Kim talked about how the focus on her weight gain during her pregnancy with North impacted her.
It was the worst. I couldn’t help it, and everyone would say, ‘She can’t stop eating.’ I delivered at 180, and they were like, ‘She’s 210 pounds. She’s getting dumped because she’s too fat’ and all these ridiculous stories.
“It really took a toll after the fact, when I was losing weight. I gained 50 pounds, and it’s tough to get it off. I was dedicated, but also, it changed the way I viewed wanting my picture taken. Before I was always smiling, and so into being out and about. After I had the baby, I was like, these are the same people that made fun of me, and posted the stories that were so awful, calling me fat for something I couldn’t control. I don’t want to smile for them. I don’t want to be out.”
I remember how she virtually disappeared from the public eye right after giving birth to Nori. It was a weird time, remember? We had NO Kim pictures for a couple of months.
Even if I was more confident, I just didn’t feel like being that girl who was going to be smiling for every photo. It changed my mood; it changed who I was; it changed my personality a lot.”
She said she’s feeling more confident, style-wise, with her second pregnancy.
For this pregnancy, I’m definitely more simple. I figured out a formula of what works. And I also feel lucky that as of right now, I don’t feel like I’m gonna get preeclampsia again, which last time [contributed to] not only the weight, but also the swelling that everyone would make fun of, not understanding that I had this condition.”
Kim isn’t sure if baby #2 will be her last child or not. It’s possible she could end up having to undergo a hysterectomy.
[The doctors] think I’ll have placenta accreta [a pregnancy complication] again, so if the placenta grows a little bit deeper than it did last time, then they are prepared to have my uterus removed, which is a little scary for me.”
Oh my goodness. I guess that is scary! Hopefully the doctors will be wrong and this pregnancy will be complication-free. It’s not easy being pregnant!
