According to the latest gossip surrounding Kim Kardashian, she used IVF in order to get pregnant for the second time with her rapper husband Kanye West. Reportedly, she is pregnant with twins this time around!!
Her first pregnancy ended in a complicated delivery due to preeclampsia, a potentially dangerous condition in which a woman’s blood pressure skyrockets during pregnancy, as well as placenta accreta, where blood vessels from the placenta grow into the uterine wall and remain attached.
Kardashian West, 34, and husband Kanye West, 37, tried to expand their family for eight months, but it wasn’t until the couple had the help of in vitro fertilization that they were able to conceive.
“Kim also had three surgeries to repair her uterus,” a source close to the star tells PEOPLE. “The inner lining had been so damaged that she was told conceiving on her own wasn’t possible.”
With the help of her fertility doctors, Kardashian West had IVF treatment with hormones four months ago, which sadly didn’t take.
With regard to whether or not she’s pregnant with twins, a source close to the situation says it’s entirely possible. The source revealed, “Kim has told a handful of people that she had in vitro and that two eggs were fertilized. She is waiting to see if they both stick before she makes any kind of announcement. She has to wait and see if they are both okay. And she is waiting to get an okay from her doctor that both the fertilized eggs are healthy.”
