Surrogacy is harder than pregnancy, Kim Kardashian learns

Kim Kardashian has no problem admitting she “hated being pregnant,” but having a surrogate carry her and husband Kanye West’s third child hasn’t been easy either.

The mother of North and Saint West has opened up about their baby girl on the way, telling ET, “I hated being pregnant…I thought this was going to be so easy, but you know, even in how much I hated it, if I could do it myself I would have preferred that.”

The 37-year-old, who suffered from placenta accreta during her two previous pregnancies, went on to describe using a surrogate as “definitely a different experience.”

Though Kim Kardashian recognizes she’s blessed to have surrogacy as an option, she says anyone “that says or thinks it is just the easy way out is just completely wrong. I think it is so much harder to go through it this way, because you are not really in control.”

“Obviously you pick someone that you completely trust and that you have a good bond and relationship with, but [to be the surrogate] it is still … knowing that I was able to carry my first two babies and not my baby now, it’s hard for me. It’s definitely a harder experience than I anticipated just in the control area.”

Kim and Kanye have yet to announce their third child’s due date, but it’s speculated the little girl will arrive in the next few weeks — and they’re “freaking out” she doesn’t yet have a name.

Kim’s well aware she likes “different” names and has a few other preferences. She and Kanye “vibe” names that are “short, easy to spell, one syllable.”

Naturally, fans (a few of whom think they’re particularly funny) are eager to help out. Recent suggestions include Nine, Mae, Quest, and Wylde — all, of course, with the last name West.

With Kim’s preferences in mind, what names do you suggest?
