Our expert says:
I assume that your blood pressure is normal. This sometimes goes up if you have leg swelling. If this is the case, then the growth of the baby may be related to a high blood pressure.
Bedrest in your case would imply taking things easy, i.e. sitting most of the time rather than being active. Talking on the phone and working on a laptop would not use up energy, so will not affect the baby.
