Kim Kardashian is never one to shy away from revealing too much. With the current trend of Kardashian-ism to lay yourself bare and demonstrate there is some truth to the facade, Kim opened up to C Magazine about her pregnancy and complications, the truth about Kris Jenner, and why she believes Keeping Up With The Kardashians deserves respect.
In an article titled #Unfiltered, Kim discusses how motherhood made her recognize her career needed to slow down and prioritize. She also describes the challenges she faced getting pregnant a second time around. Kim was diagnosed with “placenta accreta.” A couple “little operations” to repair the condition caused a hole in her uterus, which Kim believes that is what made getting pregnant a second time so difficult.
“It was a long road,” Kim describes. “I would go to the doctor in Beverly Hills every day at five in the morning to get tested to see if I was ovulating. I was trying everything: I did acupuncture and got a nutritionist to eat healthier, thinking that was an issue.”

Sadly for Kim that meant getting pregnant wasn’t all sexytimes with Kanye West. “It takes the fun out of it,” she explains. “I’m like, ‘I’m ovulating, get home now!’ He’d be like, ‘Wait, I’m in the studio.’”
For Kim the complications continue, and may impede her ability to have another child. “Well, they think I’ll have placenta accreta again, so if the placenta grows a little bit deeper than it did last time, then they are prepared to have my uterus removed, which is a little scary for me.” (!!!)
“I think we’re just gonna go day by day, see how overwhelming it is, and see how the delivery goes,” adds Kim. On the positive, Kim probably won’t gain as much weight as she did with North. “I don’t feel like I’m gonna get preeclampsia again, which last time [contributed to] not only the weight, but also the swelling that everyone would make fun of, not understanding that I had this condition.”
That’s just the highlights – there’s more Kim quotes below!
On Her Pregnancy Style, Then & Now:
The first time I was pregnant, Kanye and I were dating and I was just being introduced to the world of fashion. I wanted to work with a bunch of different stylists, and when you work with a new stylist, everyone wants to possess your look. They wanted me in really outrageous things, and really fashion-y things. It probably wasn’t the time to be experimenting. After that, Kanye and I were just like, ‘Let’s do it ourselves.’ It was mainly him figuring it out; what my look was and what I was comfortable in.
So now I’ve had two years to really come into my own and have my own style. For this pregnancy, I’m definitely more simple. I figured out a formula of what works.
On Defining Her Occupation:
I would say “entrepreneur” if I had to say one word. When I’m traveling and they ask what my occupation is I never know what to say—I always switch it. Sometimes I’ll say perfumer, sometimes author. Sometimes I’ll just say [retail] sales.
On Putting KIM First:
I used to do anything and everything. When a brand would come to me and it sounded like a good deal, I would do it. But I see how my husband doesn’t do anything unless he is in control and believes in it—I was doing anything just to do it, and I had to take a step back.
Soon each of the Kardashian sisters will be launching their own websites own personal style and interests. “They’re individual projects,” Kim clarifies. “I don’t really know what they’re doing.” Hers will focus on fashion and makeup, complete with editorials and live-streaming.
On The Future Of KUWTK:
I probably won’t be as much in front of the camera, but a bit more behind the scenes as far as our clothing line and our stores. We have some big ideas and are kind of spacing it out. And I don’t know about in five years, but definitely in 10 years, I don’t see us filming the show day to day. But you never know—we never thought it would go this long.
Well there you have it – Kim is everything. All things. All knowing. All kreating. All powerful. We owe all to her. Thanks for that Kim. And thanks C Magazine for bringing Kim to light.
