Parenting after a Loss

NPALR: Can I freak out here for a minute

First, my next dr appt is a week from today and my pgal brain is in overdrive. I'm praying to see a healthy LO at my ultrasound. 

Then, we currently live in a 2 bedroom condo. We bought it right before we got married and its been great. However, we have really outgrown it. The market for our place has been slow so we thought it would take awhile to sell. Well, it sold in a month. Great, right? Except for the fact that we haven't been able to find a house to move into. Cue freak out. My MIL has graciously said we can move in with her until we find somewhere which I really appreciate it. She has a huge home and the kids can each have their own room and a playroom; plus tons of land to run on. 

 It makes sense, we can continue to search for our ideal home and save some money to add to the house fund. But I'm still freaking. I'm worried about how DD will react, the longer commute, and just how long it's going to take to find somewhere. We're looking for a home that will always fit us; we don't want to rush just to buy something.  

 Thanks for letting me get this out there.

  • That can be so stressful! It sounds like it will work out for the short term, though. GL!

  • That's great that your MIL has offered her home and you have a place where you and the kids can be comfortable. It may be a bit of an adjustment at first but I bet your LOs will enjoy being with their grandma :)

  • That sounds extremely stressful, I can see why you are freaking out!  However, it is nice that you have a short term solution with your MIL and you have the right idea to take some time to find the right house.  That way, you won't have to move again for a good long while!  Good luck!!

  • Dude, I HEAR YOU! We put ours on the market assuming we had time and it sold in 5 DAYS Indifferent. We close Aug 30th and currently have no idea where we're going. It's a great problem to have in a market like today's but it's still scary.

    Hang in there, and try to stay calm (ha!) for LO's sake. Lots of good house vibes coming your way!

  • You definitely have a lot going on! Good house and u/s vibes headed your way!

  • That sounds really stressful, but it is awesome you are able to take a step back and not emotionally purchase a home.  You are saving yourself big bucks and a big headache in the long run by being so strategic!

    huge (hugs) to you too! I hope that you find a home quickly! I'm so thankful we have somewhere to go and can take our time to find the best house for us but its still stressing me out.
