Being on bedrest is hard. People think it would be nice to be 'lying around' all day, but I consider it hard work. It is physically and emotionally draining. A routine and mental stimulation (I took many photographs of my pregnant self and things around me) helped alot to feel better and keep my sanity. I did change out of my pyjamas every day and put on my 'day clothes' (something like yoga pants and a nice t-shirt). It helped alot to feel better to have a routine of day/night activities.
I was on bedrest for 2 weeks prior to giving birth and it felt endless. I cannot imagine how hard it is after 5 weeks.

I don't want to sound extremely vain with this post, but hopefully y'all will be empathetic...I know this in no way compares to real pregnancy complications, so please don't judge me.

I feel like crap! I have been on bed rest for 5 weeks and wearing mostly pjs, no makeup, bed hair each day. I feel ridiculous getting dressed or putting on make up but I am starting to feel extremely unattractive and depressed. Coupled with moderate weight gain, a husband too scared to have sex with me and hormones, I am pretty bummed. If I do put on makeup and do my hair, I get pissed when my husband doesn't immediately ravage and/or compliment me excessively.

I don't have any issues with being on bed rest because I know it's what's best for my little guy. But, with ten weeks to go, I know I can't continue doing what I am doing.

Do any of you feel the same? How are you dealing?
