Christmas is coming early for Kim Kardashian. A source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star — who is due to give birth to a boy around the December holiday — is now planning to get induced around Thanksgiving.
“Kim’s doctors want to get the baby out early because of her medical history,” the source tells Us.
In 2013, Kardashian, 35, was forced to deliver her daughter, North West, now 2, five weeks early when her blood pressure spiked. This time, an ultrasound showed excess fluid in her placenta, a sign of gestational diabetes.
The reality star admits she’s never felt the proverbial pregnancy glow. As she lamented on her website on Oct. 5, “For me, pregnancy is the worst experience of my life!”
Husband Kanye West has been doing all he can to make her feel otherwise. “He sends flowers,” says a pal of the rapper, 38. “He’ll drop everything to be with her.”
Kardashian, who has gained 52 pounds so far, has been open about her struggles with pregnancy. “I’m so over it … I am beyond over it,” she told Ryan Seacrest in a radio interview on Nov. 13. “I said this last time. I said I am done. Don’t ever make me go through that again. … How miserable it is, swollen feet and heartburn. It is the worst.”
But at the same time, the 5-foot-3 mogul knows she is lucky. “I think sometimes [people] think I am ungrateful for being pregnant,” she added. “It was really hard for me to get pregnant … [but] at the end of the day it doesn’t mean I have to like it.”
