Kim thanked the surrogate, who gave her the “the greatest gift one could give,” but as it turns out the surrogate had some conditions of her own. These things were agreed upon at the beginning of the process, wherein the yet unidentified woman had requested that things go “her own way.”
According to a source who spoke with Heat magazine, “The surrogate has done things her way. That was how everything was agreed up front.” And whoever knows Kim knows that she was not too happy about this.

According to the sources, “while they aren’t arguing about it, Kim and Kanye have privately found it a struggle not being able to put their own touches on the delivery.”
The biggest challenge about the pregnancy was getting banned from the delivery room so the surrogate would be more comfortable.
Kim has also spoken about the lack of control claiming that respecting the surrogate’s way was more difficult than the natural way.

“Anyone that says or thinks it’s just the easy way out is completely wrong. I think it’s so much harder to go through it this way, because you’re not really in control and obviously you pick someone that you completely trust and that you have a really good bond and relationship with but still… knowing that I was able to carry my first two babies and not my baby now… That is hard for me,” she said during an interview with ET.
She went further in saying, “It is definitely a harder experience than I anticipated, just in the control area.”
And despite how much she hated being pregnant, Kim admits that she would rather have done it herself if she could.
“That inner struggle is hard,” she related.

Based on some interviews she claimed that she has been very respectful of her surrogate and her wishes.
She told the ladies of The Real, “You could do it totally anonymously. You could go that route, and I just felt like I wanted…whoever is carrying my baby… Like what if they weren’t a fan of me or my husband. And, what if they didn’t want to be carrying our baby?”

But it turned out that she had watched her reality show and was happy to carry Kim’s baby.
“She was really proud to do it and really excited,” Kim revealed.
