On this week's episode, Kim had to go in for surgery, which would hopefully increase her chances of getting pregnant again. Before the procedure, a nervous Kim asked the doctor if she would be able to get pregnant.
"You can still get pregnant, but it does expose you to risks during the pregnancy," the doctor informed her. "If I can't guarantee that and surrogacy is the only way to give you a comfortable pregnancy and a nice healthy baby, we'll talk about that."
During a dinner with sister Kendall Jenner, Kim contemplated the idea and expressed her concerns about essentially having a stranger carry her child. "What if they're like a lunatic? I'm going to have to have security around them. What if they run off with my baby and go raise my baby in a different country?" she wondered out loud.
When the option is brought up again, Kris Jenner comes up with what seems like a viable solution, suggesting Kourtney Kardashian. "Kourtney would probably do it," Kris suggests, after Kim says she "wouldn't dare" ask anyone to do that.
Kourtney has said that she enjoys being pregnant, but that's been when she's carrying her own kids. That would be a huge sacrifice, but Kourtney DID offer to do that for Khloe a few years ago, so that's probably why Kris brought it up as an option for Kim.
At this point, it seems that Kim isn't ready to commit to surrogacy just yet, "To have a surrogate to me is really scary," she confessed to the camera. "I don't want one, I don't want that to be my reality."
Maybe it won't have to be. We'll keep you posted!
