After having spent 5 weeks on hospitalized bedrest i have 2 more weeks of bedrest to go at home. I'm only allowed up to the bathroom and shower (and my Dr appointment which is scaring me). I have lost all my strength. I can't stand up straight because my back can't support the weight of my belly. I can hardly stand long enough to brush my teeth, we had to install a handle in the shower so i can wash my hair.
I'm not sure how i'm going to make it to my Dr's offie tomorrow. its at the back of a office building and i know i can't walk that far. my diabetic clinic appointments will be at the hospital so i can use a wheelchair there. my mom is trying to track down a wheelchair to borrow for tomorrow.
How an i supose to deliver a baby let alone care for a baby. I know i could not hold a baby for  very long right now sitting down let alone standing up

I think at doctors offices they usually have a wheel chair, maybe call and ask!  But good luck tomorrow!  Bedrest does blow something horrid!  But the 2 weeks will pass by quickly!  Ask your doctor about some exercises you can do while laying down that will help stregthen your legs and your back!  There are a few, but the doctor will beable to show you how to do them!  =)
