Kim Kardashian's Pregnancy Is Sad News for Sister Khloe

Heartbreaking 16

By now the whole world has heard the news that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are expecting a little Kimye. Frankly, I wasn't surprised in the slightest. Kim has always been jonesing on babies, and sources have recently said that Kanye is up for it (har) too. But as soon as I heard, I did think about Khloe. After all, she has struggled for years with unsuccessfully trying to have a baby with husband Lamar. What must it be like for Khloe when every Kardashian around her is able to get pregnant with hardly any effort at all?

Let's remember it was Kim who has been most pushy with Khloe about her lack of bun in oven -- desperately trying to get her to take fertility drugs, and even once convincing her to go to a fertility clinic under false pretenses. Khloe has gotten really angry with Kim in the past for this, and has told her flat out that doctors have told her she's fine and she'll conceive when she's ready.

Khloe's tweets about her sister certainly make her sound ecstatic for Kim -- but what else is she going to say? I'm not saying that Khloe isn't genuinely happy for Kim. I'm sure she's mature enough to put aside her feelings about herself to be happy for her sister. But surely there's some part of her that must feel disappointed that it's not her and Lamar. Who could blame her?

Still, I wouldn't be shocked if eventually Khloe ends up out-birthing the Kardashian klan -- except for maybe uber-fertile Kris Jenner, who's had six kids. I've seen many women struggle with infertility for years only to suddenly begin popping out babies, one right after the other, like a fetus machine. I saw one woman who couldn't have a baby for 10 years suddenly get pregnant three times in a row beginning in her late 30s.

And, of course, Khloe can always try fertility drugs or IVF. Her options are certainly still open. It must be annoying that everyone else in her family can pop 'em out so effortlessly though!

Do you feel sorry for Khloe? Have you ever struggled with infertility?

Of all the Kardashians Khloe is my favourite. I hope she gets her dream soon!

I had fertility issues for 6 years (pcos) and watched my sister have a baby after a one night stand. It was very hard for mevas I had been married for 9 years before I eventually conceived after 3 lots of fertility treatment. I adore my 11 yr old nephew but during her pregnancy and few years after I did struggle. However my love for my sister helped me support her and wearer very close.

We discovered we were expecting on our 9th wedding anniversary. William was born June 2006 and although we've not been able to conceive again, we are very blessed.

Way to promote getting pregnant while you're still married to another man, Kim!  Kim's pregnancy is sad news for our COUNTRY.

I don't have fertility issues but my brother does. I am pregnant with my first and he glares at my stomach, rolls his eyes whenever I talk about the baby and still has yet to tell me congrats. I understand being upset but the fact that he is unhappy about becoming an uncle really pisses me off.

I strugged with infertility for 4 years before getting treatment and getting pregnant.. before I was blessed to fall pregnant, when any of my friends or family would announce their pregnancies, it always felt like a stab in the heart and a punch in the stomach. I would genuinely be happy for them, but I hurt so bad for myself. I would think- why not me? I'm sure she is happy for her sister, but it is probably not easy on her, especially with the whole world talking about it. At least I had my privacy, not mant knew of my struggles- I can't imagine how SHE feels..

I am sure she is excited for her sister.  How do we know for sure that suffers from infertility?

She may have said it on her show to create more drama.

I got pregnant about a year ago after trying for a few years and then my sister in law announced she was pregnant a couple weeks later (she wasn't even trying) I had a miscarriage a week later and she rubbed it in my face the rest of her pregnancy and still does it now that she has the baby . She's the most attention seeking person I've ever met. Her sister is now pregnant and even though she can't afford the kid she has now she tried her hardest to get pregnant asap so the focus can be on her again instead of her sister's pregnancy and it worked. I'm still not pregnant but when I do I wish there was a way to hide it until I'm like 8 months so she doesn't "randomly" end up pregnant a 3rd time. It's not just that I'm a jealous bitch either several of my other family members were pregnant during that time and I was happy for them but they also didn't rub it in my face. I don't like any of the Kardashians but I feel for Khloe since Kim seems exactly like my sister in law.

Love Klohie...she is themost grounded of all the K sisters and that crazy mom. I wish her the best, and may she find herself as a mommie some day be it natural or thru adoption or surrogacy. You rock girl, you'll be a great momma!

I do feel bad for her.

I tried for 3 1/2 years to get pregnant with my first-my doctor could never come up with a solid reason why I wasn't getting pregnant. Then I got pregnant with my 2nd 10 months after my 1st was born. It took me a good 1 1/2 years to get pregnant with my 3rd, but I wasn't super suprised, considering that I was in my late 30's by then-hadn't done any reproductive assistance therapy, either,  just adopted this "Que sera, sera", attitude about it.

I hope she gets to realize her dream of becoming a mommy soon.

After trying for almost a year we found out my husband couldn't have kids. I was devastated. It took us over three years to finally the money to do IVF and have our son. People who don't have this struggle can never fully understand. Saying: ” I've seen many women struggle with infertility for years only to suddenly begin popping out babies...” is EXACTLY the kind of insensitive and horrible things people try to tell you when you're going through infertility. Just say you feel sorry for her and leave it at that.
