Halloween is just around the corner and if you're anything like me, you still have to figure out your costume. Some may panic at the very last minute scramble to find the perfect alter ego for the night of trick-or-treating or your fun Halloween party, but don't fear!

If you're pregnant this Halloween, there are some really fun costumes that you can put on to accentuate or hide your growing belly. You can use the roundness as an add-on to the costume or you can be clever and hide it so no one knows.

The Solar System

I love “nerdy” costumes and this one certainly fits that bill. You can alter the costume a bit to have your pregnant belly become the planet (or sun/moon) of your choice and it's fun for adult or kid-friendly costume parties. Also, you can easily make it yourself, quickly.

Baseball Player

We've seen the painted belly basketballs often and this costume idea plays on that – but with a baseball. You can get creative and clever or just go with the bump as a ball – both work for last minute and are still fun for any Halloween event.
