Showing off her baby bump on the covers the December/January issue of Fit Pregnancy, Kourtney Kardashian opens up about being pregnant for the third time, her previous birth experiences, the joys of breastfeeding and more.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians who is due to give birth in December says she is more tired this time around, but still loves being pregnant.
“I love being pregnant in general. This time I’m more tired than I was the other times. I think it’s because I’m always running around and working on different things. But I feel comfortable with how I look and feel. I find a pregnant body to be beautiful and an incredible reminder of what a woman’s body is made to do,” she tells.
Kardashian reveals what she found most surprising about pregnancy.
“I was surprised that everyone calls it “morning sickness,” because it lasted all day. For me, it was even worse at night. During my first two pregnancies I felt so nauseous all day that I could only eat plain toast and bland foods—no proteins. But the nausea went away after the first trimester. This pregnancy, I get nauseous even now if I go too long without eating, and that never happened before when I was in my second trimester,” she explains.
The mom to 5-year-old Mason and 2-year-old Penelope says her first two births were easy.
“Both were really easy. I actually pulled both babies out of me! I was out of the hospital so fast both times because I just wanted to get home. I stayed in my pajamas for 30 days and kept the house really quiet. It’s the only time I feel I have that excuse to shut everyone out and shut everything off. That time is a gift,” she told, while explaining she chooses to give birth at the hospital because, “I think it’s smarter and safer. I witnessed a home birth with my sister Khloé and, after seeing it, I felt it wasn’t for me. There was too much risk involved and it wasn’t as sanitary as a hospital.”
Kardashian is a strong supporter of moms breastfeeding their children.
“I nursed Mason for 14 months and Penelope for 16, and I loved it. It was built-in time that the two of us could share alone every day. I didn’t have any goals or expectations,” she told.
