Last week I had two seizures in a row I'm 23 weeks pregnant. I'm extremely concerned because I'm home alone from 5am-3pm 6days a week. (I have epilepsy I should add... and have small seizures nearly daily!)
We can either buy a house near my parents and my mum (she doesn't work) just a carer for my brother with DS, potters around doing things with him/for him activities etc can help me as much as I would like etc (she has mentioned this to my grandma how concerned she is to my Grandma) in case I drop my baby etc which we are too. I catch public transport with no fuss etc but it would be nice to be much closer to my mum etc for support instead of 45-1hr away. And I guess most people are more comfortable with there own parents We have are own issues, argue etc.. She is messy etc.. Correction a hoarder and needs to sort some problems out but I really do want my own mum LOL.
Or continue living with my MIL who is insanely driving me nuts because SIL lives here too and always gets her way. For example she gave our unborn bubba a diamond ring then SIL goes "oh i like that" so she gave it to her instead! And said "she can wear it until it fits the baby". IMO that is just so wrong. DP and SIL don't get on, it stresses me out because I always end up in the middle by saying "dont speak to her like that" or they try and make him sound bad when I know she was in the wrong but I don't have the guts to say anything because I live here and don't want to step on anyones toes... WRONG i know.
The thing is the houses we are looking at here are $250k instead of $370-$400k. SO much more affordable. I'm trying to convince dp that it is an investment kind of? even in a failing property market or am I being wrong . Please tell me i'm being wrong/right. Just any advice would be great.
