Kim Kardashian says she’s gained 52 pounds so far during this pregnancy


I have very clear memories of Kim Kardashian’s first pregnancy and how uncomfortable she was and how uncomfortable she looked for months and months. During that pregnancy, Kim would often try to update her fans about how much weight she had gained, and numbers often seemed… low-balled, let’s say. We found out later that she had preeclampsia and that some of the “weight” we saw was just swelling and water retention. During this pregnancy, Kim has seemed to be doing better – she’s not flying as much, she’s got a better fashion strategy and she’s maybe taking better care of herself. So do you believe this?

I think what throws people off about putting a number on Kim’s pregnancy weight gain is that people don’t realize how short she is. She’s REALLY short. So, 52 pounds would conceivably look like this on Kim. Still, it feels like she’s gained more, right? I’m not saying she’s lying, I just wonder when she started “counting,” you know? As Page Six points out, this is roughly the same amount Kim said she gained during her first pregnancy. And Kim still has more than a month to go! No matter what goes down with the birth (Kim might need a hysterectomy), I’m pretty sure that this kid will be her last.

These photos are of Kim out in LA with Jonathan Cheban on Monday. She needs to stop with the chokers, they are not flattering at all.

    52 pounds sounds about right to me. She’s very short.

    • LMAO says:

      In each ass cheek maybe..

    • ekaterina says:

      With is up with those coats. She has been wearing them Daly for the last several months. She admitted its to hide her ” fat arms butt” if she did not have fillers in that ass ,it wouldn’t look bad. But its reached the point of ridiculousness, a site has a montage of all the trench coats, it is hilarious

      • snowflake says:

        I know, it looks so stupid

      • Caz says:

        Someone happy with how they look would not wear those clothes. She is not happy at all. She is trying to hide her fatness. No I’m not talking about the baby bump itself.

        She will disappear for weight loss surgery again after the birth. Yawn.

      • parissucksliterally says:

        And the CHOKERS! The chokers look so awful on her!

    • Girlinbayou says:

      I concur. Looks about right to me. I was 122 when I got pregnant this last time and day of delivery I was 172 on the nose. So 50lbs. I’m also 5’2 with an hourglass shape as well.

    • Girlinbayou says:

      And I might add, it takes balls for a woman to say how much she has gained. Especially a woman so criticized about her body. Not to mention the fact that she is basically admitting the fact that she has well exceeded the AMA recommended weight gain for a woman of her stature by almost 20lbs.

      • byland says:

        I agree. Weight is such a shaming hot-button in our society. Never thought I’d see the day I admired KK for something.

        Myself, I’m 5’1″ tall and eight months along with twins so I’d say I have a pretty good base for comparison on how much she might have gained at this point. I think 52 sounds about right, honestly.

        I’m kind of in awe that she’s still wearing heels as often as she is (not to mention the horribly uncomfortable looking clothing) because I’ve yet to hit 30 pounds – though it’s coming! – and I’d sooner voluntarily ask Kanye West to explain to me, in depth, his artistic journey and ask questions about his genius.

        So, really, maybe Kim Kardashian is a braver woman than I in more ways than I’d previously imagined. Yeah . . . no. Forget I said that.

      • Pandy says:

        You’re giving her too much credit. This is all a ploy to shill corsets, or a meal plan, or a trainer or all of the above for her miraculous weight loss.

      • byland says:

        @Pandy, you’re probably right. I still think the figure is somewhat accurate, if a bit low, but that sounds more likely. I vote magazine weight loss cover shoot. Her mother’s daughter, through and through, this one.

    • Yoohoo says:

      I’m 5’1″ and I gained 30 lbs exactly with twins. I didn’t try to not gain weight. I never exercised once. The only thing I didn’t do was use pregnancy as an excuse to eat all I wanted. I was back to prepregnancy weight 2 weeks later. I started at 120lbs.

      • byland says:

        @Yoohoo I posted right above you and then saw your comment. Pregnancy twinsies, as a rather annoying mother of one of my daughter’s friends might say. (We’re due within weeks of each other. It’s been . . . trying, to say the least.)

      • peanut says:


      • byland says:

        Or truth. For me, at least. I can’t say the same for sure with YooHoo. I certainly didn’t loose the baby weight quite that fast, that’s for sure. For me, the reality is that I really didn’t treat pregnancy as a excuse to eat anything I wanted. I also have to add in the fact that I also had hyperemesis gravidarum with one pregnancy and am grieving the loss of my father with this one. There are extenuating factors with any pregnancy – with any situation.

