    just started maternity leave - i'm bored

    Hello, I am Liz and I just started my maternity leave and I feel like I need to do something
    more around the house rather than sit, clean and cook. I was thinking of may be trying
    some training from home. Has anyone undertaken something like that, and do you think it
    would be a good idea? If some of you has tried out some home study course, would you
    please recommend it to me?Thanks.

      When the baby comes you'll have more to do than sit/clean/cook.

      Once you add "Try to get some sleep" to the list, you'll be busy for a while!

        Do you have a SCI? If so, how has your pregnancy gone? Any problems or complications?

          thank you all

          Hi, thanks for all your replies! SO far, knock on wood, I haven't have any serious problems with my pregnancy, other than the usual discomforts. I was kind of leaning towards some distance training course may be, that i can do from home, while i still have some time. My husband is all day at work so I am mostly all by myself now, my friends are working as well....I know i won't have any time pretty soon, but until then i just thought it would be nice to develop myself further....Any ideas?

            Hey, Liz. Do you have a spinal cord injury or were you just bored, web surfing and somehow landed here?

            Good luck with your pregnancy.

                found what i was looking for

                I found something that I think would be quite useful for all corporate mothers on maternity leave, who are used to keeping their mind occupied. I signed up for a self-paced distance training bookkeeping course that also gives me a diploma, and I can even change or expand my career - www.skills-4-success.com. I am also thinking of going to self-employed bookkeeping, as it can be quite lucrative; and these people offer absolutely everything to start such a career, they will even make me a mini website! On top of this - if I fail on an exam - they put me through the course a second time free of charge. I am really happy I found something like this - they were recommended by a friend of mine, as they also offer you 10% discount if you are on maternity, but even without the discounts - it is still quite affordable.
                Their free number is 08000-75-8000; I really recommend checking something like that if you are interested of course.

                  Liz, this site is for people with spinal cord injuries and their family members. You will find many forums on the web for able-bodied women who are pregnant. I am not sure why you are still coming here, but it is starting to look a little like spam if you are promoting a business. (KLD)
                  The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.

                    sorry

                    Oh, I apologise if it looks that way. I am sorry I did not know this a site only for women with spinal injuries.
                    I will not be bothering you any more.
                    I hope that you will be all alright and that you won't have a lot of problems with your maternity. I wish you a lifetime of hapiness with your families.
