Kim Kardashian West is the first to admit she’s not a big fan of being pregnant.
“I hate being pregnant,” she tells PEOPLE exclusively. “I think it’s the worst experience.”
And with good reason. The reality star and entrepreneur has had two high-risk pregnancies: with 3-year-old daughter North, she suffered from preeclampsia (a condition characterized by high blood pressure) and with son Saint, now 6 months, Kardashian West had placenta accreta, in which the placenta attaches too deep in the uterine wall.
During Saint’s dramatic birth, “it took about two hours to get my placenta out,” says Kardashian West. “My cervix was closed and the doctor had to break through my cervix with his hand. They thought they were going to have to remove my uterus. I knew it was a possibility, but [luckily] we worked it out.”
