I know it's a little early to think about this one, but I'm worrying a little about what to wear when the weather gets cold. I have a long commute by transit and....well...it gets VERY cold here starting at the end of October/early November. Right now I have an arctic level winter parka and it barely keeps me warm as I have a problem with low body temperatures. To give you an idea, I used to live in the caribbean for a bit and even though it was nice and hot, it wasn't unusual for me to wear long pants and a hoodie. Right now I'm wearing sweat pants and a hoodie, thick socks, and drinking tea and it's summer (and no, we don't have A/C)!
I know they make maternity coats, but they seem thin and not warm and expensive for something to use only for a few months. Second hand is non-existant here for maternity wear so finding one used I don't think will be possible. My current coat is form fitting so I know it won't fit.
I was thinking of getting this. I don't think it will work as a coat though as it's just fleece and I don't think it's lined or anything. It might get me through October/November though. A friend of mine has one and it worked for her in Halifax, but they tend to have warmer winters where she is...
I was just on their store and they say the Grey/Black ones are made of a thicker fleece that is warmer so maybe it's an option.
OMG I just googled and found this but it's $480:
