Kim Kardashian wants you to know that his whole pregnancy business isn't as easy as, say, tweeting pictures of the 500 pairs of shoes she wore last week.

Actually, says the Huffington Post, it's way harder than she thought it would be.

The reality star, 32, stepped out on the red carpet for the first time since confirming she's expecting a baby with boyfriend Kanye West and said that although she has no morning sickness, she's definitely adjusting to "the growing pains."

"I wouldn't say that it's been easy," Kim told ET Online at the New Year's Eve event at 1OAK Nightclub at the Mirage in Las Vegas. "When people say pregnancy is fun and they love it I would have to disagree. I think from this stage on it does become easier, but it's adjusting" she added.

Keep in my that she's only about 12 weeks along, reports say. It will not be getting easier.

"Even my sister has made it look easy, but it's not as easy as people think," Kim continued, referring to Kourtney Kardashian's pregnancies. "It's a little painful. ... But I heard it's all worth it, so I'm looking forward to that."

She added, "I feel really good. This new year is about being happy and being healthy and that's what I plan on doing."





Gulp!
