Bed Rest/Modified Bed Rest Request

I'm 27w 2d and I had my gallbladder removed 6 days ago. I know I'm still recovering from surgery but I'm experiencing some of my old hyperemesis symptoms and if I am up of my feet standing, walking doing anything I get nauseous, dizzy and exhausted. It's not dehydration and my blood pressure is great. The only thing that relives the symptoms moderately is lying down. I'm going to my doctor tomorrow and I'm thinking about asking for modified bed rest but I'm not sure how that will go. Is this a logical request?

    If you think you need it then yes discuss it with your doctor.
