I've been spending mine in the bedroom with the TV DVD laptop and what not. Shouldn't be here long though but my wife Works and is pretty busy so I'm home alone longer than I want to be. its pretty boring here after a while. I wish I had friends to come and visit me.

Thanks for joining us! Bed rest can be VERY lonely. Could friends or family members visit you after work or on the weekends? I know I didn't want to "trouble" anyone, but I think the days would have gone quicker if I had set up visits to look forward to.

How many weeks are you? And why are you on bedrest?

Do you have a blood pressure cuff at home? I had pre-eclampsia, and at the point it was diagnosed my sister went out and bought a high-quality electronic one. The docs took my calls more seriously (it seemed) when I could tell them my specific readings.