        In other news, I love that Community leached into pop culture the way it did. The first three seasons were so good, even if they kept yanking all of us Jeff/Annie shippers around.

      • tealily says:

        That sounds awesome for you, but please try to remember that every body and every pregnancy is different. #YourMileageMayVary

      • Elisa the I. says:

        hmmm, several of my friends and family members who have kids were the same. The breast-feeding and stress with the new-born made them loose the baby-weight extremely fast. Both my sisters and one of my best friends were skinnier than before getting pregnant one month after giving birth. My friend also lost weight during the first months of her pregnancy because she was sick as as dog all the time.
        So i totally believe Yoohoo.

      • Tatiana says:

        I’m 5’2″ and 110lbs & gained 35lbs during my 1st pregnancy & 44lbs during my 2nd pregnancy. I was advised to gain between 25 – 35lbs & told that it takes about 25lbs to grow a healthy baby & anything over that amount I’d have to lose myself through diet & exercise. I was advised to gain 3-5 lbs the 1st trimester & about 1 lb a week for the remainder of my pregnancy.

        Being short, I showed very quickly. Being thin & muscular I gained weight in the earlier part of my pregnancies & didn’t gain more than a few lbs the last two months. Oddly, I had a harder time losing the last 10lbs of my 1st pregnancy than my 2nd where I gained more weight. After having a difficult delivery the 1st time, I worked out extensively throughout my 2nd pregnancy which I believe made my labor & weight loss quicker.

        Most women gain more than the recommended guidelines, but everyone is different. While I feel bad for Kim K., she’s the one who’s created a life in the constant public eye. When you depend on the paparazzi for your livelihood you have to accept the bad with the good & opinions by everyone. Being short she doesn’t do pregnancy well & her constant adherence to spandex & tight, ill fitting clothes & duster jackets in a palette of black, white & beige is unflattering & poor fashion sense. She looks uncomfortable, unhappy & dangerously puffy. During her last pregnancy, her feet were so dangerously swollen I was shocked to see her walking around wearing heels & posting photos on Instagram. I’m no medical authority, but those photos showed classic symptoms of Preenclampsia/Toxemia (which she had) and should have been cause for concern.

        I presume after Kim K. delivers she’ll go into hiding & have a crash course of diet & plastic surgery to hasten her weight loss. While I don’t know KK, I hope her health & the health of her unborn child trump her need to be a constant sex symbol.

      • PoliteTeaSipper says:

        Prepare yourself for the jealous snarking “well everyone else isn’t like you” posts 🙂

    • Heather says:

      Sounds right. Pregnancy weight is alot of bloat and water so it looks bigger than gaining 52 lbs of fat, especially on a short woman.

      But yeah, she looks like she’s struggling to walk in just about every photo. Chokers, ridiculous shoes and all kinds of skin tight bondage wear with a man’s coat draped over it doesn’t help the look of total discomfort.

  2. Jan says:

    Besides those sausage-inducing looking shoes, I don’t hate the look. She looks pretty nice actually and I love that braid

    That being said, 52 pounds? Yikes. You’re supposed to gain 1 pound per week of pregnancy. I hope it’s mostly water weight!

    • Crocuta says:

      Looking at her feet, I’d say water is definitely a part of it.

    • Esmom says:

      52 pounds thus far seems a little out of control. Pregnancy shouldn’t give you license to binge. I ate a ton while pregnant and also worked out as much as I could and gained 28 pounds total with each of my pregnancies. I can’t even imagine.

      • mp says:

        Um esmom I’m glad you gained only the recommended amount but some of us aren’t that lucky. I don’t love KK either but 52 lbs seems totally normal and not like she’s bingeing.

      • Chelsey says:

        Lol, ok Giselle!

      • PinaColada says:

        Same, esmom. I continued to exercise 3x/week and I ate until I was full every time per the ob’s recommendations- never deprived but I ate really healthy. I gained 18lb and it was gone pretty much immediately. Oh and both babies- good size and healthy.

      • Dani says:

        How wonderful for you! But everyone gains differently. I gained 63lbs and went to 40 weeks. No shame.

