I’ve never been a huge fan of the Kardashians. I don’t have anything against the high profile reality TV family, I think I just missed the boat and now its too latet to care. But when Kim Kardashian came out to say that pregnancy wsa the worst experience of her life - I took notice.
Here was a woman willing to voice what many people feel, but too scared to say. In that way she is brave. Kim was slammed for her comments, as critics told her she should be greatful for the gift of pregnancy, that there are other bigger problems to worry about, they told her she was being a spoilt rich girl - But I disagreed. I thought what she said was wonderful.
“I’m gonna keep it real: For me, pregnancy is the worst experience of my life! LOL! 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!”
Kim is not saying that she wishes her baby would die! She is just not that into the experience of pregnancy. Kim claimed she did not feel like she was in her own skin. And everyone kind of told her to get the hell over it - she should just shut up and be happy she’s pregnant.
During her first pregnancy, Kim suffered from pre-eclampsia, with her daughter delivered early due to pregnancy and baby distress. No wonder Kim is having a bad time being pregnant. Imagine all that fear and worry about what could happen.
the problem here is that people confuse enjoyment with gratefulness. She isn’t saying she wishes her baby is dead - only that she is haveing a bad time - which she has every right to do.
I’m glad to hear that not everyone has the same experience of pregnancy. It is a myth and a damaging one at that, to assume that every women loves to be pregnant. It creates the image that if you are not enjoying your pregnancy you will be a bad mother, or are a terrible person. Not true. We are all different and all deserve to voice our different experiences.
