Week 30 of My Pregnancy – Receive the great news that we’re moving to our home

Great news! Hubby has been accepted for a mortgage which means that we can now make arrangements to move. We’ve been told that the moving date is 7 October, so we have very little time to pack everything up into boxes and arrange for them to be moved. We also have to sort out a cleaner to clean the property as the flat will be subject to a valuation and we could really do with all of our deposit being returned back to us. I called up the NCT and informed them of our move and they were very helpful and found us an alternative place near to the new area straight away. I just need to find a suitable hospital now, so that I can register to give birth. I thought that it would probably be easier to move first then hubby and I can have a look around together. Mum and dad are so happy that we’re moving 5 minutes away from them now, which means they’ll get to see the baby much more often. I am quite upset that I’m moving so far away from my friends, but it’s for the best. Had a strong craving for hot chocolate and ended up drinking two pints of the stuff! I’m a bit worried about the caffeine intake now even though I know that it has less caffeine than tea and coffee. Maybe I was craving the calcium? A fun fact – The baby weighs about the same as a head of cabbage!
