Khloe Kardashian Doesn’t Need to Explain Her Pregnancy Attempts to Anyone

khloe kardashianKhloe Kardashian has made it known that she's dying to have a child. She's also made it known that, unfortunately, it hasn't exactly been happening with lightning speed. Always the open book, she's let the world know that she and husband, Lamar Odom, have been trying to get pregnant for some time (I believe since their wedding day to be exact), but to no avail.

Now, it's being reported that the Kardashian sister is undergoing IVF treatments. A source recently told Life & Style magazine, "[Khloe] told me she’s been working with a doctor and a team of people to help her get pregnant. She recently stepped things up and began exploring new methods. She’s asked about every possible way to help her infertility problems, like trying artificial insemination and in vitro fertilization."

Good for her! I hope Khloe gets her wish. But ... bad move telling everyone her business.


I guess it's an innate -- albeit annoying, intrusive -- question after two people have been married for some time: When are you guys gonna have kids? But when you tell people you're trying, well, it only makes it all the more annoying. Are you pregnant yet? When's it gonna happen? When, when, when, when?

I made this cardinal mistake before my husband and I went on vacation this summer. A few months before we left, when people would ask me that fateful question, I would casually answer, "We'll probably start trying when we go away in August." Well, lo and behold, nary a family member forgot that tidbit upon our return. Before my grandmother even asked me how my trip was, she inquired through a cloud of Marlboro Light smoke, "Did you bring me any good news?" And, yes, her voice is exactly as you would imagine it to be.

Then the texts started coming from my sister. At least once a day, I would check my phone and see the message: "Do you know if you're pregnant yet?" The truth was, I didn't know, but to get her to quit asking, I finally just said, "Yes, I know. And I'm not."

It was adding too much pressure. I didn't want to tell people the second I found out -- I needed time to process. So, I can't imagine what it would be like for the entire world to know you're trying -- especially when it's not working out right away. You need some room to breathe.

I'm sure Khloe and Lamar will be blessed with pregnancy soon enough. But until then, I'd say it's best to keep quiet, because they really don't need that added pressure.

Do you think Khloe will make a good mom? Did you tell people you were trying?
