“Once you have preeclampsia, you’re at risk of having it again,” her doctor warns her.
According to the American Diabetes Association, some pregnant women develop gestational diabetes, though the condition usually goes away after pregnancy.
Kardashian West and husband Kanye West, 38, tried hard to expand their family for over a year before the couple finally conceived using IVF treatment, but on Kardashian West’s natural cycle, without hormones.
A source close to the star told PEOPLE in June the Wests are expecting a high-risk delivery “but are prepared.”
“I’m gonna keep it real: For me, pregnancy is the worst experience of my life! LOL,” she wrote. “I don’t enjoy one moment of it and I don’t understand people who enjoy it. My mom and Kourtney clearly did! More power to them but I just don’t relate!”
That being said, all the struggles come with a special reward: “Really, it is all SO worth it when you have your precious baby in the end,” Kardashian West wrote.
