Kenya Moore was on Doctor Oz today to talk about her near death experience while delivering her child. It was mostly the same version of the story she has told us already. She was at home and realized she had gained 17 pounds in a week and called the doctor about the swelling. She was told to come straight to the hospital. Marc was in New York, so her aunt came to take her. Marc caught the first flight home and met her at the hospital. She said she was given an epidural and at one point in the three hour C-section, she woke up and was trying to talk and no one could hear her. She thought she had died. Dr. Oz calls it an out of body experience and he says it was “almost like she crossed over.” She seemed to not be aware that she was given general anesthesia.
The doctor had problems cutting into her uterus due to fibroids and scars from previous surgeries to remove fibroids. She could not get to the baby. Then there was the whole part about how she had to be cut both horizontally and vertically before they could pop the baby out. Kenya lost a lot of blood but she had told the doctor she did not want a blood transfusion. Presumably, because she was raised in the Jehovah’ Witness faith. The doctor was worried they would lose her with the heavy blood loss. Kenya says the baby girl screamed a lot for such a small five-pound baby. Dr. Oz asked how premature she was. Kenya replied “Five and a half weeks.”
Kenya says Brooklyn is fantastic, she’s lifting her head and makes “all these faces.” Kenya already thinks she is advanced for her age. She was five weeks old when this show was filmed.
When Kenya walked out in a short red dress her butt was quite large. The lay of the dress kind of minimized the waist but there was still pregnancy weight there. Dr. Oz had her stand up in front of a screen to talk about the possible things that could have killed her during child birth and she kept her arms crossed over her mid region. She looked beautiful and very happy. She was still quite full in the face. During the second half of the show, Dr. Oz is going to talk to her about her “very controversial snapback.” This should be interesting.
Kenya says she gained 75 pounds during the pregnancy. She says she lost forty pound the first week because most of her weight was water weight from the preeclampsia. She said after two weeks her tummy was flat again. And that’s the whole story. I wish I would have known this was on in time to tell you guys to watch it. I only taped it because I saw a commercial that Casey Anthony’s parents would be on to discuss his near fatal car crash and had no idea she was on.
Dr. Oz points out that she was not on this season of RHOA and she says, “I don’t know how I could have done it.” When he asks if she will be back she says, ” I say never say never.”
