We weren’t planning to move but something unexpected happened. Back in September, I saw a listing that I thought Nick would find intriguing working in real estate. We went to the open house and he fell in love. Pushing my third trimester, I was overwhelmed at the thought of moving before the baby was born but agreed it was a good investment and we should pursue the opportunity. Three months later, we moved out of the unit he owned and bought our first home together.
This is why I wanted LittleFit to stay put and not come early! I was so nervous about going into labor as movers would arrive. I hadn’t set up a nursery because I never unpacked my gifts from the baby shower and knew we would be moving. I dreaded people asking me how it was coming along.
My mom helped pack us up last weekend and we finished the rest on Sunday and Monday. As always, I tried to clean out the fridge before leaving which is why we ate out so much last week.
For our last dinner, I had a Good Food Made Simple Meatball Marinara Wrap which was really, really good for being something I microwaved for 2 minutes. No, I didn’t professionally photograph it, but trust me when I say it tasted better than it looks.
We moved out on Tuesday morning, stored our stuff in the moving truck overnight, and then moved into the new place yesterday due to closings. The movers were supposed to come at 10am Wednesday morning, then called to say 2:30pm, then arrived at 4:30pm! So at 8pm last night, all of our stuff was finally in our new home all boxed up.
The new place is still in the South End in Boston but closer to Back Bay Station than Mass Ave Station. Literally a ten minute walk from our old spot but it feels so much closer to many of my favorite studios and cafes – except Burn Fitness Studio!
How much did I help with the move? That probably depends on who you ask 🙂 I think I was helpful??? I tried to take it easy but felt really good. It was hard not to try to do stuff like move boxes around. I didn’t lift anything too heavy and felt pretty energized all day. They say you get a surge of energy in the final stretch of pregnancy when it comes to organizing and preparing for baby’s arrival. I think this was it.
Did you move while pregnant? Apparently, lots of people do it despite the stress of it all.