      • Mle428 says:

        This judgy, “I only gained x amount while I was pregnant,” makes me crazy. I’m 20 pounds up, halfway through my pregnancy. I don’t eat like a horse, but I got put on bed rest for a week and then 8 weeks of activity restrictions. I just started hiking again last week with the doctor’s ok. I went from being very fit to this big, curvy, booty and boobs.

        Kim and I are the same age, and are both high risk pregnancies. I’m sure she has had restrictions placed on her. There are plenty of women who would love to workout in full beast mode through their pregnancies, but are medically unable to do so. I had to put my baby’s health over my own vanity.

        I am 5’7″ and am carrying just like Kim. It’s miserable (although the hubs loves my new boobs and butt). Thankfully I’ll get to have an adorable baby after all of this is over.

      • Girlinbayou says:

        Good for you Esmom. Hormones can play a big role in how much weight you gain and where, so not everyone will gain the same and regardless of diet and exercise it is still possible to put on and KEEP the weight irrespective of what measures you take to prevent it. For example; In times of stress a mother to be’s body may release stress related hormones which can cause the body to conserve calories/fat in order to prepare for nourishing the baby post birth. This is nature’s way of ensuring that the mother has adequate fat supplies needed to breastfeed.

        So in her defense, it’s not always something that can be controlled.

      • noway says:

        First it does take balls to say the weight gain number, but with six weeks to go that is a bit high, not being judgey either. I hope for her and the baby they don’t have any issues, but I am sure we will hear it all play out if they do.

        I really wish people would realize that not all weight gain either pregnant or not is because someone doesn’t have the will power and just chows down. Until we change our mind about weight being just a will power issue I don’t think we will fix the society’s obese issue. Look we even judge pregnant women, when odds are excessive weight gain is a medical issue, especially with preeclampsia on the first baby.

      • Esmom says:

        Oh geez I was reading/typing fast and realize I sounded really insensitive. I get that everyone gains weight differently during pregnancy. KK’s number just struck me as excessive but I was assuming a healthy pregnancy. I realize there are medical exceptions. I will say I know plenty of women who used pregnancy as an excuse to pig out, which is where I was going with my comment. Apologies.

      • Kitten says:

        LOL Esmom–here’s a towel for that sh*t you stepped in 😉
        FWIW I didn’t see anything wrong with what you wrote. It didn’t sound judgey, just like you were sharing your experience–but then again, I’ve never been pregnant.

        It all looks SO freakin’ uncomfortable to me…I look at women who say that they love being pregnant and wonder how it’s possible that we share the same chromosomal makeup…

      • Jen43 says:

        I don’t know why she is talking about her weight gain. I agree with you, though. Her gain is excessive unless its half water.

      • Cee says:

        My mum gained 7 kilograms (15 pounds?) while pregnant with me (I was a premmie, though. Born almost 8 months). She says that she walked out of the hospital with only 2 kilos overweight and she’s 1.57 m short lol Granted, she ate healthily because it was a high risk pregnancy. But it can be done. I doubt I’ll have her self-discipline when my time comes, though.

      • Bridget says:

        Esmom I know you weren’t trying to be insensitive 🙂

        And just keep in mind, there are a lot of factors that go into how much weight a woman may or may not gain during pregnancy, even if she tries to watch what she eats and exercises regularly. Not everyone that gains ‘pigs out’, but even then as long as it’s not associated with any health risk it’s kind of the mom’s own business (unless she signs a contract with weight watchers, and then that’s just kind of icky).

    • Denisemich says:

      Some of that weight has got to be the milk. Her breasts are HUGE.

      If you have to exercise like crazy to maintain your weight pre pregnancy, you are going to gain 40+ during pregnancy.

      At the end of the day all that matters is a healthy baby and mom.

    • ashley says:

      I love the braid too1

  3. AnnieRose says:

    I’m the same height as Kim, and I think she is telling the truth. And I can’t believe I just typed “Kim” and “telling the truth” in the same sentence. But I can attest that, at this height, 10 pounds looks like 20, etc.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I feel for that. One of my best friends is very petite, and she works harder than anyone I know on her weight. She looks good, but it’s a constant struggle. I struggle, too, but at 5’6″, 5 pounds isn’t nearly as noticeable as it is on 5’1″.

      • Zip says:

        I’m 4’10 and after I lost 10 pounds (which takes so much work and I would basically have to starve myself, it’s crazy) people were like “woah! You really lost a lot of weight.” and I was at a normal BMI range the whole time.

