Kim Kardashian West is the first to admit she’s not a big fan of being pregnant.
“I hate being pregnant,” she tells PEOPLE exclusively. “I think it’s the worst experience.”
And with good reason. The reality star and entrepreneur has had two high-risk pregnancies: with 3-year-old daughter North, she suffered from preeclampsia (a condition characterized by high blood pressure) and with son Saint, now 6 months, Kardashian West had placenta accreta, in which the placenta attaches too deep in the uterine wall.
During Saint’s dramatic birth, “it took about two hours to get my placenta out,” says Kardashian West. “My cervix was closed and the doctor had to break through my cervix with his hand. They thought they were going to have to remove my uterus. I knew it was a possibility, but [luckily] we worked it out.”

However, “you forget,” says Kardashian West, 35. “After about four months, I was like, I can breathe again. I can maybe have another one.”
The mom of two says she understands the risks, but “I could definitely have one more.”
For now, she’s busy with her “energetic and wild” North and “sweet and calm” Saint. Says Kardashian West: “They look so much alike, but they have totally different personalities. All North wants to do is put on a costume and sing and dance. She steals all my jewelry, she loves clothes and she’s obsessed with makeup. Saint sits and smiles all day long!”
