For expectant moms, figuring out what to wear on any given day is a bit of a struggle, but figuring out what to wear for Halloween is a whole other bag of worms candy.

Before you have your doubts, hear us out—these pregnant Halloween costumes are easy, fun, and most importantly, comfy. Basically, everything you'd want in a maternity Halloween costume.

Better yet, if you have other kiddos, make October 31 a full-on family affair—future baby and all—and sync up costumes with the rest of your crew. Go for coordinating Star Wars or Cookie Monster looks, fit to match your pop culture Halloween costume of choice.
