Just wanted to see if anyone else out there was enjoying bedrest this pregnancy?!
I will be 32 weeks on Thursday and I am supposedly on bedrest until 36 weeks. So I have about 4 1/2 weeks left until they release me! My Doctor put me on because after talking to me about the amount of contractions I have (way over the 12 a day limit he has) he decided to do a FFN test and it came back positive: ( So down I went! Also, after the swab he checked my cervix and his comment was "It is a little softer than I would like at this time"...LOL: ) So here I am hanging out on IVillage while my kiddos sleep, because really what else would I do?! Just kidding...it actually hasn't been as bad as I thought. I have been getting TONS of random things around the house organized...like pictures for example. Also, I have the ok to be out and about if I am in a wheelchair so I get out of the house once in a while. And of course, I do a little cheating here and there. I mean, come on, if I don't get up and changed my DS's diaper who is going to seriously? I am being as careful as I can, but I know my body and I must not be nearly as worried about going into pre-term labor as my Doc because I really don't think my body is going to: )
Anyway, how are the rest of you coping with bedrest?? Any tips and tricks you would like to share for getting thorugh it?
