Kim Kardashian West's baby may not be out into the world yet, but she's already asking him to do something for her: Turn around!
In a new blog post on her subscribers-only app, the soon-to-be mother-of-two revealed that her baby is breech and she's quite nervous about her delivery. In admitting her fear, she said she's "surrendered to the placenta issues," but that her current concern is that her baby is in the wrong position for childbirth: His head is still facing upwards, and he was supposed to turn by 32 weeks.
Kim has previously indicated that her delivery has been listed as "high risk."
Although breech babies are typically delivered via C-section, Kim is hoping to avoid that.
"As I lay awake late at night, researching, 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," she wrote of her doctor, who, incidentally also delivered Kim as a baby.
She continued, "I found it very interesting that I do have this option to deliver a breech baby as opposed to just jumping into a C-section. 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."
Kim was originally scheduled to be due around Christmas, but last week it was reported that her due date had been moved up a month because of health concerns.
"I guess 4 percent of women are faced with [breech babies] — so, lucky me!," she wrote. "It's been hard because I usually go to my mom or [my sister] Kourtney [Kardashian] for baby and pregnancy advice, but they both -- with nine total pregnancies! -- have never experienced one of these crazy things."
Kim said she's been doing everything within her power to turn her baby boy, but she admitted that he's "just too big at this point."
"I lay practically upside down three times a day for 15 minutes," she said. "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 accupuncture where I burn moxa (mugwort) on my pinky toe every day! I am even attempting hypnosis!"
She asked her app subscribers to wish her luck and pray that the baby turns.
"This whole delivery gives me anxiety, not gonna lie," she said. "I hope the baby turns and all goes well but I'm prepared for anything!"