      • Cee says:

        I’m 1.60 m and 5 kilos look like 10. My sister, on the other hand, at 1.64 can put on 10 kilos and it makes almost no difference on her body.

    • LadyMTL says:

      LOL…I was going to say the same thing. A Kardashian and the truth, in the same room? But yeah, I can see how it would be feasible just because of her height.

    • Elo says:

      I agree, I’m Kim’s height too. This is definitely no more that 52 lbs. My first thought was she looks about 175, which would put this gain just as she says it is. Poor girl, I put on 30lbs, harder to lose too when you are short.

    • noway says:

      Her outfits also aren’t helping her look smaller either, during or before her pregnancy. Even the jewelry looks like it is strangling her. Although, I agree this pregnancy is a ton better than the last clothes wise.

  4. Tate says:

    The choker and the shoes need to go.

    I believe the 52 pounds. She is a very short person.

    • capepopsie says:

      The outfit looks comfy, though.

      • Chloe says:

        I don’t think she ever looks comfy!! I’m always thinking that when I see pictures of her lately: “Girl, you’re pregnant, be comfortable for goodness’ sake!” She looks like a sausage about to burst its casing, and it’s just the skin tight clothes, not her weight so much. I like the braid here, and that’s about it.

  5. Melangie says:

    Yikes! My feet hurt for her. (what can I say,, they’re empathetic)

  6. OSTONE says:

    She may lie about her numbers, and while I strongly -correction- super strongly dislike her and her family, girlfriend made sure to let us know it’s not a pillow 👀

  7. Mel M says:

    Why does she continue to wear those terrible shoes! She wore them during her first pregnancy as well and her feet just look like they are oozing out of every crevice.

  8. swack says:

    I believe the 52 pounds and not anything more than that was gained but cannot perceive how she gained that much if this is what she says she eats ever day (this is from the article yesterday).

    “Every morning I have an egg white, avocado and a piece of wheat toast. And for lunch I love a salad. And then dinner its usually a risotto or a pasta.”

    I don’t care how much a woman gains, as long it is not detrimental to her health or the babies health. But instead of trying to make yourself look good, at least be real about what you have been eating. It’s okay to have cravings. I had a well known custard place within a mile of where I lived with my first pregnancy. We would walk there to get a treat and I justified that I could get whatever I wanted because I walked there and back. Not really a good justification!

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Good point. My only thought is water weight?

      • mp says:

        I knew a lady who was low-carb and then when she started eating carbs again she gained back A LOT of water during her pregnancy. So water weight is my guess too. (puffy feet!)

      • klein says:

        Water weight can be astonishing during pregnancy and it’s different for everyone and can vary from baby to baby. When I had my first, they monitored my water ‘output’ (to put it politely) for 48 hours and there was kilos of water. I thought I’d done OK but not great with not gaining too much weight during the pregnancy but once the water had vanished, I was pretty much the same weight as before, almost immediately. Most of the extra weight was water I think. It was sooo weird

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        I had anemia after surgery once, and a symptom is swelling in your legs. Out of curiosity, I weighed myself and I weighed 20 pounds more than I did a week later. Creepy.

    • Paleokifaru says:

      Well she’s not giving portions for the lunch and dinner and if she’s cut out a lot of work outs or is really slashing the intensity…

    • Sea Dragon says:

      She forgot to mention what she eats in between meals.

    • noway says:

      I had preeclampsia with my child and the swollen feet are a sign of it. Not every pregnant woman with swollen feet get this, but it is usually a sign if you are going to get preeclampsia you will swell more than others. I am sure her medical team are monitoring her as she had it before, and I wouldn’t be surprised if this child is born early.

  9. jwoolman says:

    I believe that’s a possible number, although since it’s Kim- she is probably lying about something… 🙂 It does look as though she’s trying to minimize real weight gain this time, but her genetics and artificial fat cell distribution are working against her. Her feet look quite swollen, so she’s holding onto a lot of water in her tissues, as well as dealing with all the fluids surrounding the heir apparent. Water is really heavy, the edema alone could easily account for ten pounds or more. Anyway, she could have that weight gain pretty much from the combination of baby plus fluids in the womb and in swollen tissue, so she may not have added too much extra fat.

  10. HappyMom says:

    No way. She is short, and small weight gains show up more on her. I would guess 30-35.

