Im 21 weeks pregnant with my twin boys and im now on meds and bed rest to stop my contractins. Anyone else get put on bed rest? What did you do to keep yourself and your other child busy while you are stuck in the house? My daughter is 2 and a half and we live in an upstairs apartment so i cant even go down the stairs to check the mail or anything with her now

have her get in bed with you and make it a game. Read her books, play games and basically anything you can do while in bed. Take advantage of this time to teach her to count, colors, new words she will shock it up at that age. I only have the one but I was on bed rest with her and I know I will be with the next one too and since I am a stay at home mom have thought alot about what I would do to keep her busy. Good luck hope this helped.

Yes! Find some good shows to watch, or craft type stuff, games depending on your child's age, and I just recently learned how to crochet.I think it is addicting(go figure). You can start your Christmas cards, Halloween treat bags, write letters, and play toys with your child. Make puppets. Sorry just randomly thinking. If you want more ideas let me know!
