12 Maternity Ugly Christmas Sweaters FTW

Ad failed to load

An ugly Christmas sweater party is probably one of the most popular holiday party themes. Even if it's not the theme, showing up in an ugly sweater to a holiday event will always be hilarious. The key is finding the best ugly Christmas sweater, like one that your grandma would love — gaudy and festive. But what about the pregnant ladies? Do they even make maternity ugly Christmas sweaters? It's not fair to be left out of all the holiday sweater fun just because you are expecting.

I know for me I have worn the same ugly sweater for the past four years and even though it's been rocked so many times, last year especially it was a big hit, so my plan was to keep wearing it until it no longer fits. However, I realized that one holiday season I might be pregnant, and that I must not be the only one with this dilemma.

Thankfully, stores like Amazon, Target, and even Etsy have some amazing maternity Christmas sweaters that everyone will enjoy. If you aren't too far along in your pregnancy, stealing your S.O's sweater or picking up a larger size could be an alternative. You just need something that's going to be big enough to cover that belly bump. And if you're far along in your pregnancy, don't worry, there are sweaters made for you, too.

Hot flashes are not fun, and some cities actually observe warm Christmases so a sweater is not always the best choice. If you are looking for a funny holiday t-shirt that won't make you feel overheated, this is the perfect one that will surely get a laugh.
