Bedrest Mommies

Any mommies who are/were on bed rest, how did you keep your sanity?  I have been on bed rest off and on, but never more than a few days and never this strict.  My OB is still hopeful of getting us to 39 weeks before c-section so I am looking at 8 1/2 weeks of bed rest (unless baby has other ideas) I don't want my boredom to turn into being obsessive over baby stuff.  I have movies, books, and internet but there is only so much of that stuff I can do before I go crazy.

    I'm so sorry you're dealing with bed rest.

    Are there any crafts you like or think you might like? I've been hand sewing while laying down quite a bit and it's a great thing to do while also watching olympic coverage (because you can stop mid work and watch--there's not a ton of concentration required, at least for my projects!).

    I'm sorry that you're facing an extended bed rest.  I don't have any tips, but wanted to be sure you were aware of the weekly bed rest check-in that happens on the high-risk board:  https://forums.thebump.com/categories/high-risk-pregnancy

    Best of luck!

    I've been on bed rest since 23.5 weeks (I'm not a little over 27). I'm able to work from home so I've been doing that, although I can't really be as productive. Some days I wish I had taken ST disability instead of opting to work from home but I know that would get old very quickly. If I weren't working I think I would just read a lot of books to keep myself occupied.
