I just finished moving today, and I'm 38 weeks. Its been horrible! Do it as early as you can in your pregnancy, and get as much help as you possibly can. Rest often! Drink tons of fluids, and don't strain yourself. Also, remember that unpacking can wait. Its so much more important that you take care of yourself. Its really temping to want to get everything done right away, but I can't stress it enough, pace yourself. Only do what you are comfortable doing, and don't lift anything heavy.
At 11 weeks preggo we moved 4 miles down the road from our pervious house. Do the moving early.
I could still lift things just not heavier than 20-30 pounds. I helped DH put a door back on it hinges after he and his brother put in the washer/dryer. Later on your belly will get in the way, even with simple things. I wouldn't have been able to help with the door at 30 weeks along.

We moved into a bigger apartment in the same complex when I was 7 months pregnant. While it wasn't easy it would have been much harder after the baby. I recommend getting as many people as possible to help move the boxes and furniture for you if you don't hire a company.
