Every Time Khloé Kardashian Got Candid About Her Pregnancy
Khloé Kardashian is known to get candid about her life, and her pregnancy has been no different. Ever since she and Tristan Thompson announced they were expecting, Kardashian has been vocal about all the best and most difficult parts of pregnancy.
One thing is for sure: Kardashian can’t wait for the arrival of her baby girl (with an expected due date toward the end of April). Here’s every time she spilled the details about her pregnancy, including her crazy cravings and how Thompson has been by her side through it all.
1. On hiding her baby bump
Despite suspicions, Kardashian managed to hide her pregnancy from us for a while — and even she was shocked. “I can’t even believe I hid my bump for as long as I did, lol!” she spilled. “It took a few styling sessions, serious strategy and a sh*t-ton of courage, but it worked!”
She confessed that her go-to styles have included A-line dresses with a cinched waist and billowy coats.
Once she did start putting her baby bump on display, a fan noticed that her bump was pretty small for how far along she was (about six months). Kardashian didn’t mind sharing on Twitter, “In the mornings my tummy seems smaller and later in the evening it pops out more. So I think.”
Next: She didn’t feel this way during the whole pregnancy.
2. On feeling sexy
Some women are lucky enough to feel sexy during their pregnancies — and Kardashian is one of them. However, she admitted as a guest on Ellen, that wasn’t the case during the first trimester. “At the beginning, the first trimester’s the worst, and no one knows you’re pregnant yet, and you feel the most uncomfortable.”
She added in an explanation to ET, “The first few months is not sexy, because it’s like, you’re just a little chubby. No one will know you’re pregnant, they’re just like, ‘Oh, you should get back in the gym.’ And you just feel the worst. So I think now that I’m showing more I feel sexy.”
Next: Her body has seen lots of changes.
3. On her body’s changes
Every woman’s body changes in some way when they become pregnant. For Kardashian, the most noticeable difference has been in her cellulite. She tweeted, “I now have cellulite on my legs! Cute! Cute!”
She added, “Pregnancy may make cellulite look worse for a while, because the weight that you gain in pregnancy could make it more noticeable. I feel like I’ve always had cellulite but it’s way more prominent at the moment.”
Next: Her pregnancy definitely hasn’t all been easy.
4. On her pregnancy complications
Kardashian shared some complications she experienced early on in the pregnancy. She discovered she had low levels of progesterone, which prompted her to take supplement pills. While these pills were working to compensate for her lack of progesterone, her body definitely felt the effects.
On an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, she expressed, “Literally, I can’t walk. I just feel sick every night. I feel gross.”
“This is one example of why you don’t announce early,” she also noted. “There’s a lot of complications. As soon as I get to my second trimester, I’ll have such relief and that’s what I’m waiting for.”
Next: She received hate for this, but she didn’t care.
5. On her fitness routine
Kardashian has worked hard to get her body into killer shape, and she didn’t let her pregnancy affect her motivation. She continued working on her intense workouts, but she received serious criticism from people who thought she was being careless.
She tweeted a link sharing the positives of exercising while pregnant, and wrote, “For the ones who think they are physicians all of a sudden but MY doctor and I communicate and my workouts are cleared and highly recommended. Thanks kiddos! Don’t make me stop sharing sh*t.”
Next: We definitely don’t blame her for giving in to these.
6. On her cravings
Kardashian planned to keep her diet healthy throughout her pregnancy, but she admitted to giving in to her cravings. “If I’m craving something, I make sure I give it to myself,” she confessed. Those foods have included spaghetti, pancakes, and strawberries with whipped cream.
Her third trimester has brought on even more intense cravings. She spilled, “I’ve been eating like a beast and I don’t like it, LOL. In my second trimester, I was giving in to my cravings in moderation — but now in my third, I just don’t have the self-control I used to have.”
Next: Here’s how she’s gotten through it all.
7. On Thompson’s love and support
Through all the ups and downs that come along pregnancy, Kardashian has expressed just how blessed she feels to have her beau supporting her through it all. She dedicated a large portion of her Instagram pregnancy announcement to Thompson, and it was amazingly sweet:
I still at times can’t believe that our love created life! Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen! Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages! Tristan, most of all, Thank you for making me a MOMMY!!! You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned! I will never forget how wonderful you’ve been to me during this time! Thank you for making me so happy my love!
