Setting Up Your New Place

When we found out we were moving, our first instinct was to figure out what we were going to do with all of our stuff. We weren't sure how to cope with the amount of belongings that we had, so we started looking around for a storage facility in the new city that could help. After a brief search, we were able to find a facility that really worked well for what we needed. They were fantastic to work with, and we loved being able to have a spot where we could stash things. I wanted to create a new website dedicated to setting up a new home, so you know what you are up against.

Five Tips for Moving While Pregnant


Pregnancy is a major life event, but being pregnant and moving is something entirely different. Yet, its an event you can make it through. Keep your family's move as stress-free as possible with some helpful tips.

1. Schedule a Full-Service Move

When you're pregnant, it's not the time to move on your own. You need to hire residential movers, such as Tru -Pak Moving Systems, that can provide you with a full-service move. A full-service move includes everything from packing your belongings to delivering them into your new home. For the safety of the baby, this option is the best since you don't have to worry about doing any heavy lifting.

2. Declutter Your Home

Get rid of as much junk before the move as you can. Decluttering is a great way to get ahead of the game before the baby arrives since you will have already removed many of the items you no longer need or use. As a bonus, decluttering before a full-service move is a great way to save money since you won't have as many household goods to move. 

3. Research New Doctors

Look for a doctor before you move. Healthcare during pregnancy is critical to the health of your body and your baby. You can give yourself a peace of mind that you can get the care you need once you arrive at your new home since you will already have a doctor. Let your current doctor know how long you'll be in town in case you need to schedule an appointment before you move.

4. Pace the Move

Don't try to cram too much work into a small amount of time. If there is one consistent symptom many pregnant women experience, it's fatigue. If you try to stuff a month's worth of moving prep into a week, you'll be in trouble. Once the move is confirmed, make a list of everything you need to do and slowly work through the list so that you have plenty of time to rest.

5. Pack a Bag

Pregnancy also comes along with a lot of surprises. While you have a due date, there is little guarantee your child will arrive on that date. If your move is planned toward the second half of your third trimester, pack your hospital bag and keep it with you. Don't let the movers pack it. In the event you go into labor, you'll have everything ready.