  11. Melca_Blue says:

    If she just let her body be in natural form, no fake ass, i doubt she would have been as big in her pregnancies. But because of the fake ass and fake boobs, she looks huge, that’s why she’s so uncomfortable. She shared a photo on instagram in her skinny days before her butt augmentation, she was so tiny.

  12. Regina Phelange says:

    Her body looks great. Normal preggo. It’s her clothes that suck.

  13. Kelly says:

    No way. I’m calling foul on this as well. 52 pounds (sorry auto-correct made it plunks – kind of like it Kardashian plunks, anyhoo), no. She is more like 35-40 lbs which is still a lot.

    I think she’s saying it’s more, one, sympathy vote, and, two, a reason why it’s going to take her so long to lose it.

    This is mean of me, but if it were anyone but Kim K, I would feel bad. Okay, so I do feel a little bad for her, but I just wish she wasn’t so stupid about her pregnancy. Among other things.

  14. Lilacflowers says:

    Take those shoes off! In addition to the harm she is doing to her feet, she is also damaging her knees, hips, and back. She’s off-balance due to the baby but adding those shoes into the mix increases the risk of a fall

  15. LonnieTinks says:

    I love this site, I have read it everyday for years, but this is just too much.
    She is pregnant, her weight is not something that should be discussed like this. I don’t care if she said she gained 2 ounces or 200 pounds, that kind of pregnant body shaming is sleezy.
    Leave it alone, leave all pregnant bodies alone.

    • Astrid says:

      It’s fair game when Kim tweets about it herself

    • aenflex says:

      What do you think if we just body-shamed her for the plastic parts?
      She publicizes EVERYTHING. This ain’t nefarious speculation.

    • snowflake says:

      Who’s shaming? No one called her a fatass. Were just saying whether we think she gained 52 pounds. How is that shaming?

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      She brought it up, though.

    • Wellsie says:

      Agree, Lonnie. Sick of the preggo-body/clothing judgments. Even if she’s brought it up herself.

      In particular I find fascinating comments like, “I can’t believe she is gaining so much. I gained 4 pounds when I was pregnant! Anything more is just ridiculous!” It’s totally humblebragging, as someone said above. If you’re going to do it at least don’t make it so transparent.

      There are sooooo many other things Kim can justifiably be mocked, judged, etc. for (saying dumb stuff, for instance, have at ‘er). The pregnancy stuff I just don’t get.

      Obvs, she is trying lay the ground work for a “got my body back” blitz down the line. Why fall for it?

    • WinnieCoopersMom says:

      She wants us to notice she said it and discuss it amongst ourselves. So that when she has a cover saying she lost 75 lbs, we will again notice she said it and discuss it amongst ourselves.

  16. Rougelatete says:

    I’m the same height as Kim and also pregnant, due within a couple days of her EDD. She has not gained 52lbs. No way. More like 35lbs, give or take 5lbs. Question is: why would she lie about it?

  17. mommak918 says:

    I believe her. I am shortish. 5’3″-5’4″ or so.
    I worked out and ate right and my first pregnancy I had gestational diabetes, gained nearly 65lbs. And was also on bedrest…so weight and swelling added to it.

    I started my pregnancy in a healthy weight. I was fit and thin.
    2nd pregnancy, worked harder to avoid fruit (which is why I got gestational diabetes the first go, because I craved it.) And I gained 55lbs. I was even running and lifting.

    I looked like a whale. I am back to pre pregnancy weight. But for us shorter gals, we look like a big swollen balls when pregnant.

    I hate when people say, you shouldn’t gain more than 25lbs. I definitely worked hard to not gain too much and still did.

  18. QQ says:

    Put a BOLO for her Neck… Stop the chokers Lady, this ain’t helping an already Bad situation

  19. Jenni says:

    She loves “fat recycling” so… she should be happy about that weight gain. Nothing is going to waste.

  20. Bucketbot13 says:

    Goodness! Kanye got his pet Kimmy to wear an actual dog collar. Ugh!

  21. Maum says:

    Did you say better fashion strategy???????

