Kim Kardashian opened up about her pregnancy complications and told us more about her body than any nude pic could ever reveal. She wrote about it in a post on her official blog, where she's been pretty candid in detailing her feelings towards her pregnancy. She discusses the complications she had with North and how that's affecting her fears about her upcoming birth.
While delivering North, she had a condition called "preeclampsia," which meant she had to give birth six weeks early. On top of that, her placenta didn't come out (it usually does so after giving birth). Here is her detailed explanation of what happened:
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.
My doctor had to stick his entire arm in me and detach the placenta with his hand, scraping it away from my uterus with his fingernails. How disgusting and painful!!! My mom was crying; she had never seen anything like this before. My delivery was fairly easy, but then going through that—it was the most painful experience of my life! They gave me a second epidural but we were racing against time, so I just had to deal.
After all of that, I still had a piece of placenta attached inside of me and I had to have surgery to remove it. Then I had another surgery to remove the scar tissue. This was all preventing me from getting pregnant the second time around. I have amazing doctors that helped me through the entire process and I'm so grateful I was able to conceive again!
