After your first pregnancy, you might swear off having another child for quite some time, especially if you had to endure first trimester symptoms that left you feeling worn out. However, not everyone is interested in waiting to have a second child. Some women love the idea of eliminating a large age gap between their kids and giving their babies a sibling as soon as possible. Now, rumor has it that Kim Kardashian is one of them.
The cover of Life & Style magazine has Kardashian already pregnant with her second child, despite no confirmation from the reality television star, baby daddy Kanye West or her family. If this is the case, it's only been about eight weeks since the birth of her first child, North. There are also rumors circulating about Kardashian and West tying the knot, but no word has come from the family that the two are finally getting hitched, despite having a child together.
This seems to be a trend in the family - Kourtney, Kardashian's sister, has two children with her long-time boyfriend, Scott Disick. Who says you need to put a ring on it?
Many people are finding it hard to imagine that Kardashian is pregnant once again, especially after her first pregnancy. Her daughter was born five weeks early, and the reality star struggled with everything from her weight to swelling throughout her body while expecting. Who would want to do that all over again right away? Now, the world is anxiously awaiting to hear word from the family, whether it's pertaining to the wedding or pregnancy rumors.
If it turns out that Kardashian is pregnant again, she wouldn't be the only celebrity to conceive right after giving birth - Jessica Simpson did the same, and her second pregnancy postponed her wedding! But when is your body ready to go through pregnancy all over again?
Heather Shapiro, M.D., associate professor at the department of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Toronto, told The Huffington Post that there are no absolute risks or complications that will occur if you choose to conceive right after your last pregnancy. However, it's still a good idea to talk to your healthcare provider about whether your body is ready.
