Kim Kardashian is pregnant with her third baby and due in January 2018. Only, this pregnancy looks a bit different than her first two. Find out why Kim Kardashian’s third pregnancy has been the hardest on her, ahead.
Due to medical reasons, Kim Kardashian had to turn to surrogacy for baby No. 3
One of the main reasons Kim Kardashian’s third pregnancy is her hardest one yet? She can’t carry her baby. The soon-to-be mother of three suffered from placenta accreta during her first two pregnancies and was advised by her doctor not to carry any more children.
Instead of putting her body through danger, Kardashian opted for surrogacy and is expecting a baby girl in the new year.
She’s disappointed with her surrogate’s birth plan
According to Daily Mail, Kardashian’s surrogate lives in San Diego and is insisting on giving birth closer to her home, instead of Cedars-Sinai in Beverly Hills. Kim Kardashian and her husband, Kanye West, are apparently annoyed with this plan and concerned they will not make it to the hospital in time for their daughter’s birth.
She doesn’t have the control she’d like
In addition to not having a say in her surrogate’s birth plan, she’s feeling a loss of control altogether. “Obviously you pick someone that you completely trust and that you have a good bond and relationship with,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “But, it is still … knowing that I was able to carry my first two babies and not my baby now, it’s hard for me,” she added. “It’s definitely a harder experience than I anticipated just in the control area.”
She hated being pregnant, but would prefer to be
With the medical complications of her first two pregnancies, Kim Kardashian isn’t fond of childbearing. That said, she’d prefer it over surrogacy. “I hated being pregnant,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “I thought this was going to be so easy, but you know, even in how much I hated it, if I could do it myself I would have preferred that,” she added.
She doesn’t feel prepared
In addition, Kim Kardashian feels unprepared for baby. “I think when you are pregnant, by the time you have the baby, you are so prepared and so ready, and now I am just like, ‘Oh my God, I am going to freak out because I’m not ready and I’m not prepared,’ but it’ll just all [fall] into place,” she told Entertainment Tonight.
On top of feeling unprepared, she sometimes forgets that the baby is coming — since she doesn’t have a belly to remind her — and is still trying to process it all.
She’s had to break the baby news to her daughter in an extravagant way
While she may not be the one carrying her baby, that didn’t stop Kim Kardashian from hosting a baby shower for her new baby girl. That said, part of the reason she threw a baby shower was so that her daughter North, 4 could have a better understanding of their what’s coming.
“We had a baby shower over the weekend, and I thought, ‘You know, I really do want to have a baby shower because I want [North] to feel that something’s coming and for her to really understand it’,” she said to Ellen Degeneres on her talkshow.
She’s afraid her son won’t understand
Due to his young age, Kardashian worries that her son Saint, 2 won’t react to the new baby. “I don’t know how [Saint] is going to react because he doesn’t get it yet,” she told Entertainment Tonight.
