Kim Kardashian may need a C-section

The reality star continues to be very open about her pregnancy.

Most celebrities shy away from talking about their personal lives—especially something as private as giving birth. But not Kim Kardashian! First she Instagrammed about her morning sickness, then she revealed she hates being pregnant and now she's writing about how her baby is breech.

''His head is still up and it's supposed to be down," she wrote on her website. "He was supposed to turn by 32 weeks. So now, I will have to get a C-section.''

Kim is due to give birth to a baby boy in December. It's not uncommon for babies to be breech and usually around 34 to 36 weeks the baby turns around. But Kim is worried that because her baby is about seven pounds, he doesn't have enough room to turn. So she's trying everything she can to get her baby moving.

"I lay practically upside down three times a day for 15 minutes, she writes. "I play music in the right position and ice my belly in certain spots to get him to squirm out of the breech position. I even started acupuncture where I burn moxa (mugwort) on my pinky toe every day! I am even attempting hypnosis!"

I wonder if the baby likes Kanye's music—he better, for his own safety. Kanye does not take well to haters.

Kim is preparing for a possible C-section, but it's likely her doctor will recommend an external cephalic version (ECV) first. An ECV is when a doctor or midwife applies pressure to the mom's belly to help move the baby. The procedure is non-invasive, but can be quite painful for the mom.


Of course, Kim is quite nervous about a possible C-section.

''Please wish me luck and pray the baby turns!. This whole delivery gives me anxiety, not gonna lie. I hope the baby turns and all goes well but I'm prepared for anything!''

She's also prepared a request for Kanye—she would like a diamond chocker necklace as a push present. Oh, Kim! I guess in her world that is a totally normal gift. I would be happy with some nice chocolate.
