A baby in the tummy often leads a woman to "nest" in her home. When I was pregnant the first time around, I painted rooms, cleaned out closets and gave away bags of clothes. This time around, I haven't so much as bought newborn diapers or purchased a layette! That's all about to change.
Not anticipating a move, my husband and I stumbled upon a piece of property that screamed "Home Sweet Home." Upon entering the house, I chased my wee one from room to room. Instantly comfortable, she seemed to be telling me, "Here's my room and here's your room." All in love with the house, we have moved forward with contracts and inspections. Now my task of preparing for baby seems quite simple as I start to mentally gear up for a birth and a move. One major perk — I won't have to lift any heavy boxes!
Did you move while you were pregnant?
