I'm going stir crazy!!! and it's only day one.. *sigh* luckily i'm not on bed rest, per say i jus thave to take it easy as i can't walk very far so i can still do a few thing around the house a little at a time but i'm a person tha tneeds to be on the go and doing something at all times... this is going to be a verrrrry long 9.5 weeks!
I hear you there....
First two days were a shock for me...day three I felt bad for myself and cried from having a horrible back pain... day four I started getting used to the idea for not being able to do anything for the next 3.5 ( hopefully ) weeks.
I have created a routine for myself. I cannot help to wake up early. I am up between 6 - 7 am. I eat my breakfast and go back to sleep. I try to sleep till 10 and then spend a couple of hours searching the web. And so on.. all day long... TV series are saving me, some reading, planning things in my head and counting down days. My next highlight is Friday. It is pretty pathetic to be looking forward to the cervix check.. but I can't help it ..lol
At first I was very careful and tried to do exactly what my doctor said - rest on my left side. Now I realize that it is simply impossible.. so I rotate my sides and back with giving more preference to the left side of course.
I just understood that feeling bad for myself is not going to help. It is a different type of life. Today I was kinda happy that I don't have to go to work anymore. It took me almost a week to get to this point. I love my job!!!
I have my ups and downs. Right now I am on an up moment... My responses will be completely different when I hit the bottom..
22 days to go...
Hang in there mama! You are at 30 weeks right now, it means that you might be kept off yoiur feet until you hit 36. It is this way for me... I hope you doctor has the same set of mind!
Thanks Claire1979 for my awesome siggy.

Creating a routine is the best thing I've found. It makes you feel like you've still got some structure to your day. I've been on bed rest for 12 weeks now and I've got another about another 5 weeks to go (if I make it that far).
Internet, word searches, tv, sleep... and I try not to think about it. I just live in the moment and take each day as it comes. If I were to really think about the time and how much bedrest i've done or have left, I would go insane. LOL
