    Hi guys, it's sooo nice to meet everyone here!

    I'm Jenny, a mum of two crazy hyperactive kiddos and a sweet dog, and currently on my 4th month of pregnancy. It's been crazy, and as my OBGYN advised me to be on bedrest until childbirth, I'm home and would like some company and talk with you guys :)

    Oh, is that your dog? It looks adorable! :)
    I read your post on your pregnancy, do take care and I am sending you my best wishes of good health for both you and your baby :)

    Oh bed rest, both a privilege and a problem. We sometimes want to just rest, but at times it can get boring and you'd wish you weren't on bed rest. Hope you get better soon :)

    Welcome to the forum, Jenny! Nice to meet you!

    P.S. Your dog is soooo cute!

    Thanks Honey!
    That's so true, it does get so boring. But the doggie helps with it, along with Netflix and food ;) :p

    How long have you been on bedrest now? I was on the same boat for like a whole month and it nearly drove me insane. :) netflix, books and a lot practice time on the ukelele helped me survive. Good luck! it's all going to be worth it! :)

    Hi Jenny! I guess it's time to download or rent movies and do a marathon so you won't get bored. :) When I was pregnant and had spotting, what I did was watch all the movies I like and read some books. It helped me relieve stress and at the same time catch up with some good movies.

    You can also cuddle that cute dog. :)

    Hi Jenny! I hope you're doing well, and oh my what cute spots your dog has :D
    Time to learn a new hobby for you! I love reading books and watching movies too, but that can only take you for a while. Maybe do some crafting?

    Hi Jenny!
    Thanks for welcoming me on my thread. :)
    You're lucky to have your kids and dog keep you company while you take time to rest.

    Welcome to the forum Jenny! We will keep you company during your bedrest. ;) so nice to meet you. I hope you would be able to share your journey. Will be interesting to see which route you will take on how you would keep yourself busy during bed rest. I am very lazy, my husband says (haha), which is why I will go the easier route, watching TV probably. :D Hoping you get to have a safe pregnancy!

    Thank you so much! :) I'm currently just playing gently with the dog and watching Netflix. But I am looking for other ways to pass the time.

    Hopefully by my next consultation my OB would let me walk around some more.

    Jenny, I highly recommend it. Any musical instrument would be great. I kept myself motivated by saying that my goal is to be able to use the instrument for playing lullabies for the baby. I was hoping for an easy way to put him to sleep. But instead, when my son hears the ukelele now, he gets all excited as if recognizing it, "hey, I know that sound! We're old friends!" hehe
