Kim Kardashian reveals scary pregnancy complications
After struggling with her first pregnancy two years ago, Kim Kardashian has taken to her blog to share worries about her health and the upcoming delivery of son.
When Kim became a first-time mum to North, she suffered from complications relating to preeclampsia, a rare high blood pressure disorder, and placenta accreta, a high-risk condition which occurs when the placenta fails to detach itself after the baby's birth. As a result, she had to have her placenta scraped out of her uterus by her doctor, calling the procedure "the most painful experience of my life".
Now, as the reality star prepares to welcome her son on Christmas day, she admitted that she is nervous she will have to go through similar struggles once again, and could have her womb removed completely.
Kim revealed on her website: "With the issues I had last time, my risk of having preeclampsia and placenta acreeta are increased and there's not a whole lot I can do to prevent it, so my anxiety is a little high leading up to my delivery. In a very rare case, I might need a hysterectomy after delivery if my condition is severe enough, but luckily my doctor doesn't think this will happen."
She ended the post with a positive message for expecting mothers saying: "My advice to anyone going through this or anything difficult during pregnancy is that all you can do is be hopeful, get the best information out there and just be prepared, the more information you have, the better you know how to handle it!"
Good luck, Kim!
