Making the Best of Bed Rest / Monday Roll Call for September 20th
« on: September 20, 2010 at 07:12 AM »
Hello everyone!

How was your weekend? And what are you looking forward to this week?

I'm looking forward to the arrival of my second niece, whose due date is today! My sister in law's blood pressure has been creeping into the danger zone (either number above 140/90), so I wouldn't be surprised if she was induced in the next day or two. I'm praying that her blood pressure spike is just temporary, because the risk of preeclampsia continues 6 weeks postpartum.

I've seen many women here on the Forum and on Twitter (follow me here: http://twitter.com/KeepEmCookin) dealing with pregnancy induced hypertension and preeclampsia over the last two weeks, so I'm pasting this link to our preeclampsia discussion and posts here: http://bit.ly/9UWHmj.

Looking forward to your updates! Keep 'em cookin'!  :)

Making the Best of Bed Rest / Monday Roll Call! September 13th
« on: September 13, 2010 at 08:39 AM »
How is everyone doing? Give us an update! How far along are you? Anything new to report (like cervix length, dilating, more contractions)?

If you can, share with us something that has made bed rest easier to deal with, or maybe something you say to yourself to help get you through. I often told myself (and my irritable uterus), "In this moment, you are not contracting, so this is a good moment. Take a deep breath and enjoy it."

Looking forward to your responses! Also, for updates and posts during the day, be sure to follow KeepEmCookin on Twitter: http://twitter.com/KeepEmCookin

And, I post an Idea of the Day every weekday here: http://www.keepemcookin.com/bedrest.aspx

Happy Labor Day! Of course, any day could be Labor Day around here, right?  :D

Make the most of today and spend some time catching up with someone special--at home, on the phone or online! How is everyone doing? I know a few of you had trips to L&D last week to get checked out. Anyone have any OB or ultrasound appointments this week? What else are you looking forward to?

My friend Joanie at the organization Better BedRest is actively looking for women who have been on bedrest to talk with other women currently on bedrest a few times per month, for one month at at time. For example, you could volunteer just a few months out of the year. Training is provided by Better BedRest (www.betterbedrest.org), and volunteers can be from anywhere in the United States.

If you are interested in learning more, please e-mail me at angela@keepemcookin.com, or contact Better BedRest: 410-740-7662; info@betterbedrest.org

Sincere thanks,
Angela

Keep 'em cookin', mamas!  :D

P.S. Be sure you check out The Idea of the Day, every week day, here: http://www.keepemcookin.com/bedrest.aspx

Hello, my lovelies! Did we have any deliveries last week? And tell us who is still cookin' their big beautiful babies! How many weeks are you? Any appointments this week to look forward to?


535
What is everyone looking forward to this week?

536
Give us an update! How many weeks are you? Any news to report from last week? What are you looking forward to this week? Any appointments coming up?

Did we have any deliveries last week?

I was thrilled to see Leony return to the Forum a few days ago to let us know her daughter is doing great! Leony delivered at 30 weeks, and we hadn't heard from her since then (about 4 months ago), so it was so reassuring and inspiring to hear from her again. You can do it too!

Keep 'em cookin', mamas!

You've made it into July, ladies! 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. :)

I'll start.

My nose was broken by a cantaloupe. I was helping to unload a truck of cantaloupes at the farmers market where I worked the summer before college.

Tell us something random about you!

So I'm posting this on Sunday night because I'm excited to hear how everyone is doing! So tell us what you are looking forward to this week, how many weeks you are, and what your favorite bedrest food is.

I ate a lot of dried cherries when I was on bedrest, and also drinkable yogurts that I kept in a small fridge next to my futon on the floor in the living room. I wanted to be where all the action was with my then 2-year-old Miss Sunshine. Every day was a party on the floor! Kids are so adaptable!

Looking forward to your updates!
Angela
