Kim Kardashian and Kanye West went through pure agony to get pregnant again. In fact, it’s been one heck of a struggle since allegedly turning to IVF treatments after being told by doctors they would never be able to conceive again.
Kim Kardashian, 34, and Kanye West, 37, had been trying to add to their nest for months on end, but to no avail — that is, before reportedly turning to in vitro fertilization. However, it was certainly not an easy process physically or emotionally for Kim to become pregnant again. Find out all about Kim’s complications in getting pregnant again — and why this will likely be her last pregnancy.
Kim had her heart set on getting pregnant again, even after her first pregnancy with North resulted in some dangerous complications. The reality star suffered from preeclampsia, a complication where a woman’s blood pressure soars during pregancy, along with placenta accreta, where blood vessels become attached to the uterine wall. However, Kim wanted to do anything in the world to get pregnant again, which reportedly involved having three surgeries to repair her uterus, according to People.
“The inner lining had been so damaged that she was told conceiving on her own wasn’t possible,” a source told the mag. Wow, that sounds awful! Kim reportedly turned to IVF treatments with hormones four months ago and then became pregnant on her natural cycle.
Dr. Sam Najmabadi told HollywoodLife.com that someone can indeed go through IVF several times and then get pregnant naturally. “Yes this is possible that you may need it and then on the second baby it happens naturally. Many times people who are having issues getting pregnant won’t need help on the second pregnancy and will conceive naturally as long as the reason for doing IVF is not blocked tubes and lack of sperm or ovarian function. Most often it is people with endometriosis that have issues and once they have a child the issues from their uterus are cleared up from the pregnancy.”
Since Kim has been pregnant, she’s had horrific morning sickness where sometimes she can “barely get out of bed.” Poor KiKi! Luckily, Kim is able to power through it since she’s beyond “grateful” to have her second child on the way — and we’re beyond happy for her and Kanye! She might even be having twins. Her pregnancy was such a relief after her inability to conceive that it left her crying hysterically at times.
Kim and Kanye are reportedly “prepared” for a high-risk delivery because of past complications. “It’s been a long road, and they are just so thankful to the doctors because they said she would never conceive again,” the source told the mag, adding that this will likely by Kim’s last pregnancy due to the struggles in the past.
