Scary Maternity Halloween Costumes

Pregnancy 12

Halloween may be one of my most favorite days of the year, second only to Thanksgiving because I love stuffing and gravy so much. But Halloween! I dress up every year.

My birthday happens to fall two days after, so if I have a get-together, it's often Halloween-themed. Last year I had a 70s costume party and the year before I dressed up as a car hop who had been run over -- blood, guts, tire tracks, and all.

I tend to like the gory costumes and I was reading a post in the Stay at Home Moms Group (must be member to view) about how she too liked the blood and guts aspect of it and wondered if pregnant women should tone it down for Halloween. Would it offend?

For instance, what if a pregnant woman wanted to make a costume with a bloody alien coming out of her belly? (A friend of mine told me about her friend who did this.) 

Or should a witch costume be the furthest she should take it?

What do you think about scary maternity costumes?

I'm also a fan of scary, bloody costumes. If the pregnant woman is ok with it, then she should wear whatever costume she wants!

I don't see any reason you can't be whatever you want to be.

I happen to be showing quite well and plan on being a pregnant nun.

I was pregnant around Halloween last year.  I just wore a top that exposed my belly, and a black skirt, vampire fangs, and covered my entire torso with fake blood.  I went as a vampire with no table manners.

We're using Halloween to announce our pregnancy. I'll be just shy of my second trimester then. We're going to have DH go as a baker, make a bun in the oven costume for me, and dress DD up as a cupcake (she's 18 months).
