As many of you know (or maybe it's the first time hearing the news), Shimon and I are expecting our first child in January. After recovering from the initial shock, we're doing very well.
As I am just entering month 4, most of my clothes are no longer fitting properly and I had to do a bit of shopping yesterday.

Our first stop was H&M. Quite often H&M has great sales when the seasons change, however I think my timing was off because there was no big sale and all of the fall clothes were already out! Ack! That said, I did manage to find some things that will work very well for school. I'm not a huge fan of leggings, but I really love that they can go under my belly versus over it.

Then we wondered over toward a shopping area that has the only maternity shop that I know of in Yokohama. I had checked it out before and thought that things were awfully expensive. What I had not checked out were the bras. (Sorry if that's TMI to any gentlemen readers!!) So, I marched over and checked it out. And boy was I glad I did... they were very reasonable (about $15 a piece) and comfortable! So I scooped up three and a dress ($20!!) that I could wear to school.

I still have comfy shoes on my list of things to buy, but that will have to wait until a bit later. :-)

Glad to share with a larger audience now! It took us by surprise, but we're taking it all in stride now. :-)

I had good luck ordering from these folks when I was prego in Fairbanks with no where to shop. Prices are reasonable and there were a number of pieces I wore through both pregnancies with the boys so they are durable too. Though I'm not sure about their international shipping policys/prices...
Dave and I are very excited for you and Shimon! Will you two be finding out if it's a boy or a girl or do you want to wait and have it a surprise?!
