Halloween can be pretty boring for pregnant women. Yes, their big ol’ bumps mean they’re often stuck indoors, missing out on all the trick-or-treating antics. Well, not these mothers-to-be. Why? Because they’ve gotten super creative with their baby bumps and made some ghoulishly fantastic costumes in the process.

Doctors invariably give expectant moms the typical warnings about morning sickness and, later, the happy news about the baby’s gender. But what they don’t often tell you is that late-term pregnancy bellies can double up as very realistic redneck man-guts for Halloween.

This costume is winning all the Halloween awards for us. It’s just the perfect combination of misleadingly cute and disagreeably gruesome. A gory unicorn horn? Doesn’t get much more Halloween than that, in our opinion.
This imaginative couple have re-enacted a scene from the classic teen movie Juno – in which Ellen Page plays a girl who finds herself dealing with an unplanned pregnancy while Michael Cera portrays her hapless dad-to-be. These guys above have made perfect use of that baby bump, for sure.
Why let a little thing like being eight months preggo stop you from wearing your fave Halloween costume? This zombie baby – who seems perhaps overly keen to go trick or treating – definitely adds a certain something to the outfit.
All the best costumes take is a bit of imagination and patience plus a whole lot of crafting glue. But turning your belly into a giant gumball candy machine, as this expectant mom has, must be particularly challenging. Well, that’s Halloween dedication for you.

A grisly Alien head bursting out of a woman’s bloody bump – now we’re talking! Yes, this expectant mom has really gone the whole hog, with blood spatters on her hands and a suitably terrified expression.

For this costume, a baby bump doubles up once again as a convincing man belly. This time, however, it’s one for the comedy fans. Yes, the mama-in-the-making here is dressed up as Carl Brutananadilewski from the Adult Swim show Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Uncanny, we tell you!
The tale of Humpty Dumpty and his fall from grace is a suitably frightening inspiration for a Halloween costume. Here, however, an expectant mom has taken the fear factor up a notch by adding a leering grin to the face of her egg/bump.

This oyster pearl get-up is certainly imaginative and beautiful – but also a little bit gross. In fact, it feels like maybe you shouldn’t look directly at the baby bump.
Finally, this mother-to-be is looking way too serene and relaxed for such grisly Halloween attire. Blood, guts and… a creepy baby doll bursting out from a real baby bump. This is, surely, what Halloween is all about.
