Quoting O ♥ G:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Blair Waldorf (SuperKink):</b>" I wanted a VBAC so badly!! ... [snip!] ... always wondered how it works to be on bed rest with young children. That would be super hard. Mine is 3 and I can't imagine!"
Well, we moved in with my parents in January and I got put on bed rest in February and she was born March 2nd. So for a month, my SO and my parents helped with my 5 year old. But like I said, SO was not helping me with everything, so there were times where I got up and did stuff myself. And one night my mom and I drove over to the apartment to pack up stuff because he wouldn't go with me. And she made me supervise and wouldn't let me lift anything. But I think even being on my feet that long (No chairs in an apartment with just a few boxes left) wasn't good for me. I'm pretty sure I was out of bed more than was good for me.
What the doc told me was to tell my family they needed to help with DS and keep me in bed or I'd be hospitalized for bed rest and then they'd be forced to take care of DS anyway.
