  • I had a shop-a-holic friend who was put on bedrest. She said to her husband, "I am pregnant, and since I cannot do anything else, I WILL be shopping on the internet until my bedrest is lifted." It was kind of funny . . . . but, I gather a lot of people wind up doing that.

  • Scrapbook, learn to knit or crochet, word searches...those are all I had besides TV. Reading. Now if you have a laptop you can surf the net.

  • send someone to the library lol. i read alot when i was on bedrest. also talked on the phone alot.....didn't watch too much tv. i also looked out the window alot (it was spring/early summer and there was alot of birds, etc. to watch lol). come to think of it i wasn't bored at all (probably too sick to be bored lol). i was only allowed out of bed to go potty
