It’s difficult, but well worth it when you finally hold that healthy, beautiful baby.
The bed rest recommended will depend on each condition but if there is a threat for the pregnancy most likely refers to avoid any activity that could affect the product, but of course they can walk to use the restroom or stretch their legs, these limitations need to be discussed with your OB doctor who will know exactly the reason why you should be in bed rest.
Recline on your left side as much as possible which will increase the blood supply to your baby.
Majority of the day.... The patient can however be up for bathroom
use, showers, personal hygiene and in most cases for limited
periods of time to take or prepare meals, etc. Paul Schell
Only on your feet when you need to go out for appointments or to the restroom
Hope this helps.
Multiple studies have shown a NEGATIVE impact on both the mother's psychological and physical well-being, with muscle wasting, anxiety, and stress. Studies have also shown NO BENEFIT to babies, unless perhaps with triplets or higher order multiples, and even then. it is extremely controversial if there are any benefits and certainly there can be significant worsening of mother's psychological and physical health. Have a great day and be ACTIVE unless you truly must be less active, which is highly unlikely,
Good luck with your pregnancy.
P.S. Also NO benefit shown in preventing preterm birth either.
