Again, With The Pumpkin…

Although you may be reluctant to dress up for Halloween this year, need I remind you that this is a holiday that involves free chocolate? Perhaps that could entice you to try on a costume or two…

If you're not a fan of the whole bloody-baby-hands-sticking-out-of-your-belly Halloween pregnancy costume that seems to be everywhere, perhaps something a little more creative might do it for you.

Pregnant Halloween costumes

Mummy style

For starters, you could go all Jessica Simpson and make like a "mummy." Use some old long-john underwear and muslin wrap for an easy DIY costume.

Magic 8 Ball

For the less creative among us (cough, cough), I love the idea of going as a Magic 8 ball. Just don a basic black T-shirt and slap a number 8 on a big white sticker on your bump and you've got yourself a clever costume. Let's just hope no one tries to shake you for the answer.

Dress your baby bump for Halloween

Lil' pumpkin

This costume is definitely much more up to my speed. Paint a jack-o'-lantern face on an old (large!) T-shirt so your baby bump is a living pumpkin!

It's the milkman's...

If you have a partner hitting the Halloween scene with you, go retro and cause quite the scandal as dressing as a pregnant housewife — and have him wear a milkman costume!

Bun in the oven

I so wish I would have been pregnant enough at Halloween to pull this look off. An old cardboard box, some paint and some thrift-store suspenders would be enough to make this classic adage come to life.
