FH and I are getting married in September and have decided to start TTC immediately after we’re married. We currently live in a small one-bedroom apartment in a big city that would be unsuitable for a baby. Everything is old and in not-so-good condition and it is a 3rd floor walk up with narrow stairs. FH and I are on the same page about moving to a different, preferably 2-bedroom apartment with less or at least safer stairs. Unfortunately we are not on the same page about the timing.
I say we should move this summer. We can’t end our lease from the months of September-March, so if we did get pregnant right away, we’d be moving when I am quite pregnant and with all the lifting and work involved in a move, I question whether or not that is the best idea. In addition, if we wait our apartment is likely to be inundated with boxed wedding gifts that we have no space for. FH says we souldn’t even start to look until it is both March and I am pregnant – later if it takes longer to TTC. He doesn’t see the point of spending a few hundred extra dollars a month before baby gets here.
Advice one way or the other would be much appreciated.
