Kim Kardashian would like a sibling for her only child, North West.
She got pregnant with North after months of trying, and now she and husband Kanye West want another baby. However, no luck after a reported nine months of trying to conceive.
TMZ claims (Kris Jenner has admittedly been leaking sympathetic stories to Harvey Levin since the OJ trial), the reason Kim and Kanye are rarely in the same country is doctor’s orders that Kim should travel less. And the reason they’ve looked so solemn together lately is their struggle to get pregnant.
Kim Kardashian is upset for a very good reason … as hard as she’s been trying, she can’t get pregnant. Kim has been very open with friends and family … she and Kanye have been trying to have another baby for the last 9 months but nothing has worked. Kim has been to fertility doctors, but they’ve made it clear … having another baby is a long shot.
Turns out North West was a miracle baby … she had 3 specialists tell her she couldn’t get pregnant before North was conceived.
Kim and Kanye assumed the second baby would be easier since it worked once, but the doctors are telling her that’s not the case. We’re told Kim is trying to reduce her stress and cut down on traveling … per doctor’s advice… We’re told Kanye has been to almost every doctor’s visit … Kim goes once a month. [via TMZ]
Years ago, on Keeping up with the Kardashians, when Khloe and Lamar were together and trying for a baby, the sisters went to see a doctor to find out why neither of them had fallen pregnant. Doctors determined at the time that Khloe was not ovulating and she had to take shots to help regulate her body again. Kim, however, was told that a decade of being on the pill had slowed her egg production slightly but she wasn’t actually infertile. Kim effectively had no substantial fertility issues, but attempted to appear as sympathetic as Khloe.
After that, there were months of tabloid rumours about Kim adopting or using one of her sisters as a surrogate. However, it’s been debatable whether she suffered these issues or exaggerated (or lied) for the television show.
What really did happen, however, is that Kim gained enough weight while pregnant with North that the tabloids took notice and made up stories of their own. She did have a difficult pregnancy and claimed that North was a preemie (although, she and North went into hiding for months so, sadly, the veracity of that claim was questioned too).
Let’s hope this is a temporary setback. Kim does appear to want another baby to join North. Probably another girl as Kris Jenner seems to heavily favour her female relatives over the male ones (judging by the attention she lavishes on North versus little attention paid to Mason Dash and newborn Reign Aston).
