Many funny Halloween costumes for pregnant women can be made at home with items the woman may already own.

Pregnant nun

Make your own nun's habit with black fabric and a pattern from a fabric store, or alter an existing costume, such as a grim reaper cloak. Pair an old black cloak with a white turtleneck shirt to create a nun's habit. Cut the sleeves off the turtleneck, then shape the remaining material to cover your shoulders and chest. Layer the turtle neck over the black cloak. Sew black fabric to a thick white headband to create a nun's veil.

Speed bump

Show off your baby bump when you dress as a speed bump. Purchase yellow and black body paint. Find someone to draw a large diamond on your bare belly. Outline the diamond in black and fill it in with yellow. Write "BUMP" in large black letters in the centre of the diamond. Wear a pair of black trousers and shoes. Cut the stomach area out of a long-sleeved black shirt. Apply small strips of yellow tape to your sleeves and pant legs.

Bun in the oven

Find a large cardboard box, and paint the outside white. Cut a hole in the bottom of the box large enough for your head to fit through. Cut a large rectangle out of one side of the box, but do not cut out the bottom of it. Cut out the two sides and top only. Paint the flap white. Draw knobs above the cut-out rectangle, or make your own knobs and glue them onto the box. Wear black trousers and a black top that exposes your belly. Slide the box over your body, and show everyone what you have baking in your oven.

Humpty dumpty

Use your belly to make this popular nursery rhyme come to life. Find a large cardboard box. Paint red bricks around the box. Pin a pair of white socks to baby shoes, then stuff the socks with fabric. Pin the socks to the box. Paint your belly white with white body paint. Draw two eyes and a nose with black body paint. Draw a mouth on with red body paint. Wear a white shirt that exposes your belly and a pair of black trousers. Attach a string to each side of the box. Make the string long enough to fit over each shoulder. Slide the box over your body, and you are now Humpty Dumpty.
