“Being pregnant is not as easy as my sister made it look or as my mom has made it look,” the reality star told E! News. “I like to be active … but I’ve been chilling out. I took a week off, just to rest and it was amazing.”
Of course, the Internet being the Internet, commenters on various sites, including this story on People.com, jumped all over her for being clueless. Like this comment:
“Tougher than she expected?!? What did she expect? Wait until she has to push a HUMAN BEING out of her crotch. Good luck with that.”
But you know what? Pregnancy IS hard (well, except for a few lucky souls who just seem to take it in stride). All of a sudden, you’ve got this other human being inside of you. It’s not all about you anymore. All of your decisions affect not only yourself, but this innocent little bundle you’re carrying.
Your hormones go crazy, you develop a split personality, and everyone wants to give you advice, especially all the horror stories of birth and delivery. It can be downright frightening!
But it’s also a time of joy, self-discovery and empowerment. It’s awesome to think that a woman can carry a baby for nine months and then push that baby out of her body and watch it grow. It’s all new and crazy at times, and as Kim said, not as easy as some women make it look.
From what we’ve seen of Kourtney Kardashian’s pregnancies, maybe she’s one of those women who just seems to take it all in stride. But let’s let Kim be the type of mom she’s meant to be. Let’s cut her some slack. I think she’ll be a great mom.
