For years now rumors have swirled about Khloe Kardashian being pregnant, not being able to get pregnant, and a whole host of other issues in between. We knew that she saw a doctor last season and things supposedly looked fine, but there still has been no pregnancy that we know of. Tonight on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, we saw her find out what really may have been (and still is?) preventing her from getting pregnant.
While she'd seen a regular OB/GYN and other doctors, she'd never seen an actual fertility specialist. Kim, who was worried about her own fertility and considering freezing her eggs, actually suggested going to Khloe and made a double appointment for them. Khloe admitted that she was scared, and that in the back of her mind, she knew something was wrong.
It appears she was right.
After telling Kim that she was all clear and could start freezing her eggs anytime she wants, the doctor gave Khloe the news -- she didn't ovulate that month. And, of course, when there's no ovulation, there's no possibility of a pregnancy. The episode ended there and is "to be continued," but Khloe was evidently upset and terrified.
I'm hoping that next week we learn more and find out that her issue is treatable -- as many ovulation problems are. But no matter what happens, I have such admiration for her for sharing this painful part of her life. So many women face similar problems, and they're often heartbreaking. Seeing her go through it has got to be comforting for many.
Seeing Kris Jenner go through her second boob job, however, did no one any good. Why the hell she chose to share that with the world, I don't know, but there she was post-operation begging her children and Scott Disick to look at her tits. The only thing weirder than that was the fact that Bruce Jenner didn't seem to be there for her surgery or afterward.
There was also the little matter of Scott considering getting a vasectomy without telling Kourtney. Fortunately Rob Kardashian ratted him out and told Kourtney -- who no longer believes in birth control -- and they hashed it out. But those two, per usual, don't even seem to be in the same library, much less on the same page of the book. I can only imagine how difficult it was for Khloe to see them discuss whether they want two kids or 600 with such nonchalance when she'd do anything to have just one child.
Khloe didn't tweet nearly as much during this episode as she usually does, and at one point she let followers know how hard this one was for her: "I'm not a big crier. So I'm not too excited about what's coming up. Might have to stop watching. Sometimes hate reliving tough emotions." That was followed only by one more that told fans how much she loved them and a retweet of a quote that read, "Faith is having the courage to let God have control."
Hopefully the appointment we saw tonight was the beginning of Khloe getting to the bottom of her issues and figuring out a way that she and Lamar can realize their baby dreams one way or another. She certainly has a lot of love being sent her way and plenty of people cheering her on.
Do you admire Khloe for sharing her fertility struggles?
