A clip from next Sunday's episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians shows that Kim Kardashian West may be considering having a third baby, but this time through a surrogate. In the preview, the 36-year-old tells her mother, Kris Jenner, "I've come to the conclusion that I just want to explore surrogacy."

West didn't have an easy time with pregnancy the first two go-rounds. During the pregnancies for both of her kids with Kanye West (daughter North, 3, and son Saint, 11 months), she suffered from a condition called placenta accretion, where the placenta fails to properly detach from the uterus after birth. This means the doctor is forced to remove it by hand, a risky procedure because there's a chance the mother can hemorrhage, and one West reportedly called, "the most painful experience" of her life. And that was after the procedure in which her not-yet-born son had to be moved from the breech position (meaning he would have been born legs first, which is obviously quite dangerous) before she went into labor, a procedure she called "probably more painful than childbirth."

One konfusing thing about the Kardashians, for those of you who don't watch their TV show, is that there are two different Kardashian timelines in the world—the first is their real, actual lives (or at least what the media shows us of it), and the second is what happens on their show, which airs months after being filmed. Meaning, this conversation happened before the horrific robbery she endured in Paris. Hopefully her experience, which changed a lot of things about her life in general, hasn't affected any plans she may have had to add to her family.
