Excited and worried

My husband has been applying for jobs for a year now. Today, he was offered one in Florida. I'm so excited (especially to be moving to a warmer climate) but they want him to start the beginning of January sometime.

So now I have to fix up and pack up the house, make it presentable to put on the market, hope it sells quickly, find a place in FL that will take a family of 7 with 2 dogs and 2 cats (rental until we can find a new place to buy).

And I have to do all of this while in the most uncomfortable stage of pregnancy.

And I'll have to find a new doctor and hospital in my last 2 months!

I was really hoping to wait until after the baby was born to move.

I'm a nervous wreck right now.

We're in Nashville, TN so it's too far a trip for him to move down there and come back for the birth. :-(

The Vero Beach and Port St. Lucia area is where we are looking. The job is in Vero Beach but home prices are better a little south.

Vero Beach is nice,and yeah the prices in Port St.Luce are cheap, we're in South Florida, Ft.Lauderdale I'm glad we're leaving it's too crowded if I had my pick I would to Orlando or GA but Nebraska it is for now. The transition will be overwhelming but it's gonna be ok.

Everything will be ok momma! Try not to stress to much over it or over do the packing and such. Just pray things to work out.

 I live in SW Florida. 2/3 hrs from Ft. Lauderdale. You may be able to find a birth center to deliver at. I may have a list with places all around that I got from the VA when I was looking. I will look that way you can start to call around.
