  • Gone to a movie, caught up on phone calls, stocked the freezer with meals that can easily be reheated and eaten with one hand, gone to lunch with friends, things like that. Maybe read a couple of books for fun.

  • Slept.  I wasn't sleeping very good so by the time I went into labor I was exhausted.  Then when I went into hard labor I fell asleep and woke up screaming in my hubs face, lol.  I didn't want that to happen again so I stayed up the rest of the time.

  • I wish I would have slept majorly, i didnt sleep well either...go out to a resturant by myself with my husband lol a restruant that doesnt involve paper placemats and crayons as table decor, laid in bed all day and watched movie after movie all day long, bought some sort of device that involved it sterilizing my bottles for me so i wouldnt have to stand there for half of my day steriziling my bottles. Yep, thats good.

  • Been more careful about sticking to bedrest. But I had so much that I needed to do, and I had no help... and it ended up causing my son to be born 7 weeks early. He's healthy now, but I have no one to blame but myself for his prematurity.
