10 Ways you can be pregnant like a Kardashian
Here’s how you can keep up with the Kardashians when you’re expecting!
The Kardashians are many things but the one thing they’re not is boring.
The whole world watched as sisters Kim and Kourtney took on pregnancy with flair.
From edgy maternity fashion choices to unconventional views on labor and delivery, they weren’t afraid to bare it all.
Here are 10 ways to keep up with the Kardashians even when you’re expecting.
1. Be proud of your new figure
Only choose the coolest outfits to show off your curves and baby bump, like: skin tight jumpsuits, pregnancy cleavage is good, too! You can’t go wrong with floor-length pieces.
Kim’s pregnancy style has evolved into a more low-key look over the course of two pregnancies. As she told Elle, “ “It was mainly him figuring it out—what my look was and what I was comfortable in. So now I’ve had two years to really come into my own and have my own style.” The look now is “more simple,” she says. “I figured out a formula of what works.”
2. Remember: don’t be afraid to take it all off!
Both of them were so proud of their pregnancy physique they had to show the whole world just how much!
Kourtney graced the cover of Dujour magazine wearing nothing but a smize.
Kim, however, posted a nude selfie with the caption: “I’ve learned to love my body at every stage!”
3. When you’re out of ideas, raid your little sister’s closet for maternity wear!
It doesn’t matter if your little sister isn’t a mum; there are a lot of cool pieces that would go well with your maternity fashion. Just look at this post from Kourtney while she was pregnant with her son, Reign.
4. Own those mood swings, girl!
Embracing those crazy hormones is a must if you want to be like Kim or Kourtney.
No matter how “crazy” you feel, the important thing is being honest with yourself.
Take your cue from Kim, who wrote in her blog: “I just always feel like I’m not in my own skin.” But in the end she believes “it’s 100 percent worth it and more!!!”
5. Hang out with your fabulous BFFs
It’s important to have equally fabulous friends who can make even the most mundane stuff fun!
Like Kim and Kanye’s BFF couple Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, for whom they threw an intimate baby shower at their L.A. Mansion.
When it was Chrissy and John’s turn to have a baby on the way, Kim and Kanye (and their adorable daughter) were totally there for them.
Just look at this adorable shot of Kanye and his daughter North catching some Zs while Kim, Chrissy, and John shopped.
“So today we went baby shopping with @johnlegend & @chrissyteigen Kanye & North were a little too quiet. We found them passed out in the middle of the store,” writes Kim in the photo’s caption.
6. Embrace those cravings!
Kourtney only wants the healthiest food for her kids but she believes it’s important to listen to your cravings when pregnant. When she had a bun in the oven, she loved Nilla Wafer cookies, as well as the oddly good combo of cheese and pickle sandwiches!
As for Kim? Her main cravings were for In-N-Out burgers and cheesy fries.
And she proudly shared this on her Instagram with the accompanying hashtag: #EnjoyingEveryBite.
Indulge on those cravings guilt-free! You can always hit the gym later on.
7. Google is not your friend
Refrain from relying on Dr. Internet for your every burning question about pregnancy. It’s tough to curate content when your sense of judgment is clouded by worry.
Kim told Ryan Seacrest in a previous interview: “I get really paranoid and I start Googling things. The things that come up are really scary. It just freaks me out all the time.”
8. Be honest about your struggles
Kim didn’t really keep her struggles to get pregnant private. So it was inspiring to see her be brave enough to talk about it on their reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Kim tried to consult psychic John Edwards but failed to find the reassurance she was looking for. She proved him wrong anyway when she got pregnant with her second child, Saint.
9. Never give up your favorite shoes!
For some women, sneakers are their favorite footwear but if you’re like Kim who lives for stilettos, it can be daunting when your feet start to swell, a common occurence during pregnancy.
But the swelling didn’t stop her from strutting her stuff in her fave strappy pair. So you shouldn’t, too!
10. Ask your partner for the ‘push present’ you really want
“We women go through an entire pregnancy carrying a baby…of course it only makes sense that we get something amazing to show how amazing we are! LOL!”, Kim wrote in a blog post while pregnant with her second child.
Kanye gave her Cartier bracelets as a push present before she gave birth to North. As for her second pregnancy, she also got her wish: a million-dollar diamond choker.
Of course, that’s not really an option for us regular folk but it doesn’t mean we can’t ask for the ‘push present’ we want, within reason.
Pregnancy isn’t a walk in the park but you can make the journey more fabulous with awesome style and an authentic attitude. That’s what Kim and Kourtney would do!
