Here it is, Halloween, and you are expecting a wonderful bundle of joy. You are already finding that your daily wardrobe doesn’t fit. All you want to wear is leggings and a baggy shirt. Girl, I’ve been there….twice.
I have compiled a list of 10 creative Halloween costumes that will make that beautiful baby bump the centerpiece of your Halloween costume
1. Because your bundle of joy is sure to be sweet as can be, turn your belly into a gumball machine.
I have always loved this idea. It looks relatively simple, provided you have the patience and coordination to use a hot glue gun to apply these colorful pom poms one-by-one. You know what would be even cuter? If the dad-to-be could wear all black and attach an over–sized coin made of cardboard to himself!
2. “I Came In Like A Wrecking Ball” – Miley Cyrus hit song inspired costume.
I admittedly am not very familiar with this song beyond its title. When I saw this costume idea in Good Housekeeping’s Article, “23 Best Pregnant Halloween Costumes for 2017”, I thought it was adorable and SUPER simple to pull together! Black shirt with a hole, gray tank top underneath, long chain necklace and small doll.
3. Pick your mood!
How about an emoji? They are so popular and EVERYWHERE now. I did a whole birthday party themed around emojis for my oldest’s 13th birthday this year. Another simple, minimal effort costume that you can totally customize to your mood that day, week or minute! Grab a black dress, preferably stretchy because, let’s be real, mama ain’t got time for all that tight fitted stuff, and some felt. Get to crafting your emoji and attach to your black dress!

4. Oh Yeah!
This one might take a little more effort than the previous ones, but as a 90’s kid, I LOVE this! I can’t help but say “Oh yeah!” in my best Macho Man Randy Savage voice…in my head. The Kool-aid man part should be simple, but crafting the broken wall may take some time. Some cardboard, paint and an exacto knife should get you on your way!
5. Of course I’m Prego!
I am a huge fan of witty puns and this one takes the cake! I have seen Preggo pasta sauce used as a pregnancy announcement, but as a costume it is epic! Red shirt, felt cut into veggie shapes and Prego label….ta da! Pure Wow posted their own list of costume ideas for pregnant women which is where I saw this.
