Making the Best of Bed Rest / Monday Roll Call for May 22, 2017
« on: May 22, 2017 at 10:41 AM »
Hello, ladies!
So tell us what's new! Does anyone have any new books or movies to recommend to help pass the time? Also, does anyone want to propose a topic for our live chat tomorrow at 2 pm Eastern/11 am Pacific? Or, we can keep it open to discuss anything.

Keep those babies cookin'!

Hello, ladies!
It has been very exciting to see so many members join the Forum over the past week! You all are doing the most important job in the world and you deserve all the support you can get!

Can I get everyone to commit to reaching out to a friend this week? Invite a friend to come visit you, and maybe bring a meal from a favorite restaurant or bring you a snack food you've been craving. Or, call an old friend for a long chat. Is there a board game you haven't played since you were a kid? Play it. Staying connected to other people helps SO much!

Keep 'em cookin', mamas! And see you on the chat tomorrow!

How many of you thought you were going to have an April baby? You've made it to May! Whoohoo!

What's new? What are you looking forward to this week? Let's REALLY push to get on the Live Chat tomorrow at 2 pm Eastern/11 am Pacific time time. It's so fun when we can get at least three moms on:  http://www.keepemcookin.com/live-chat/

A big welcome to the many new members of the Keep 'Em Cookin' community who have joined us this past week! I'm thrilled you found us! And many thanks to ALL of you for the great support you're providing one another. You are an amazing group of women!

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!

“I am extraordinarily patient, provided I get my own way in the end.”
-- Margaret Thatcher

And you will get your own way, ladies! One day at a time...  ;)

Do any of you have a mantra or something you say to yourself to stay motivated during bedrest? For me, my mantra was: "Right now, I am exactly where I am supposed to be." Also, "These weeks (or months) will change the life of my child forever."

Keep 'em cookin',

Making the Best of Bed Rest / Monday Roll Call: Lookin' Good, Mama!
« on: April 10, 2017 at 12:20 PM »
Hello, ladies!

How do you look? I know it may seem silly to get dressed or put on makeup to sit around the house, but you might find that it boosts your spirits! It was really tough to style my hair with no mirror, but I still found it relaxing to brush and blow dry my hair. And when I had visitors, a quick stroke of lipstick seemed to help me feel like myself again. And don't underestimate the power of a body lotion in your favorite scent.  :)

What are YOUR beauty tips for bedrest? Do you feel like your appearance can have an effect on your mood? Feel free to offer your thoughts, or just let us know what's new and how many weeks along you are.

Hello, you wonderful mamas! I'm looking forward to hearing everyone's updates! Any April Fool's Day babies?

Does anyone want to post any belly pix on our Facebook page? http://www.facebook.com/KeepEmCookin Thought that might be fun!

Making the Best of Bed Rest / Monday Roll Call! Dinner on the Terrace
« on: March 27, 2017 at 12:54 AM »
Welcome to another Monday Roll Call!

I know it can be tough to stay motivated, so I thought it might be good to share the things that brighten your day most. For me, the highlights of bed rest were negative FFN tests, seeing my babies on ultrasound, and having my husband paint my toenails. One night he set up a "romantic" dinner on a card table next to our bed. We called it "dinner on the terrace." What keeps you going?

And as always, let us know how many weeks along you are and if you have any appointments to look forward to this week. If you had any appointments last week or any trips to L&D last week, let us know how those went.

Hey, ladies!

Who's still cookin'? Any deliveries last week? Any St. Patrick's Day babies? What do you ladies have planned for this week to help pass the time?

I won't be available for the Live Chat tomorrow, but if any of you ladies want to log on at 2 pm Eastern to chat, please feel free, and let me know so I can promote it on social media.

Keep 'em cookin',

"Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and freedom."
                                                                         --Viktor Frankl


So, ladies, what do you wish you could respond to differently? Your partner? This pregnancy? Your children? Your thoughts?

How are you responding now, and what would it look like or what would you say or think to respond differently? How will it free you?

I'm looking forward to your updates, ladies.

I've noticed that our turnout for the Tuesday live chats has been small the last couple of weeks. Is there something about the chats that we could do differently? Would you like to receive a reminder e-mail? Just let me know...

Hugs and kisses, ladies!  :-*

Will you be doing anything special with your sweetie for Valentine's day? I know holidays can be extra tough when you are on bedrest, but hopefully you will be able to enjoy a meal or a movie together. Finding time for romance (or just feeling connected) is especially tough when you're on bedrest. You really have to work hard to make those opportunities happen.

And for those who think St. Valentine can take a hike and keep on walking, what are you looking forward to this week?

I'm looking forward to your updates and to seeing you all on the live chat tomorrow!

Keep 'em cookin', mamas!

It's February 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 lately, but I HAVE to let my brain zone out after a packed day with work and the kids. You need to give your brains a break, too.

I've recently finished "Stranger Things," and am in the middle of "The Man in the High Castle." I really want to recommend "The Time in Between" and "The Paradise." Both of those are about women who push through their hardships and take charge of their lives. They rock it! Like you.  ;)
