In roughly 6 months Dh, dd & I will be leaving Florida for Virginia and we have the option of either doing a full military move, which would include the military packing us up and then we hop a plane & fly to Virginia or we can do a partial move, we rent a U-Haul & take some of our stuff (beds, kitchen wares, tvs, etc) with us and drive to Virginia while the military packs up the rest for us. About the time we move I will be 6 months or less pregnant w/ our 2nd LO and I'm trying to figure out which move will be easier on us.
We've done an over-seas move already & it was a mess, our furniture came over bashed & broken and for nearly 2 months we slept on the floor & ate pb&j sandwhiches bc we didn't have a pot to cook in. We moved to a VERY small training base that didn't have a large selection at their lending locker, so NO loaner furniture.
The trip would only take a few hours if we flew, but we wouldn't have any furniture or stuff for several weeks. If we drive it would take a few days but we'd have whatever we could fit into our U-Haul, like our mattress & dd's bed.
Anyone have any suggestions or thoughts? Which would be easier while pregnant & trying to wrangle an active 3 yr old (who does very well on long car trips)?
