Kim Kardashian has described being pregnant as a 'mindf**k'

Kim Kardashian has impressed a lot of people with her latest blog post where she describes pregnancy as a “mindf**k”.

The post, entitled “How I Really Feel About Being Pregnant”, is an honest description of Kim’s second pregnancy, which she is really not enjoying.

‘I'm gonna keep it real: For me, pregnancy is the worst experience of my life! LOL! I don't enjoy one moment of it and I don't understand people who enjoy it,’ she wrote on

'Maybe it's the swelling, the backaches or just the complete mindf**k of how your body expands and nothing fits. I just always feel like I'm not in my own skin.'

Kim is currently expecting her second child with husband Kanye West, a boy who is due on Christmas Day but she is refreshingly candid about the downsides to bringing life into the world:

‘People just don't tell you all of the gross things that happen during pregnancy or after. Do you know you basically have to wear a diaper for two months afterwards! LOL! No one told me that! #SoSexy.

‘I don't feel sexy, either - I feel insecure and most of the time I just feel gross.’

Kim’s post has struck a cord with many women on social media, who have praised the star for highlighting the fact that pregnancy isn’t always a walk in the park:

‘I love how honest @KimKardashian is about being pregnant. She’s been one of the few celebs who’s told the WHOLE truth,’ tweeted @Ashley_Live.

‘Totally agree with @KimKardashian I do not like anything about being pregnant and struggle but [it’s] worth it for the bundle of joy at the end,’ tweeted @Alisonhughes29.

@KimKardashian I loved this. It was so honest and real. Pregnancy is different for every woman and you’re showing another side of it,’ tweeted @kimyonceee.

Kim and Kanye were very open about their struggle to conceive a little brother for two-year-old North – at one point the 34-year-old joked that the pair were having sex 500 times a day in order to get pregnant.

The reality star suffered from pre-eclampsia with her first pregnancy that saw her giving birth to North five weeks early in June 2013.
