    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    I don't really have any advice as I haven't been through that. But maybe you could designate a certain time each day and play a board game together or something like that that doesn't require a lot of activity on your part.

    Good luck though, I couldn't imagine!

    Hi!
    I was put on bedrest during my second pregnancy for IUGR. It's hard with another kiddo running around. My husband wasn't home and I was alone with our, at the time, 2 1/2 year old. I would lay around all day too, but when it came time for my son to play, I would lay around on the floor and play trucks or do a puzzle with him. Low key activity so that he wasn't bored out of his mind and feeling neglected. Good luck! I know it's no fun, but it's for a reason.
