16 Halloween Costume Ideas for Pregnant Women

16 Halloween Costume Ideas for Pregnant Women

Off the bat, being pregnant on Halloween might sound like a costume hindrance. That ghost costume automatically becomes a pregnant ghost and that witch, well, she's expecting a baby witch, too. But really, a baby bump can be an amazing costume opportunity if you build your costume around it. Don't try to hide your bump — flaunt it, and make it a pivotal part of your disguise. With a little creativity, a bump can transform into a basketball, a pot of honey, and even a wrecking ball for Miley Cyrus to ride on.

Here, 18 costume ideas for moms-to-be.

1. Construction worker
Extra points for a cheeky "Baby Depot" sign.

2. Gumball machine
And make it a little suggestive with dad-to-be as a quarter.

3. Winnie the Pooh
You already have the honey belly!

4. Udder-ly cute cow
Though this might hit a little too close to home once baby comes along.

5. Thing 1 and Thing 2
Your baby will appreciate this costume one day.

6. Basketball player
But just don't try to pass or dribble.

Turn your bump into a beautiful bird's egg—and sit on it all night long.

8. Beer belly
Just let that bump hang out — and draw on a beard and happy trail.
