Kim is concerned about complications related to pre-eclampsia, a condition she suffered from while pregnant with her two-year-old daughter North.

She explained that after birth, a woman will usually deliver the placenta. Unfortunately, Kim’s stayed attached inside her uterus following North’s arrival.

This is called placenta accreta and as a result of the high-risk condition, the reality star says she underwent the ‘most painful experience of my life’ to have a doctor scrape it out by hand.

‘My mom was crying; she had never seen anything like this before,’ wrote Kim, who had to give birth almost six weeks early.

‘After all of that, I still had a piece of placenta attached inside of me and I had to have surgery to remove it. Then I had another surgery to remove the scar tissue.

‘This was all preventing me from getting pregnant the second time around. I have amazing doctors that helped me through the entire process and I’m so grateful I was able to conceive again!’

Now Kim’s revealed that there’s a small chance the condition could cause her some serious health risks in the future.

‘With the issues I had last time, my risk of having preclampsia 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.

‘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.

‘My advice to anyone going through this or anything difficult during pregnancy is that all you can do is be hopeful, get the best information out there and just be prepared.

‘The more information you have, the better you know how to handle it!’
