I am totally dealing with this too! I live in Ontario near Toronto and we are in the "snow belt"! With my other two pregnancies, I was due in October and late November. It was cold when I had the other two but I didn't have to worry about a winter coat- I just wore my normal coats open with a big scarf. I am getting a little worried about dropping a ton of money to get ready for winter. I have to walk my DD to school every second day (DS is still home with me) and I want to buy very good, solid, gripping winter books so I don't trip and fall while pregnant. I have to walk through a park to the school and last year, I pulled the kids on a sled. They are bigger this year and I really liked using the sled but I will need to buy a bigger one this year. So, I am going to need a new winter coat and I think I am going to buy some men's construction boots or something... I kind of like that look anyways with leggings and a big coat and scarves. I am praying for a mild winter.... What province are you in? On the bright side, I have never had a spring baby and I am really looking forward to not bundling up a newborn in the winter and driving with a newborn in snowstorms. However, I did like losing the baby weight over the winter and by the summer, I always felt more like myself! So far, we have broken records with the warmest Thanksgiving weekend in my region so it's been gorgeous out! Oh and we do have a Motherhood here... 5 minutes from my house and right beside where I used to work so I used to drop a lot of money every break I had at work. I am a SAHM now so at least I don't need work clothes. I gave away all of my mat clothes so I do need to buy some new things.

I have NO idea what I'm going to wear as a winter coat!!!
Has anyone else tackled this? Winter is coming fast, and I need to know where to order/buy them.
