After teasing the episode last week, last night’s Keeping Up With The Kardashians showed Kim Kardashian getting her uterus ‘cleaned out’ to improve her chances of getting pregnant again.
Kim’s struggle to conceive for a second time has been well documented, and she’s willing to try anything to give north West a little brother or sister.
Good luck, Kimye.
In the episode, the 34-year-old underwent surgery to excavate her internal organ to improve her chances of getting pregnant and hopefully decrease the probability of having to go down the surrogacy route, which Kim particularly wants to avoid.
During the procedure, Dr Huang thinks he may have found ‘some old placenta’ from when she was pregnant with North.
Sincere apologies if you’re eating right now.
Talking before the procedure, Kim says: “There is nothing more that I want on this earth than to be pregnant again. [Surrogacy] is really is a last resort for me.”
Momager Kris Jenner suggested that “Kourtney would probably do it,” but Kim didn’t look entirely convinced.
However, Dr Huang explained that surrogacy would be the only way to ensure a safe pregnancy for both Kim and the baby, so it needs to be considered.
Lucky Kris was treated to before and after photos of Kim’s uterus after the procedure (again, SORRY), with the doctor explaining what he’d cleaned out.
He explained: “That might be some old placenta, but at the end of it you have a nice clear cavity.
“I feel optimistic, I will put her on some hormones to get her on her next cycle.”
We feel a bit queasy, actually.
Luckily, Kris didn’t seem too fazed by the photos, joking: “Hopefully she’ll move out by then, so I don’t have to go through yet another menstrual cycle with her.”
We’re keeping our fingers crossed that this procedure helps Kim conceive the second baby she’s so desperate for.
