So you're feeling big and fat and pregnant. That doesn't have to mean your spooky holiday is ruined. There are plenty of great maternity Halloween costumes to choose from.

The first thing you need to ask yourself is whether you want to use your belly bulge to your advantage, or if you want to try to hide it.

There are plenty of great costumes on either side of the coin. It's up to you. Do you want to escape from being the pregnant girl for a night, or to you want to relish in it?

I don't think there's anything wrong with either choice. It just depends on what you're in the mood for.

If you want to use the future kid to your advantage, then you could go as Santa Clause. This is a great costume that uses your bowl full of jelly belly to full affect.

Try to get a red top that will be tight and thin. To make use of the belly, it needs to really show. A funny costume for people that know you are pregnant is to go as a fat man.

You dress up as butch as you can, and then you wear a shirt that your belly can slide under. People will get a hoot out of how gross you look.

Along these same lines, you can go as a plumber. You wear a plumber get up that's just a little too small for you. Then, your belly can slide out.

One last funny costume to wear is the pregnant cheerleader outfit. With this costume you dress up as a cheerleader, and then the pregnant belly makes it hilarious.

If you do not want to advertise your belly, then there are still some great maternity Halloween costumes that you can go with. These will just be baggier.

Halloween is a great time to make people forget that you are pregnant. You could go as a monk. A monk wears a very baggy robe. It is perfect for hiding a big fat belly.

You could go as an elephant. An elephant costume is pretty big. People probably will not notice your belly, since you are the size of an elephant anyway.

If you want to go for a cuter costume, then you could go as a swan. Really, when you are shopping for a Halloween costume while you are pregnant, the important thing is to go big.

You can get costumes that aren't specifically made for someone pregnant; you just have to get them in larger sizes. A normal costume in a larger size can drape over you and give the illusion that you are normal again.

For one night you can just enjoy yourself. If this is what you want, then costumes like these can get it for you. So whether you want to advertise your belly or hide it, there are great maternity Halloween costumes to choose from. I hope this will help you get started. Have a great and happy Halloween.
