Kylie Jenner has scarcely been seen in public since numerous outlets confirmed she's pregnant.
The reality star has shared the occasional photo on social media, but rarely of her belly.
And she certainly hasn't confirmed the VERY strong rumor at any point, either.
Will we even see Kylie again before she gives birth to her first child?
One would have to imagine so, although recent reports have suggested Jenner really is going to lay as low as possible until she becomes a mother.
"Kylie wants to disappear and be out of the spotlight and focus on her health and happiness," an insider recently told People Magazine, claiming Jenner won't even "address her pregnancy" until it's over with.
For what reason?
Multiple sources have said Kylie thinks she's an ugly pregnant person.
Considering she's sky-rocketed to Instagram fame largely due to her revealing pictures, it's not hard to understand why a new, significantly larger figure may be difficult for the star to digest.
This is why Kylie supposedly has a master plan to get rid of said figure as quickly as she can.
According to Radar Online, the 20-year old is "very insecure with her weight gain" and, as a result, her loved ones are "trying to make her feel better."
But to no avail.
The pregnant star has been asking "if it's possible get [liposuction] immediately" after giving birth, this same report alleges.
This, of course, is frowned upon in the United States. Or in nearly any first world country, really.
It's dangerous to go under the knife after your body goes through some as traumatic as squeezing a human being out of your vagina.
Having had her request denied, Radar writes that Kylie "asked if she could to another country" for the weight loss procedure.
Thankfully, there are apparently a few voices of reason here.
For all the issues one could understandably take with Kim, Khloe or Kim Kardashian, this Radar source says the sisters advised Kylie against such a terrible idea.
They told her she would have to shed the weight "naturally," as Kim blogged about non-stop shortly after giving birth to her two kids.
Why cutting pounds so darn important to this family?
We wish we knew.
The sisters are setting a pretty terrible example by so constantly bringing up their bodies and their work out routines and their supposed need to weigh a certain amount.
We mean...come on now!
Kylie Jenner is about to be a mother!
She ought to be excited about the bundle of joy that's about to enter her life, not what she looks like when she steps in front of a mirror.

Do the names Lake Wobegon or Prairie Home Companion sound familiar to you? Well, Garrison Keillor is the man who created that long-running series.
And Keillor is now the very latest to be exposed for alleged sexual misconduct. In fact, he's been fired.
Interestingly, it was Keillor himself who made certain that the news became public. And he claims that there's more to the story.
Garrison Keillor is a radio host, author, and voice actor whose work is widely recognized.
In an email sent to the Associated Press, he makes it known that he has been fired from Minnesota Public Radio, where he has worked for nearly 50 years.
"I've been fired over a story that I think is more interesting and more complicated than the version M.P.R. heard. Most stories are."
That line is the most widely circulated from the email, but there was more:
He refers to it as "poetic irony to be knocked off the air by a story, having told so many of them myself."
That's a very colorful description, and even a charming one.
(We don't know if it's appropriate, given the circumstances and subject matter, for him to wax poetic)
Still, he says that he doesn't intend to fight to keep his job.
"But I'm 75 and don't have any interest in arguing about this. And I cannot in conscience bring danger to a great organization I've worked hard for since 1969."
He did not go into any detail in that letter. But that doesn't mean that he's kept mum about the whole thing.
In an email to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Garrison Keillor went into further detail about his version of events:
"I meant to pat her back after she told me about her unhappiness and her shirt was open and my hand went up it about six inches."
Sometimes a hand ends up under clothing rather than above it (though that's certainly never happened to me in a work situation), but ... six inches is pretty far for a hand to travel by accident.
He describes how they both responded.
"She recoiled. I apologized."
That sounds pretty standard.
"I sent her an email of apology later and she replied that she had forgiven me and not to think about it."
He says that things changed later.
"We were friends. We continued to be friendly right up until her lawyer called."
Well, he spins a very compelling story. But, as he noted above, he's been doing that for longer than most of us have been alive.
Now, based upon Keillor's own words, we might interpret him as something of clumsy old man, too absorbed in storytelling and his thoughts to realize where he's putting his hands.
But we haven't actually heard the woman's account of this.
While we're by no means suggesting that Garrison Keillor is Minnesota Public Radio's very own Weinstein, we have to remember that, particularly when faced with only a single accusation, a man even as notorious as Weinstein might point their own, entirely believable, version of events.
While we only know of one incident, hearing only the accused man's description of the alleged interaction doesn't leave us in a place where we'd feel comfortable drawing a conclusion about what really happened.
However, the news of his firing has left fans shocked.
At least, as far as it's possible to still be shocked by anything, anywhere in 2017.
Just this morning, Donald Trump accused Joe Scarborough of murder in a tweet ... and that was after retweeting radical, Islamophobic shock-videos from a fringe right politician in Europe.
Many feel that we're living in grim times. Often people joke that this is "the timeline God abandoned."
But others think of the turmoil of 2017 -- politically, and in terms of the countless powerful men accused of being sex monsters -- as like growing pains.
Or perhaps like the storm before the calm. Maybe the world is in the midst of an upheaval as our society purges its worst elements and prepares to become a better place.
Let's hope so.

