The struggle has been real.

Kim Kardashian West admits that she is not quite ready to take doctors’s advice when it comes to having another child.

“They have recommended to me to get a surrogate, and I would like to hold out a little bit longer, and still try,” Kardashian West told Matt Lauer on the Today show Monday.

She adds, “I still have hope, so I’m just going to keep on trying.”

It’s been no secret that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and husband Kanye West have been attempting to give their daughter, North, a little bother or sister.

“More kids can’t come soon enough,” the reality star told PEOPLE in January. “We’ve really been trying for another kid.”

In fact, according to Kardashian West, 34, they’ve been trying “500 times a day” to get pregnant.

However, it hasn’t been an easy task for the duo. “They say if you’ve been trying [to have a baby] for a year, then you usually need a little bit of help,” Kardashian West has said. “I had a tough delivery, so I understand what my challenges are.”

Though Kardashian West admits that the topic of adoption hasn’t been brought up, it’s not completely off the table. “Never say never,” she tells Lauer.

Despite the frustrations, the proud mom is not forgetting to count her current blessings every day. “I think you get over it to the point where I’m so blessed that I have one and I don’t want to take my focus off of her so much,” she explains.

With North’s second birthday around the corner — she turns 2 in June — the fashionista admits that her hubby is becoming a bit more strict when it comes to their baby girl’s safety.
