Kim Kardashian took to her blog on Monday evening to share with fans about high-risk pregnancy and her anxiety leading up to her upcoming delivery.
The reality star, who is expecting her second child with husband Kanye West on Christmas day, opened up about being scared for her upcoming delivery because of previous problems. “Last pregnancy, I had a condition called preeclampsia, which is a serious condition you can get during pregnancy; often, the only way to get rid of it is to deliver early to protect yourself and the baby,” she wrote.
“Only about 5 percent of woman get this,” she wrote. “Lucky me! It causes your body and face to swell, and that was very uncomfortable for me. I had early-onset preeclampsia and I had to deliver at 34 weeks, almost six weeks early.”
The beauty went on to explain that as previously chronicled on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, her placenta stayed attached inside her uterus when giving birth to North, “which is a condition called placenta accrete.”
Kardashian explained that as she nears the end of her pregnancy, she is suffering with a bit of anxiety. “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. So as time goes on, I am stressing out less and trying to go with the flow.”
The 35-year-old went on to “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!”
