    has anybody tried to move house whilst pregnant?

    we are hoping to be in our new house 2 weeks before the baby is due.

    is there any stress-relieving advice out there???
    or advice on how to handle stressful partners???

    also i would like to know what you did to help during the move ... as we cant lift stuff etc...

    thanks!

    LOL Yvanne!!!

    Stress free for you Terrie would be to make sure you take it easy & let others do the work! I'd imagine if you do start doing stuff you will get stressy!

    As for your partner just offer him a brew :lol:

    Get the boxes in the right rooms & unpack from there - Like kitchenware, ornaments etc.

    Good luck with the move x x

    My advice hun, is for you to go and stay with a friend or relative and let all the work get done without you there.............you can soon nest and get things as you want them when you get there after all the hard work is done.....you really aren't going to feel like doing much, you really wont so don't get stuck in something that can make your blood boil! But make sure you clear concise instructions before you leave him to it :wink: xx

    yay ..... they've given us our moving date .... we should be in by the end of the month so that leaves us loads of time before the baby is born to sort the house out etc
