Anyone else on Bedrest?

Last Friday started my fulltime bedrest.My Blood Pressure was through the roof: 190/103. And on top of that my feet looked like sub sammies!

I have 8 weeks to go til the little monkey is due. So it is gonna be a long 8 weeks. Is anyone else on Bedrest? What do you do to pass the time?

  • Not on bedrest but good luck with it, to pass time I would invite people over to see you so your not extremely bored all the time, watch some movies, read some good magazines, good luck!

  • Im right there with you Destins_Mommy....I cannot wear socks at all...not even my hubby's! If I put em on my feet swell up like Hobbit feet, I get softballs on the sides of my ankles and my calves and knee caps swell up. It is so miserable. So I lay about barefoot and if I have to go outside I wear either my flip flops or sock monkey slippers.
