(No, I didn't have to go that route, but know plenty of people who have.)

Item of the day I wouldn't want to be this pregnant and live without: these soft, comfy, faux-suede slacks (sans stripes, and avec more buttoned buttons) by the perplexingly-named Japanese Weekend, via the superbly-named One Hot Mama.
