Kim Kardashian is already mom to North West, 2, and due to give birth to her second child, a boy, on Christmas Day via C-section

The mother-to-be has been open about her fertility troubles and pregnancy struggles and recently spoke with E! News about her current pregnancy.  

"Every medical issue that you could probably have I feel like I get and I worry so much about it," the 35-year-old told E! News.

Kardashian added, "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."

Kardashian said she is "scared" for her delivery on her website, as she dealt with two complications during her pregnancy with North. The first was preeclampsia, a complication that includes high blood pressure and damage to certain organs, according to the Mayo Clinic. It is serious and can sometimes be fatal

The reality star also said that she had a life-threatening condition called placenta accreta during her first pregnancy. According to a previous HuffPost explainer on Kardashian's condition, placenta accreta occurs when the placenta grows too deeply into the mother’s uterus, becoming inseparable from the uterine wall. In some cases, a mother will have to have their uterus removed after giving birth. 

The reality star talked about what would happen if she had placenta accreta during her second pregnancy in a September 2015 interview with C Magazine. 

"Well, [the doctors] think I’ll have placenta accreta again, so if the placenta grows a little bit deeper than it did last time, then they are prepared to have my uterus removed, which is a little scary for me," said Kardashian to the publication. "I think we’re just gonna go day by day, see how overwhelming it is, and see how the delivery goes." 

Despite her medical complications, Kardashian told E! that she realizes how "blessed" she is to be pregnant again. 

"You know it was really hard for me to get pregnant so I do feel really blessed that I am pregnant," said Kardashian. "And at the end of the day it is a million times worth it …I'm really not complaining, I'm just being honest."
