Media reports have said thatKim Kardashian became “sick” late in pregnancy, and that she was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Hospital for “complications,” where she delivered her daughter the next day, reportedly a few weeks early.

Now People magazine (viaThe Daily News) is reporting that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star may delivered prematurely because she suffered from preeclampsia, a condition that can be life-threatening to mom and baby. Symptoms include hypertension, rapid weight gain, headaches, and swelling, especially in your hands and face. Usually delivering the baby is the only cure.
