Throughout her pregnancy, Kim has had pains, discomfort, and a few scares, which are documented on her reality shows. She’s even posted photos on Twitter of her swollen feet. Since the beginning of her pregnancy, her weight and swelling have really escalated, which is a symptom of Preeclampsia. According to the health section of NY Times:
The only way to cure preeclampsia is to deliver the baby. If your baby is developed enough (usually 37 weeks or later), your doctor may want your baby to be delivered so the preeclampsia does not get worse.
