Making the Best of Bed Rest / Monday Roll Call for September 17, 2018
« on: September 17, 2018 at 01:18 PM »
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.

Looking forward to your updates!

Keep 'em cookin'!

Hi, Quapamama.
Big congrats on 31 weeks and counting! I took my daughter for a walk around the neighborhood the day I got home. I couldn't wait to get outside. Maybe you'll get some cute fall photos with the changing leaves with her when she arrives (in several weeks, of course!).

Positive thoughts coming your way!

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!

Making the Best of Bed Rest / Monday Roll Call for September 4, 2018

So it's actually a Tuesday Roll Call. Yesterday was Labor Day and I spent most of the day offline. How about that? And now the kids are back to school. Anyone else have kids heading off to school today?

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...

Making the Best of Bed Rest / Monday Roll Call for August 27

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 bedrest. 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'!

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/

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?

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!
