“The plan was to freeze my eggs, ’cause all the doctors said, ‘You should freeze your eggs.’ But what I learned was, when you’re on the pill and you’re going to check any of your egg count, big mistake, just don’t do that. The pill is supposed to suppress all of that. So you cannot know if you’re really supposed to do any of that until you’re really off the pill.”

“It was all new territory to me and I was so scared. And, literally, I thought I had a miscarriage, ’cause I was really heavily bleeding and in so much pain in Miami. Went in, ’cause you have to go and do like a D&C (dilation and curettage) to clean out your miscarriage.”

And at first, her fear was confirmed during her initial doctor visit. “There was no heartbeat. ‘Oh, you had a miscarriage,'” her doctor told her. The beauty mogul went home then came back on Thanksgiving Day 2012.

That’s when they found North’s heartbeat again. “We ended up obviously having North, and I had a really bad pregnancy, I had preeclampsia, I delivered six weeks early, she was four pounds and I had something called placenta accreta, where the placenta grows inside your uterus.” And her second pregnancy wasn’t easy either.
