Why does she want to go through with a procedure that would not even guarantee a safe and healthy pregnancy?
Kim already shares three-year-old North and 15-month-old Saint with rapper husband, Kanye West. "It will still be a really high-risk pregnancy, but I would be able to get pregnant", she added.
Kim Kardashian is caught in a fertility catch-22, says Nicole Scott, M.D., an ob-gyn at Indiana University Health who does not treat the reality TV star directly. While conditions like preeclampsia can be monitored, placenta accreta is "dangerous", she says.
More details about Kim's baby no. 3 drama will surely be featured in the succeeding "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" episodes which airs every Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on E!. He said that due to the high risks that a third pregnancy could create, Kim should consider using a surrogate. However, despite her wishes, she was told by doctors that a third pregnancy would be risky for her condition.
Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick welcomed twins in 2009 via surrogate, and the Sex and the City star opened up beforehand about how they chose that route.
According to Kim, she had to deliver nearly six weeks early and her labor needed to be reduced. The star paid tribute to her momager in a photoshoot, and the resemblance between mother and daughter is striking.
Kim Kardashian is not getting into awesome shape and preparing a "bikini body" in preparation for her life after she divorces Kanye West.
She recently chose to go ahead and try to carry the child herself, though, despite the challenges ahead. Kris Jenner then expressed her fear that the surrogate might take the baby from her. Kim assured her that it will never happen and told her what the best thing about surrogacy is. The musician, along with his wife, Chrissy Teigen, has been a close friend to Kim and Kanye for years, clapped back with a rather concise Twitter burn.
