A few months ago, Kim Kardashian was “heartbroken” because it looked like she wouldn’t be able to get pregnant. Now, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star’s baby bump is huge and she seems to be having trouble coming to terms with the “gross things” that are the reality of pregnancy. Gossip site Perez Hilton tweeted a photo of Kim with a speech bubble proclaiming, “This sucks.” That’s a good short version of how Kim says she feels.

Kim posted her pregnancy problems to her website, kimkardashianwest.com, complaining about some of those gross things, including the way her clothes fit. The 34-year-old reality star told fans that she doesn’t “relate” to women who enjoy being pregnant.
“I’m gonna keep it real: For me, pregnancy is the worst experience of my life! LOL! I don’t enjoy one moment of it and I don’t understand people who enjoy it. My mom and Kourtney clearly did! More power to them but I just don’t relate!”
Kim isn’t alone with her attitude. At least one fan on Twitter agrees that loving her babies doesn’t have to mean loving pregnancy.
@KimKardashian so agree with u Kim about pregnancy, i love my babies but worst experience for my body….

Another Twitter user thinks she will probably feel the same as Kim if she ever becomes pregnant herself.

The oldest Kardashian sister went on with a list of complaints that included swelling and backaches, and the “complete mindf***” of the way pregnancy expands her body so that none of those famous Kardashian clothes fit any more.
“I just always feel like I’m not in my own skin. It’s hard to explain. I don’t feel sexy, either — I feel insecure and most of the time I just feel gross.”

Kim was especially concerned about how unprepared she was for pregnancy, despite going through it once before with her daughter, North. She pointed out that people don’t tell women what to expect as their pregnant bodies go through some radical changes. “Do you know you basically have to wear a diaper for two months afterwards?” she asked her fans.
As the Kardashian big sister, known for her sultry beauty in a family of gorgeous women, no one would expect Kim to suffer from self-esteem problems. But pregnancy has made her “insecure” and unsure of herself. In the blog post, Kim shared some of her inner insecurities.
“I don’t feel sexy, either — I feel insecure and most of the time I just feel gross.”
Kim Kardashian feeling insecure and unsexy just because she’s pregnant may cause women on the street to re-think pregnancy.
Kim’s been struggling for awhile with the way her body is changing during pregnancy. Back in September, Entertainment Tonight shared a video of Kim’s swollen feet a few days after she ditched the trademark Kardashian heels for a comfy pair of slippers.
The only positive note in the whole blog seems to be how much Kim admits to looking forward to having her “precious baby in the end.” She also writes enthusiastically about getting her body back in its “usual sexy shape,” and the challenge of accomplishing her goal of “getting back to where I want to be.”
“So for all my complaining, it’s 100 percent worth it and more!!!”
