Five Ways Prison Is Better than Bed Rest

1) Daily showers
2) One hour of exercise each day
3) Time spent outdoors on chain gang
4) Spending time with others in similar circumstances
5) Conjugal visits

Any other comparisons, ladies?

Hello! We had such a great live chat last week! I hope many of you can join us this week (Tuesday at 2pm).  How are you ladies feeling? Any appointments this week?

Also, feel free to post belly pics, or nursery pics, or whatever you'd like. To post a photo: reply to this message, then click on the pink text (below this text box) that reads "Additional Options." Then click on the oval that says "Choose File" to attach an image.

Making the Best of Bed Rest / Monday Roll Call for August 6th
« on: August 06, 2012 at 10:33 AM »
Hello!
Who's still cookin'? Any deliveries last week? My best friend delivered her baby girl yesterday -- a full-termer weighing in at nearly 9 pounds! What do you ladies have planned for this week to help pass the time?

Also, if you have any shopping to do on Amazon, please click the Kindle Fire link at the top or bottom of any page to get to the Amazon website. When you do, Amazon will give 6% of the purchase price of whatever you buy to KeepEmCookin. KeepEmCookin is self-funded, which means I pay for hosting and maintaining this site out of my own pocket. I'm happy to do it, of course, but every contribution helps!

Keep 'em cookin',
Angela

Making the Best of Bed Rest / Monday Roll Call for July 30
« on: July 30, 2012 at 10:12 AM »
You're closing in on August!

I remember reading this string of posts -- http://forum.keepemcookin.com/index.php?topic=1331.0 -- and thinking about my biggest bed rest regret. I felt so frumpy and depressed on bed rest that the last thing I wanted to do was be around other people. But that was exactly what I needed! I didn't want people to see my messy house and unstyled hair, and I felt like I wouldn't be a very good host. You know what? Your real friends don't care one bit! Those few times that I invited a friend over, or told a family member what I needed to make bedrest just a little bit easier, THAT is what I remember. Even now I'm still thankful for my college roommate who brought me my favorite chicken salad sandwich! Invite people into your space, and see how it makes you feel.

Now to Roll Call: How many weeks are you? How are you feeling? Any appointments coming up? What will you be looking forward to this week?

Keep 'Em Cookin', mamas!

Looking forward to hearing from my ladies! My little guy celebrated his 4th birthday this weekend. The time has gone so fast! And that means KeepEmCookin' is closing in on 4 years old too!

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

And by the way, did you know we have KeepEmCookin T-shirts? You can chose a design on any size T-shirt. For a laugh, check out the "Four Ways Prison Is Better than Bedrest" T-shirt: http://www.zazzle.com/angeladavids

So who is still cookin'? How many weeks? Any deliveries last week?

And let us know what you are looking forward to this week! Appointments? Visits from friends? A certain book, movie or TV show?

Think positive. Be proactive. Stay pregnant.  :)

So tell us how many weeks along you are, and get us up to date on anything that happened last week. Any appointments this week? And what do you have planned this week to keep you busy?

Making the Best of Bed Rest / Roll Call for Monday June 25
« on: June 25, 2012 at 09:01 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 just wanted to say a quick word about preeclampsia today. I never expected that I would get it, and no one ever does. It can come on quickly, so I want to encourage all of you to keep an eye out for its symptoms: high blood pressure, protein in the urine, hyperactive reflexes, pain under the right rib, sudden swelling, sudden weight gain, nausea or vomiting, shoulder pain, vision changes (spots, blurriness), headache, lower back pain, racing pulse, confusion, shortness of breath or chest pain. You can learn more at www.Preeclampsia.org. If you have ANY of these symptoms, report them to your doctor right away.

Hope to see you all on the live chat tomorrow!

Keep 'em cookin', mamas!

Making the Best of Bed Rest / Monday Roll Call for June 18
« on: June 18, 2012 at 08:32 AM »
It's a new week! How many weeks are you? Any OB appointments coming up? What are you looking forward to this week? (And if you don't have something special planned yet, what will it be?)

I've noticed that our turnout for the Tuesday live chats has been small the last few weeks. Is there a time that would work better for you all? Is there something about the chats that we could do differently? Just let me know...

Hello ladies!

Let us know how many weeks along you are, and tell us how you're doing.

What will you be doing to celebrate Father's Day? Order a special dinner? Help your kids make cards? Make a special card of your own? Have a stay-in movie night? Try not to be discouraged, just get creative.  :)

Tell us what's new! How many weeks are you? How are you feeling? Any appointments coming up?

We have a few wonderful advertisers (like Cervilenz and Isis Parenting) but most of the cost of running the Forum and the Chat Room fall to me personally. One way you can support KeepEmCookin is by clicking on the Amazon ads above and below and then make ANY purchase in ANY department. Amazon will donate 6% of the purchase price to KeepEmCookin. So, if you're ever shopping on Amazon anyway, please click the ads here first. Thanks SO much!