  22. Mar says:

    Everyone is different. I gained 60 and it took almost a year to lose weight. I had so much fluid in me it was gross

  23. luelueloop says:

    I showed my mom this pic and she said she’s gained probably 40ish pounds. I hate to say this but i do think she is say 52 to gain sympathy. She wants that ” look im just like you” sympathy. Not realizing that she doesn’t need it beacuse just about everyone understands that women gain weight during pregnancy. Whether its 20,30,40 or 50 lbs pregnant women gain weight. Another reason i think she’s lying is when she was pregnant wiyh her first she said something about only gaining 20lbs and she was eating super healthy, then on ther show it showed her eating unhealthy. There isn’t a problem with eating what you want, but why do you need to lie about something as simple as junk food?? Your pregnant eat what you want as long as you are healthy about it. Its sad that they lie so much that no one belives anything. Also didn’t she say something about how ” Ive never Farted or pooped ever!”?

  24. TheOtherViv says:

    I am starting to think that Yeezy has some kind of MadMax or Slaves of Gor fetish. Why is he putting those chokers on her? I dread to think what goes on in their bedroom.
    Regarding the weight: you just go ahead and eat, girl. Then there’ll be less talking and fewer naked pics for us to bear. What a wonderful thought.

    • Alana says:

      Alas she already have a hundred plastic surgeries scheduled right after birth so she can show us her sexy thinner body by March etc.
      This baby has been scheduled from the beginning. She was probably inseminated so the baby will be due in christmas aka most her gain weight is in winter and then has time for her surgeries recovery for spring nude photos

  25. me says:

    I can NOT stand any Kardashian or Jenner, but I will admit Kim would be quite adorable in some comfy clothes. I guess that’s why she won’t do it, not sexy for her schtick.

  26. Wolfie88 says:

    Is that with or without the weight of the coat?

  27. Mylene - Montreal says:

    i think she’s a very beautiful pregnant women. it’s so sad that she not enjoy this beautiful moment. I can’t have kids and i would give anything to be on her situation. But anyway .. i just want to say that she look beautiful, her clothes 99% of the time don’t fit but her body and her face are beautiful.

  28. L says:

    what I don’t understand is how women gain so much weight during pregnancy? I’ve had two children. First one: 25 lb weight gain. Second: 18 lb. weight gain. Both babies were 7lbs. 4oz.

    Now, I did exercise mildly during my pregnancies, mostly yoga and Pilates. And I ate more for sure. But to gain that much weight can only mean you are eating a lot.

    Then for her to complain about hating pregnancy, feeling fat and gross. It’s just irresponsible!

    • EN says:

      Well, I gained 50 pounds in both of my pregnancies and I was slim and healthy and active all my life, I am always around size 4.
      When I was pregnant it was like a host taken over my body, I was always hungry. I was craving red meat bad, and I usually don’t eat red meat at all. I could eat a whole stake and be ravenous again in one hour. Needless to say that I didn’t enjoy the complete loss of control over my body.
      So those people who have easier time of it, good for you, and consider yourself lucky.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I don’t think that’s fair, but I understand why someone like you doesn’t understand. By “someone like you,” I mean someone who can eat normally and exercise moderately and be thin. It’s logical, if somewhat judgmental, for you to think she must be gorging. But everyone is different, and some, maybe even most women over 30 have to work harder than that to stay normal weight, and people react differently to pregnancy. I think it’s entirely possible that Kim is eating too much, but I wouldn’t make that assumption. She might just gain weight easily when she’s pregnant or all the time.

        Bless you for saying this. It sounds incredibly judgmental to say you know better than a woman’s doctor. I eat ridiculously healthy. I do yoga 3-4 times a week. I’m walking at least 15 miles a week. I’m three months out having gained 32 pounds so far. Comments like this make me feel like crap. Women have a hard enough time in this world with the weight shaming – maybe try a little sensitivity & quit judging others in order to make yourselves feel better?

        I’m especially sensitive today because I just got put on insulin for gestational diabetes. Despite three doctors & a dietician who’ve gone over my health, exercise & food records telling me I’ve done everything right & this can just happen, I feel like I’ve failed somehow. And some of the comments in this thread are exactly the reason why I feel like this.

        Thanks to all of you who don’t weight shame. Me (and my maybe future daughter – we aren’t finding out) appreciate you!

        @Cleo, don’t feel bad. Pregnancy is very hard for many women. And hormone swings make it even harder, I cried about everything when I was pregnant and I am not normally that emotional.
        The main thing is to take care of yourself and get as much rest and sleep as you can before the baby is born.

        Aw, hang in there, Cleo. Who cares about the number of pounds? You are perfectly within reason, and at the end, you’ll have a beautiful little girl to love. You are beautiful!

