Will you be keeping your maternity clothing for a future pregnancy? Selling them? donating them? Giving them away??


Whatever you do, don't just throw them out!! There are so many ladies that can use them!! I think we all know how expensive maternity clothing is!!

Keeping mine! In future pregnancies even if it is winter, I will be able to use a lot of the basic tees and I have a couple pairs of jeans. I'm going to have a hard time going back to regular bottoms as it is!

I may use some pieces for a few weeks after baby is born. After that I will either sell them or donate them. Some of the consignment sales around here offer maternity, so I may try to go that route. We are done after this baby and don't really have any friends in my size that are trying right now.

You know.... since this is a surprise baby and I had to go out and get everything again I'm a little hesitant to get rid of my things. Same for the baby's clothes as he grows out of them...

What if??? We aren't planning on another but we weren't planning this one!

I will be getting rid of them! This is DEFINATELY our LAST, so if I know of someone that can use them I'll pass them on, if not I'll be selling them at the next consignment event that come to town.

I am getting rid of them. I don't know anyone that is in need of them. I will put them up for sale on a local mom's group, and if no one wants them then I will donate them.

I think I'll sell them on CL after that PP period. I kept all of mine from the 1st time around, and this time I bought all new anyway b/c I was pg over winter with him...so, I didn't even wear all the stuff I had last time. I don't want it to just sit for 3 more years and have to be moved when we move after residency is over in less than 2 years.

I think I will most likely sell them too. I don't know anyone pregnant right now. I can use that money to go toward new clothes for myself

Still that doesn't mean I wont be having any more babies! I don't know about that yet

Since I have lost so much weight this pregnancy I have been able to just keep using my regular stuff. I had two pairs of pants from when I was pregnant with Kenny that I might keep for a while. On the one hand I was very sad lol, I wanted pretty maternity clothes but just couldn't justify the cost when my other stuff worked.

I'm keeping everything! This is only our first baby and we want at LEAST 2 more after him (and I plan on trying for #2 once my body is back to normal after this one ).

If I'm super huge during winter the next time around, then I'll only have to buy some sweaters, but I'm pretty set for all of my bottoms and short sleeved tops

I don't know yet, I'll probably hang on to them, just in case. most of mine are trashed, they have stains, or are torn, and just not in good shape. I've had them for 6 pregnancies, and when you only have 5 shirts, they get nasty fast.

If we don't have any more babies I will likely chuck them. no one would want them.

I couldn't really afford maternity clothes this time around...all I have is one short sleeve top and two pairs of jeans. I will be keeping them, as we plan on beginning to try for a second baby in June/July.

I'm going to keep mine in a tote in the attic for my SILs or friends in case they want them in a few years (I paid a lot for them!) We are definitely done so I won't need them

I'll be donating them like I did any that weren't the right season for this pregnancy (I had some heavy winter stuff from other pregnancies). Some of the stuff I will use for a couple months until I lose a little bit of weight. DH is going to get snipped very soon so no need to hold onto it for any future pregnancies lol.
