Kim wrote on her website (via Us Weekly):
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!”
However, she might not need a C-section.
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.”
Oh, I haven’t heard the best things about those types of deliveries. It’s hard enough to push out a baby that’s in the correct position! Meanwhile, Kim is doing what she can to turn her little guy around.
Since my baby is pretty big—over 7 pounds—maybe he’s just too big at this point but I started intensive chiropractic work with Dr. Elliot Berlin. He is ‘the’ pregnancy chiropractor! I’ve learned so much from my few sessions with him. I have been doing everything I can to try to turn the baby. I lay practically upside down three times a day for 15 minutes. 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!”
Yeah, she really is trying everything ;). Even Kris Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian can’t help her this time.
It’s been hard because I usually go to my mom or Kourtney for baby and pregnancy advice, but they both—with nine total pregnancies!—have never experienced one of these crazy things. I’m doing the research myself and want to share with you what I know. 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.”
That’s understandable. A C-section is major surgery, after all. She has to recover from that and wouldn’t be able to pick up Nori for a month. Hopefully it all works out. The most important thing, though, is that Kim is okay, and she delivers a healthy baby boy. However, that happens, let that be the outcome.
