I am under so much stress at the moment. Maybe I'm exaggerating it, but I feel really unsettled.
We have to move house from where we are renting. The owners want to move back :-( We need to be out by the middle of Feb, which gives us about 4 weeks to find a new place to live. We haven't seen any nice places so far and the rental market is either places that are rubbish in bad neighbourhoods, or places that are so expensive we'll be up to the eyeballs in debt, so I'm just hoping something suitable will come up between now and then.
I don't have a nursery set up and we're going to be packing up to go right before the baby is due. I feel I need to be making my "nest" for the baby, not living in cardboard boxes. It can't be helped though, but it's still stressful. Every few days I pack a box of things I don't think I'll need for a while (books and things like that) so it's not such a big job when it gets closer. My mum and MIL will be able to help on the day too which will be great.
I think for me, it's more about having a baby due very soon, and I don't have stable accommodation.
Has anyone got any tips for me? DH says "it'll all work out". That's probably true, but it doesn't stop my instinct of wanting a safe space to have my baby in, which at the moment, I don't have.