Jenelle Evans got a whole lot of attention on Monday when she and her husband, David Eason, sent out a series of cease and desist letters.
To several of their fellow Teen Mom stars.
It was dumb. Really, really dumb.
Apparently she and David feel like everyone else has been making "defamatory statements" about them, and the situation is bad enough to involve lawyers.
Unfortunately, their letters don't seem to getting the reaction they'd hoped for -- because really all that is happening is that everyone is laughing at them.

2. Oh, Honey ...
3. This is Not the Way
4. "I Don't Even Talk About You"
5. WTF, Indeed

As we reported earlier this week, Jenelle Evans took legal action against several of her Teen Mom co-stars for reasons that remain unclear.
Evans and her husband, David Eason, had their attorneys send cease and desist letters to a handful of regulars on the MTV reality series, including Kailyn Lowry, Chelsea Houska ... and Jenelle's mother, Barbara Evans.
The letters appear to have backfired as everyone on the cast responded by publicly clapping back at Jenelle, including Babs, who is now armed with evidence that everything in the Easons' relationship is not what it seems.
Buckle up, folks.
The long-standing feud between Jenelle and Barbara is about to go nuclear:
1. Mother vs. Daughter
2. Jenelle Takes a Jab at Babs
3. Join the Club!
4. The Mystery Remains...

It's been nearly three months since, to the Bachelor Nation's collective surprise, Arie Luyendyk Jr. was announced as the next Bachelor. We've had time to get about as comfortable as we'll ever be.
But we weren't quite prepared for this trailer, where contestants are appearing for the first time alongside Arie as they compete for his heart.
As you'll see in the video below, it's ... quite the spectacle.
In case anyone is still in denial, yes, this is really happening.
In just over a month, the next season of The Bachelor begins, and Arie will play the leading man.
No, there is no chance that it's a fake-out and that Arie Luyendyk Jr. will be swapped out by Peter Kraus, why will barge in and sweep these contestants (and the viewers) off of their collective feet.
(For many reasons, though one is that Peter Kraus already has his comeback lined up)
Remember, folks, it's not like they start filming in January. Reality television can surprise you, but it's almost impossible to keep everything a secret when you film it all months in advance.
In fact, we already know Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s final four. (Spoiler warning for that link, obviously)
If you don't want spoilers, though, stick to the official trailers like the one in the video below.
We've already met the full cast of ladies.
Those are a lot of women whom ABC found and convinced to go on camera and pretend that Arie Luyendyk Jr. is the man of their dreams.
Okay, you know what? Maybe we're being a little mean to Arie.
He's a handsome man. You don't have to be the literal most attractive man in the world to be a recognizably handsome dude.
He's a racecar drivers, which must be exciting to some people (especially adrenaline junkies).
He travels a lot, which some people like.
And, for what it's worth, Courtney Robertson says that Arie is "the best" at sex.
While most of the contestants won't get to confirm that for themselves (this isn't Bachelor in Paradise, folks), there's still a lot about Arie to make him desirable to these contestants.
And Arie must be excited about this.
This isn't his first bite at the apple -- he was a major contender on The Bachelorette. And though most of us hadn't really thought of him since, producers decided to give him another shot.
In fact, Arie was so pumped for this role that he broke up with his real-life girlfriend just two days before the official announcement that he was going to be The Bachelor.
That might not be the most romantic move, but it certainly shows drive and determination.
Different contestants are going to be looking for different traits, folks.
In the trailer below, you can see that ABC realized that he's a controversial choice, so they're really doing their best to hype him up.
We see clips of contestants singing his praises as a desirable match.
They're also playing off of his racecar driving in the voiceover, because who can resist a good pun?
This trailer gives us confidence and reminds us that The Bachelor's producers have sold audiences man after man for what feels like a thousand seasons.
They must know what they're doing.

