Keeping Up with the Kardashians Recap: Kris' Mom Is Sick and Kourtney Witnesses a Water Birth

Big life changes are happening this week on Keeping Up with the Kardashians!

Starting with Bruce Jenner, whose habit of flailing his arms in his sleep—maybe remembering all of those Olympic glory days?—is a bit of an issue for his wifey, Kris Jenner.

"You beat the sh*t out of me in the middle of the night with your arm again," Kris tells him.

Ouch! Well, lucky for Kris, she's headed out of town and can get a break from all those pesky sleep flails.

Check out Kim Kardashian as Sophia Loren!

But just where is Mrs. Jenner headed? Down to San Diego to visit her mother, Mary Joe (aka Mj), with daughters Kim Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian-Odom, Kourtney Kardashian and little Mason Disick.

Mj, a breast and colon cancer survivor hasn't been feeling well, and the girls decide to pay her a long overdue visit! What great granddaughters, right?!

Only problem? Getting Kris on board with the trip isn't exactly a walk in the park.

"It's probably hard for my mom to see her mom getting older," Kourtney says, "but that doesn't mean you shouldn't make time for them."

See what Kim Kardashian and Kanye West did on their date night!

Kris eventually agrees to the trip, if a little reluctantly, but once they arrive says, "I think living in L.A. sometimes allows me to put my head in the sand and not really deal with the reality of my mom being by herself, not always feeling 100 percent."

But, after a trip to the San Diego Zoo stirs up memories from childhood and time spent with Mj, Kris decides to change her attitude toward her mother. She tells her mom that she wants to come down more often—something that Mj is thrilled to hear!

"Time is not going to stand still for me, or for any of us," Kris realizes. "We have to savor each and every moment that we can."

That's right, Kris!

And Bruce has decided not to waste another minute as the man who throws punches in his sleep. So, with the help of his son, Brandon Jenner, Bruce sneaks out of the house and heads to a sleep specialist, where he puts on pjs, gets hooked up with electrodes and studied by a team of scientists.

After a night of monitored sleep, the results are in: there's not much to do about the sleep punches. That is, unless you're crafty like Bruce! The former Olympian buys a sling for his arm, wears it to bed, and is back on Kris' good side.

Meanwhile, at Kourtney and Scott Disick's, the soon-to-be-dad is starting to get freaked out by all of the birthing methods Kourtney is researching.

"I don't want to be thinking about kids coming out of that little secret place that I like to go to when I'm lonely at night," Scott says of his lady's, er, place. "I want to think of it as my little playground."

With that in mind, Kourtney recruits Khloé to come with her to watch a water birth, much to Khloé's dismay.

As the birth gets underway, Khloé starts cleaning the house with nervous energy, "Kourtney is front dead center of this woman's puss," as Khloé puts it, and the woman giving birth is…well… screaming her head off.

"I just don't think that a water birth is what I want to do now," Kourtney says after the traumatic experience. "Even though I think that the experience at home would be amazing, when it's your childs life that's involved I just don't think I would take that risk."
