Kim Kardashian Fears Birth Problems May Lead To Hysterectomy
Kim Kardashian fears she may need a hysterectomy if the upcoming delivery of her son is anything like the nightmare birth of her first child.
The reality TV star is expecting a little brother for two-year-old North, her daughter with husband Kanye West, and as she nears her due date, she has taken to her blog to share her worries about her health.
Now, as she prepares to welcome her son on Christmas Day, Kardashian admits she is nervous she will have to go through similar struggles once again, and could have her womb removed completely.
“With the issues I had last time, my risk of having preeclampsia and placenta acreeta [sic] are increased and there’s not a whole lot I can do to prevent it, so my anxiety is a little high leading up to my delivery,” Kardashian revealed in a new blog post.
“In a very rare case, I might need a hysterectomy after delivery if my condition is severe enough, but luckily my doctor doesn’t think this will happen.”
The 35-year-old is trying to stay “positive,” and she has shared a few words of advice for other expectant moms.
“My advice to anyone going through this or anything difficult during pregnancy is that all you can do is be hopeful, get the best information out there and just be prepared,” she wrote. “The more information you have, the better you know how to handle it!”
Kardashian has made it clear she is not a fan of pregnancy and she recently had to defend herself after complaints about her aching body prompted a slew of criticism online.
“I just don’t think pregnancy and me really agree with each other,” she told E! Online. “I’m really not complaining, I’m just being honest… I hate it. You know, pregnancy is not for me… You know I’ve heard stories forever about how amazing pregnancy is from my mom and (sister) Kourtney, and that’s just not the case for me and I’m not going to sit here and lie and act like it’s the most blissful experience. It’s awful.”
