  • I was on bed rest for 5 weeks (weeks 29-34 when I delivered). I was in the hospital about 50% of that time and home the rest of it. Yeah, it is unbearably boring!!!
    Do you know anyone who will come to visit you? That really got me through. I had friends come over and bring me magazines and coloring books. My mom came and gave me a pedicure and shaved my legs for me.
    Magazines, books, going on-line, dvds, the usually stuff to help you get through the day! Keep telling yourself that it will all be worth it when you have a healthy baby!

  • I'm on bedrest right now, and have been since 16 weeks, I'm at 26 now and I stay bored to tears. I watch a lot of different things on tv to keep occupied and look up useless facts online. But really, unless you're just the kind of person who enjoys laying around reading you're just going to be bored. I was actually sent to a website called keepemcookin.com they have some good ideas and forums with lots of other moms on bed rest.

  • It is hard to be on bed rest unless you are the type who loves to be in bed. I thought I just liked to lay around but I am 32 weeks pregnant and I feel so bored everyday. The only thing that is keeping me sane is doing my school work. I feel so alone because not many people come over and they hate walking up my stairs to the bedroom and my bf hates being up there with me. I go online more looking up baby stuff.
