Kim Kardashian's Divorce Could Be Hurting Her Baby

Health Check 20

kim kardashianNow that Kim Kardashian is pregnant, I guess we can replace all her divorce drama with pregnancy drama, right? Uh, no. Sources -- including Kris Jenner -- are saying the divorce drama may be leading to pregnancy drama. Okay, rolling your eyes is probably a normal reaction to that, but wait. The latest buzz doesn't sound like something out of an overdramatized reality show script. It actually sounds concerning ...

Sources tell TMZ that several days ago, Kim called her doctor in the middle of the night to come to the house because she was having severe pains. The doctor apparently believed her symptoms were largely stress-related and warned Kim to handle the stress or else there could be "long-term effects." And get this ... just hours before her meeting yesterday with her lawyer, Laura Wasser, Kim's pains returned in full force. Ugh. Clearly, the divorce is taking a serious toll!

Sure, it's easy enough to blow off a rumor like this as made-up, planted, exaggerated for publicity reasons, but I dunno, guys ... Kim has seemed stressed about the divorce for quite some time (in Kourtney & Kim Take Miami, which was filmed over the summer, she's seen occasionally taking calls from Wasser and freaking out). And since divorce proceedings seem to only be getting more drawn-out and hairy, I wouldn't be surprised if she's even more stressed out than she was then.

Kris Jenner corroborated the story up on The View this morning, saying:

Kim has been going through this divorce for months. She has been under a lot of stress because of it, and the doctors told her you’ve had a really tough week, and the stress could become a problem if she isn't careful.

Sounds like something Kim better not be taking lightly. We're always so go-go-go in our everyday lives that we often underestimate the power of stress on our physical health or even during a pregnancy. Sure, pregnant women are encouraged to slow down in certain ways (sitting down on public transportation, avoiding air travel after a certain point in the pregnancy, etc.), but it doesn't seem like we're talking enough about the emotional or mental stressors pregnant women could be facing that could have very real, troubling side effects.

With Kim's stress negatively affecting her pregnancy/health, there's no time to waste. She should get thee to an ashram (as my mom joked I'll have to do when I'm pregnant one day, because I'm especially stress-prone) -- or at least some kind of stress management counseling, meditation, yoga, etc. The sooner, the better off baby Kimye ... and Kim herself will be.

Do you agree we underestimate the power of stress? How did you handle it when you were pregnant?

She's a liar. It takes a special brand of asshole to use your kid to gain sympathy points.

Floridamom & HistoryMama are both right. Kim has always had options.

An annulment requires a special set of circumstances i.e. Being abused or in the case of what Kris H wants an admission of fraud on Kims part. And also FLORIDA and BOHA, so you tell me Kim and Kanye will be worse than say a 16 year who is still a child or crackheads who sell their child? That child will never want for either material or emotional support given Kims large extended family. Kim alone, not counting Kanyes fortune, has enough money to make her own schedule. Again, FLORIDA and BOHA, given that neither has any other children thus parenting abilities can't be determined, how can you make that judgement?

Flori... Floridamom96

1) neither of us said their child would be worse off than the children of crackheads. Stupid red herring.

2) like it or not it is an option that would immediately alleviate divorce related stress.

3) this judgement is based on both parties' very public exercise of some of the most atrocious judgement ever publicly displayed by any two people.

And as an aside, money and ability to provide material possessions have no bearing on parental capability whatsoever.

BOHA stated the worst that could happen to this baby is having Kim and Kanye as parents and you agree. So they are a worse option than 16 year olds and crackheads? Not a 'red herring' when you both stated they are the worst thing to happen to this child

Kim is very impulsive.

Flori... Floridamom96

The worse thing that can happen to this child, not any child.

Mommy... MommyBoha

Material things do not equal great parents. 16 year old crack head or 2 fame hungry parents who will do/say anything for fame and money. Same thing to me. That kid will used in any way possible to gain them more money and fame

Kim should have waited until she was divorced before getting pregnant.  Yeah, it sucks she's stressed with a pregnancy, but she most likely f'd over Chris and humiliated him.  It's doubtfully about the money, it's about the pain and anger he has.  I guess we'll never know what's really happening.

Kim should have gotten her shit together before getting pregnant by another man.
