15 Creative Ideas for Pregnant Halloween Costumes
Pot of Gold
Don your best rainbow wig or scarf and have it lead down to your "pot of gold", a.k.a your baby bump! You can either paint your belly or paint the outside of your shirt to make your bump look like a black pot of gold. And for the gold, use fake coins, gold paint, glitter, or any other object that sparkles!
This is a classic pregnant Halloween costume that is easy to do! Simply wear an orange shirt and paint a jack-o-lantern face on your belly. You can also carve out a real pumpkin and put it over your head, making sure to cut eyeholes so you can see. Then, put your hands through the bottom of the pumpkin so it looks like you're the stem!
Another easy one, all you need is some toilet paper! Wrap yourself (and your baby bump) in toilet paper, and add some black eye makeup to look like a mummy. You can also add a Halloween scarf or bandana around your head for extra effect.
For a more spooky look, paint your face white and your eyes black, then paint a skeleton on your shirt. Paint a baby skeleton over your belly to show off your "baby skeleton". You can also add some black leggings or pants to complete the look.
This is a cute and festive way to show off your baby bump! Paint your whole body white, then add black dots for eyes and a orange dot for the nose. Add some coal buttons down the front of your shirt, and don't forget a cute scarf! You can also paint a carrot on your belly for the snowman's nose.
Juno & Bleeker
For all you movie fans out there, why not dress up as pregnant Juno and her best friend Bleeker? All you need is a plaid skirt or pants, and a white shirt. Add some black glasses frames without the lenses. You can also carry around a stuffed animal to represent Bleeker's dog, or even a real dog if you have one!
This costume is perfect for any avocado lover! Simply wear all green, then add some brown paint or fabric to either your bare belly or your T-shirt to create the avocado pit. Add some green face paint or makeup to complete the look.
Bun in the Oven
This is a classic pregnant Halloween costume that is both cute and clever. All you need is an oven door cover (or make one out of cardboard), and a bunting or baby blanket to put over your head. Cut out two holes for your eyes, then put the oven door cover over your head. Place the bunting or baby blanket over your head and around your shoulders, then put your arms through the holes. You can also add a chef's hat if you want!
This is a cute and easy costume that is perfect for any mom-to-be! All you need is a baby carriage (or make one out of cardboard), and some baby blankets or dolls to put inside. You can also add a sign that says "Baby on Board" or anything else you want!
Ice Ice "Baby"
For a fun and unique costume, dress up as Ice Ice Baby! All you need is a shirt and some paint. Simply paint the words "Ice, Ice" on your t-shirt and then paint an arrow that points to your belly.
This is a fun and unique costume that is perfect for any candy lover! All you need is a white T-shirt, a red skirt, a black marker or paint, and some colored puff balls to resemble gumballs. While wearing the t-shirt, draw a circle around your belly with black paint or a black marker. This forms the gumball machine. Next, take off the shirt, and glue colored gumballs within the gumball machine.
Thing 1 and Thing 2
This is a fun costume for any mom-to-be who is looking for a simple but effective Halloween costume! All you need is one red shirt and a black sharpie. Write "thing 1" towards the top of your shirt, and write "thing 2" over your baby bump! Bonus points if you paint your face white or wear a fun blue wig!
This is a fun and easy costume for any mom-to-be who loves the movie Monsters, Inc.! All you need is a green shirt and some black paint or a black marker.

Sports lovers, this costume is for you! Dress up in baggy basketball shorts and a tank top, and cut your shirt so that your belly shows. With orange and black body paint, paint your baby bump to look like a basketball. Feel free to add any other sports accessories, like a sweatband or whistle!
For this costume, all you need is a red shirt and a yellow form-fitting skirt that you can wear up over your belly. Draw a bear face with face paint, and make a headband that looks like bear ears. To complete the costume, carry a pot of honey!
How to Celebrate Halloween When Pregnant
No matter what costume you choose, there are a few things to keep in mind when navigating Halloween when pregnant.
First and foremost, make sure you're comfortable! Pregnancy can be uncomfortable enough as it is, so make sure your costume is not too tight or constricting.
Make sure you have a plan for going to the bathroom! If your costume is particularly difficult to take on and off, make sure you know where the nearest restroom is so you can avoid any accidents.
Be careful with what you eat. There are a lot of treats and snacks available at Halloween parties, and it can be easy to upset your stomach. Of course, you can enjoy your favorite treats, but also be sure to listen to your body. If you start to get a stomach ache, ease up on the sugar and stick to healthier snacks like fruits and vegetables.
With these tips in mind, you're sure to have a fun and safe Halloween! And remember...by the time Halloween rolls around next year, you'll have a sweet bundle of joy to celebrate with!
