My husband and I were invited to a Halloween party – 90’s themed! – and since everything in my life seems to revolve around my pregnancy these days, I thought I’d research ways to maybe incorporate the bump into our costumes. Then i thought…this could be a fun blog!

Well, it turns out my bump isn’t really all that big – yet – so we probably won’t wind up using any of these ideas. But, they’re too fun not to share. So, without further adieu – my 5 favorite pregnancy Halloween costumes as gathered via the web:

#1. The Prego Jar – dressing yourself up as a jar of spaghetti sauce isn’t really all that exciting normally, but this one is a really fun idea — especially if you haven’t told everyone the news yet. Be sure to say “It’s in there!”

#2. The Expectant Celeb Cover – Whether you go for the originator (Demi for Vanity Fair) or the countless who have followed (including Serena’s recent stunner!), all you need is a whole lot of guts, a nude body  stocking and someone to hold the cover/frame. (I briefly considered the Demi cover for my 90’s costume but I don’t have the guts!!)

#3. The Milkman’s Kid – This is a couple costume where you dress as the 50’s housewife and he shows up as the friendly – very friendly – neighborhood milkman. Not only is this is a great opportunity for you to get all decked out in a bright vintage dress, full with apron, and some pinup curls – it’s also absolutely hilarious.

#4. Baby-cado. This one is just too cute. Please note: your baby is only the pit for this costume. I’m sure he or she isn’t actually “the pits”. That comes at about two years old, according to my mom.

#5. Bun in The Oven – This last adorable couples’ costume is cute, simple and comfy too — great for later in your pregnancy! You dress in whatever still fits and fashion an oven around yourself with a cleverly placed and decorated cardboard box (baby inside, of course). He dons a chef’s hat, apron and continually checks in on the baking process. It’s silly, cute and interactive!
