Don’t have that pregnancy glow everyone talks about? Not feeling the heavenly magic of that little gem of a human growing growing inside you? Hating every freaking minute of it? You’re not alone. Kim Kardashian has just came out with her honest, not-so-blissful feelings about having a bun in the oven: “Pregnancy is the worst experience of my life.”
On her website and app, the reality star wrote an entire post on the taboo subject, entitled, “How I Really Feel About Being Pregnant.”
Since you have to pay to read the post, I pulled out some of the salient snippets for you.
“I’m gonna keep it real,” she writes. “For me, pregnancy is the worst experience of my life! LOL.” (This is the perfect example, incidentally, of why “LOL” needs to D.I.E.)
“I don’t enjoy one moment of it, and I don’t understand people who enjoy it,” she continues. “My mom and Kourtney clearly did! More power to them but I just don’t relate!”
“Maybe it’s the swelling, the backaches or just the complete mindf*k of how your body expands and nothing fits,” she suggests. “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.”
“Do you know you basically have to wear a diaper for two months afterwards?!” Wow, two months? Nooo.
Though she loathes pregnancy, Kim does like the challenge of whipping herself back into shape afterwards: “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. I feel so accomplished when I’m back to where I want to be.”
Of course, the actual baby at the end is pretty sweet, too.
“Really, it is all SO worth it when you have your precious baby in the end,” she writes.
It’s always been Kim’s goal to (over)share everything with her fans. And kudos to her for that. And you know, kudos to her for sharing her hatred of pregnancy because I felt a lot of these things when I was pregnant: My first pregnancy was so awful I got pregnant with my second soon after just so I could get it all over with. For me, though, getting my mind back into shape after my babies were born was the biggest challenge. But, that’s another story.
Anyway, I’m sure she’ll help a lot of not-glowy moms-to-be. I kind of, well, totally, love this.
Just a recap: Kim’s preggers with her second child. She and hubby Kanye West also have a two-year-old daughter, North. And they’re expecting a baby boy, possibly named South, or maybe East, or heck could even be West.
