Moving can be chaotic, and moving when you are pregnant can be extremely stressful regardless of how far along you may be. There are so many things to worry about when you are going to a new home, and when you add in the stress of also having to keep the health of you and your baby in mind, you can end up frustrated. If you are in this situation, the tips from the experts here at Augusta Movers can help you move more efficiently.
Make a List
Your hormones are probably already making you tense, so to help stay calm and organized make a list of the tasks you need to complete. This will help you plan your time accordingly. Make sure to build in extra time in case you may not be feeling your best and need to take a break.
Pack In Advance
Packing is one of the most hectic parts of moving out. Instead of trying to do everything at once, pack as much as possible well in advance of your actual moving date. You can hire someone to come in on a weekly basis to help, or you can tackle a small portion of your home every week, whatever you choose, don’t be afraid to ask for help. Avoid lifting or moving heavy items, your helper or our trained movers here at Augusta Movers are happy to do this for you.
Label Your Boxes
When you spend so much time thinking about your baby it’s easy to forget what you packed and where you stored it. Labeling your boxes and keeping notes is a great way to keep track of everything and streamline your unpacking process at the same time.
Research Your New Location
Take some time in advance of your move to find out where key locations on near your new home. Knowing where the nearest grocery store and pharmacy are located will help you transition during this exciting time.
Find a Doctor
The last thing you are thinking about during a move is looking for a doctor, but when you are expecting, this should be one of the first things to cross off of your list. You can ask your current ob/gyn for a referral or you can locate one yourself. Make sure that you have your medical files transferred well before your move to make things go much more smoothly.
Make a Short Stay Box
Moving is pretty much packing up all your stuff and going to a new location, but unpacking and getting settled can take weeks. Instead of stressing out about things you can’t find, pack a special box of items that you will need to keep you comfortable for at least a week. That way, when you move, you will have all of your essentials on hand. The most important thing to do is rest, don’t overwork yourself, and take care of your bundle of joy.
