During Thursday’s episode of The Kardashians, Kourtney Kardashian opened up to mom Kris Jenner about wanting to have a child with Travis Barker.
However, things were not going as planned for Kourtney Kardashian, who revealed that she is currently facing complications in her IVF journey.
During a visit to Kourtney Kardashian’s home, Kris sat down with her eldest daughter and asked how her doctor’s appointments were going.
“Awful,” Kourtney Kardashian responded before elaborating in a confessional. “Travis and I want to have a baby, so my doctor took us down this road of doing IVF, and it hasn’t been the most amazing experience.”
Speaking to her mom, Kourtney Kardashian continued, “Every single person on social media is always like, ‘Kourtney’s pregnant, Kourtney’s pregnant, Kourtney’s gained so much weight.’ I’m like, it’s so rude to comment on people when you have no idea what they’re actually going through.”
“The medication that they’ve been giving me, they put me into menopause,” she added.
“Based off of what? A drug?” Kris asked.
“Yes,” said Kourtney. “The medication basically put me into depression.”
In a confessional, the Poosh founder added: “I think because I’m so clean and careful with what I put into my body, it’s just having the complete opposite reaction and is working as a contraceptive instead of helping us.”
The news shocked Kris, who told her daughter, “I feel like I’ve never seen you happier, so the depression thing surprises me.”
“And I have everything in the world to be happy about,” Kourtney responded. “I just feel a little bit off. I’m super moody and hormonal. Like, I’m a lunatic half the time.”
“I got pregnant in 1994 and had a miscarriage and my body entirely shut down,” she said. “It stopped making anything. I was moody and depressed and bloated, didn’t feel well. Everything you just described, the exact same thing happened.”
In a confessional, Kris added, “Even though Kourtney has three beautiful children, it doesn’t make it hurt any less if you’re trying to have a baby and you’ve been struggling.”
Kourtney Kardashian agreed, explaining that she and Travis Barker “want it so badly” because “we want to make something together.”
“Yeah, of course,” Kris responded. “You wanna bring your own baby, your own love into the world. You both know exactly how it feels to have a child and how to bring a child into the world, and now you want to do it with the love of your life.”
“You’ll have a beautiful baby, probably a year from now,” she confidently added. “We’ll be sitting right here.”
“God willing,” Kourtney Kardashian said.
