6 Tell-Tale Signs Kim Kardashian Was Pregnant (VIDEO)
Although they don't usually shy away from the spotlight, the pair kept their good news under wraps until the wee hours of Dec. 31, when West announced his girlfriend's pregnancy during a concert in Atlantic City, N.J.
But was the writing on the wall even before West's announcement? Celebuzz has gathered six clues that Kim might have given away during the past month. The obvious suspect? Her online footprints, of course!
1. Maternal instincts
Kardashian was in a nurturing mood on Dec. 14. In a series of Tweets, the proud aunt didn't miss a chance to coo over her nephew Mason Disick, who was showered with nothing but affection on his third birthday. "Love you Mase," she shared.
2. Wardrobe plans
Nearly a week before West revealed that Kim is expecting, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star seemed to have her soon-to-be-expanding belly on her mind. She gushed about bare midriffs -- her favorite spring 2013 trend from the fashion runways -- saying on her blog, "Spring 2013 runways were filled with flashes of midriff and I am loving this trend! I’m not talking full-on stomach baring — more like subtle yet sexy peek-a-boo flashes of the midriff." Hmmm, alluding to her growing bump, perhaps?
3. Pregnancy cravings?
She was already hankering for a sweet treat: On Dec. 23, Kardashian shared a pic of her sweet (yet tangy) late-night snack: a hefty box of holiday-inspired Sweettarts. "Yum!" she wrote alongside a pic on Instagram.
The (almost) first-time mom got a little philosophical on Christmas Eve for her "Motivational Monday" blog post, sharing a pic of the quote: "Each day is a gift, that's why it's called the present." Seems like Kardashian received the greatest gift of all this year!
5. Sickly setback
A day after celebrating Christmas, Kardashian was dealt a case of the flu -- or was it morning sickness? "Getting the flu on Christmas is no bueno. I hope it passes soon :-(," she revealed. Adding, "In bed with the flu all day. Praying this goes away fast!"
6. Wrapping up
In leading up to her big announcement, Kardashian was snapped dozing off in front of a rack of clothing, curled up in an shroud of blankets. Hiding her burgeoning belly, we presume? "Oh how I miss those days of waking up looking so glam!" she added.
