Passing the time while pregnant?

So, here is my situation.......

My finance & I use to live in FL. When we found out we were not only having one baby but TWO! (twins) we decided it would be better to move up north to New Jersey because he had a large family that could help us with the kids.

So now, I'm 7 months pregnant currently and very limited in activities.
How are you suppose to pass the time in a new state where you don't know anyone and the highlights of your day are doing laundry? I'm going out of my mind!

  • Is there anything you have always wanted to learn? Now would be a good time to start in. Since I've been laid up with my limited mobility, I've started my novel. I've got almost 50 pages thus far. I've always talked about it, but I've never really had time to do it. I would suggest the same to you. What have you always wanted to do, but never had time for?

  • You could take up sewing and sew up a stash of cloth diapers to save you money =)

  • I hear ya on trying to find something to do when you don't know anyone and are limited.. Even though I have my 2 year old at home, I can't really play with him so he spends a lot of time with his grandparents since my hubby works full time and goes to collage full time lol. I bought a sewing machine and started hemming baby blankets then I learned how to do embroidery! I am gathering old family recipies for desserts so I can open my bakery when I am recovered. You will definatly have your hands full soon so hopefully you are able to find an easy hobby that is easy on your body to. Congrats on your twins btw

  • anything I have ever been interested in is to active for me to do right now..... I started a few projects for the babies room such as making and painting the wall letters, etc.... and I tend to finish things like that in just a few hours.

    and as far as being on the computer... I can only be on the computer looking at the screen for 2-3 hours tops because my head starts to pound
