Kim Kardashian is considering surrogacy for her second baby, citing infertility issues. But fans insist Kim wants to use a surrogate because she doesn’t want to gain pregnancy weight.
Sources said Kardashian is getting fertility treatments, including in-vitro fertilization, but the process has left her feeling unwell. “Kim has been undergoing IVF,” a source told Us. “It’s causing problems with her body.”
Kim’s alleged infertility has been a running storyline on the current season of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” Kardashian, 34, recently claimed she has been unable to get pregnant again despite having sex multiple times a day with husband Kanye West. In 2013, Kim got pregnant shortly after going off birth control.
Kim gave birth to daughter North in June 2013 following a difficult pregnancy punctuated by massive weight gain, pre-eclampsia (dangerously high blood pressure), kidney problems, swollen feet and chronic body pain.
Kardashian’s decision to consider surrogacy came as no surprise to “KUWTK” fans, who claim Kim doesn’t want to get pregnant because she doesn’t want to get fat again.
“We all predicted this the second she began pretending she had sudden fertility issues, as well as the improbable idea that the doctor had left some placenta in her from years before,” one fan wrote online.
Another added: “She’s too vain to gain the weight again. No doctor has ever said she had fertility issues. It was her sister Khloe who was told she had issues, not Kim.”
Still another critic observed: “She got pregnant with North in like three months after being on birth control for years, and now she can’t get pregnant again? Right. We all know the struggles you’re claiming are fake, and soon a child will pop out from a surrogate that’s been carrying your son all along.”
Kim: I Hated Every Second of Pregnancy
Kardashian was mercilessly teased by tabloids over her almost 60-pound weight gain. Some reports claimed the 5-foot-2 Kim had ballooned to almost 200 pounds while pregnant.
Kardashian had a long, difficult delivery with North. After she had her baby, Kim struggled to lose the 56 pounds she gained.
Kardashian eventually managed to lose 56 pounds in six months with rigorous exercise, waist training and a strict low-carb ketogenic-style Atkins diet that limited her daily carb intake to less than 60 grams, Celebrity Health & Fitness reported.
After her post-baby weight loss, Kim revealed in numerous interviews that she hated every second of being pregnant, and said any woman who claims pregnancy is pleasant is lying.
Pregnancy — I wouldn’t really wish that on anyone. Anyone,” Kim said in January 2014. “Pregnancy was not a good experience for me. At all.”
Kardashian said her rough pregnancy was a shock because her mother/manager, Kris Jenner (who has six children) and sister Kourtney both had easy pregnancies and told Kim pregnancy would be an amazing experience.
Kim said her difficult pregnancy was made all the worse because of the cruel fat-shaming she endured on a daily basis from tabloids and blogs.
“Every day I would hear people criticize me, and it would affect me,” said Kardashian. “Little by little it would chip away at my soul. I wanted to tune out the media and my public life and ignore it all.”
Later on, after she lost her baby weight, Kim admitted the fat-shaming inspired her rapid weight loss of 56 pounds in six months. “The haters helped motivate me,” said Kardashian. “Seeing every crazy thing written about me gave me motivation.”
Update: Kim Kardashian is pregnant with her second child.
