I've never been pregnant on Halloween before, but I imagine it is the best of both worlds. You get to eat all the candy you want and you can use your beautiful baby bump to make up some
actually funny pregnancy Halloween costumes. That's the dream, right?
There are a lot of great ideas out there when it comes to pregnant Halloween costumes, but I just can't get behind the bare belly being painted as a pumpkin. (Also, I'm just not a fan of my own bare pregnant belly being shown off for the neighborhood so I can score some Kit-Kats.) There are so many creative costumes out there, and it's not often you get to rock a baby bump on Halloween. So why not use it to make a costume that actually gets everybody laughing?
Don't worry — there are no zombie hands busting out of a mom's belly here. Nor are there any baby doll heads hanging from between your legs as a costume. I'm all for gory and gross costumes, but these 11 pregnancy Halloween costumes are actually funny and will help you win the costume contest for sure. Just ask what the prize is — if it's that cheap candy with the orange and black wrappers, you might as well stay at home to watch

Who could forget the art that is Miley Cryus's "Wrecking Ball" music video? To recreate the look, you'll need an inexpensive
long sleeve black shirt so you can cut a hole right where your belly pokes out. Put the shirt on first and trace the outline of your belly so you'll know where to snip. Then take the black shirt off, put a gray camisole on and layer it with the first shirt. Your gray belly is now the wrecking ball, just like magic. Throw a chain necklace on and dress a Barbie doll up like Miley in the video. Wrap the doll's hands in the necklace and let it sit right on your belly so she can come in like a wrecking balllllll. | Dark Jeans, $10, H&M | Green Skirt, $8, H&M | Zip-Up Hoodie, $14, Amazon Orange and White Striped Shirt, $5, Belk

"Oh yeah" will be your trademark phrase when you dress up as the Kool-Aid man. All you need is a
red t-shirt, some black fabric paint, and cardboard to turn into two pieces of a brick wall. Use the paint to draw the Kool-Aid man face right on your belly in the red shirt and attach the cardboard (that now looks like brick wall) to either side of your belly. It will look like the Kool-Aid man just burst through a wall and will delight all 90s children everywhere.

You'll be the hilarious life of the party when you dress as a disco ball for Halloween, my friend. Dress in all black with

Once you're dressed, use fabric glue to stick the scarf to your belly area, forming it around so it looks like a disco ball in the center of your shirt. Now you're ready to party like you're ah ah ah ah stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
