Kim Kardashian’s doctor ‘gives stress warning’

Kim Kardashian’s doctor has apparently warned the stress of her divorce could put her unborn baby at risk.

The reality TV star wed basketball player Kris Humphries in 2011 but they split up after just 72 days of marriage, after Kim filed for divorce.

Kim is now dating rapper Kanye West and at the end of last year they announced they were expecting their first child together.

With the on-going stress of her legal battle with Kris, the 32-year-old’s doctor has apparently advised her to take it easy, or it could impact the foetus.

TMZ reports Kim called her physician in the middle of the night several days ago as she was experiencing “severe pains”.

According to the website, the medical expert examined her but concluded most of her symptoms were stress-related.

Sources claim the only “significant stress” in the star’s life is her divorce and apparently shortly before a meeting with her lawyer on Tuesday, Kim’s pains struck again.

TMZ writes the doctor warned the pregnant brunette to manage her stress or else there could be “long-term effects” for her child.

The specialist reportedly didn’t elaborate, but Kim was left “freaked out” and worrying her baby could be at risk.

Kim’s sister Khloé has made no secret of her dislike for Kris.

"I don't know how she's so calm about this. He's suing her for an annulment. The only way to legally get an annulment is if there's some type of fraud involved. So Kris said Kim defrauded him to marry her for press… If you wanted to marry someone just for press, wouldn't you have picked someone that was actually popular?" Khloé fumed on an episode of reality show Kourtney & Kim Take Miami.
