Well, this is flat-out surprising!

Kim Kardashian, 32, stepped out Monday morning at LAX, looking several inches shorter. The pregnant E! reality star was sans part of her signature look – heels.

And the wardrobe decision – perhaps dictated, in part, by the fact that many pregnant women can experience trouble with their balance – surprised the TV personality herself.

“I never thought I would ever say this … But I’m wearing flats today,” Kardashian Tweeted.

The unlikely choice comes after reports that Kardashian – who is is expecting with boyfriend Kanye West in July – had a miscarriage scare and has been ordered to take it easy.
