Star of 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' says she hasn't suffered morning sickness, but has endured a little pain
She doesn’t have morning sickness, but Kim Kardashian says it's a stretch to call her pregnancy pleasant.
“I wouldn't say that it's been easy," the reality TV star told “Entertainment Tonight” at a New Year's Eve party in Las Vegas Monday night.
“When people say pregnancy is fun and they love it, I would have to disagree," she said. "It's not as easy as people think. It is, you know, a little painful. There's a lot of growing pains."
Rapper Kanye West’s baby mama said she managed to get through her first 12 weeks without any nausea or vomiting, so she's hopeful things will get even better.
"I think from this stage on it does become easier and funner," she told “ET” on the red carpet for the Mirage resort's 1 Oak nightclub. "I heard it's all worth it, so I'm looking forward to that, and I'm excited."
Asked if she was tired as others counted down to midnight, the buxom beauty said she takes "lots of naps" to compensate for her whirlwind schedule.
In a separate interview with Us magazine, she revealed she wants to learn her baby’s gender before giving birth.
"Of course I want to know. I can't find out yet, but I do want to know," she revealed at the Sin City shindig.
"It's definitely an adjustment learning about your body and stuff like that," she told Us.
Kardashian, 32, hit the 1 Oak party just a day after West, 35, dropped the baby bombshell during a performance in Atlantic City.
The happy couple raced from New Jersey to Los Angeles early Monday and then high-tailed it to Vegas for Kardashian's long-scheduled paid appearance.
Clad in a see-through black mesh dress with strategically placed appliqués, Kardashian mugged for the cameras as she cuddled and kissed her beaming beau.
The spotlight soakfest was in line with Kardashian's highly public persona and a stark contrast to the report she and West plan to keep their infant far away from any TV cameras and out of the family biz.
According to TMZ.com, the parents-to-be have decided their newborn will not appear in a "Kim Gives Birth" special or on any reality shows for that matter.
They want to "ensure real privacy" for the celebrity spawn, an unidentified source told TMZ.
Just how private may be up for debate: E!, the home of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians," is already making plans.
“Like so many Kardashian fans, we love it when this close-knit family gets even bigger. We look forward to sharing the joy as they prepare for more diapers, more bottles and without a doubt, more fabulous baby wear," E! President Suzanne Kolb told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement.
In the meantime, Kim’s “momager,” Kris Jenner, has solicited offers from national celebrity magazines for an exclusive cover story on her daughter’s pregnancy, a well-placed source told the Daily News.
