Painted Preggos - Time to get your belly ready for Halloween!
Elizabeth_WebMD_Staff posted:
The last days I have run into a group of very pregnant moms at school drop off. This morning they were talking about painting their bellies for Halloween!

So, put on your creative hats, buy that body paint and let's see what you come up with!

I had been thinking about this the past couple of days. I was thinking about painting it as a beach ball, but now I don't think I will go the painting route. I saw an idea about ironing the image of a sonogram on a t-shirt and dress as an x-ray machine.

Haha...I'm getting a red sweatshirt, painting a face on it, and going as the kool-aid man. My sister let me paint a pumpkin on her tummy when she was pregnant, but I'm not that brave.

I was 8 months along for Halloween in 2009. My mom had a pumpkin costume that normally needed a pillow to fill it out but I was able to fill it out naturally. It was the perfect costume since that was pretty much how I felt.

I was 7 1/2 months pregnant with my first at Halloween. I had DH paint a pumpkin on my belly but I'd only let him take pictures, I wasn't going out like that. It was fun and it was a nice way to get DH involved. We teased that baby Earley was a pumpkin for her first Halloween.

Okay, that is the best picture ever, and I want to do it! Just for a picture,'s supposed to be chilly on Halloween!

I, however, am not yet to 3rd tri, so I'm not wearing a pumpkin belly...quite yet. Oh well!
