Kim Kardashian hated being pregnant: I gained a lot of weight and felt awful

Kim Kardashian hated being pregnant, saying the excess weight gain and health problems she endured made her life hell.

"My labor was easy, but the whole pregnancy was so [bad]," Kardashian said on the Ellen DeGeneres Show Jan. 17. "I had a few medical issues, so it was really tough, and I gained a lot of weight.

The pregnancy — I wouldn't really wish that on anyone. Anyone. Pregnancy was not a good experience for me. At all."

Kim suffered from pre-eclampsia (dangerously high blood pressure), and kidney problems while pregnant, in addition to chronic body pain.

"I had pre-eclampsia, which was really tough, and had to deliver early," she said. "But I wouldn't take any of it back because I have the most adorable, sweetest baby in the world."

Kardashian said her rough pregnancy was a shock because her mother/manager, Kris Jenner (who has six children) and sister Kourtney both had easy pregnancies and told Kim pregnancy would be an amazing experience.

After her terrible experience, Kim said any woman who claims pregnancy is a breeze is being dishonest. "They are lying," said Kardashian. Still, she said she definitely wants more children down the line (maybe six).

Kardashian lost 50 pounds just six months after giving birth (in June 2013) by following the low-carb Atkins diet and working out almost every day, combining cardio exercise with strength-training.

Since her dramatic weight loss, Kim has been accused of losing weight through extensive plastic surgery, liposuction, and clever Photoshop editing. She has denied all those rumors, insisting she lost weight through diet and exercise.

Kardashian said she's happier than ever, and is looking forward to a beautiful summer wedding to fiance Kanye West. "He is honestly the most amazing dad," Kim gushed. "We know we want [the wedding] in the summertime, but we've got to figure that out."
