Kim Kardashian Takes Heat for Traveling While Pregnant Again

Kim KardashianAs if Kim Kardashian weren't getting enough negative attention over the amount of pregnancy weight she's gaining, now Kim's being criticized for traveling with her baby bump again. Don't we have anything better to think about, people?

A few weeks ago, Kim was rushed to the hospital after returning to L.A. from Paris, but it turned out to be just a scare. Since then, she's been to Atlanta and New York to promote the Tyler Perry film Temptation, and now she’s back in Paris, Instagramming photos of Notre Dame. Is she putting her baby in danger with all this travel? 

Of course not! Unless there's some kind of medical issue, pregnant women are not suddenly frail and fragile weaklings who need to spend their "confinement" lounging on couches by the sea (if only!).

I commuted into New York City from New Jersey to my full-time job during my entire pregnancy via the bus, the subway, and my feet. (Ah yes, memories of barfing in a garbage can in Port Authority. Lovely!) I was so anxious about saving money and racking up days off so I could be home with the baby for as long as possible that I worked right up until a week before my due date. It was tough, especially toward the end when I felt like a giant bus myself -- I can still picture the flight of stairs I had to climb to get out of the subway station! -- but I survived. As do PLENTY of pregnant women.

I also -- gasp! -- traveled while pregnant, flying cross-country to see my family in California twice. AS DO PLENTY OF PREGNANT WOMEN!

For better or for worse, Kim's "job" is to be out and about -- to be seen -- and, presumably, to check in on her various business affairs. So, why should she stop doing that? And while we're at it, what is it about pregnancy that drives people to offer unsolicited advice and opinions?! It's not just celebrities who get this treatment; if you've been pregnant, you know what I'm talking about -- from the barista who gives you a snotty look when you order a latte to the random person in the elevator who tells you wearing high heels is bad for the baby. Um, kthanks, genius, I'll really take that into consideration.

Keep on keeping on, Kim Kardashian. The fascination with your weight and how you live your life is only going to get worse once that baby is born!

Did you ever receive annoying, unsolicited "concern" or advice while you were pregnant?

How about Ms. Kardashian taking heat for being so classless and crass for being pregnant by a man she knew for about five minutes while still married to another? There used to be a word for that and it rhymes with "hut". But wait, we shouldn't judge because it's just another "lifestyle choice"...

I heard, "just you wait", so much I wanted to start screaming.

She didnt know Kanye for just 5 min they have been friends for a long long time. He even came out in khloe and kourtney take Miami.

Anyway who gives a fuck what she does or doesn't. Her choices do not have an effect on my life or the well being of my kids or family. So let's just leave this girl alone.

When you fly, especially long distances, you are exposing yourself to radiation (as you do eating, walking down the street etc, radiation is everywhere!). You get several days worth of radiation flying across the Atlantic while you only get several hours having a dental X-ray. I think it is fine for pregnant women to fly, but it is also fine for them to have a dental X-ray if needed too. As a dentist I am sick to death of hearing about pregnant women refusing to have one tiny dental X-ray to permit necessary dental treatment but that they are really looking forward to their trip to Hawaii or wherever.

She is not harming her baby. Flight attendants work while pregnant.


I get all kinds of annoying comments.  I am six months pregnant and have not experienced any of the hardships others have warned me about. You can't even tell that I am pregnant.

Shannon you are a classless moron! Why is she a slut? Because her and her BOYFRIEND ( omg! not her husband) are having a baby? And there is no law that states you have to wait until your divorce is final to date someone. And her and Kanye have been together since last year so last I checked that was longer than 5 min YOU HALFWIT! You can't help who you fall in love with. They obviously truly love each other; so what by your standards they shouldn't have a baby? Their is nothing classless; as you put it with having a baby with your boyfriend. It happens all the time!! What's classless is you judging someone that you don't even know! You are probably a sin free individual right Shannon? Yeah probably not; people who are free of sin don't judge others. So get off your high horse! You are probably so negative because you yourself needs to get laid

I didn't get a whole lot of ridiculous advice when I was pregnant with either of my kids, but my best friends mother in law told her during another friends wedding that she shouldn't dance because it "could kill the baby" (she was about 6 months pregnant at the time). Yikes.

well I believe it had been reported that her Dr. told her to cease travel. So if you can't follow this simple advice for the well being of you child, it begs the question as to what level of selflessness she will have as a mom. And it requires A LOT of that...

Who cares what she does. Who cares if she travels and goes half way across the world. We are not apart of her life and it's her business on what she does. No one should judge her for what she does, your not God so don't judge. People need to worry about their own lives and live it.
