  • I read a lot of books, played on the computer and had friends bring me movies to watch that I had not seen. I also wrote letters and got lots of rest. Bedrest is not fun for sure I was on it for almost 20 weeks.

  • I was on bedrest in 1990 waiting for my DS, I kept the remote close by, read books, and slept. Stayed on bed rest from May until he was born in November. It seems like it takes forever, but it really doesn't looking back on it.

  • goodness i was on bed rest for two and half months, i read books,watched tv, took lots of baths,i would have my sister put the baby clothes on the bed, or would sit in a chair and just fold my lil girls clothes, id look over pictures from the baby shower...and i found it a treat when i go to go out and grocery shop- although my dad would make me sit in a wheel chair the whole time i still really enjoyed it :)
