Figure-hugging dresses, cropped lace tops and Twitpics are about as close as fans will get to seeing Kim Kardashian’s baby bump.
A source confirms exclusively to In Touch that the star, who's seven months pregnant, toyed with the idea of following in A-lister footsteps by revealing her belly on a magazine cover — but changed her mind at the last minute.

"She was considering doing the Demi Moore-style pregnant photo shoot,” a source tells In Touch exclusively, but she ultimately bowed out.
