On Saturday my hubby, daughter and I went house hunting here in the town we live in. We are currently living in a STUDIO (Yes studio! ) apartment and will DEFINATLY need to be in a house before the baby is born lol. We saw a house that we like and went to put an offer on it and then realized that the septic is REDICULOUSLY small and could be a potential problem We are praying that if need be, we can put a septic in (my dad is capable of doing this) but the area where the septic is will need to be easy to access and hopefully not be completly rocky....Its stressful enough just being pregnant let alone living in a studio apartment with 3 other people and hopefully buying a house LOL!

I know the stress! We bought a place the week before I found out I was pregnant and our big move is this weekend. Between the lawyers, mortgage brokers, shopping for items for the house, its been insane!

I agree with the ladies above that buying a house is stressful! We bought the house we're in now when I was very pregnant with #4. I cried a lot lol. Good luck! I hope it works out for the best

Best of luck! Remember it always seems super stressful and chaotic when your in the middle of it all and nothing seems to be going right, but things settle down and work out in the end (or at least I think they do. I'll let you know on monday )

We sold our condo and bought a new house all when my dad died and I found out I was pregnant. We are moving in less than a month. Ill be honest I dont love this house at all, we saw it the day after my dad died and I wasnt there really at all but my DH and realtor loved it. They saw a ton of potential and so my Dh put an offer in that night, I was crying in the bedroom and had to come out to sign the papers. My Dh is really handy and he fixed our condo up really well which is why we sold so quickly (3 days!) but still Im stressed about the move and just unhappy in general with the house. I know it was a good deal and we can change things but I also feel like I wasnt in the right place to make such a big decision either. Granted we had been looking for 2 weeks and put an offer on another house that fell through but there was nothing else out there in our area and price range so this might have been the best we could have gotten if we wanted to stay where we are as well as not be house poor. Still I just wish I felt differently about the whole thing and I dont.

Good luck... we definitely need a bigger place too. But we are stuck in a lease until June, so we will be moving with a newborn and I am already dreading it.

Thank you for replying ladies! We went to the town hall and after digging up some paperwork on the house that we like we discovered that the septic tank is 750 gallons! Still small BUT doable lol. So last night we went and put in a veryyy low offer in hopes that a miracle happens and they actually accept it! If they dont, we can always offer a higher price but we figure that starting low is a smart idea
