being taken off work — The Bump
March 2017 Moms

being taken off work

any other mama's being removed from work? I have asked my doctor to give me til the 20th as I have two short weeks coming up. But after that I'm off--my multiple sclerosis and blood pressure are why the obgyn is saying it's time to rest. I'm due March 15th and literally have no idea what I'm gunna do with myself.  I worked until a week before my due date with DS.

Re: being taken off work

  • No experience, but maybe now would be a good time to pick up a new hobby?

  • Second the new hobby idea. I recommend genealogy :-)
    And Call the Midwife on Netflix!

    I was going to suggest crochet.

    There are some great tutorials on youtube by the Crochet Crowd.

  • Ditto to crochet. When I was on bedrest with my last one I made a blanket.

  • Does crochet use a lot of fine motor skills? I get a lot of numbness in my hands from my MS
  • It can be tough if you get numbness anyway, but if you use thicker yarn and hold the hook and yarn loosely, that should help. Crocheting is what I do when I need to relax. It's so therapeutic!

     If I had to stay home from this point on, I might try working on photo books, read, catch up with friends I've been meaning to reach out to, make a labor music playlist, catch up on those little to-dos around the house, etc. And now I'm kinda jealous! Good luck!
