We have to admit, we were a little concerned last week when we spotted Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi sporting some vertiginous platform wedges while filming Season 6 of "Jersey Shore."

The reality TV starlet, who is expecting her first child with fiance Jionni LaValle, appeared to have lost her balance and almost took a tumble due to the dangerously high heels.

Fortunately, new photos of Snooki on the "Jersey Shore" set Tuesday reveal the expectant guidette wearing slouchy, flat boots -- a much more sensible choice of footwear, if you ask us. While it was only a month ago that the pint-size star jokingly tweeted a photo of a faux baby bump, she's now showing the real thing beneath her flowy babydoll top.

In a recent interview with V magazine, Snooki discussed how motherhood will change viewers' perception of her. "I can't wait to meet my kid!" she said. "Everyone will be surprised to see a different side of me. I'm loving, caring, sensitive, protective and very maternal, no matter what people might think."
