Kim Kardashian has been very open about the struggles she’s faced with her second pregnancy, and while everything’s fine right now, the reality star recently revealed that she’s worried that her second child may be the last she can carry to term herself.


Page Six reports that Kim spoke to C Magazine about giving birth a second time and opened up about the fact that she’s worried whether she can have any more children due to the fact that she suffers from a condition called “placenta accreta,” which has resulted in Kim having to undergo surgeries after giving birth to North and could potentially cause severe blood loss during her second delivery.

With placenta accreta, the placenta or part of the placenta does not completely detach from the uterus after a woman gives birth, potentially causing severe blood loss.

Aside from placenta accreta, Kim was also diagnosed with preeclampsia during her last pregnancy and while she’s putting on a brave face, there’s absolutely no doubt that she’s worried about her health as well as future childbearing prospects.

Will you stop at two kids then?

Well, they think I’ll have placenta accreta again, so if the placenta grows a little bit deeper than it did last time, then they are prepared to have my uterus removed, which is a little scary for me. I think we’re just gonna go day by day, see how overwhelming it is, and see how the delivery goes.

Now that Kim and Kanye have confirmed they’re having a second child, Kim’s said that she might begin fading away from our television screens and spending more time working on the other components of her brand, including her clothing line and retail establishments. She also doesn’t know what the future of Keeping Up With the Kardashians holds or whether the show can sustain another 10 seasons.

I don’t see us filming the show day to day. But you never know—we never thought it would go this long.

I lost my uterus (I like to say “misplaced” b/c it gets good looks from people) a while back, and it’s a sucky thing to go through. Since I’m sure Kim K is scouring the Jez comments for advice, wink, here are some good things to focus on:
1. You’ll never have to buy tampons again, and you can re-purpose your existing supply into craft projects. Tampons hold gold leaf like nobody’s business.

2. If you keep your ovaries, you still get PMS, but it’s weird and out of context. Use this to your advantage.

3. The Ladies-Without-Uteri club is pretty cool, and full of interesting people. Membership is unconditional, and we always have wine. We also provide alibis for situations where some unfortunate fucker says something about “God’s will” or “for the best” and needs re-education.

4. You and your hot man can throw away all the BC and have teenager sex with no consequences.

5. The informed consent vid for a hysterectomy has a group of charming, elderly women in valour pantsuits playing tennis. Valour pantsuits are not actually a side effect, neither is tennis skill; so keep your expectations measured. I do highly recommend recovering in a valour pantsuit, however, alternating with caftans.
