Why Kim Kardashian Required 3 Surgeries to Get Pregnant
Kim Kardashian is pregnant with baby No. 2, thanks to the help of her fertility doctor.
It was no secret that Kim and Kanye were trying to conceive, and People reports that it finally happened four months ago via in vitro fertilization.
It has been a tough road. Kim suffered from preeclampsia (high blood pressure during pregnancy) when she was carrying North.
She also tried in vitro eight months ago with the help of hormones, but it didn't take. This time around, she was able to get pregnant on her own cycle, with in vitro, without the use of hormones.
A source told People, “Kim also had three surgeries to repair her uterus. The inner lining had been so damaged that she was told conceiving on her own wasn't possible.”
The couple is expecting a high-risk delivery, but they are ready. “They are just so thankful to the doctors because they said she would never conceive again,” the insider said, adding that this will probably be Kim's last pregnancy.
