View Full Version : Halloween while pregnant
08-17-2008, 08:53 AM
At work, we have to dress up for Halloween. The problem is, this year I will be pregnant.
I don't know what to be for Halloween, now!
Everyone at work has done the pregnant nun, but 2 years ago some actual nuns came in and left us a bunch of church cards & stuff so now we just don't do that... we don't want to offend people.

I was 8 months pregnant during Halloween a couple of years ago, and I went as a hippie because the free-flowing shirt was the only one that would fit that wasn't maternity! :) I don't know how far along you'll be or how self-conscious you are, but you could paint something on your belly and dress up around that. I've seen targets, smiley faces, jack-o-lanterns, etc.
Here are a couple of links I found real quick:

Aww I like a black cat because you have to wear tight fitting clothes, and it would accentuate your belly lovely. You could find the ears, bow tie, and tail pack at any walmart or claires. :D

I remember seeing those giant baby costumes on a website a while back. Or perhaps a cow (I dont know about you but I feel like one!) The baby costume was actually kinda funny/cute.
Check out this website for some more ideas...I love it! http://www.anniescostumes.com/maternitycostumes.htm
hope that helps you!
I joke with my fiance that I look/feel like humpty dumpty, especially when trying to get up out of bed. when you're egg shaped it's a lot harder than you'd imagine!

I had 2 friends that happened to be prego during halloween (few years back). One went as a banana split...her cute bump was a different flavor of ice cream. The other one went as camel...she wore a brown body suit and sewed a large stuffed camel to her back (after cutting the hump off, so it looked like she was upside down). It was pretty funny. Sounds like fun at your office.

A friend of mine dressed as the Pillsbury Doughboy. She wore a white sweat suit, a chef hat, and white makeup. She also stuffed her clothes. It was cute. =)

The Halloween that I was pregnant, a friend of mine wanted three of us to be the Pink Ladies from Grease.
I, of course, was Rizzo (in the movie, she had a pregnancy scare...)!

The trend around my neighborhood has been to paint jack o lanterns on their bellies... but if this is for work that may not be great advice. My pregnancy over Halloween I was too concerned with Katie's first Halloween, so I pushed the stroller (just incase of a breakdown) and held the camera.

I found a maternity t-shirt online last year that said "Pumpkin Smuggler" and had a picture of a pumpkin right on the belly. I wore it several times during the month of October (not just for Halloween), and everywhere I went I got laughs and smiles.
It was kind of like this one: http://t-shirts.cafepress.com/item/maternity-dark-tshirt-pumpkin-smuggler/181436083
