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?

Who's still pregnant? How many weeks are you now?

Has anyone delivered since last Monday's roll call?

--Angela  :D

Hey, ladies! Send Leony some love when you can. Here's her latest post. She's going through some very tough times now.

I've been thinking about you a lot and what a strong person you are! Your frustrations are completely understandable, and I give you so much credit for being able to express how you feel right now. Let it out, it helps. I had been thinking about what terrible timing it was for your husband to being going through cancer while you are going through placenta previa. But, then I thought maybe the timing was somehow right. Without the day-to-day distractions around the house and the daily grind of your jobs, maybe this is a special time for you both to focus only on each other, and of course your baby.

Life on bed rest is so very slow, but perhaps your life has slowed down right now for a reason. Time is standing still for you and your husband.

I hope you don't think I'm crazy or not sensitive for saying all this. I have just seen a lot of challenging situations with many women where it all really did make sense later on. Perhaps your challenging life is what brought you and your husband together, and your strength and love can help him keep going. And your baby can keep you both moving forward.

You have all the love of all the moms who have come before you! We support you! Big hugs across the ocean!!! Love, Angela

How is everybody? How many weeks are you?

What have you been doing to stay occupied? Do you have any websites or books to recommend to the group?


Holidays on bed rest can be especially tough, so I hope everyone made it through Valentine's Day without any snags!

A Twitter/KeepEmCookin friend delivered yesterday--full term! And we had three(!!!) moms deliver on Friday. The two daughters were inductions, due to their mothers' health, and the son came on his own terms. All three were early, but in the 33 to 36 weeks range, rather than the earlier weeks that would have been likely if these moms hadn't done such a great job being proactive about their care and serious about their time on bed rest. So proud of these moms!

And now on to a new week! Who's still cookin'? How many weeks? Any appointments coming up?

How's everybody doing? Who's still cookin'? Anyone have any doctors appointments this week?

It's been just over 18 months since I was cookin' Little Guy, but I KEEP having pregnancy dreams. All...the...time. They're usually a little bit exciting, but mostly stressful. What's up with that?

Let me hear from you, ladies!

Making the Best of Bed Rest / Monday Roll Call for February !

It's February! You've made it to another month!

How is everyone doing? How many weeks are you? Still on bed rest? Did anyone have any OB appointments last week? How about this week?

Looking forward to hearing from you!

With my first pregnancy, there were two times I ended up at labor and delivery for crazy contractions after eating some very delicious (and very salty) cream of crab soup. With my second pregnancy, I didn't even go NEAR that restaurant! So, this got me wondering if other women had experienced the same thing. I posted the question on Twitter.

Question: My BH/preterm labor contractions often got worse whenever I ate salty food. Anyone else have that problem?

*I did when I was pregnant. It's because dehydration make BH / contractions stronger. Drink lots.

*Probably dehydaration from the salt?

*Yes. Many things did that for me including salt(hi blod pressure), not enough food, & stress. Had preeclampsia last preg.

Please share your experiences and opinions!

Making the Best of Bed Rest / Deserted Island: What would you bring?
« on: January 12, 2010 at 02:31 PM »
Everyone on bed rest needs entertainment recommendations. Tell us 2 movies, 2 songs and 2 books you would take if you were stranded on a deserted island.

And if you want to compare bed rest to being stranded on a deserted island, go right ahead!
