My Adventures on Bed Rest While Pregnant | Vol. 5

This was a rough week. Pregnancy discomfort and emotions both kicked in and being on bed rest doesn’t make them any better. I’m hooked on a show called Parenthood and just about every episode brings me to tears. I love those Bravermans!

Thursday – Saturday

Nothing happened. A little online shopping and plenty of couch sitting.


I officially hit boredom. I was so uncomfortable that I could not enjoy anything. No magazines (and I have a serious magazine addiction), no books, no TV. I was just miserable. On top of that the neighbors were all partying which included LOUD music. Ugh!


More loud music. More yelling. More boredom for me.


(Hair) Wash day! Ohhhh how exciting. This was an exhausting task. I have a ton of hair and since being pregnant it’s 10x thicker…and a lot less manageable.

Later on a trip to Walgreen’s literally lit up my life! This was my first time out in six days! I paid way too much for the things I needed but I knew B didn’t have it in him to do Target after working all day. Honestly, my hair wore me out and I didn’t have energy for Target either. After that a trip to Popeyes for dinner and back to my couch I went.


No appointment today, luckily it’s tomorrow or I might lose my mind. Today’s task was a mani & pedi. This was probably the last pedi I give myself for months to come. It was an uncomfortable ordeal.

Just as I was about to wrap up this post B called and told me to get dressed. I forgot we needed to FedEx something. On the way to FedEx we stopped to check out the potential baby shower venue. LOVE IT! It’s perfect for what we need. Not too big, not too small, great price. FedEx was closed so we headed to Coldstone! I opted for a pint of birthday cake flavor with a brownie.

Ok, so that was my week, not very exciting. I’m thinking I’ll catch a movie Monday evening. Something to get out the house for a few hours where I can sit the entire time.

If you have any ideas for hobbies or activities please comment below.

    I’ve never been on bed rest, but I can just imagine. On our busiest days we dream of sitting around doing nothing, but when that comes to reality it’s really a hard pill to swallow.

    I bet you could put together some really awesome inspirational gift guides for moms to be as a little wink to your baby shower guests. Bless you, baby, and dad!
