People are fuming at Khloé K for going to Japan while heavily pregnant – but she’s having none of it

Cape Town - Khloé Kardashian has no time for haters.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star (33) recently embarked on an all-girls trip to Japan with sisters Kim and Kourtney – and she wasted no time letting naysayers know her baby was strong and healthy.

With her due date about a month away, the mom-to-be has been criticised on social media for the trip, People reports.

“Why would you fly 17 hours over an ocean at 8 months???” one fan wrote.

“Girl you took a big risk, you’re brave to be flying across the world being 8 months pregnant,” another commented on Khloe’s tweet about being jetlagged.

“l'm surprised Tristan didn't put his foot down on this.”

According to Health24, it’s safe to travel by plane in your first and second trimester – provided there are no complications with your pregnancy. 

However, most airlines won’t let women in their third trimester travel in case they go into labour early.

Khloé simply ignored the negative tweets, instead taking to Instagram to share a sultry shot of her cradling her burgeoning bump while wearing a sparkling silver mini dress.

Comments poured in on the post and Khloé took the time to reply a handful of fans.

“I am so thankful that after my first trimester my pregnancy has been so healthy and strong!” she told one fan.

To another, she commented on how painful the early days of her pregnancy were, due to side effects of the progesterone pills.

“I didn’t realise how common that was until the [KUWTK] episode came out. It’s good to not feel alone.”

Unfortunately for Khlo, the criticism she faced for travelling while pregnant wasn’t the only hate.

Her snap generated a string of comments on – of all things – how she’s cradling her bump, The Mirror reports.

The blonde beauty wasn’t keen on keeping mum on this issue though, taking to Twitter to clap back.

"People are very opinionated about my bump. I choose to cradle my bump because it’s MINE.

"I've waited for this VERY short moment for YEARS. I have only months to enjoy this phase in my life, so I will touch my bump and love my bump as often as I choose. Mommy loves you baby."

The tot – widely rumoured to be a girl – will be Khloé’s first child with basketball ace Tristan Thompson (26).
