Kim Kardashian Opens Up (Again!) About Her Fertility Struggle
It has been an unusual past few days, during which Kim Kardashian has only been the second most famous member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan. (I'm referring, of course, to last Friday's much-discussed interview in which Bruce Jenner publicly talked about his gender transition.) But Kim nevertheless made some of her own news this morning, when she discussed her ongoing fertility struggles on Today.
She said that she's been TTC baby number two with husband Kanye West for months, but hasn't had success yet. She's 34 now, and said she's been visiting fertility doctors to, in her words, "figure out what's going on" with her body and her chances for another baby.
She told Matt Lauer, "They say if you've been trying [to have a baby] for a year, then you usually need a little bit of help. I had a tough delivery, so I understand what my challenges are," referring to her preeclampsia and the resultant early delivery of daughter North West.
While she tries to conceive, she said that she's "doing everything she can," and seeing "the best doctors," which should come as no surprise.
In the Today interview, she also said that surrogacy and adoption aren't on the table yet as she continues to hope for another pregnancy.
To complete my family, I had hoped for two kids. When I had boy-girl twins, it turned out I got both of those kids at one time! But I can certainly sympathize with any mother who hopes to grow her family and encounters fertility difficulty at any stage in the game. Good luck, Kim!
