Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom: Trouble In Baby-Making Paradise?
a blog by Claire, October 25, 2012
Are Khloe Kardashian and husband Lamar Odom seeing eye to eye on the road to parenthood?
It’s no secret that Khloe Kardashian has babies on the brain. The star has been vocal about her fertility struggles, revealing in the September 9 episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians that she was not ovulating. In that same episode, big sister Kim accompanied Khloe on a visit to a Los Angeles area fertility clinic. Thirty-two year old Kim received fertility testing herself and considered egg freezing to preserve her fertility- an important thing to consider in her thirties, as fertility declines with age, more rapidly as women approach forty.
Just last year, Khloe Kardashian told the TODAY show: "It's so hard. I never knew about ovulation and the limited amount of time you have to get pregnant . . . No one ever taught me that". In fact, many women Khloe's age are not aware that they have just a 20% chance of conceiving each month if they ovulate regularly! Planning for a baby when you're dealing with infertility can evoke feelings of blame, failure, and self-doubt.
Sources have said the emotional strain of infertility is just too much for Kardashian and Odom. Odom doesn’t feel the same pressure to become a parent that Khloe does. “He has kids already from a previous relationship, so he’s not dying to have more”, one source revealed. This would be a first pregnancy for Kardashian who loves being an aunt to sister Kourtney's children, but longs for the day she will have her own.
Rumors are now circulating that Kardashian has put baby making on hold while she prepares for her co-host gig on The X Factor. Coincidence or attempt to disguise the couples' conflicting views? Either way, we urge Khloe Kardashian to keep her chin up and not to hit snooze on her biological clock much longer!
