The Kardashian family sat down for a 10th Anniversary Special last night on E!, and while Kylie didn't announce (opens in new tab) her pregnancy, Kim talked openly about getting pregnant with North West—and revealed that she initially thought she'd had a miscarriage:

"I was so scared, I was having so much pain. I mean, at one point I thought I had a miscarriage—I was pretty certain about it," Kim told Ryan Seacrest (opens in new tab). "I didn't know what was going on. I flew all the way home on Thanksgiving and the doctor told me, 'There's no heartbeat, you had a miscarriage. Let's get through it, come in after Thanksgiving dinner.'"

Kim went in that morning and the doctor told her there was, in fact, a heartbeat: "I was like, 'Oh my God, this is a sign.' It was such an emotional Thanksgiving, and Kourtney was the only one that knew about it. Her and Kanye, because we were in Miami living together."

Kim is currently said to be expecting (opens in new tab) another child via surrogate, due this coming January.
