Kim Kardashian Ignores Health Warnings; Continues To Gain Weight

April 14, 2013 10:14 AM by Donna W. Martin

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.

    Yall need to leave that girl alone. She is not overweight, SHE IS PREGNANT! She is smaller than I was with my first child at this stage in the pregnancey. Umm…I think she is gonna get bigger by the minute for the next two months, as she should sincde SHE IS PREGNANT! She looks beautiful and yall just want to be mean to her by scrutinizing her every day. Let her enjoy her pregnancy. Enough already!! I am beginning to feel sorry for her. No woman deserves to be treated so harshly in the press for gaining weight when SHE IS PREGNANT!!!

    And another thing, the writer of this article is a female. How would YOU like it if you were subjected to the scrutiny you are giving her. And how do you know she is not paying attention to her doctors, were you there?? Kim is know for taking care her health, I highly doubt she is not following doctors orders because she is know for taking care of herself. I don’t normally post to these things but I feel the girl is being bullied. I don’t know her personally but hate to see people being bullied.

    the point isn’t how big she is, the point is how much weight she has gained. The healthy amount of weight gain for a pregnant woman is 25- 30 lbs and according to this article she has gained 60+ lbs and other articles using the statements of her loved ones states shes actually gained closer to 100 lbs. either way it is way out of control. This article may be a little on the bullying side but other articles are printing facts. She and her baby are at risk of serious consequences and it is absolutely horrible that she simply doesn’t care. If she wants to kill herself fine but she is responsible for the life insider her and she needs to give that baby a chance at a healthy life.

    Kim will do anything for a buck. She is hoping that a diet company will hire her and give her a lucrative deal like Jessica Simpson did. Jessica is a real person…Kim is phony and fake big difference! They (diet companies) can count on being BOYCOTTED if they do hire Kim. It would be in their best interest if they didn’t hire her!

    Kim and all the Kardashians need prayer, peace and a life that offers true love and true happiness that can only be found in Jesus Christ!

    There is a healthy amount to gain during pregnancy it isn’t a free-for-all. She looks ridiculous squeezing into designer brand clothes instead of being comfortable in maternity wear. And she would do anything to get paid.
