Kim Kardashian West was trying hard to avoid a C-section, and it looks as if she might have succeeded.
In a pregnancy update post on her website (which is produced my mom.me parent company Whalerock Industries), West revealed that she "underwent a procedure called an ECV (External Cephalic Version, or a Version), which is done to manually turn the baby from a breech position to a head-down position."
As the 35-year-old reality star noted in her previous update, she had been doing everything from icing her belly to lying nearly upside down to get her then-7-pound unborn son to turn.
What she didn't want to do, however, was undergo a C-section, unless the situation was dire.
"Obviously, if it's an emergency and for the safety of my son, I will get a C-section," she wrote on her site, "but if I don't need one, I'd rather not."
Luckily, according to WebMD, the Version procedure is considered low-risk if there is frequent fetal and maternal monitoring. The procedure, though, is not without discomfort.
"They don't give you any pain medication, and let me tell you: This was soooooo painful. Probably more painful than childbirth," West wrote.
"BUT it worked!!!"
West, who is already mom to 2-year-old daughter North, is due to give birth this month.
