As we all know, Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, Kim Kardashian, 32, is expecting her first child with boyfriend Kanye West. But is she gaining too much weight? Does she risk health complications because of it? And could there another reason Kim is packing on the pounds? Keep reading for more details.
According to In Touch, Kim had her first pregnancy scare last month when she was thought to be having a miscarriage. Thankfully, it was a false alarm and mother-to-be and baby were fine. However, her doctors ordered bed rest but Kim didn’t listen and hasn’t slowed down at all.
Could Kim’s weight gain be the next thing to give her a health scare? She doesn’t think so. In fact, Kim isn’t concerned in the least about gaining weight during her pregnancy; she’s enjoying her pregnancy and embraces her new curves. She explained in a recent appearance on The Tonight Show, “I have the rest of my life to be skinny and to lose the weight.”
All pregnant women gain weight. But is Kim taking it too far? You be the judge. Some say Kim has already gained 60 or more pounds and is wearing a medical-grade size F bra. And the baby isn’t due until July.
Too much weight gain could cause Kim to be at risk of developing health problems such as, preeclampsia and gestational diabetes. “And there is evidence that [too much weight gain during pregnancy] may increase the baby’s risk for diabetes in the future,” Dr. Eva Pickler, a Tennessee OB-GYN said.
But is Kim gaining weight on purpose? And why would she want to gain a lot of weight? A source close to the reality TV star said she may have a reason for packing on the pounds … so she can sign a multi-million dollar deal with a weight loss company after the baby is born.
But would Kim really put her health and the health of her unborn baby at risk for money? And has Kim really gained 60 or more pounds? Keep in mind that maternity clothes are made to fit loose. Some outfits will make a pregnant woman look smaller while others will make her look larger. One minute Kim is wearing something loose and flowing and the next she’s wearing something more formfitting like the dress she’s wearing in the photo above.
Tell us what you think. Does it look, to you, as if Kim has gained 60+ pounds? Or is everybody just overreacting and picking on her? And do you think Kim is deliberately gaining weight so she can get a deal with a weight loss company after she has the baby? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear it so sound off in the comments and let us know.
