I recently had my second miscarriage/d&c within 8months of each other (I was the one under anonymous asking whether I should call my doctor due to heavy bleeding, painful cramping, etc. last week.) DH and I have agreed to hold off for a while (a year or so) before trying again. I'm torn as to whether or not I should sell the baby stuff I do have. DH doesn't want to look at it and I'm of the mindset, if and when we do fall pregnant again will it end the same way....I just need some advice on this and it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you ladies!

Well if you want the honest truth, I kept a lot of my baby stuff, in the hopes that someday I'd be a grandparent. Well, accumulating all that stuff soon became obviously visible and there was so much that was taking up space. So I decided to sell it all in a yard sale. Within a year, our son announced that he'd gotten his girlfriend pregnant LOL. (I wasn't happy about him doing that of course, but wouldn't you know, I just sold all the stuff). That child is now fifteen years old, and we have six grandchildren now.. So if you really want a baby, sell all the stuff, get your mind off it for a while, and sooner or later you'll be pregnant because you haven't worried about it. It really works. I had a problem getting pregnant myself, but once we got through the tests etc, and nothing was wrong we had THREE healthy babies, two boys and a girl, and the funny part about it, was that they were all spaced, like they were planned that way, and of course they weren't planned, as we'd wanted it to be. We love the children of course, and they're all grown now with kids of their own. Being a grandma is far more rewarding than being parents too. LOL, if I'd have known back when I was younger, that being a grandma was better LOL, I'd have become a grandma first. (Of course I'm just kidding ), but it's really awesome.

Pack it up until you are ready to try again.

Just a quick question.

Do you have any children from a previous pregnancy?

I'm a belly dancing and sword fighting mama of 2. I'm married to my high school sweet heart. I plan on enlisting to the army very soon, and having more kids :)

I say sell if it makes you sad. Then just get all new stuff when the time comes. Best of luck. :)
