There has been lots of speculation about Kim Kardashian West‘s newly announced pregnancy. The chatter and gossip got so controversial that the normally composed reality star resorted to ranting via twitter.
There was speculation by Wendy Williams that the pregnancy was being carried by a surrogate and Kim was only going to sport a “fake bump”.
If you watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians, all season long, Kim had shared her struggle to conceive, on a recent episode where Kim revealed that she had IVF treatment but it was unsuccessful.
She later on announced that she was pregnant but without going into details on how she got there.
Now the truth behind her pregnancy has been revealed via People Magazine.
Kardashian West, 34, and husband Kanye West, 37, tried to expand their family for eight months, but it wasn’t until the couple had the help of in vitro fertilization that they were able to conceive.
“Kim also had three surgeries to repair her uterus,” a source close to the star tells PEOPLE. “The inner lining had been so damaged that she was told conceiving on her own wasn’t possible.”
With the help of her fertility doctors, Kardashian West had IVF treatment with hormones four months ago, which sadly didn’t take.
The next month, the couple conceived using IVF, but on Kardashian West’s natural cycle, without hormones. (And no, the source says, she isn’t expecting twins!)
There you have it!
