« on: July 02, 2013 at 10:02 PM »
Hopefully we can swap ideas to pass the time!

- did more of my online pre-natal classes
- facebook
- had a long chat with my mom on the phone
- played video games on my husbands ps3
- napped
- netflix
- read the newspaper

Good idea!

-read a book
-started to learn to crochet using a book of instructions and YouTube videos
-chatted on the phone
-Facebook
-played a game on the iPad with my husband
-researched barbecues for when I can go outside again!

Ottawa33, which online prenatal class are you doing? I have been looking for one.

I'll second that...good idea!  Today I...

- Facebook (of course :) )
- did a grading for my online course (gotta be productive, right? :) )
- tried a little crochet flower I saw on YouTube ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XlWt0n0srfA ...I suck at crocheting, but this didn't turn out too badly!)
- worked a little on a chainmail bracelet (one of my other newly acquired hobbies)
- doctor's appointment/ultrasound
- watched neverending Mickey Mouse with my 2 year old :)
- in the process of doing another blog entry

Cheers!

Update: have cut myself off from facebook - it makes me bitter that everyone else is out and about enjoying their summers and I am stuck on a couch. BUT - did finish "The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency". Great book - already on the sequel.


KristaL, I don't know where you live, but here's the link to prenatal classes offered through Ottawa Public Health. I don't believe you need an Ottawa address to go through the modules...some of the information on health regulations may be different if you're not Canadian.

Thank you, Ottawa33! I am Canadian too (Halifax, Nova Scotia) and the site does not seem to require an Ottawa address. I was really disappointed not to be able to attend the prenatal classes I had registered for, so this should help. Thanks again! :)

Other fun bed rest activities I've been trying (seven weeks of bed rest so far!):
-Netflix
-Sudoku
-crosswords
-updating address book so I can send out thank you cards and baby pictures eventually!

@KristaL I'm a Nova Scotian too! I'm about 3 hours outside of Halifax on the Eastern shore! :D

When I went into preterm labor at 29 weeks I had a fun (sarcasm fully intended) ambulance ride up to the IWK :), on the plus side they have the best hospital food I've ever had up there :D

Andi-pants, that is so true about the food at the IWK! I was there for about a week when I was first found to have IC and the food was surprisingly good. The food staff would even call me in my room if I forgot to order! I am in Clayton Park so my biweekly appointments are actually at the IWK. Going to the doctor has become hugely entertaining now that it is my only outing.  :P

Jill, that's such exciting news! Hopefully the five weeks until 24 weeks will just be smooth sailing!

Ahh, we just moved down the shore in April but we used to live in Bedford, just off of Rocky Lake Drive (the road in between the Petro-Can and the Shopper's, across from the Super Store). I go for my appointments at a smaller hospital, really hoping everything stays stable. The IWK is wonderful but it is 3 hours from home! I am kind of disappointed that we had to move though, the IWK staff has been wonderful every time I've had to go there. My daughter has a problem with her immune system so we have spent many weeks with her on the children's side and everyone over there is fabulous as well :), it was no different when I was admitted onto the maternity ward. Wonderful people up there, they took great care of my LO and I while we were there.
