Tips for Moving while Pregnant in First, Second & Third Trimester
1. Hire a professional moving company. The only thing you should worry about is the life growing inside you. Calling in the professionals is the best step you can take if you need to move when you are pregnant. However, you will need to realize that it will cost money. Make sure you hire a reputable company if you won’t have any help. You can hire a company to do everything from packing your belongings all the way to unpacking at your new destination. Don’t settle and only hire a company you’re totally comfortable with. Get a few quotes and go with the one that is most dependable, offers good service that doesn’t cost the most. Remember that the most expensive company doesn’t mean it’s the best.
2. Prepare & Plan for the move. Do all you can to avoid any undue stress, mentally and physically. Have a good attitude and plan as much as you can beforehand. Everything will come together more easily if you start at least a month before your move, if you can. Anticipate potential problems ahead of time so you’re prepared for them. If you don’t have help start packing early so most of your belongings are packed before the big day.
3. Pace yourself when shifting to a new house while pregnant. It’s very important to take care of yourself. Do not overdo it and take breaks. Don’t rush and set goals that are attainable. Drink lots of fluids and make sure you eat regularly.
4. Organized packing. Organize your essentials into separate boxes and make sure they are labeled. This will make unpacking much easier and less stressful because items you don’t need right way can be unpacked when you can get to them.
5. Ask for help when packing & moving. If you can get help, get it. You are not capable of lifting heavy items without risking injury to your or your baby. Ask relatives, friends and neighbors in advance so they can plan on being there to help, so you can concentrate on labeling boxes.
6. See your doctor before moving to a new place. Don’t neglect doctor’s appointment. Talk with your doctor throughout the process so they can monitor your health. Your doctor will also be able to give you recommendations so you and your baby are properly cared for and will also need to transfer your health records to your new doctor.
