Making the Best of Bed Rest / Monday Roll Call for September 16, 2019
« on: September 16, 2019 at 07:59 AM »
Hello, ladies!

How is everyone doing? How many weeks are you? Any surprise trips to L&D last week? And who is holding smooth and steady? I'm looking forward to your updates!

Keep 'em cookin'!

Making the Best of Bed Rest / Monday Roll Call for September 9, 2019

Hi, ladies!

I thought I'd do a fun question this week, to help keep you focused on the end goal: What do you dream of doing with your baby someday? Is there a certain activity? A hobby you'd like to share? A place to go? Tell us!

Keep 'em cookin', mamas!

Happy Labor Day! Tell your babies not to get any wild ideas.  ;)

My kids are heading back to school tomorrow. Anyone else? My "bed rest babies" are both middle-schoolers.

I've noticed that our turnout for the Thursday Live Chats has been low. Is there something about the chats that we could do differently? Would you like to receive a reminder e-mail? Just let me know... Your participation is what makes it work. Thanks!

Keep 'em cookin', mamas!

Hi, Val. Hi, Grace.

How are you both doing? Still cookin'? I'd love to hear an update and I'm sure many other moms visiting the site would, too. Your post has been read by 195 people! Staying connected is what will get you through!  :)

Today I want to share some wisdom from my late grandma:

Don't meet trouble halfway.
Let it travel the full distance,
because something usually happens to it before it arrives.


Anxiety and worry seem to be such a common part of bed rest. There's just too much time to think about all that might go wrong! Try not to get trapped in that kind of thinking. Instead, feel confident knowing that you are doing all you can to keep your baby (or babies) safe.

Keep 'em cookin'!

Hi, Kelly.
It is at 2:00 pm in the Eastern time zone in the U.S., which is 8 to 10 hours behind you, depending on where in Australia you are. That sounds like it could be tough for you to join in.

Hello, you wonderful mamas! I'm looking forward to hearing everyone's updates!

I have a favor to ask. We have had MANY new members join this past week. I love it! Would you be able to take time today to reach out to at least two other bedrest mamas?

Also, I'm really looking forward to Thursday's Live Chat at 2 pm Eastern/11 am Pacific. We have the best time when we can get a few of you on together. Please let me know if you can attend. Be sure to set an alarm on your phone so that you don't miss it. http://www.keepemcookin.com/live-chat/

Keep 'em cookin'!

Hi, Dimitrula.

I've been thinking about you. How did it go with your scan?

Hello! A big welcome to our many new ladies who joined last week! And to our oldies but goodies, congrats for still being here! EVERY day counts! So give us an update: How many weeks are you? Why are you on bedrest? Any appointments this week?

I hope you all can join us Thursday at 2 pm Eastern time for the Live Chat. It's always fun, but even more so when we have several moms on. In the meantime...

Keep 'em cookin', mamas!

Hi, ladies! Thanks for connecting with each other. I'd like to personally invite both of you to our Live Chat today at 2 pm Eastern. I hope you'll check it out now and make a screen name if you'd like. http://www.keepemcookin.com/live-chat/

Sending positive thoughts to you both!

Hi there! It's almost August and here you are! Your dedication to your babies is wonderful.

Just for fun, share with us which TV shows you are watching. I'm kind of embarrassed to admit how much TV I've been watching late at night, but I HAVE to let my brain zone out after a packed day with work and the kids home for the summer. You need to give your brains a break, too. Anyone have any recommendations for a comedy, or something just silly? Any dramas to take your mind off things? New seasons of Stranger Things and Orange Is the New Black are out.

Keep 'em cookin', mamas! Hope to see you on the Live Chat Thursday!

"You can learn many things from children.
How much patience you have, for instance."

Ain't that the truth! And sometimes even before they are born!

Let us know how many weeks along you are, and tell us how you're feeling. Do you have any appointments this week or any news to report from last week? Be sure to set an alarm for Thursday's Live Chat at 2 pm Eastern/11 am Pacific.

Looking forward to hearing from my ladies!

My little guy will celebrate his 11th birthday this week. The time has gone way too fast! And that means KeepEmCookin.com is closing in on 11 years old, too! My 15 weeks on bedrest with him is what inspired me to create this group.  ;D

Tell us how many weeks along you are, and get us up to date on anything that happened last week.

Keep 'em cookin', mamas!

Music! Take some time today for music.

First, think of a song that has always inspired you, like the theme from Rocky, or "Roar" by Katy Perry, or a favorite workout song. Next, pick a song that will take you to another time and place in your life when you were carefree, young and idealistic. Finally, pick a song that means something special to you and your partner, perhaps a song from your wedding or a song from when you first started dating. Don't underestimate the power that music can have on your mood!

As always, let us know how many weeks along you are and how the past week has been. And, tell us a song that inspires you. Here are a few links to get you started:

"Ain't no Mountain High Enough" by Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hO_PWF0bmoM
"Fighter" by Christina Aguilera: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PstrAfoMKlc
"Stronger" by Kelly Clarkson: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xn676-fLq7I
"Survivor" by Destiny's Child: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wmc8bQoL-J0
"Happy" by Pharrell Williams: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6Sxv-sUYtM

And one more for those who won't give up ... and will keep ridin' 'til they can't no more ... "Old Town Road": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yCeoVwOHx4
