Leggings may be a pregnant girl's best friend, but that doesn't mean what you wear up top has to be as relaxed. Here, Kardashian's belted waist defines her bump while lace and a deep v-neck adds some sex appeal.

You can't go wrong with a LBD to accentuate the curves created by your LBB (little baby bump). With her body-hugging black sheath, Kardashian proves you can still look sexy while-almost-completely covered up.