        Thank you – normally, I can power through most days with an IDGAF mentality, but the humblebrags & judginess in this thread got to me. Maybe because this place usually doesn’t do this. I mean, FFS – being pregnant opens us up to massive amounts of judging to begin with. And to that I usually laugh & make surf to carry my coffee cup high (decaf, but I still get rude looks) & I love buying my husband’s bourbon for him! 😀

        But the weight stuff hits hard & getting the diagnosis & handed a bunch of insulin pens (I also have a needle phobia) hit me even harder. I tell myself I got through cancer, and the nice thing about this is that once I power through it, I’ll have something much more lovely than a mangled boob at the end! I did want to call some people out. Words have power, and it’s wise to think about the power behind those words before speaking or typing.

      As mentioned up thread, a lot of women have issues: gestational diabetes, bed rest, water retention etc. That being said, some women do just flat out eat a ton while pregnant. I’m glad I’m not an OBGYN. I would probably be pretty insensitive to patients who weren’t taking the proper care and precaution of their bodies while pregnant bc there are a lot of ppl out there who do fall into that category.

    • Mle428 says:

      @L Did you read any of the above comments about high risk pregnancies, fluid retention, and activity restriction? Good for you that you had a perfect pregnancy. It doesn’t always work out that way.

      I’m up 20 pounds at 4 months due to complications and bedrest. I’ve always been fit and athletic, and while I have been able to start doing mild exercising, I had to put my baby over my vanity. You have no idea what another woman goes through when faced with a high risk pregnancy.

    Everyone is different and every pregnancy is different. It always eerks me when people say ‘you should only gain… Blah blah Blah’. STFU. Seriously.

  30. MediaMaven says:

    She looks miserable. But, I think that she knows how fleeting her fame is because even as uncomfortable as she is, she’s still out there shilling and trying to stay relevant and “sexy”. In her world, if she takes off a few weeks (without holding the potential of seeing her “royal child” accessory over everyone’s heads), she’s forgotten. That’s how tenuous the lives they created are. There’s always a younger sister to swoop in and take her place. Such a sad family dynamic.

  31. me says:

    Thank God only one more month of hearing about this woman’s pregnancy !

  32. MoochieMom says:

    This scares me. I BLEW UP my last 3 weeks (should have been six but Moochie came early). I popped that belly at 7 months and had to have help tying my tennis shoes! This one is coming early too. I’m putting that bet in now.

  33. shewolf says:

    I gained 18 lbs with my first, 15 lbs with my second. Im 120 lbs not pregnant and 5’6. That meant that after they were born I was virtually back at my pre-pregnancy weight. Did I look “not pregnant” any more? Not by a bloody long shot. My hips were wide for at least another 9 months and my belly was poofed out and squishy. In fact, 3 months post partum someone asked me if I was pregnant. 🙁

    I know women who gained 50 lbs but looked back to normal 1 month later.

    Kim’s not doing anything wrong, thats just how her body does pregnancy, its different for all of us!

  34. Mrs Odie says:

    A woman who leaves the hospital in her pre-preg jeans is not any better than a woman who takes 4 years to lose the last 20. Why is this a badge of honor? It sounds so shallow to be giving women praise or side-eye based on their weight before, during, and after pregnancy.

  35. brincalhona says:

    Pregnancy weight should be calculated from the time you get pregnant not what you weighed as a teenager. Perhaps during pregnancy she actually wears clothes 2 sizes too small, not 4 sizes smaller than she thinks she is.

  36. DONNA MARTIN says:

    Pregnancy weight is such a boring topic. I know she brought it up but why give it any importance? You are making and carrying a human being in your body = you gain weight. Yawn

  37. yep says:

    Look gained weight during your lovely pregnancies. Sometimes quite a bit. And thats ok.
    But what looks freaky on kimmy, is that the fat injections in her ass, is causing most of her gain there. Fat is naturally attracted to the implanted fat cells. Her ass is bigger than her baby tummy. And I know for a fact you ladies did not have that problem. A bigger bum, sure. But not a freaky side show act.
    Thats her problem, caused by vanity.
    And her poor feet and ankles look like painful stumps.
    Why in the world would she, knowing her condition, torture herself and amplify the angry swelling of her feet? Like the chokers…she does not have the neck to gracefully carry that look.
    Im poor, but at least I know what does and doesnt work fashion wise. I love skinny jeans..but no way in hell would I humilate myself in public with them.on.
