Kim K Says Her Baby Is Breech, But She Doesn't Want A C-Section
Kim Kardashian West recently announced her second baby will be delivered sooner than we thought.
A source confirmed to Us Weekly we can expect Kim to go into labor sometime around Thanksgiving.
That means it really can be any day now.
The "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star also shared on her website her baby is breech and she could possibly need a C-section.
In a blog post titled "Heads Up!," Kim said,
I'm writing this blog while up at 4 A.M., a little anxious for my delivery as I'm entering into my 36th week of pregnancy. I've surrendered to the placenta issues and actually haven't been thinking too deeply about them lately. However, my latest concern is that my baby is breech, meaning he's in the wrong position for childbirth. His head is still up and it's supposed to be down. He was supposed to turn by 32 weeks. So now, I will have to get a C-section. Or so I thought!
Kim was actually able to find an alternative to a C-section. She added,
I've learned that you actually can deliver a breech baby and I feel fortunate that my doctor Paul Crane is one of the few doctors that still does this. They just don't even teach it anymore. Paul was my mom's doctor and delivered me! So I know I'm in the best care.
Since learning this, Kim has been doing what she can to help get her baby boy to turn.
She has been seeing a pregnancy chiropractor, lying upside down multiple times a day, playing music for her baby and icing her belly.
She apparently even started acupuncture and is open to hypnosis as well.
In the blog she also said,
Obviously, if it's an emergency and for the safety of my son, I will get a C-section—but if I don't need one, I'd rather not.
Pregnancy has been quite difficult for the star, so we wish her a safe and happy delivery.
The whole world is just ready to welcome her new baby boy into the world. North, I hope you're ready to be a big sister!
