Yes. I do know how expensive they are. I got three rubbermaids dedicated to that cause!

Check out ebay. You are a small-extra small girl. The stuff on there goes CHEAP in those sizes. Some of it is new (like Gap stuff). Just a thought. And there is always Old Navy...cute and cheaper.

Moomoo's ARE bad. They are.

Don't worrie when I get back to alberta I'll be sending you a nice pair of jeans and 2 sweaters that will fit you now and after!! if I had more that would fit you I would send them all. I just never got that much! and your having a summer baby so you will need summer clothes. all mine are winter clothes. dont sweat it all I had was 3 pair of pants and 5 sweaters and 2 t-shirts. thats what i lived on for 6 months!!

I don't know if the stores are still having their end of summer sales, but I picked up tonnes of cheap t-shirts. Luckily the fashion right now is long shirts with high waist cuts, which are perfect for pregnant belly's. Also, Thyme Maternity and Old Navy in the Metrotown mall are reasonably priced as well as Belly and Beyond on Main and 25th. I have bought myself 2 pairs of maternity pants which seems to be enough. Also, being my first pregnancy, I didn't really start showing til I was 5 months or so, so you shouldn't really have to worry about it for a while.

Reesh is right. You won't need much for awhile. And since styles are long you'll set!! Just get a couple staples (jeans) and you'll be just fine. AND with fewer clothes it makes it so much EASIER to get dressed!!! (of course this is coming from the girl who spent a small fortune in maternity clothing).

WHAT? You guys are expecting?? CONGRATS. I can't believe that I hadn't heard about this yet, besides the fact that I'm on the other side of the world. We're teaching English in Japan this year. Anyways, praying that you will enjoy a healthy pregnancy, and joy as you watch your babe grow. Till next time,