Marvel Cinematic Universe... unite!
The first official trailer for Avengers: Infinity War has been released, giving comic book and movie fans their first look at our favorite superhero squad teaming up to take down Titan Thanos.
Scheduled for a May 4, 2018 release date, Avengers: Infinity War will bring back Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man... Tom Holland as Spider-Man... Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow,...Tom Hiddleston as Loki ... Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk... and Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange.
What will you learn upon viewing the crazy awesome footage below?
1. Scarlet Witch - a member of The Avengers with telepathic and telekinetic powers; and Vision - an entity brought to life with the help of an Infinity Ston - appear to be growing closer.
2. Peter Parker's Spidey senses include the hairs on arm standing up to warn him of a threat hovering above New York.
3. Loki and the Tesseract (which, you'll recall, Loki used to attack Earth to devastating effect in The Avengers) will be reunited.
It is comprised of one of the Infinity Stones that are vital to the upcoming storyline.
4. Thanos, the film's main villain who sort of resembles a thumb, arrives on Earth and has gathered at least two of the Infinity Stones, placing them into his gauntlet.
He'll also get the upper hand, literally, on Iron Man at one point.
5. Some of of the Avengers, including Black Widow and the Hulk, will team up in heroic fashion with Black Panther (Marvel's first African-American superhero lead character) and dozens of warriors.
"Evacuate the city, engage all defenses and get this man a shield," Black Panther says of Captain America at one point.
See for yourself:
6. Thor will meet The Guardians of the Galaxy and ask: Who the hell are you guys?
Check out the trailer now!

First thing this morning, the big news was that Matt Lauer was fired for sexual misconduct. Some were shocked; others were absolutely not surprised.
And then, of course, there was Donald Trump's response -- to use this to try to deflect more attention from himself and his policies onto the people he regards as his enemies. By which we mean, you know, journalists and talk show hosts.
Bewilderingly, Trump decided to bash his former friend, Joe Scarborough, by suggesting that he might be a murderer.
We really wish that we were making this up, folks.
So, Matt Lauer has been fired for assault by NBC.
Interestingly, though Lauer famously softballed Trump in an interview while grilling Hillary Clinton over "transparency issues" regarding her emails in a parallel interview (and thus helped pave the way for Twilight Zone episode that is 2017), Trump's response has been delight.
The orange-in-chief tweeted this:
"Wow, Matt Lauer was just fired from NBC for 'inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace.' But when will the top executives at NBC & Comcast be fired for putting out so much Fake News. Check out Andy Lack's past!"
So, basically, he's happy about anyone being fired from any news network that has even a modicum of journalistic integrity.
He's throwing out his usual "Fake News" jargon, which normally just makes the world roll its eyes because, well, it's the equivalent of a preschooler saying "I know you are but what am I" because they're angry but don't know how to argue.
Trump followed it up with something of a massive escalation, however.
And though he repeats himself a little, this tweet is even worse:
"So now that Matt Lauer is gone when will the Fake News practitioners at NBC be terminating the contract of Phil Griffin? And will they terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the 'unsolved mystery' that took place in Florida years ago? Investigate!"
In addition to being an embarrassing display of insecurities and conduct unbecoming of the Office of the Presidency, that tweet appears to be an accusation of murder.
Because, back in 2001, when Joe Scarborough was still a congressman in Florida, an intern named Lori Klausutis was found dead in his congressional district office.
Specifically, then 28-year-old Klausutis was found behind a desk in that office by two visitors.
Now, not only was there zero evidence that Joe Scarborough was involved in her death, but the autopsy results showed that Klausutis had been feeling unwell before her death and that she also suffered heart problems.
It is believed that those heart troubles caused her to fall and hit her head, with tragic and lethal consequences.
There was zero sign of foul play.
Before anyone suggests that perhaps Joe Scarborough at least had a motive -- maybe he wanted to retain his seat in congress, and she knew something incriminating?
(Or, even more boring, they'd had an affair?)
That fits narratives about politicians to which we're accustomed ... except that Scarborough had already announced his resignation months earlier, expressing a desire to spend more time with his children.
Even if you're 100% down to commit murder, you don't murder someone to save a political career that is already coming to an end.
And, again, there was no sign of foul play.
And Joe Scarborough is several things, but none of them is a criminal mastermind. Or any kind of mastermind.
But this is just one of many examples of Trump having zero idea of what is and is not appropriate, either for a President or for a human being, to say or do.
Trump has gleefully repeated accusations against famous men whom he considers to be his "enemies."
He has also been conspicuously quiet about Roy Moore being accused of molesting young girls. Because, well, Roy Moore is a Republican and likely to support Trump's agenda in Congress.
(Besides, given the accusations about Trump, condemning Roy Moore would come across as hypocritical. Though that's never stopped Trump before)
Trump also seems to be forgetting (weird, since he himself said that he has one of "the great memories of all time") that Fox News had to expel a number of high-profile individuals because they, like so many famous and powerful men, turned out to be sex monsters.
Sexual predation doesn't have a political affiliation, but how people respond when the people they once respected are accused shows a lot about their character.
Another complication to all of this is that Trump was once friends with Joe Scarborough. But he cannot stand criticism of any kind, which is why their relationship has apparently devolved to accusations of murder.
