Last Minute Halloween Costumes for Expecting Moms

October 25, 2018

To support positive pregnancy outcomes, you may have to implement several lifestyle changes. The party-filled candy-centric holiday of Halloween may not seem to mesh well with a new mom’s healthy eating and alcohol-free lifestyle.

At any stage of pregnancy, you can still attend and enjoy friends’ Halloween parties. After all, you need a strong support system and there’s no better way to relax than by spending time with friends during this light-hearted holiday. This is also a great time to connect with other moms.

If you haven’t thought much about your Halloween costume, but are excited to dress up and participate in the festivities, consider these ideas:

Juno and Bleeker
Jessica Alba pulled it off with flying colors last year. If you are in your second trimester and looking for a way to celebrate your belly, impersonating Ellen Page’s character may be the answer. Bonus points if you have a friend who will play along as Bleeker.

Magic 8 Ball
Well, you do have all the answers. This costume is clever, simple and instantly recognizable. You can even find a ready-made maternity shirt on Amazon featuring the iconic white ball with the black 8 in the middle.

Yes, your belly happens to be the same size and shape as a magnificent pumpkin. Make the most of it this Halloween by dressing it accordingly. This is another costume you can find as a maternity shirt, making it the ideal comfortable and cute option.

A brown shirt and simple cardboard cutout painted green is a quick and easy solution to highlight your bump for Halloween. Wear dark pants or leggings to let the avocado and bump stand out.

Mama + Baby Skeleton
A Halloween maternity skeleton shirt reflects a cartoon drawing of the bones of your upper body. It also shows the teeny tiny bones of your baby. For that extra-cute factor, add a blue or pink bow to announce the gender of your new bundle of joy.

Gumball Machine
Red leggings or a skirt, a white shirt with multi-colored puff-balls glued all over your belly area, and a matching red beret turn you into a gumball machine. Carry a tiny black purse with a “25¢” sign and start your little one’s college fund off right.

No matter how you decide to celebrate Halloween this year, be sure to take extra-good care of yourself and your growing baby. Get plenty of rest and remember to take your prenatal vitamins. Talk to your doctor about how the Prenate® Vitamin Family can help support you nutritionally throughout your pregnancy and beyond.
