Kim Kardashian West's Baby Is Breech and She Doesn't Want a C-Section

Kim Kardashian West is getting even more anxious.

The pregnant mom of one revealed in a post on her website and app that she's in her 36th week of pregnancy and her unborn son is in the breech position.

"His head is still up and it's supposed to be down," she writes. "He was supposed to turn by 32 weeks. So now, I will have to get a C-section. Or so I thought!"

Turns out, Kardashian West has been researching breech births and her doctor "is one of the few doctors that still does this."

In the meantime, she's doing everything she can to turn her baby, who now weighs more than 7 pounds in-utero.

"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."

This isn't the first pregnancy challenge that Kardashian West has faced. While pregnant with now 2-year-old daughter North, the 35-year-old "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star admitted to experiencing morning sickness and preeclampsia.

That said, Kardashian West writes that ultimately she wants to do what's best for her unborn baby.

"Obviously, if it's an emergency and for the safety of my son, I will get a C-section," she writes, "but if I don't need one, I'd rather not."
