"Last pregnancy, I had a condition called preeclampsia, which is a serious condition you can get during pregnancy," she explained, adding that only five percent of women experience the condition. "It causes your body and face to swell, and that was very uncomfortable for me. I had early-onset preeclampsia and I had to deliver at 34 weeks, almost six weeks early."

"My placenta stayed attached inside my uterus, which is a condition called placenta accreta," Kim revealed. "This is a high-risk condition that happens when the placenta grows too deeply into the uterine wall."

"My doctor had to stick his entire arm in me and detach the placenta with his hand, scraping it away from my uterus with his fingernails," she added of the painful experience. "My mom was crying; she had never seen anything like this before."

"They say that this is what some women died from as a result of childbirth back in the day, without proper care. I'm so thankful that my doctor was able to catch this and address the issue immediately," Kim continued.

"After all of that, I still had a piece of placenta attached inside of me and I had to have surgery to remove it. Then I had another surgery to remove the scar tissue. This was all preventing me from getting pregnant the second time around," she said.

"However, with the issues I had last time, my risk of having preeclampsia and placenta accreta are increased and there's not a whole lot I can do to prevent it, so my anxiety is a little high leading up to my delivery. In a very rare case, I might need a hysterectomy after delivery if my condition is severe enough, but luckily my doctor doesn't think this will happen. So as time goes on, I am stressing out less and trying to go with the flow," she added.
