What do you do when you're bed-ridden for four days?

I'm 33 weeks pregnant and I've been sick which has been causing me to have contractions. They were stopped but I was told to stay bed-ridden until I see my doctor again which is on Tuesday.

I feel better, but I still can't go anywhere or do much. What can I do from going stir crazy? lol

  • I'd say quit your whining. I was on bed rest for almost 6 months.

    And I say, your bitching is not necessary. I wasn't asking for a competition I just wanted to know what I can do. Chill out.
