I bought a cheap pair of boxing gloves at target and used make up to give myself a black eye when i was pregnant...therefore i went as a "knocked up" person for halloween a couple years ago...it was cheap and easy and the best part about it was that i could wear very comfy clothes and shoes :)

Cheap idea: Buy an orange t-shirt and draw a jack-o-lantern right where your belly is. I think that would be hillarious! :)

I'm only at 29 weeks, so I decided to go around as "a bun in the oven" (well, Baby's costume is the bun, I'm the oven lol). I took a cardboard box, covered it with foil, and removed the flaps from the top and bottom so it fits around my middle. I drew an oven door with magic marker, and taped a picture under saran wrap of a bun. I then drew a timer set to Jan 12 (my due date). Underneath I have gray sweats and a t-shirt, and I'm thinking of hanging a pot-holder from my waistband. Hope you have a fun Halloween!!

I was prego during Halloween with all 3 of my kids. Everyones favorite costume was when I dressed up as a treasure Troll. I was 8 months pregnant. I wore a pair of comfortable pants and cut a shirt off so it showed my belly. (I wrote Treasure Troll on the shirt) I then went and got a gem big enough to cover my belly button. I stuck it on with double stick tape. ( My belly button never popped out, you could always paint on a gem) I then sprayed and teased my hair so it stuck stright up it the air. I sprayed it all orange. I won for best costume that year. You could always do a search for pregnant costumes. Have fun!

I was around 8 months pregnant one Halloween and felt like a house! What I did for my costume was simply wore a white shirt with black pants. I had a halloween scarf so I wore that too. Then out of orange construction paper I made a big pumpkin. I used a little bit of brown construction paper for a stem and some green for a leaf. On the pumpkin I wrote in large letters I FEEL LIKE THE GREAT PUMPKIN!
It was a hit and cheap for me since I had all of those items.
Good luck!

If your man is going too-you could be:
-a nun and a priest
-a housewife and the milk man
-a baby factory and a factory worker(use tag board and use a pencil to draw blocks of the building and a big door with a sign abve it that says "Factory", and a tube made form construction paper with cotton balls around it for the smoke stack)
-Juno and what's his name from "Juno" (he'd have to wear the short shorts and sweatbands)
-Angelina Jolie and Brad Pit (get an assortment of dolls and strap them to each of you-don't forget Brad's signature hat)
-Veruca Salt (blue) & Charlie (Charlie and the chocolate factory)
-Jon and Kate plus 9!
Have fun!

I once saw a pregnant woman dressed up as a red neck woman. She just put on a small tank top so her belly peaked out the bottom, a flanel shirt unbuttoned and a pair of old jeans. For makeup she put on bright pink lip stick, black eyeliner, blue eye shadow, blackened one tooth, and put on hickies. She used a crimping iron on her hair and put it up in either combs or a banana clip. Then she took her daughters dolls and made backpack carriers out of rope so they were just hanging off here and there. It was so funny everyone loved it.

If your husband is dressing up too, buy one box each of Hefty garbage bags and Glad garbage bags. You each wear a garbage bag (cut an opening for your head and arms and pull it over your head) and cut the brand labels off the boxes and attach them to your garbage bags and put an "I'm" in front of each. You go as "I'm Hefty" and he goes as "I'm Glad".

Wear an orange shirt. Place black tape for lines down your stomach. Take some netting (the type that holds stuffed animals) from the dollar store. Placed the net around your head and whala~ you are a basketball hoop with a basketball coming down from the net. Black pants, gym shoes are then the players shoes sticking out... Very cheap, the baby is a center focus and you will never get another "perfect basket." Have fun & congratulations....

buy a orange sweatshirt or t-shirt (or dye one), draw or paint a jack-o-lantern face on the belly part, wear black or brown pants and a green or brown stocking cap.

Had to throw this in: My sil had a dr appointment on Halloween day years ago and she had my brother draw a jack-o-lantern face on her belly. Doctor had a good laugh when he lifted up her shirt to listen to the baby.

I once dressed as my father-in-law. Overweight elderly farmer. I used bib overalls, a large flannel shirt, clunky boots, white hairspray and fake teeth. You could do something similar as a cowboy. I also once saw someone use a large cardboard box to dress as a stove, with a note that said "bun in the oven" on the door.

Hi E. -

A co-worker of mine got some brown sweats, sewed / glued a white circle on her belly, and then added a heart to it and got some ears on a headband and was Tenderheart Care Bear. She looked super cute, and said she was so comfortable, she wished she could dress like that every day! Hope you have fun with whatever costume you choose!

If you're going as a couple, have your spouse, bf, so, dress as the mailman or the milkman and you dress as if in the 50's. Get a large cardboard box and cut a front door like a stove/ oven, where a white shirt and pain your belly as a bun = Bun in the Oven. Or paint a round thermometer around the belly on a white shirt, have BABY! on part and an arrow pointing as close in relation to your due date, maybe make 9 or 40 tick marks to help indicate 'doneness'.

Last year we were going to go as the housewife and the mailman, but we ended up in labor and couldn't go out! Have fun!

Last weekend I saw a very cute pregnant woman dressed as a Christmas tree! She had a green dress, wrapped some material she had knotted around herself so it looked like lights and wore a cute tall hat so it looked like a tree topper. Even better - she had on green leggings and green COMFORTABLE shoes.

Hi E.....I had a girlfriend who took a huge black sweatshirt, cut a big circle in it (so her belly would stick out) and then painted her belly to look like a jack o lantern. All orange and then black triangles for eyes, nose, and toothy smile. It was really cute and super easy! She said her husband had to paint the face because she couldn't see it :)

Happy Halloween!

I was only a few months pregnant and went as the goddess of fertility. I wore a gold dress and a crown. If you have a nice dress and can make a crown, why not? Of course there's always a pumpkin.
