High-Risk Pregnancy

bedrest girls

I am feeling like such a slug. ALL I do is watch TV and I dont even seem bored with it!

I have so many thing I could be doing, crafting, writing cards, scrapbooking, reading. But I just sit here, like a slug, glued to my TV and laptop.

How do you find motivation to do anything else? Or does anyone else just watch tv endlessly?

Re: bedrest girls

  • I watch TV all day long, which I hate, and I wish I did something else, much like you I have plenty of other projects I could be doing, but nope- I lay on the couch w/ my laptop and my doggie and stare at the TV! :(

  • I've been doing the exact same thing as you. It took me 6 weeks of bedrest to write 20 thank you notes from our wedding because um...I'm busy laying around and just didn't feel like it dang it!

    Yep - this is me. I also found that since I stopped working - evidentially so did my attention span. I tried to find books that I would at least "learn" something. Hmmm - not getting very far with that. 

    But I have been trying to learn how to crochet - I made a beautiful scarf (while watching TV) and I attempted to make a hat. While it is finished, I don't think I can give it away as a gift....

    I learned to crochet too!  I've managed to do one row...and now I'm stuck because I don't know how to turn around! LOL My hubby will show me I just haven't had him do it yet since my hands have been hurting so bad the past few days. He's been working on a baby blanket for a few weeks and should have it done by tonight. Smile

  • I have definitely become an internet deals junkie (baby stuff, Christmas stuff) since being on bed rest.  I do other stuff too- lesson plans for school, lately more reading about delivery and breastfeeding, thank you notes for shower gifts, lots of talking on the phone with my mom.  But, some days I definitely feel lazier than others and just keep my eyes glued to the tv or playing around on the internet.  I think that even with a schedule, it's super hard to stay motivated when there's only so much you can do.
