I was on bedrest for my last trimester, and delivered at 36 weeks. Some mornings I wakes up thinking how nice it would be to lie down, put my feet up and watch TV all day
But I remember at the time I was miserable!
I spent my days resting, sleeping, reading, watching TV, writing letters, trying cross stiching, writing Christmas Cards and on the phone. Oh how I wish I had a lap top!
Tell your friend to accept any and all help from friends! If people offer to deliver meals, say thank you! If someone offers to walk the dog, accept graciously! It is so vitally important for the baby that you stay off your feet, but it is hard to do when you see so much that needs to be done. As her friend, offer to stop buy to chat and visit, and maybe put in a load of laundry every now and then!
Good luck to your friend!
