Big News: I’m Pregnant!

i'm pregnant

My husband and I decided that it was time for us to expand our family. Therefore, Jerome and I are happy to announce that I’m expecting a baby boy. I can’t wait for the end of February to hold him in my arms.

As you can imagine, I already know which stroller I want, which furniture and bedding will decor the nursery. Where I need more help is with clothing. There are not many maternity stores near downtown Montreal. I do not wish to shop in a suburb mall because I will waste 1 or 2 hours driving in a car for the return trip.

I was thrilled to hear that Mexx launched a maternity collection but frankly, I was very disappointed. Boring style, no patterns. They do not seem to recognize that being pregnant is a happy time and that we also wish to wear colors and patterns.

What are the Best Maternity Stores in New York?

I will be in New York next weekend. I already know about Macy’s, Gap Maternity (which is not available in Canada) and Motherhood (which are only in the suburbs). Therefore, I am asking you for suggestions. Where should I look for fun, reasonably priced maternity clothes? I’m looking for a warm knee-length fall coat, a few dresses, tops and pants.

    Félicitations pour cette belle nouvelle!!

    Pour les vêtements maternité, j’ai découvert les vêtements de Isabella Oliver ce printemps… et j’ai adoré les morceaux que j’ai commandé!(www.isabellaoliver.com)

    C’est un peu dispendieux mais ce sont les morceaux qui sont restés les plus beaux après avoir été portés et lavés plusieurs fois dans les 6 derniers mois!!

  5. Congratulations!!

  6. Congratulations to You and Jerome.
    Enjoy NYC

    http://www.milkface.com/ does mail order and is fantastic. they are located in Ottawa and are fantastic to deal with.

    Also look for a brand named Boob for nursing wear later on. They are both sylish and practical, an important factor for a new mom! I think Bloom Maternity on Sherbrooke carries it: http://www.bloommaternity.com/francais/index.php

    Congratulations! I am due in March myself (our second child). Looking forward to reading about your adventure!
