Making the Best of Bed Rest / Monday Roll Call for August 20, 2018
« on: August 20, 2018 at 02:23 PM »
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 tomorrow'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'!

Welcome to our new members! Thanks for joining, and I hope to see your Monday updates here! 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 tomorrow on the Live Chat. Set an alarm so you don't miss it!

Keep 'em cookin'!

Hi, Mrsoblack.
I'm sorry you're facing this challenge. It sounds like you have had a very difficult pregnancy journey.  :( Are you on bedrest in the hospital?

Hi, Fenrose.
Give us an update when you can. Looking forward to it!

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 tomorrow 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!

It's almost August 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 late at night, but I HAVE to let my brain zone out after a packed day with work and the kids home from school. You need to give your brains a break, too. A couple goofy-just-for-fun shows I have been watching are The Last Man on Earth and The Unbreakable Kimmy Schimdt. How about you?

Keep 'em cookin', mamas! Hope to see you on the Live Chat tomorrow!

Congrats, Amanda! I am so excited for you!

Ladies: Please come back next week with updates if you can. You are right that the success stories are so inspiring. I hope you'll continue to share yours!

23
Wow! Congratulations on 36 weeks and counting! Amazing! As far as measuring 33 weeks, that sounds like a total fluke. Maybe Baby has moved further down. How exciting that would be.

So what do you have planned for when you hit 37 weeks? Anything special with the kids? Dinner out with your partner? How about a haircut or pedicure? Live it up, mama!

Congrats again! Keep us posted...

"You can learn many things from children.

Ain't that the truth! And sometimes even before they are born!

Let us know how many weeks along you are, and tell us how you're feeling. Do you have any appointments this week or any news to report from last week? Be sure to set an alarm for tomorrow's Live Chat at 2 pm Eastern/11 am Pacific.

Keep 'em cookin', mamas!

Music! Take some time today for music.

First, think of a song that has always inspired you, like the theme from Rocky, or "Roar" by Katy Perry, or a favorite workout song. Next, pick a song that will take you to another time and place in your life when you were carefree, young and idealistic. Finally, pick a song that means something special to you and your partner, perhaps a song from your wedding or a song from when you first started dating. Don't underestimate the power that music can have on your mood!

As always, let us know how many weeks along you are and how the past week has been. And, tell us a song that inspires you. Here are a few links to get you started:

"Ain't no Mountain High Enough" by Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hO_PWF0bmoM
"Fighter" by Christina Aguilera: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PstrAfoMKlc
"Stronger" by Kelly Clarkson: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xn676-fLq7I
"Survivor" by Destiny's Child: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wmc8bQoL-J0
"Happy" by Pharrell Williams: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6Sxv-sUYtM

"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',

P.S. Our Live Chat will return next Tuesday at 2 pm Eastern time.

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.

We're closing in on the official start of summer! It's exciting to see time passing, but I know it can be a tough time as friends and family are having cookouts and weddings while you're stuck at home. This is a time when it is especially important to invite people over so that you don't feel quite so left out. Does anyone have suggestions on things you can do when visitors come over?

I'm looking forward to your updates! Hope to see you all on the Live Chat tomorrow.

Keep 'em cookin', mamas!

It's a new week! Anyone else have kids winding down the school year? Mine are done this week!

What are you looking forward to over the next few days? And if you don't have something special planned yet for this week, what will it be?

I've noticed that our turnout for the Tuesday 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...

Keep 'em cookin', mamas!
