More of than not, pregnancy is supposed to be a beautiful process for any mother-to-be. Granted it has its ups and downs, but according to most women, there’s nothing like going through pregnancy and carrying your unborn child. However, one woman in particular, Kim Kardashian, was quite vocal on how she really feels about being pregnant. On her website, she announced that being pregnant is an experience she doesn’t like whatsoever. However, she did say that the result – her baby – makes everything worthwhile.
Before you gasp in shock as to how Kim Kardashian can be so harsh, take note that she went through various struggles when she was pregnant with her first child – North West. Following the birth of her daughter, Kim knew she wanted more kids, which is why her husband Kanye West and she were trying for baby number 2. However, again Kim went through many medical difficulties while trying to conceive. Finally, she is pregnant with a baby boy.
The struggles Kim had while trying to conceive was documented on her and her family’s reality TV show – Keeping Up With The Kardashians. For months she visited fertility clinics, underwent tests and studies, and even a surgery on her uterus because the doctors concluded that her placenta was not fully removed from her first pregnancy. This is dangerous to an extent for all women, as in this case it lead to many issues, which thankfully got cleared for the reality star.
Most women think she’s lucky and fortunate to get pregnant twice in spite of all the issues she’s had. Some may even envy her. However, the mother-to-be had other thoughts when it came to carrying a baby, as she said, “I’m gonna keep it real – for me, pregnancy is the worst experience of my life!”
That being said, let’s take a look at some of the complaints Kim has made in regards to pregnancy. Before we get into it, just know that everyone has their own reasons for their troubles, no matter how vain they may seem and Kim did go through medical difficulties.
To start off, she was in a lot of pain sadly because of her swollen pregnant feet. Most women go through this and surely it’s annoying. Kourtney Kardashian, Kim’s big sister has had 3 kids with no problem at all. In fact, she loves being pregnant and would go through it again and again. Kim, on the other hand, couldn’t feel the same way, “I don’t enjoy one moment of it, and I don’t understand people who enjoy it. My mom and Kourtney clearly did! More power to them but I just don’t relate” She then explained how uncomfortable pregnancy makes her feel, “I’m not sure why I don’t like the experience like others do. Maybe it’s the swelling, the backaches or just the complete mindf— of how your body expands and nothing fits.”
We can’t blame her; pregnancy is by no means easy. It’s totally normal to be uncomfortable with the changes that are happening with your body. Surely you can identify with this, “I just always feel like I’m not in my own skin. It’s hard to explain. I don’t feel sexy, either — I feel insecure and most of the time I just feel gross.”
Another common issue with pregnancy is keeping your bodily fluids in control! Kim describes it perfectly, “Do you know you basically have to wear a diaper for two months afterward?!”
On the bright side, there is one positive for her “I will say, as much as I really hate the whole feeling of being pregnant, I enjoy the challenge of getting my body back after it’s all over. I feel so accomplished when I’m back to where I want to be.”And finally she thinks of her child she said, “It’s all SO worth it when you have your precious baby in the end.”
Let us know if you agree or disagree with the discomfort of pregnancy.
