Finding the perfect Halloween costume when you’re pregnant can be quite the endeavor, depending on how far along you are.

This is where a little creativity goes a long way!

Costume Ideas for the First Trimester
Celebrating Halloween while in your first trimester of pregnancy can be tricky. You’re newly pregnant and going through some of the toughest moments but your baby bump isn’t quite that noticeable. Some women may want to shout in from the rooftops, while others may want to wait a bit before sharing the news with the whole world.
In my experience, most women don’t want to announce their pregnancy until they know for sure it is a viable pregnancy and everything is looking good in terms of of pregnancy progression and development. This usually is around the third or fourth month.
So if you’re belly hasn’t quite “popped” yet, and you are ready to share the news in a fun and clever way, the easiest route to make it obvious is to go with Halloween pregnancy t-shirts. They ensure no one is questioning whether that’s a beer belly or a baby bump! Check out some of my favorite ideas:
If you’re feeling a little extra creative and want to add a few accessories to those t-shirts to really customize your look, here are some additional ideas:
- Get the Thing 1, Thing 2 t-shirt and add a blue wig tutu and accessories.
- Go as a team: your partner can dress the technician role, while mom-to-be dresses the part with this X-Ray Skeleton mom and baby t-shirt.
- Keep it simple with the Bun in the Oven t-shirt that says it all.
- Go the classic route with this adorable Pumpkin Pregnancy T-Shirt – you can add a little accessory to dress it up too.
- Tell the world who’s a mommy-to-be with this cute Mummy to Be T-Shirt.
