Kim Kardashian has opened up about her fears ahead of giving birth to her son next month, in what could potentially be another traumatic delivery for her.

The 35 year old reality star, who is expecting her second baby with her husband Kanye West in December, wrote a blog post on her own website and app on Monday (November 16th) to detail the painful experiences she went through after delivering her daughter North two years ago.

Kim is trying to stay “hopeful” ahead of the due date, but is afraid that she may once again suffer from pre-eclampsia complications as she did the first time around. She explained that, while a woman’s placenta is delivered after the baby, hers was not, meaning that a doctor had to remove it by hand after her daughter’s birth, describing that as the “most painful experience of my life”.

“They gave me a second epidural but we were racing against time, so I just had to deal,” she revealed alarmingly. This isn’t the only health concern that she has encountered this time around, as she recently said doctors “saw more fluid than normal in my placenta, which could mean I have diabetes.”

“With the issues I had last time, my risk of having pre-eclampsia and placenta acreeta are increased and there’s not a whole lot I can do to prevent it, so my anxiety is a little high leading up to my delivery,” she said back on her blog post.

Kardashian, who only a few days ago told E! News about how much she really doesn’t like being pregnant, has nevertheless been open about her progress this year.

She also revealed in the new post that, in extreme circumstances, she might even require a hysterectomy after her son is born. “In a very rare case, I might need a hysterectomy after delivery if my condition is severe enough, but luckily my doctor doesn’t think this will happen,” she wrote.
