When I'm pregnant I have painful varicose veins in my right leg, on bed rest there is no weight on my legs so they are pain free and not a blue vein in sight :-) I also appreciate not worrying about what to wear.

I'm getting caught up on all the books that I've been wanting read and taking the time to finally find what makes me happy. I have two degrees and still have no clue what I want to do or my purpose. Everyday I try to answer that question what is my purpose beside getting a healthy lil one here.

Bedrest graduate of almost 8 months here! keep up the positives mommas! Having a positive outlook can help you and our baby so much!!! Let me think back to my bedrest days. Lately I have been working full time overnights mostly so I can stay home with my son during the day, finishing my last semester of college and being a mom to a 8 month old. That has kept me so very busy! 

The thing I miss about bedrest is being able to get sleep! That is something I am severely lacking with my work hours. I miss sleep very much!
