Sorry for all the stress – but it sounds like a great opportunity for your husband and a chance to be closer to family!

As for the travel if it all DOES happen – just go into it with a ‘we’re not in a hurry attitude’. If it takes you 3 days to drive 22 hours – it may take 3 days. Wear compression socks…. drink lots of water…. and stop every 90 minutes or so to pee and walk around. If you feel yourself swelling or becoming really uncomfortable – take a longer stop.

For me I would be MUCH more stressed about MOVING all the STUFF. But again – I’d outsource what you can to keep your stress and activity level to a minimum and just do what you have to do.

I’d possibly work on a birthplan now (what you desires are) so you have that done and ready to review with any possible providers if you do move. That way you’ll be able to find someone who is inline with your beliefs around child birth. I’m sure you can find some folks in the hive with connections to area that can give you referrals.

Sorry you are going through this! Are you sure he can’t hang in there at his current job and take advantage of any family leave or built up vacation time?  You often have to work somewhere for a while before you get those benefs so just a thought to use them first while he is on the hunt.

Any update on whether he has an offer from anyone yet or is he just starting to apply?  

I completely understand your stress and think you can talk to your husband about trying to negotiate a later start date or if this is absolutely necessary right now. Maybe he is just freaking out and this is something you can plan for in the near future after the baby is born.

Best of luck!!
