    How bad are your upstairs neighbors? 

    Because I know for me, if it was just general stuff i’d probably stick it out. But if it would affect my baby at some point, (like blaring loud rock/metal music at all hours of the day/night or cigarette smoke coming in through vents or windows,) I would have to say go. 

    I’d also think about trying to move while you are pregnant. Moving boxes, furniture and painting are difficult when you AREN’T pregnant, so I can only imagine doing those things while you’re a few months along.

    Good luck though!

    When does their lease end?  j/k

    If you already know you want to move and the only thing holding you back is money, I would say move now.  Yes, it’s a lot of money to spend but it’s easier to move while pregnant than right before giving birth and/or with an infant.  Plus, the issue with the neighbors may get worse and you probably don’t want to expose your infant to it.  You can always budget for baby stuff and honestly babies don’t realize that they don’t have tons of stuff or brand new toys, they just need the two of you to be comfortable and happy.

    I would probably move early. Could you talk to property management about an arrangement where you leave the lease early with a smaller penalty, considering the numerous complaints you have filed with the upstairs apartment? I think it would be a lot easier to move while pregnant than with a newborn. Plus, if you move soon enough, you could avoid having to move the baby’s stuff– just don’t buy it or have it delivered until after the move. $1000 lost really sucks, but it’s a small amount in a the grand scheme of things, especially if you are really unhappy.
