Kim Kardashian, like many celebrities before her, is getting real. In a new essay on her website, "How I Really Feel About Being Pregnant," she says, "For me, pregnancy is the worst experience of my life!"
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!
One fair reason that pregnancy sucks is all the mindfucking:
I’m not sure why I don’t like the experience like others do. Maybe it’s the swelling, the backaches or just the complete mindfuck of how your body expands and nothing fits. 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.
She also includes some frank talk about the "gross things" related to pregnancy that people usually aren't open about.
Do you know you basically have to wear a diaper for two months afterwards?!
I didn't know that. It's pretty momentous that Kim K., the same woman who has inspired so many women to "train" their waists into getting smushed, is being so honest and forthcoming about a common female experience. If she ever acknowledges her period, we will truly be living in a brave new world.
