Kim KardashianWell, it looks like the wait is finally over. Kim Kardashian's baby bump is finally starting to show, as you can clearly see in this photo of her leaving the gym in L.A.

Up until now, Kim really hasn't looked pregnant, which is probably why she's been spotted wearing outfits that aren't even remotely maternity-like, in particular the feather covered get-up she wore recently while out and about in Paris with Kanye West. (I still don't understand that one.)

But in this gym photo, Kim definitely appears a bit fuller around her mid-section, even though the rest of her bod appears to be in tip-top shape.

(Not that I'm surprised.)

I mean, she's a Kardashian for crying out loud, so all eyes are going to be on her growing bod as things progress. It's really no big shock that she's hitting the gym and keeping up with her fitness routine even though she has a bun in the oven.

And all I can say is, good for her and more power to her -- because she's doing a heck of a lot better than I did while I was expecting my son.

I tried to work out. I really did. Ok, so I only tried a couple times, but I gave it my all on both occasions. Other than going for a walk or two here and there, I did attempt to do a prenatal yoga DVD -- and I pretty much laughed my way through the entire thing because I couldn't keep my balance to save my life. (In my defense, it's kind of hard to do a tree pose when you're carrying all that extra weight up front.)

But my nonchalant attitude about pregnancy fitness definitely caught up with me, and I can't help but wonder if I would've still gained 50 pounds had I committed to a regular workout routine. Oh well, I lost it all, so I guess hindsight doesn't even really matter at this point. Still, it would have been nice not to have to literally work my butt off for the extra weight to disappear.

Yep, you have to give Kim props for making an effort. She'll never regret those extra sweat sessions for one second if they wind up paying off.

Have you been working out regularly during your pregnancy?
