Celebrities who did not enjoy being pregnant
Kim Kardashian West once said that pregnancy was the worst experience of her life. The mom of three (almost four) kids, wrote this: “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!”
When I read that, I must admit to thinking that the reality star was just being silly and ungrateful. There are so many women who can’t have children who’d give anything to experience pregnancy, even if it meant being uncomfortable for nine months. But, now that I am currently a mere weeks away from having my second child, I totally get what Kim meant. Yes, I am grateful but that does not take away the fact that this pregnancy has been completely different to my first. The exhaustion has been next level, I’ve gained more weight than I expected to, my already large nose seems larger, I have almost zero bladder control or patience with my husband and toddler. And, for me that old wives’ tale about little girls “robbing you of your beauty” has proven true. I was certainly no beauty queen before but at the moment, if you painted me green, I could easily pass as Shrek’s beloved Fiona!
