Tips and Tricks for a Stress-Free Move While Pregnant
If you are pregnant, moving can be an extremely tough challenge for you to cope with. Pregnancy is a beautiful period, yet it may be accompanied with plenty of hurdles, such as nausea or extreme fatigue. Top it off with all the stress of coordinating a move, and here you go – a perfect recipe for a disaster. Fortunately, we are here to help you with both tips and services.
We know how to make moving during pregnancy a relaxed and stress-free experience. All you need is right people next to you (salute husband, movers, and friends) and a proper plan. So make yourself comfortable – take on board these tips for moving during pregnancy.
A plan is what you need for your successful move (and not only for moving). And during the pregnancy, you have to plan way before your moving day in order to avoid all possible stress and worries. Procrastination is not an assistant here. The longer you organize, the calmer the process goes.
Making a list of what you should do before moving is the key to your success. Will you need to ask for help from your friends and relatives? Will you use any moving services? Which items can you start packing already today?
If you have an organized, realistic list of tasks, deadlines, and other information, you will have an idea of your moving progression. You will quit stressing and be prepared for any situation. Your moving process will be under control.
Take thought for yourself
As troublesome as the move can be, it is crucial to reduce or, better, exclude any anxiety. A pregnant woman should take care not only of the growing baby, but also of herself. Here are some recommendations to control stress during the moving process:
- Being active! Everyday walks, pilates for pregnant women or any other physical exercises you like should be included in your day’s routine. It will help to decrease the level of cortisol, and anxieties won’t make their way into your mind.
- Reading (magazines, books)
- Going out for dinner with best friends is a great idea to get over negative experiences.
- Treating yourself is also good. Choose anything that makes you happy: a relaxing massage or babymoon vacation. You deserve a treat here and there.
- Sleeping properly. Do your best to ensure yourself with a sound 8-hour sleep every night.
- Breathing deeply is a great way to lower the stress level and to keep you mindful and relaxed during the pregnancy.
Pay attention to chemicals
You will have to do plenty of cleaning during the moving process, so pay attention to all cleaning supplies because some of them may include harmful chemicals. Do not mix ammonia with bleach. Use gloves while washing the dishes, walls, and the rest of your house. We recommend you to consider cleaning supplies that are eco-friendly and consist of natural ingredients only (without formaldehyde, parabens, and other chemicals).
Find a good doctor beforehand
If you move to another city, your search for a good doctor should come to an end prior to the moving day. As you know, a first-time patient should make a doctor’s appointment, and it may take several weeks or months before you see your new doctor. So take care of that, too. You may ask your current doctor, if they know anyone or can recommend someone in that city. Or just do the research on your own, by reading online reviews or joining local mum’s forums.
When you find a doctor you want to see, you should contact them and make an appointment. Make sure that they receive your information to provide the best medical care.
Avoid lifting heavy items. You, your family, and even your neighbors know that. So take care of your baby and yourself. Don’t be a superhero – the time is just not right. Accept any help from your family, friends, and even neighbors.
Of course, you can pack some small things or clothes on your own. However, carrying heavy boxes around the home or out in the street is not your problem anymore. And don’t forget that moving furniture is quite the same as lifting heavy objects. You may hurt yourself or even your baby. Avoid similar activities for the rest of the moving process.
