Looks like it's Netflix-and-chill time for Ali Fedotowsky. And I don't mean that in the slang-for-hookup kind of way.

According to Us Weekly, the 32-weeks-pregnant former Bachelorette—who just happens to be our sister publication Fit Pregnancy and Baby's June cover girl with Catherine Giudici!—has just been put on modified bed rest.

"I have this thing called uterine irritability where I have contractions all day," she explained. "So, like, every two minutes I get contractions."

Well, that sounds... fun.

And according to the 31-year-old mama-to-be, the contraction pain isn't even the worst part. What is? Being confined to the couch. "I have to direct my fiancé, Kevin [Manno], like, 'Hey, can you do this? Can you do this?'" she explained. "And I don't like that. I like getting up and doing things."

One person's bummer is another person's wishful thinking, I guess. Because being forced to kick back all day and boss my husband around while he waits on me hand and foot is kind of like my ultimate dream!

But not for this super-excited mama. "We're trying to finish the nursery, but I just have to sit on the couch and watch him do everything," she said. "So it's a little bit of a bummer."

And as for that other meaning of Netflix and chill—sorry, Kevin, but it's not gonna happen. Because while Fedotowsky told Fit Pregnancy and Baby that she feels sexier than ever while preggers, she also admitted that she is not up for having sex while pregnant at all.

"Mentally, I can't get past the fact that something so adult is happening in the presence of my little baby," she explained. "I mean, we'll be intimate once in a while, but it's not the same. All I think about is the baby. And when I was sick during the first trimester, I was like, 'Get the hell away from me. If you come near me with that thing, I will strangle you!'"

Hilarious! And don't worry, Ali. We promise you'll get your mojo back after you push that baby out. It may take a while, of course, but you'll get there.
