Kardashian, 34, who is expecting her second child with husband Kanye West, faced fertility challenges to conceive again, reported Glamour magazine.
"I didn't know that I was going to be so open with (my fertility challenges). It's been really emotional. One doctor told me I would need my uterus removed after I had another baby I could only have one more. One was like, 'You should get a surrogate.' The other one was like, 'Oh, no, you'll be fine.'
"Then I called my doctor, and he's like, 'You know what? I believe -- we'll get through it.' There are definitely times when I walked out (of the doctor's office) hysterically crying, and other times when I was like, 'Okay, everything's looking good, it's going to be this month!' The waiting and waiting has been a roller coaster," she said.
The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star, known for her love for spotlight, said her daughter North's birth in 2013 has made her reclusive. "I'm a completely different person. I don't know if it's growing up or being with Kanye, who's more private, but I try and live my off time as privately as possible. I used to enjoy the spotlight.
If I had a day off from filming, I didn't know what to do. Now I enjoy my family time so much, there is this sense of, if it all went away, and I was just a mom, I would love my life," she said. "(Motherhood) really changes you. When I found out I was pregnant (with North), I was going through an awful divorce, Kanye and I had just been dating for seven months -- granted, we knew each other for a decade -- and I was like, 'I can't do this.
It's not the right time.' But then I figured, If I'm in my thirties and I'm not ready, I'll never be ready. So it's been the biggest lesson, and the biggest joy of my life."
