Kim Kardashian Faking Pregnancy Troubles For ‘KUWTK’ Ratings?

Kim Kardashian is no stranger to talking about her pregnancy complications. It is no secret that she struggled during the first time around. In fact, Kim even struggled to get pregnant with North West. But these days, Kim is continuing to tell everyone that she’s currently going through a “high risk” period in her life.

Kim Kardashian has even shared her story on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, but it sounds like her friends and family members are confused. While Kim is sharing her fear of having diabetes, and possibly experiencing what she did with North during delivery, she is telling her close friends that everything is just fine. In fact, her pregnancy is going just as planned. Of course, North West is doing just fine these days, despite the birth complications, and Kanye West has said nothing of this second child.

According to a new Radar Online report, Kim Kardashian is now being accused of possibly making up the drama surrounding this second baby. And there could be a reason: low ratings for Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Apparently, this season had the lowest number in the show’s history, and it wouldn’t be the first time that someone has faked issues for higher reality television ratings.

Kardashian has been very vocal about the preeclampsia she went through with North West. She also struggled with placenta accreta, which means her placenta is grown into the uterine wall. And because Kim experienced this once, she could be at high risk to get it gain. But a source close to the family tells Radar Online that it could just be fakery.

“Kim was just talking with a group of friends about her pregnancy and she said everything is going really well,” the source has revealed, adding, “She didn’t say anything about a crisis pregnancy. Some people think she could be exaggerating the situation to the public for drama.”

Radar Online talked to a doctor about this issue. Jim Betoni, a renowned OB/GYN who specializes in high-risk pregnancies, revealed that Kardashian should be very aware that her issues from North’s delivery could resurface once again.

“Her chances [of placenta accreta] are remarkably increased from her history. Also if she had the pre-eclampsia, she has the risk of reoccurrence,” Betoni explains, adding, “She has risk factors but there are things that are now watched closer. So at least you come in prepared.”

It is quite possible that Kim Kardashian could deliver early, and via a C-section, to prevent damage once again. And Kim recently opened up about this scary baby drama on her personal website, where she explains what she knows.

“Last pregnancy, I had a condition called preeclampsia, which is a serious condition you can get during pregnancy; often, the only way to get rid of it is to deliver early to protect yourself and the baby. Only about 5 percent of woman get this. Lucky me! It causes your body and face to swell, and that was very uncomfortable for me. I had early-onset preeclampsia and I had to deliver at 34 weeks, almost six weeks early,” Kardashian revealed on her own website, adding, “We induced my labor and I had North soon after. Right after delivery, the placenta usually then comes out. Mine did not. My placenta stayed attached inside my uterus, which is a condition called placenta accreta. This is a high-risk condition that happens when the placenta grows too deeply into the uterine wall.”

It sounds like Kim Kardashian’s doctor has informed her well, and has told her what to expect when it comes to her second birth. She is due soon, and could be delivering early like she did with North West.

What do you think of Kim Kardashian possibly faking for reality television? Or do you think she’s merely overreacting in some instances, as her experiences with North West were so severe?
