So bored I think I may lose my mind

Ugh...what do you single mommies do for entertainment while pregnant? I have no close friends or family, lost my job due to being sick all the time so money is sparse. I read and search the internet but all is boring me to death. What can I do?

Pintrest is amazing! You should download the application. It's basically a collection of links to websites and they are all categorised. So you get lots of recipes and diy tutorials for anything and everything. It's totally addictive

My husband is military so he is rarely home, besides weekends. (Sometimes) with my first pregnancy I seriously did nothing going the first half because of severe morning sickness. When I got better I was so bored. I started going for walks (even in the winter) and doing at home workouts for pregnancy (healthy for you and baby) that took up a lot of time. I would clean everyday (find something to clean or organize). If I was finished with all that. Netflix was my go too! I loved sitting and watching TV shows. HOWEVER, Being a stay at home is pretty boring til you have baby! Just try and stay active:) good luck!

I work full time. But if I didn't I would prepare the house for the baby. Organise, clean and paint her room and organise all the other rooms in preparation. Clean all the nooks and crannies I don't usually and then get on pintrest to find all the diy baby projects

My husband works a lot on the weekends, and I work later into the evening with my mornings free..so I am bored often. Usually I watch TV, play online games like candy crush and I've been big on jig saw puzzles recently.

I crochet, read and workout lightly. Find peace in the solitude. Change the way you see loneliness or boredom and you can find fulfillment in the smallest things.

My husband works nights on weekends so I get bored as well. I go onto my laptop and watch movies, Google youtube on fire and it's the first link, they have all the new movies that are out, or I'll craft something from previous bought stuff at michaels, pinterest diy crafts, that's where I get my ideas from!

Do you watch tv or have Netflix? I'm really into the lost series this weekend. I'm a full time teacher, but my husband works a lot of nights and weekends so I feel your pain. On the summers, I always teach myself something new. Last year I learned to crochet, so now I'm making baby blankets and other things for the nursery.
