Although getting pregnant wasn't difficult, Kris found being pregnant exponentially harder than she remembered. "I was nauseated all the time, so it was hard," she says. "I was really tired."
One of the benefits of living in Chicago while carrying Sara and Bill's baby was that Kris didn't care how people reacted to her appearance. "I think the lucky part was I wasn't at home," Kris says. "People in Chicago didn't know me."
Kris says she decided not to tell many friends in Virginia either. "I was in early first trimester really before I left, and I wasn't showing when I was in Virginia. [So we told] a few friends that I see every day," Kris says. "They were pretty incredulous at first. ... Then they were worried."
