Moving Tips: Be careful moving while pregnant

Moving while pregnant is difficult, but there are ways to make it easier.

Moving while pregnant is difficult, but there are ways to make it easier.

The packing and moving process can be difficult for anyone, but if you are pregnant, it can be even more stressful. However, with some help and planning, you can make the situation more manageable.

One of the best ways to make everything easier is to extend the process. By starting to pack well in advance, you may be able to get everything done more comfortably. Keep in mind, organization will help, so packing things first that you won't need, or only occasionally use, will help make the situation better.

Another significant help would be to get people to participate in the move. Whether it is family, friends or acquaintances, anyone to help transport the items to and from the moving company's equipment will take added stress off of your body.

Keep health in mind when moving
Make sure that you only lift what you can when moving items. Don't overexert yourself, as you could get seriously hurt. It may help to pack lightly, as you won't have to deal with heavier boxes later on. This can't always be done, but you may be able to accomplish this to some extent. Also, speak with your doctor about what you can and cannot move, as they may have more input on your limits.

Take breaks when you are moving items. Remember that it isn't a sprint, and if you do need things done quickly, you should have others take care of that for you. Getting tired when moving happens to everyone, so you shouldn't feel that you're not pulling your own weight. One idea that may make the process easier for everyone is if you direct the move when you feel tired, instead of just bowing out. However, it should be totally up to how your strength is.

If you don't feel well, tell someone that is with you. Your health is a serious matter, and you should be mindful of that the whole time. If anything doesn't feel right, stop all moving activities. Take a break if it isn't something serious, but if it worries you, inform someone to help take care of the situation. Be mindful that you have people there to help and support you, as they are already making sure you move into your new home safely and easily.
