The reality star had often expressed that this pregnancy was “bittersweet” and something that the couple struggled with at first.  “To allow somebody to carry my child inside of them? It was a tough decision to make … I just feel like this whole situation is strange,” Kandi expressed. “I don’t get to be excited about the first kick. I don’t get to be excited about ‘Oh, not my baby bump is showing.’ I don’t get to be excited even about my boobs filling up with milk,” she continued. “You have this guilt and sadness. So, it’s a joyous, yet interesting experience.”

When we were going through the IVF process, I did have a couple of friends who had don’t it, so, you know, I could talk to them, but this is a situation where I don’t have anybody I can talk to,” Kandi said.
