Kim Kardashian West: 'Pregnancy Is the Worst Experience of My Life'
Don’t expect Kim Kardashian West to espouse the miracles of childbirth.
“I’m gonna keep it real: For me, pregnancy is the worst experience of my life! LOL,” the 34-year-old mom-to-be writes.
Kardashian West, who’s due with a son in December, has already made a stand against embracing maternity norms — from her wardrobe to her packed social calendar.
“I’m not sure why I don’t like the experience like others do. Maybe it’s the swelling, the backaches or just the complete mindf— of how your body expands and nothing fits,” she shares.
“I just always feel like I’m not in my own skin. It’s hard to explain. I don’t feel sexy, either — I feel insecure and most of the time I just feel gross.”
The expectant star says she felt like people didn’t divulge the “gross things” that happen when you’re expecting a child. “Do you know you basically have to wear a diaper for two months afterwards?!” she adds.
Kardashian West wanted to share her feelings as to not “hide anything” from her fans.
“But I will say, as much as I really hate the whole feeling of being pregnant, I enjoy the challenge of getting my body back after it’s all over,” she explains. “I feel so accomplished when I’m back to where I want to be.”
Oh, and having a new addition is also a perk too.
“Really, it is all SO worth it when you have your precious baby in the end,” Kardashian West writes.
