I don't want to get rid of any of my clothes since I have no idea what size I'm going to end up after this baby (or the hypothetical next )
What do you all do?
I have like four different wardrobes right now, and I don't want to waste money having to buy new every inbetween pregnancy...

Basically, keep the universal pieces, your favorite peices or things that are comfortable for many sizes (stretchy pants, skirts with elastic waists etc) and ditch the rest. I think all my non-maternity clothes Im still either wearing (yea, I can still wear them at 26 weeks, I don't pop much out until I reach the 3rd trimester) or fit into one small space saver bag in the closet.
If you really want to save them, space saver bags are great. Thats how I have all the baby clothes storaged. They are kept dry and away from the bugs that way and they take up less space.
but on the other hand I really like the convenience of not having to run around many shops when I do loose a little bit of weight every now and then & to be able to instead "shop from home/my stash"
so I think that a possible compromise could be to keep about 5-6 outfits in each size + use these space bags from which you "vaccum" air before sealing.
you don't want to have to buy everything at a new size and it can be costly too
you might also wish to get a few current fashion items for each size as you loose weight
(although, after finishing breastfeeding my second child ... for quite a while and making do with separates I already had , I wanted to treat myself to a few dresses ... but there was NOTHING in shops that I liked at all that year !!!!)
Recently I decluttered my entire closet and dresser, keeping only what currently fits and a few select "in between" items that I really loved having this time around: a few pairs of jeans that I felt really good in. I figure that as long as I have some basic pieces I feel good in, I can pick up a few complimentary items fairly cheaply. It's important to feel good about oneself in that "in between" stage.
I do have a bag of maternity clothes saved for future pregnancies.

Keep maybe at least half? Of things that will still be ok in a couple years. Like jeans, bras, sweaters, etc. Things that are 'pricy'. Sell or consign anything that is marketable right now, becuase in 2 years, they won't be anymore. Keep a couple 'business' type items, in case you need to do interviews or other things you need to dress up for. Something you may be able to wear this pregnancy.
