Babies have been born with a lot less than what you’ve already accomplished.  It sounds like you’ll be fine.  (If you can get the house you want-NOW is a great time!-I’m not at all in finances, but I am 50 and I’ve never seen the rates this low in my lifetime.)

yes and a freakout is totally normal.

Its a huge change in your life but if in your heart you want kids (and it sounds like you do) then go for it. 

There is no perfect time.

I think what you are feeling is perfectly normal….I have one child already who is 4 and Darling Husband and I were TTC since our wedding and we finally got pregnant yay!  However I am having crazy thoughts too, like ok this is what I wanted and what I still want but it def. can be overwhelming….I think you need to do whatevers best for you and your family as far as moving, I know I’m not much help but just know you are not alone and I wish you guys best of luck and lots of baby dust for Feb. 🙂

Oh this is absolutely normal.

As far as moving goes, if you have the time, money, etc to do it, it wouldn’t hurt to at least start looking & doing the preliminary research in regards to schools, good neighbourhoods, amenities, location and distance in relation to jobs etc etc. Also, once you narrow it down to specific neighbourhoods or cities then you can start comparing the market values of houses (be sure to look for past sales as well!) and really begin to formulate what, where and how much it is you are looking for.

Think about how comfortable you would be moving while pregnant or with  an infant. You may not get pregnant the first go around, in fact it could take some time, you never know, but in the same breath, a baby only takes 9 months to be ready and you will probably be hit with some SERIOUS nesting vibes, so you are going to want to think about whether you are going to want to be in the new place and nesting pre-baby or if you are okay waiting until later in your pregnancy or after the pregnancy to nest.

It can seem overwhelming, but if you take it easy and think it through I am sure you and your husband will come to a decision that will make you both very happy.

Moving can happen at any time and its a pain in the butt no matter when it happens.  My friends just made a major move (for the same reasons) with their 10 month old 2 weeks before her first christmas. 

It sounds like you guys are ready and everything you are feeling is completely normal!

There’s really no huge rush to move right this second, I mean, 3/2 is definitely large enough for a starter family. We’re in a 2/1, and feel like it will be fine for a few years. Besides, you never know how long it will take to get pregnant. It’s not exactly something you can plan out. But just get ready for another freakout halfway through your first trimester, when you’re heaving your guts out and overcome by fatigue and wondering, now WHY did I want to do this agian?! 😉
