I was on full bed rest in the hospital for a week. It was the longest crappiest week of my life. It did have GREAT ending though. I was on meds that made me groggy. I couldn't focus my eyes or mind so I couldn't read or watch TV or even hold a coherent conversation. I had lots of visitors to help the time pass. How many weeks are you? Hopefully you are due soon and can enjoy being a mom!

I was on bed rest with my first for a few weeks before they put me on bed rest in the hospital 3 weeks before Lucy's due date...thank goodness she came two weeks early!! I was about to loose my mind....When I wasn't in the hospital I was at home trying to rest but we were in full renovation mode then and I would sit on the floor and paint closet doors or mess around with he baby's room....I just couldn't stay in bed....I am on bed rest this time around too...but with a one year old there is no way I can truly be on bed rest so I lay on her floor in her room while she plays or I go outside and sit under a sprinkler while she plays in her baby pool....ugh...2 more days of this...good luck with your bed rest!!!

I remember when I went to my daily check-up (34 weeks) my blood pressure was high and I had to be on bed rest, well, being on my own I couldn't just keep still. I have to admit the first two days were fun. Realizing I can just watch tv, and eat, but reality set in big time after the third day. I was bored, extremely bored, everybody had to work so I'm making meals, cleaning the house, and when my nurse came to check my blood-pressure, she would ask me what have I been doing, I simply told her I just took out the trash, boy did she get mad at me, It was hard for me, because I was not in a reading mood, I didn't have nobody to write to, and It was a sad time for me, and honestly I am glad that my son came early, because some people don't have the friends to write to or to keep them company..I had a happy ending though. Son was born with no complications.
