I was on bedrest from 7 weeks until my son was born

I spent the last two months in the hospital. Matty was 6 weeks early.

My mother and friends cooked up some meals for the freezer. My ex was not able to handle the fact that our son was going to have a birth defect and basically was of no help at all. My friend moved in and she would leave my meals in a cooler by the couch (we had a two story house so I slept down stairs) before she would go to work in the morning. I planned meals and clipped coupons during the day.

The most important thing is having a healthy baby and keeping your little one inside as long as possible. Don’t worry about housework, errands etc.

Everything will work out in the long run.

I was an bedrest for months before each of my children were born. I could ONLY get up to go to the bathroom! To pay all our bills (we had quite a lot as I was not able to work) we even applied for a couple of no credit check installment loans from an online company.

With pregnancy #1, my husband would make me a sandwich and put it in the fridge (I would get it on my way back from the bathroom). We also bought canned drinks so I could just grab one when I got my sandwich. He did all the cleaning and cooking when he got home in the evenings.

With pregnancy #2, I had my daughter (then age 2). I would read books to her during the day and watch some T.V. with her. When I was thirsty, she would get me a canned drink from the fridge. My husband would make us breakfast before he left in the morning, come home during his lunchbreak and make us lunch, and come home and make us supper and clean up. He was such a sweetie pie.

That was alot of sacrifice on his part that I appreciated sooo much!

Good Luck!
