On tonight’s episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, we see Kim Kardashian having issues with her second pregnancy. Throughout the pregnancy Kim was traveling all over the world to satisfy her cravings, but it may have been doing damage to her and the baby. Kim shares with mom Kris Jenner and sister Kourtney, the news from her doctor, saying that:
Well, they saw a little bit more fluid than normal in my placenta which either could mean that I’m having a carbon tolerance or I have diabetes.
Mom Kris then revealed:
I had gestational diabetes with Kylie Jenner. It’s very serious. Your life is at stake.
Kim says the doctor suggests she add more protein into her diet as Kim tries not to stress about the idea of having diabetes. When Kim had her first baby, North, she suffered from complications during pregnancy, along with afterwards. It was very difficult for Kim to get pregnant the second time and has had health issues in that area. In an interview with C Magazine, she explained:
It was over a year of trying, and I had so many complications. I had this condition called placenta accreta. There were a couple of little operations to fix all that, so that created a little hole in my uterus, which I think made it really tough to get pregnant again. It was a long road. 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.
Kim then talked about the potential complications in her second pregnancy, stating that:
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.
During Kim’s first pregnancy, she suffered from preeclampsia, which can be a fatal condition if not treated correctly, where blood pressure is raised and their is protein loss in the mother.
