Moving while pregnant!?

I'm currently 21 weeks pregnant, my baby girl is due June 16th. and I'm looking to move into a new place by May 1st.. anyone have any advice on if it's a good idea to move before baby gets here or wait til after she's born. I'm just wondering if it will be difficult having to buy new things for a house as well as a new baby in the same time frame. Advice!?

I'm 21 weeks with a girl ALSO,  my due date is  June 16th !! , I want to move in July at least , I think it WOULD be better to wait until the baby is hear but if its a urgent or anxious situation I would move may 1st and get to set up my house & nesting ♥ good luck.

I'm 21 weeks with a girl as well. Due june 17th though lol. We're planning on moving to our new home at the end of this month. I think it's a good idea to move now. You'll need to be settled by the time the baby arrives. Good luck, and congrats!

I moved at 15weeks pregnant.  It wasnt hard. But I cant imagine moving after the baby was here!

I'm 21 weeks with a girl also due June 19.. We are moving to a new place in a new town at the end of the month! Its a little stressful having to switch doctors and all that but overall I think it will be enough time to get things set up and ready for when she arrives!

I'm 27w5 due due May 3rd and I'm planning on moving before my baby boy arrives. Hopefully by mid March. I just think it would be so much harder to move once baby is here. I can definitely understand where your coming from. Good luck!

Move now while you can help as much as you can before you get uncomfortable! I had to move into my new place 38 weeks and I'm due tomorrow. I feel so worthless cause I layed around and hardly helped. The house is still a mess and the babies room isn't finished! I'm just tired all the time plus have a uti right now.

I moved into my new house last week and im 33weeks. Id definitly move before. It will be harder when the baby is here with restless nights and the demands of a newborn. Thats tough by itself let alone doing it while the struggle of movin as well. At least you got time to settle before the baby is here. Dont leave it as late as I have though. Ive found it hard. I cant help and no one will let me do anything.Move asap is my advice!

When i was about 20 weeks me and my fiance bought a house and we ended up remodeling the entire house and finishing the baesment. I worked on the house up til i had my boy 2 weeks ago. id say move asap bc the farther along you get the harder it is to move and fix up your home.
