Bedrest is the pits. I know every day I say I wish I could sit on my butt all day but once a doctor says I have to, all I can think of is how badly I want to power clean my entire house. Luckily, these days there are planty of things that can make bedrest a little easier.
1. Netflix, Netflix, Netflix
Gone are the days where you have to drive somewhere and rent a movie. With Netflix you can watch your favorite movies and even binge watch entire TV series from the comfort of your own couch!
2. Read a good book
Whether you're reading your favorite novel or reading up on pregnancy, childbirth, and parenting, there is plenty to keep your mind busy.
3. Pamper Yourself
It's really amazing how great you feel after you get a new haircut or get your nails done. See if your stylist makes home calls and if not see if a friend will come have a mani/pedi party with you!
It sounds obvious but nap as much as you want. Sleep is good for you and good for baby.
5. Have lunch dates
Ask friends to come over a few times a week to have a lunch date. Get take out and enjoy the company of another person!
Sometimes you find yourself on bedrest with children in the house. This is an entirely different situation and is of course much trickier! Keep an eye out for my next post "5 Ways to Survive Bedrest with Children."
