    Im living in a great huge fleece when i go out i desperatly need a new coat and the one ive seen is 55pound and its lovely but dont see the point in buying it as i dont plan to be this size this time next year and i like my coats to last a few years

    I know, I dont really want to spend what little money Ive got just for a few months wear. Ive already brought one coat so that I could grow into it...Ive grown into it and out of it already in 2 months!! :?

    The fleece idea is a good one Tatty, I think Il ask OH nicely if I could steal some of his clothes and get him to bring me some over :)

    Was your coat from Next a mat one Charlie?

    I got a cota for my bday from New Look and it was only £50 - it should fit when I get bigger but I don't have a bump really just now.

    My coat still fits - JUST, but I intend to go fleecey!

    I've got a new Hooch fleece coat that has drawstrings as part of the design so I think it'll stretch with me and I have proper fleeces in big sizes anyway.

    I like wearing a blokes fleece over summit sexy - it feels so cool to take it off and be all girly underneath but then get to put it back when girls in girly crappy coats are all shivering.

    The coat I bought last winter won't fasten any more because i'm such a big heffer :(

    I really don't want to fork out for a new winter coat that is bigger and will fasten around my tum just for a few months.
    I've been wearing my coat either undone or big thick jumpers and my padded body warmer.

    i brought a "swing coat" from a catalouge i brought it in a size 14 i normaly take a 12 in coats as i have broad sholders. it wasnt cheap though it was £50 but it looks fab on because it doesnt button up all the way down loads of room for baby :)
    if you watch hollyoaks its the same as what steph has been wearing but different colours and i had mine first :twisted: :twisted:

    I got mine from Red Herring - its a proper maternity one but next year when i am hoping i will have lost so of the baby weight i plan to give it to my friend who could be pregnant by then. We have agreed to share all maternity clothes and this is a great way to save money x

    I think this is the one i got although i cant tell unless i have a front view!

    My coat no longer fits, in fact the buttons started popping off it a week or so back. I went to Mountain Warehouse and bought a ski jacket in a size 12 (two sizes too big so it looks a bit daft round the shoulders) for £35 and I reckon it'll do me till the weather gets a bit warmer. I also got a maternity fleece (not a coat) off Ebay for £20 so I wear that indoors now all my jumpers and cardies won't do up.

    I had a big panic about coats this time last week but I have just decided to go for the BIFF COAT approach and look fat rather than pregnant. At least I'm warm. Actually I look really daft with my turquoise ski jacket, turquoise Hello Kitty earmuffs, scarf and magic gloves but hey who cares?!

    I can't gaurantee this is the one i got as i am sure mine was £55 not £35 - although my brain isn't really working at the moment so i could be wrong!

    The one i have is pretty thick - i would certainly go out with just a jumper underneith it. Got a nice hat, scarf and glove set from Debenhams as well so look better than i normally do!

    I actually went out on saturday with just a dressy top on and felt warm enough.

    As for colours i only saw it in black which is what i was after so didn't look for any others.

    My OH bought me a gorgeous suade coat for my bday. The day after that we found out i was preggers, an it no longer fits :(

    I've got a puffy brown coat from asda. REALLY WARM and 2 sizes too big at the mo. I look rather funny wearing it as it's so big but i don't care, it cost £18 and will last for the pregnancy, then i can wear my nice coat again.

    I love fleeces though, especially borrowed ones, ones that smell like my OH. Yum.

    I bought a snow jacket just before I got pg but luckily I bought it big so I had room to fit a chunky jumper underneath, I've been fine wearing t-shirts under it so far so it still fits just!
    I'm sure my body temperature must be a lot higher than normal cos the roads are all frozen with ice outside and I'm not half as cold as I usually am this time of year.
