    Can you volunteer to help a teacher grade papers from one of the local schools? Help cut out shapes, etc for bulitin boards? What about some part time tutoring? Have the child come over and work with them while you're laying on the couch.
