    I've started looking for coats too, I found a cute one I like but the site doesn't indicate what temps it's good for since I'm in Atlantic Canada we get COLD (and then colder) and a lot of snow so I need a good warm coat.

    I might try the plus size store here to see if they have anything. Thanks for the idea!

    Jacki, that coat is ADORABLE!

    I have unfortunately found myself in plus sized shirts prepregnancy all because of my boobs. It's quite depressing actually since the rest of the top is so completely huge on me but shirts that fit me everywhere else are too small for my bust.

    I'm going to be heading to the Burlington Coat Factory in the near future because in previous pregnancies I've found that they have very inexpensive maternity clothes.

    Jacki, glad to hear that your DD is bcoming more independent. Yay for finding a cute coat! When does it start getting cold in FL? I might have to look for a coat too....I'm hoping I won't have to, though. It doesn't really start getting too cold here until November/December so I'm going to hold off for a while. It's kind of hard for me to shop for clothes right now because as a FTM, I have NO clue how big I'm going to get. lol

    Crystal, I bet if gets extremely cold there! I'm such a wimp. It gets just below freezing here most winter and I'm seriously freezing my butt off. lol

    Danielle, we have a Burlington Coat Factory here too. I didn't know they carried maternity stuff. I haven't been there in years. The last time I was there was maybe 5 years ago? and I found the most amazing Laundry by Shelli Segal Coat there.

    It was a bit big for me then but I bought it anyway so maybe it'll fit better this winter? I hope so! I'm going to pull it out later today and check it out! lol

    Jina, we have 2 Burlington Coat Factories and only one carries maternity stuff so yours may or may not. I say check it out though b/c I got some nice comfy pants with DS2 that cost me a whole $10

    I love that coat, it looks so sweet!!
    I'm hoping I can get away without buying a new winter coat this year.....a couple years ago I bought a nice black wool coat that's the same 'swing' style, so since it doesn't do up over the bump, I'm hoping we can make it work!!
    .....Lucky for us though we live on the wet west coast - so it gets crazy cold, but we don't get much snow. Just 4 months of rain :P

    And on a totally unrelated and TMI note......OMG I have to pee!!!!! we have our ultrasound today, and so of course I get the instructions to drink over 1 liter of water an hour before the scan, and I'm miserable! I'm seriously looking at the clock on my desk counting down the minutes til I go for the scan.....not because I'll get to see the baby, but b/c it means this misery is almost over!
    .....ok, crazy rant over!

    I was like that at my u/s too! I HATE those ones because I always have to pee sooooo bad and they always take forever to get me back there for the scan. This time, I literally almost peed myself. It was awful.

    I can't drink as much as they tell you. I peed every 10 mins right up till I left for the hospital and still almost couldn't hold it while the tech did the scan! I was so happy when she said she was switching to a transvag so I could go pee!

    OK.....back from the scan!!! (and feeling MUCH more comfortable!!!)
    So baby is.......a surprise They kept the goods hidden, the U/S tec said they aren't going to be able to include the gender in their report since they couldn't see anything.
    Other than apparently being as stubborn as me (yikes - I'm gonna be in trouble!), baby looks great We got to see the heart pumping blood, see the kidneys functioning, everything looks as it should. I'm still measuring behind (18+4), so who knows.....they might still move my date back. I wish I had a crystal ball to tell me when this baby is going to come, because I don't want to go off work too soon and then have a month of hanging around the house just waiting for baby to show!

    The U/S tec we had today wasn't the best.....first of all she was brutally painful and I swear I'll have bruises from the scan, and also the pics she gave us weren't very good.....all she printed for us was straight on face shots, which to me look like something out of a halloween or alien movie! The pics just show the outline of the skull and eye sockets. I know I'm going to love this little alien in me, but right now it's just kinda creepy!

    I think DH and I are going to spring for a 3D scan later this month.....one near us is having a 3D gender assessment special for $79, so I think we might book that!

    Well, I know I should be working, but looking up baby stuff is so much more fun!!
