I agree and would move in January if you can pull it off. You then have a reason to take it easy and not do a lot of moving
But too, moving with a little one is tough. We moved last year with Lil'bit being just short of a year and it was tough even then, i couldnt imagine doing it with a month old little one. I also agree, hire movers. Call around, get a good price and ask others opinions who you know have recently moved. Also, make sure they do things like laying down tarps to walk on etc. I was sooo rushed (horrible closing) that by the time I got to the new house I just wanted it over. I didnt notice they didnt put down the tarps or covers on the carpet I had paid a small fortune to have cleaned as they said they would and we needed to have it cleaned all over again
I should have had a list to give them the minute they walked in the house! Basically, get to know the movers when they walk in the house! We offered lunch to them since we had a long wait inbetween moves and they appreciated it and worked a little harder etc. Also, label all the boxes etc and have them move said boxes into the appropriate rooms. It makes unpacking soo much easier.
I think moving before the baby will be a heck of a lot easier. not only that, but when you get to the new state, you can always reapply for assistance. If you go to the stated website, there should be a page for assistance that will list the income amount to number in family allowance and whether or not you will be eligible. I know here in Illinois they have a program (my girls are on it and I hopefully soon will be too) that gives insurance to pregnant women and children with little or no insurance. Granted that means finding new drs, atleast for well visits, but it also means a heck of a lot less medical bills and ours from well visits/shots etc are upwards of 2,000$ Good luck, I know its hard!
