bed rest and guilt

Jamie - posted on 11/27/2010 ( 3 moms have responded )




Here is my question. I am on "light" bedrest. I can still drive short distances but most of my time needs to be on the couch which is very hard with a 2 1/2 yearold who is potty training. I also have lots of guilt built up because I cant do much with my daughter or take her any fun places. I only have about 6 weeks to go give or take but I dont know how to get past the guilt. I get so upset sometimes that I cry. Is this a normal feeling?

have you tried reading books and cuddles that seems to help your children feel better , I wouldn't feel guilty you are just following your doctors orders

I would say that it is a normal feeling. as some mornings i am so sick with this pregnancy I can't spend alot of time playing with my son, and i feel guilty that i can't just go "ok i feel better tag". he seems to be taking it kinda hard as hes always trying to pull me around to make me play with him more. Maybe try spending more cuddle time with her and try explaining it. it might make you feel better even if she cant quite understand it yet.

Good luck and congratulations.
