  • My husband bought me a laptop so I was able to get online and play games, email and all that. I watched TV, movies, slept, talked on the phone, read books, and had people over to visit.

  • I was bedridden for abt 7 mos because I had major back surgery. I watched TV, did a lot of word search puzzles, and read some, but kind of hard with 4 pins just put in. I told my GF I was sorry but the TV was my new GF for a while, not much else you can do but try and make the best of it.

  • I read, watched TV, My Mom came and taught me how to crochet. My sister came and taught me how to knit. I copied recipes, I played solitare. I just had to do stuff that kept my mind and my hands occupied. I was on bedrest for 4 months. It sucks.

  • I was very bored, very antsy, and wished I could get up and do what I was used to doing.
    But I pretty much read books, filled in crossword puzzles, watched TV. That sort of thing.

  • Cafe Mom like crazy lately. I ran out of TV shows, movies, games, books etc. around the 5th month of pregnancy. :( I kind of wish I had signed up for online classes or something.
