I know how you feel, I was pre-eclamptic and had to do bed rest. I was even told to lay on one side over the other. Sigh! You just take things slow and try your best.

My daughter in law was also on bed rest and started working from home. Once she had everything ready for the baby she took her computer, watched a presentation for a great company with natural and safe products for the family and got started. Let me know if you want the link. She is able to stay home with her children and earns a great monthly residual income.

Find all kinds of little things that will keep your hands and mind busy. This is a good time to prepare for the baby. Many mothers don't get time to do the little things they want to before the baby comes and now you get that opportunity. Decorate the nursery walls. Knit or learn to, in order to make blankets and throws for the baby and you when it comes. Write letters and get in touch with people you haven't had time for before. Start making lists of things you are going to need for the baby and yourself and hubby. Get in touch on chat rooms with other new or expecting moms and see what they have to say. Talk to women who have already had their babies recently and ask them what they wish they had done before the baby arrived. If you really think about it you will find there are dozens of things you can do.

You'll get through this.  Books, movies, your cell phone and/or computer (or tablet) are all going to be helpful for you.

Maybe you can schedule to have friends visit every few days for some company.
