Baby, it’s cold outside!

14 weeks, 1 day pregnant
I have a maternity winter coat!
Not a second too late, either. I could only do up one of the three buttons on my black wool coat, which meant the lower half gaped open in a super-attractive way.
I was starting to panic, because I couldn’t find any maternity coats in any of the stores around here. Luckily, the ever-resourceful Little Sis went on Kijiji and found me this awesome black Old Navy maternity coat — and it fits! It fits!
The woman who sold her the coat said she had tons of other baby stuff that would be going up for sale — a bassinet, a bouncy chair, etc.
Darling Husband and I have not bought any baby stuff, and weren’t even going to think about it yet, but now my mind is racing. Should we buy stuff? When is a good time to start? Are we already behind?
* Deep breath *
I think our tentative plan is …
  • Find out the sex of the baby (February 2)
  • Begin planning nursery (February 3)
  • Register for baby stuff (by February 28)
  • Start picking up nice, used baby clothes (March 1)
  • Start working on nursery (March 1)
  • Have the baby shower (April-ish)
  • Pick up any items we still need (April, May)
  • Finish nursery (May 1)
Whew, that’s quite a list. In the meantime, I’m just happy to have a winter coat that BUTTONS UP! Thanks, Little Sis!

  1. Hi,

    You have a nice blog. A 40-week pregnancy is really just a blip in our whole life time, but the problem with clothing during that time is very painful. Keeping this in mind, two best friends and mother of two children each started http://www.bellybundles.com. We have high quality maternity clothes there and we would like to hear your feedback on our products.

    Thanks,
    Carina – Maternity clothing
