“I went in and there was no heartbeat"
Kim Kardashian has opened up about a scary time she experienced when pregnant with her first child, North.
Revealing that she thought she’d suffered a miscarriage, Kim Kardashian shared her story on attorney Laura Wasser’s podcast this week.
Kim told the story of when she rushed to hospital following heavy bleeding, with a doctor soon confirming that a heartbeat was no longer detected.
“I went in and there was no heartbeat and he said, ‘Oh, you had a miscarriage,” she said.
Upon hearing the news, Kim and her doctor arranged for her to have a D&C on thanksgiving evening when what can only be described as a holiday miracle happened.
“(I) went in because you have to go and do a D&C to clean out a miscarriage. It was Thanksgiving morning and my doctor said, “Come in in the morning and we’ll do it Thanksgiving night so no one will see you.”I was so worried people would find out, it was the first time I ever was pregnant. I was so nervous.
‘And then Thanksgiving morning I came in to do it and he said, “There’s a heartbeat.” She continued.
‘And I was like, “Oh, my God. This is a sign, it’s Thanksgiving morning.” So we ended up, obviously, having North.’
This isn’t the first time Kim has equated her children to a miracle, however.
Recently, the 39-year-old said that she believes her youngest son Psalm is the reincarnation of her late father, Robert Kardashian Sr.
“My whole family, all the time, thinks it’s my dad and is just so emotional and close to him.”
Since the birth of her second child, Kim has been diagnosed with placenta accrete, a serious condition that could prove fatal to both mother and child, and has opted for surrogacy for her youngest two children.
