Kim Kardashian isn’t hiding the fact that she’s uncomfortable in her pregnant body, and now, the reality star is admitting that her weight makes her round up when telling others how far along she is with her first child.
“I tell everyone six months because it makes me feel better for being heavy, but I’m like 5 ½ months,” the star told Extra on March 17 at the premiere of Temptation, her debut film.
As the new issue of In Touch reports, the E! star is having trouble embracing the extra baby weight as she eats for two and packs on the pounds in her second trimester.

“She’s eating whatever she wants— ice cream, fries, cereal loaded with sugar,” says a family insider. Adds a friend of the reality star: “She has a chef who makes healthy meals, but Kim’s weakness is comfort food. Carbs…crappy stuff.”
And the 32-year-old admits that having a bun in the oven is no walk in the park. “It’s hard when a lot is changing in your body and you get sick and you are traveling and so much is going on,” she tells Extra. “It’s not easy being pregnant.”
In addition to calling herself “heavy,” Kim’s been finding it increasingly difficult to dress her baby bump in a flattering way. As In Touch reported today, the star has hired Jennifer Lopez’s styling team to help Kim dress her pregnancy curves.

“She feels like they know exactly how to work with her bump and her curves to make her look her best,” a source tells the mag. Prior to recruiting professional assistance, Kim opened up in her blog about how her changing body is “awkward” to clothe.
"At this stage I guess I'm more focused on concealing the weight gain than I am about dressing the bump," she wrote. "For me, I've found that I've gained inches and I've gotten wider but my belly hasn't popped yet, so I struggle finding things that don't make me look heavy."
