“I’m gonna keep it real: For me, pregnancy is the worst experience of my life! LOL,” the mom wrote. “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!”
Kardashian West, who had her son in December 2015, has made a stand against embracing maternity norms — from her wardrobe to her packed social calendar.
“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 mind— of how your body expands and nothing fits,” she shared. 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 didn’t want to “hide anything” from her fans. “But I will say, as much as I really hate the whole feeling of being pregnant, I enjoy the challenge of getting my body back after it’s all over,” she explains. “I feel so accomplished when I’m back to where I want to be.”
Oh, and having a new addition is also a blessing too. “Really, it is all SO worth it when you have your precious baby in the end,” Kardashian West wrote.
