She endured cruel taunts relating to her body and shape while expecting daughter, North, now two-years-old.
And although this time Kim Kardashian is determined to have a healthier pregnancy, she's happy to admit that there's one thing she can do nothing about: her changing face.
"No I don't do fillers or botox when pregnant like some tabloids are reporting," she explained in an Instagram snap she posted this evening.
"You would have to be really sick to endanger your child like that!"
She added: "Anyone who has been pregnant or gained weight knows your face totally changes! My nose gets bigger, cheeks fuller and my lips swell up.
"The challenge is trying to adjust the make up to make me feel normal."
The accompanying image is breathtaking: Kim, 34, appears with tousled hair around her shoulders, while she wears minimal make-up. Seemingly posing topless, the skin around her decollage has a gorgeous, dewy appearance.
In the same post, the reality TV star also revealed that she will unveil her top tips for expert makeup while pregnant in a forthcoming post on kimkardashianwest.com, a brand new website which will be launched shortly.
The post has been created in conjunction with Hrush Achemyan, a leading LA-based makeup artist who regularly works with the entire Kardashian-Jenner clan.
Kim, the wife of rapper Kanye West, is currently four months pregnant with their second child, a son.
