Both my sister and sister-in-law are pregnant and due within the next few months. Neither can zip her winter coat up over her growing belly. Neither wants to fork out dollars for a super-sized jacket that only fits for a few months.
With five weeks left to go, my sister’s belly is big. On days when it’s -20 and colder, she pulls on her husband’s puffy parka — pretty funny as her husband is well over six feet. But on warmer winter days, Nicole pulls on a super stylish knitted shawl, scarf and toque combo from Pieces, a Danish company with a few outposts in eastern Canada. Her husband picked it up the set for her on a recent trip to the Netherlands. It’s perfect for keeping the cold away from her belly.

So you can get a sense of the baby bump that she’s covering, here she is shawl-less. Looks lovely, don’t you think?
This is my favourite shot. It looks like she’s saying, “Oh my! I think I’m going to have a baby!”
