 Welcome to the group, Alissa! Being stuck at home alone definitely can make you feel sad and lonely and depressed. Maybe you could start by telling him that you won't agree to do anything that isn't safe for the baby? You should also check out these groups, too:

Wecome to the group Alissa,
I agree with the other poster.

Congratulations, but he may just be overly cautious. Do you have friends you can go out with? Go have lunch? Do some shopping? What about family? Have them over for lunch or dinner, play cards, board games, rent some movies! Etc.

Hi Alissa, congrats!

It sounds like maybe your boyfriend needs to go to the doctor with you and ask some of the questions he's having about safety, etc.  

When I was pregnant, I did pretty much everything I did when I wasn't pregnant, with the exception of drinking and strenuous exercise.  I even went bowling quite a few times when I was pregnant with my oldest!

Welcome to the group!!  I agree with the others.  Plus if he doesn't want to make plans that you can be a part of, make your own.  Grab a friend and go walking or shopping for baby things

Hi Alissa! Welcome to the group and congrats on your pregnancy! You can still do all of your other activities as long as they're safe for the baby. I hiked all of the way through my pregnancy and did pretty much everything that I used to do previously. Can you maybe find a hobby to do? What are some of your interests?
