‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ Recap: Kim Kardashian Has Pregnancy Scare
Kim Kardashian had a pregnancy scare on Sunday’s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” when a doctor informed her she has more fluid than normal in her placenta, which could possibly indicate diabetes.
The third episode of Season 11, titled “Rites of Passage,” began exactly where last week’s show ended. Kris Jenner finished up her conversation with Scott Disick about where he and Kourtney stand. Kris told him, “I want you to be a full-time, committed, kick ass dad. They need you. They miss you.” Disick agreed, and so Kris instructed him to go over to Kourtney’s house to have dinner with his three kids and put them to bed.
Later, Kris told Kourtney and Khloe that they should throw a surprise joint graduation party for Kylie, who was about to graduate from High School, and also Kendall, because she felt bad they never had one for her. As the three discussed the invite list later that day, the girls asked Kris if she wanted to invite Caitlyn Jenner. “I don’t think I’m ready,” their mom responded. “I’m just trying to process it, not alienate anybody. I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings… But at the same time, I’m just trying to adjust to this whole thing. I haven’t even met her yet.” Kris went on to admit she was “scared to death” of meeting Caitlyn.
A 20-year-old medium named Tyler Henry visited Khloe’s home to perform a psychic reading. Khloe was accompanied by Kourtney and Kim, the latter of whom told Henry, “[Khloe] always tells me she’s psychic.” Khloe clarified, “I don’t think I can read her palm, but I have a very great intuition, and I feel energies and spirits really well.” The young clairvoyant then said he could feel a strong psychic energy within Khloe and Kourtney, but not so much with Kim.
Henry also revealed that he got an “odd feeling” when entering Khloe’s home. “This house has something in it,” he insisted. Henry then went on to describe the scent of a man’s tie. “What if it’s dad?” asked Khloe, whose father Robert died of cancer in 2003. “My dad had hundreds of ties, and I always smell his stuff,” she revealed. “I have a jacket and his shirts and I haven’t ever washed them, and I always smell them.”
After Kim returned to Los Angeles from New Orleans, where she was visiting friends and enjoying the cuisine, Kris expressed concern for a pregnant Kim, whose busy lifestyle could take a toll on her health. “Do you remember the last time what happened when you got all stressed out and were eating sugary stuff?” the matriarch asked her daughter. But Kim pointed out that she’s “way skinnier” and “way healthier” than during her first pregnancy.
Kris got even more upset when Kim revealed she planned on taking a trip to Paris for maternity fittings. Kourtney suggested she have the alterations done in Los Angeles, but Kim shot the idea down. “This is going to put you over the edge,” said Kris. “You’re trying to do everything that would make the normal non-pregnant person exhausted.” But Kim assured her, “I’ll be fine.” Kris added in a confessional, “Kim has been traveling a lot, and I don’t think she understands that, you know, she’s gotta take care of herself.”
When she returned home from Paris, Kim went to the doctor because her fingers and face were swelling up. After returning from a doctor’s appointment, Kim informed Kris, “They saw a little bit more fluid than normal in my placenta, which either could mean that I’m having a carb-intolerance, or I have diabetes.” Her mom becomes extremely worried saying, “Gosh, I hope you don’t have diabetes.”
Although Kim insisted, “I’m not going to think about that too much,” Kris revealed to her, “I had gestational diabetes with Kylie. It’s very serious. Your life is at stake.” In a confessional, Kim acknowledged the severity of the situation. “It is so frustrating that I could possibly have diabetes,” she said. “I think this is just a wake-up call that things, you know, just might not be going the way that I thought they were, and I just need to try to be healthy.” Later on, Kim called the doctor’s office to get the results of her blood test. She was informed that she didn’t have diabetes, to which she exhaled, “Thank God.”
Finally, hundreds of Kylie and Kendall’s friends and family members gathered together at the Kardashian home to surprise the girls with a graduation ceremony. Ryan Seacrest hosted the event, where both sisters put on a cap and gown. However, after Khloe complained that she never had a graduation party either, she was also given a gown and invited to join the ceremony. Kris then gave the commencement speech, expressing how proud she is of her children, and adding, “Keep reaching for the stars… You’ve already proven to all of us that you’re rock stars.”
