Kim Kardashian was so concerned about the pregnancy complication preeclampsia that she hired a surrogate to carry her third child, Chicago West. Former reality star Kenya Moore's fans are concerned she might be diagnosed with the disorder after her dramatic weight gain.

Moore, 47, is expecting her first child with husband, restauranteur Marc Daly.

On Wednesday, Moore shared an image of her growing baby bump on In the comments of another photo, she wrote “That baby is all the way out there now. “@Kandi still have a few months to go and I weigh 200 lbs!!!”

Moore's fans expressed concern for her, since most of her weight gain is water.

This post was edited to add this photo of Moore for comparison. The photo is dated June 30, 2017.

Doctors say women over age 35 are at highest risk for complications during pregnancy.

Pregnant women retain water, especially in the late 2nd or early 3rd trimester. Excessive weight (water) gain in the torso and arms and legs could be linked to preeclampsia.

Preeclampsia is a potentially deadly complication that occurs any time after the 20th week of pregnancy. The condition is associated with high blood pressure and weight gain.

There is no cure for preeclampsia, but doctors may induce early labor or terminate the pregnancy to save the mother's life.

Other risk factors for preeclampsia include obesity, high blood pressure and gestational diabetes.

Signs and symptoms of preeclampsia include headache, blurred vision, nausea and vomiting, and swelling (edema), shortness of breath, lower back pain, abdominal pain, and spilling protein in the urine (proteinuria).

  • MrsHBC

    I’m so happy for Kenya. I believe she is going to be a great Mom. Everyone deserves happiness. I pray for a healthy baby & easy delivery.

  • Keekz

    She looks good. She seems to be carrying that 200 lbs in her breast and stomach, like a normal pregnant woman. Hell, I was a beluga whale. She looks fine.

  • Nyla x

    I'm so happy for her. Love and family found her late in life, but it's so good to see her glowing in it. ?

  • supastar

    It seems as though she been pregnant forever!

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    I'm happy and proud of her, I hope she shares her journey on RHOA this season, if not, I wont be watching.

  • Bee jaay Cee

    I was tiny and gained 40-60 lbs with both of my daughters but had no medical conditions and was just fine. Lost the weight quickly too.

  • the guest

    Kenya Moore looks FABULOUS and most of all HAPPY.

    I’m so happy for her.

  • dru and neil

    Her belly looks just like mine did, a little high, I felt totally stuffed.

  • imright

    her stomach is shaped oddly because of bad lipo

  • Ladyshopper

  • Sdot33

    I'm so glad she left that ratchet show?

  • Dem Moore

    Im happy for her, I hope she can give that child the love her mother was to coward to give to her.

  • Coy little wink

    Whats dramatic about it? She's all belly and boobs...looks happy and healthy

  • Waya Hedia

    Back in the day they used to just call this 'pregnancy'.

  • Waya Hedia

    Neil? :)

  • Alextra Ballard

    Kenya llooks good,happy and content. I hope everything is well with her!

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    WOW is Kenya really 47 she looks wonderful. Congrats on your blessing miss lady. She's glowing!!!!

  • dontgetblocked

    I hope all goes well. I can't imagine the pain of having to sit at family events with my mother refused to acknowledge my existence and other family members allowed it to happen. She deserves happiness.

  • JustB

    Some expectant mothers literally eat for two

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    Exactly. She needs to know what unconditional love feels like. I didn't know how deep I could love someone until I had my babies. I'm so happy for her.

  • Rayne

    She is too damn cute! I love pregnant clean nice looking well kept women ? not those scarf pajama wearing females

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    It wouldn't be Auntie if she didn't try to throw shade. Even when the shade is invisible she steady throwing ish!

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil


  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Welp... then I'm done. Hopefully she'll get her own show bc im really interested to see her life as a mom and wife, without all the sabotage and hating that goes on RHOA.

  • Rayne

    I only gained 29lbs. I walked my ass off at work tho. It’s gone now but my behind is still voluptuous ???

  • Waya Hedia

    I think her posts are often misconstrued by readers here. But when it comes to 'throwing shade' I think the regulars here are the pros, compared to her. Even when she's just putting forth factual information, they rant on her for it. As if they need to be coddled and protected or something.

  • iWasteTime

    I did lol!
    And sometimes, in twos!

  • Coy little wink

    Congrats! When did you have your baby? My how time flies...

  • CookieMobster

    Let me tell you THIS, when I was preggo I was in Wal-Mart and this old man was kinda popping up every department I went to. Well, finally he said, "ma'am you are so beautiful." I said Thank you and turned to walk away.... He proceeded to follow me and said "tell me darling are you going to nurse that baby? That is so sexy, there is nothing sexier than a woman nursing a child" I was like eeeewwww and some what ran off.... The F%@k?

  • Faithz

    She’s beautiful.

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    I agree for the most part! The shade I was referring to was the statement regarding her weight gain. She doesn't look like she's gained anything but a baby bump. Women gain weight when they're pregnant. That's common knowledge.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Right! I swear her and Janet had the longest pregnancies everrrr! Keep in mind, she did announce it when she was only like 2 weeks as opposed to announcing at 3 months like everyone usually does.

  • Waya Hedia

    I understand. But I really didn't see a definitive statement or opinion on her weight gain from Sandra. Am I missin' something?

  • Malcom Flex

    She always looks good, feminine.

  • Dollface

    What wait gain? Kenya is so tall I'm sure her standard weight is about 160+ so her weighing 200 is nothing.

  • justlooking

    that clean part made me chuckle.


    Exactly my thoughts! She looks nowhere near 200lbs.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    Morgan Freeman shops at your Walmort?!

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Kenya looks good...she is tall so 200lb aint shit on somebody over 5 ft 9...

  • CookieMobster

    Yes but his face moles shop at the one across town....

  • Yui

  • Tee Bullock

  • A D N

  • Dahl

  • Trace da Ace

  • Trace da Ace

    damn you!!!!! LMBAO!!!! I cannot!!!!! damn near spit at my damn monitor!!!

  • Quitedeliteful

    She looks good to me. I don't know how far along she is but she doesn't seem really puffy and swollen. She is 47. I'm sure her pregnancy will be different than that of a 20 tear old. I imagine she would gain a substantial amount of weight but she's gonna lose it and be just fine for sure.

  • pecancandy

    She looks beautiful, I hope it is a girl!

  • hi-liter

  • Parent

    I'm happy for her! She will be a great mother considering her mother wasn't shit for the way she treated her.
