Kim Kardashian West's anxiety about 'high risk' birth

Kim Kardashian West's anxiety about 'high risk' birth

Kim Kardashian West is worried about her "high-risk" birth.

The 35-year-old reality TV star, who is pregnant with her second child, has admitted she's getting more and more worked up about her delivery as her festive due date grows closer because of the complications she could experience.

Speaking to E! News, she said: "Every medical issue that you could probably have I feel like I get and I worry so much about it. This pregnancy I have a little bit more anxiety just because I know what's to come and it's really inevitable some of the issues that I'm going to have. You know, I have a high-risk delivery and all of that gives me such anxiety."

However, the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star - who already has two-year-old daughter North with her husband Kanye West - is trying to remain positive because she knows she's surrounded by experienced doctors and nurses.

She explained: "I'm so blessed to be carrying a child again when I didn't think that was possible for me. I do have access to amazing doctors that have been so helpful so I'm hopeful that everything will work out and be fine."

But it's not just her "high risk" birth that Kim is worried about as she's also concerned about how big her unborn baby boy will be when he arrives as he already weighs a healthy 7lbs.

She said recently: "He's [the weight of] a REALLY heavy pineapple, LOL! [I have] Anxiety, knowing my baby is so big and I'm gaining a lot of weight. My doctor wants me to manage it better, but it's hard to! I have gained more than I did the first pregnancy. I'm up 52 pounds so far, with six weeks to go. North was just four pounds, so this is new to me. This baby is already seven pounds (sic)."
