If I'm showing enough by Halloween, I want to wear a sash that says "Watermelon Seed Spitting Runner Up"

Like I swallowed instead of spit... and didn't win...

I didn't know you could get pg by swallowing.

: these are cracking me up!

I got an idea myself for those of us not showing too much... I might go as myself in 6 months... just stuff a balloon under my shirt, you know?

I'm trying to think of easy/appropriate things b/c I don't get to go to the wild party my friend throws this year-- we're going to a concert that weekend up the coast-- but I kinda want to dress up still for the day of, and I teach high school!

Okay, that is hilarious, and waaaay too cerebral. I love it!

I'm actually due on 10/31, so my dilemma is...if I go into labor (which I'm fairly certain won't happen - not counting on the due date at all), do I want to have to deal with the hassle of getting cleaned up before going in to deliver? I won't want to show up with a painted belly, too messy for my preference. I guess it'll be really fast to clean, if I use some washable stuff.

Wow, I can ramble, can't I?:

These are great ideas!

Danielle~ You could always go as a pregnant woman in labor, hospital gown, socks, etc. Or you could go as caution tape. Black outfit with yellow lines diagonally across and a saying something like "caution: could go into labor any minute"

Heres an idea..

Dress up in normal clothes, attach a paper bag to your belly with "Taking my child Trick-or-Treating" written on it... something like that

If I had been due later than August and showing, I was going to dress up like Lara Croft-- black shorts, black tank top, black boots, french braid, fake gun strapped to my thigh-- and be Lara Croft, Womb Raider. But i've been Lara Croft, Tomb Raider several times before, so i've already got the costume.

Or you could always wear a flannel shirt, work jeans, work boots, and be a laborer.

So many good ideas here!

One of my friends suggested Tarzan, Jane, and Boy except I'd be expecting boy rather than finding him in the jungle!

i went as saturn when i was (hugely) pregnant with dd--it was pretty fun. i dressed all in black, stuck foil circles all over me, wrapped my belly in stripey orange fabric and hung rings made from wire and wrapped in cheesecloth from my shoulders with fishing line. it worked!

Note the baby bottle nipples on my belly. Ahhh. Good times.

I'm 6 momths pregnant & after racking our brains for weeks for costume ideas my husband & I stumbled upon a Bun In The Oven costume. It's shaped like a little oven with an oven door that opens & has a piece of foam inside that looks like a bun. It's nice & roomy & fits well over my growing belly. Plus my husband found a matching costume that reads The Bun Maker. It's an apron & an oversized chefs hat.
You could easily makes both of these outfits at home using a cardboard box for the oven & an apron you have lying around for the other costume.
We can't believe we didn't think of it sooner, with us always talking about our little bun in the oven.

Last Halloween, I was preggo at the same time as Britney Spears, so I dressed up as her. I got one of DHs wifebeaters, wrote "I heart K Fed" on it, wore a long peasant skirt, put my hair up all messy, and smudged makeup under my eyes. It was a big hit!

I think a classic one is to go as the guy with the beer belly. Put on a cap and wear a dirty t-shirt that shows your belly. You might be able to find Halloween coupons for it online somewhere.

Ooooh I was really hoping a thread like this would pop up. I'm a waitress and I love to dress up for Halloween. Some of the locals actually make it a point to come in on Halloween just to see what I'm wearing! Taking Notes: :

Wow! Love the Mama Cat! Hilarious!

In love with the Hubs (6-03) & : Kookie Pookie Girl (c/s 5-05) & Bouncy Big Boy (vbac 2-07) & : Miss Cheeky Cheeks (hbac 11-08) 100*90* 100lbs = Las Vegas : Almost there!

Dude. These are all funny but kinder egg made snort. That's awesome! I would love to do that one but we don't have them around here so I don't think anyone would get it. I'm eagerly watching this thread though. I did just read that when Heidi Klum was super pregnant one Halloween, she went as an apple and Seal dressed as Eve--I thought that was cute.

If you can pull it off, do a couple's costume where you go as Joe and Bonnie from Family Guy.
