Halloween Costume Ideas for Pregnant Women

Updated on November 3, 2014

Pregnant Ladies Like Halloween Too!

My sister-in-law is pregnant this Halloween season and in honor of her, I am doing an article about Halloween costumes for pregnant women. After all, why should they be left out of all the fun!

I've done some research on this subject and women are extremely creative when it comes to using their baby bumps as part of their costume! They have done everything from painting their pregnant bellies just like other round objects such as faces and fruit , to using their condition as a big gag.

This lens has ideas with costumes you can buy and a lot that are home-made, but all of them are FUNNY and celebrate pregnancy. Have fun!

Costumes you Can Make at Home

Here's a list of costume ideas you can simply have painted on your belly.

1. Jack O' lantern

2. Ball: beach ball, soccer ball, basketball, baseball

3. Face: You could draw a face on your tummy and dress the rest of yourself up as the body for the face.

4. Globe

5. Easter Egg

6. Porthole: with a picture of a baby's face in it (Womb with a view)

7. Picture of the baby and umbilical cord

Ways to Incorporate your Bump as Part of your Costume

Here are some suggestions on how to have a regular costume, but use your bump as part of it. You could use these if you are in a colder climate on Halloween and want your belly to be covered up. These are really great ideas! I wish I would've thought of them when I was pregnant with my second child!

1. 8 ball: Wear a black sweat suit and paint a white circle on the front of your belly with an "8" on it.

2. Egg yolk: Wear a white sweat suit and paint a yellow circle over your belly.

3. Anyone with a beer gut: Think truck driver, trailer trash guy, Homer Simpson?

4. Pregnant prom queen: Wear a nice dress with a tiara and a sash that says "Prom Queen" and carry a bouquet. This costume takes a certain sense of humor though, it might be considered edgy.

5. An Eyeball: White shirt with a painted eyeball on the front, red lines all over for the blood vessels.

6. Mike from "Monsters Inc."

7. Pregnant Skeleton: Wear a black sweat suit and paint bones on your arms and rib cage and a tiny skeleton where your belly is.

Stuff you can Stick ON your Pregnant Belly

You don't have to just paint your belly to make it look cool. Some mommies have been creative enough to glue or tape things to their bellies to help with their Halloween Costume!

Imagine walking around as the solar system or having an alien popping out of your belly! What a way to freak people out!

      I was going to paint my belly as a basketball and hang a net underneath, but I never got around to it.

      These are all so cool! The pregnant nun is always a classic - one of my friends also used her bump by dressing as a devil.

      It's been about six years since the last time I was pregnant. One of my children was born in October, however, he was born before Halloween so I didn't get a chance to try these. Darn it!
