Hello, ladies!

For women experiencing a high-risk pregnancy, and particularly those on bed rest, you're so focused on NOT delivering your baby that you may not think much about delivery. I wanted to share this quote on the power of giving birth, and to reassure you that you will be ready whenever the time comes!

“Birth is an opportunity to transcend. To rise above what we are accustomed to, reach deeper inside ourselves than we are familiar with, and to see not only what we are truly made of, but the strength we can access in and through birth.” – author Marcie Macari

I love that!

Question for you all: Would anyone be interested in me starting a private Facebook group? Would you be more inclined to post there instead of here?

Keep 'em cookin', mamas!

Making the Best of Bed Rest / Monday Roll Call for October 14, 2019

"I learned that we can do anything, but we can't do everything... at least not at the same time. So think of your priorities not in terms of what activities you do, but when you do them. Timing is everything."
--Dan Millman


And this is your time to cook! Let everything else fall aside...for now. So tell me what is new, ladies! What are you looking forward to this week? As always, let us know how many weeks along you are.

Keep 'em cookin', mamas!

Making the Best of Bed Rest / Monday Roll Call for October 7, 2019

Happy Monday!

I hope each of you will schedule something today to anticipate, and then tell us what you did. For example:

*Order a new book/movie/game that you have been wanting.
*Have a great friend bring you lunch or dinner from a favorite place.
*Ask someone to finally take care of that thing around the house that has been driving you crazy but you just haven't felt comfortable asking.

Remember that you are an important person doing an important job!  Don't hesitate to ask for the care and attention you need.   :)

If you're reading this, I hope you will post a message here. Something as simple as telling us how far along you are and how long you've been on bed rest helps other moms to know they aren't alone in this. Keep 'em cookin', mamas!

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 Thursday at 2 pm Eastern/11 am Pacific? Or, we can keep it open to discuss anything.

Keep those babies cookin'!

Welcome to our new members! Thanks for joining, and I hope to see your Monday updates here each week! It's a great way to get to know the other bedrest moms.

So ladies, let us know how many weeks along you are. What are you looking forward to this week?

I hope we'll have a great turnout Thursday on the Live Chat. It's so much fun when we can get three or four moms on at  once. Please take a moment to set an alarm on your phone. See you there! http://www.keepemcookin.com/live-chat/

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!

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!
