As she eagerly awaits the arrival of North West’s little brother in December, Kim Kardashian has made sure to share each stage of her second pregnancy with her fans – from her difficulties with being pregnant to the amount of weight she’s gained so far.

Now, the reality star has shared yet another candid update on her website and app, revealing that her son in the breech position and she has been trying everything she can to get him to turn.

Babies in the breech position – meaning the head is facing upwards instead of downwards – are typically delivered via C-section. Kim revealed her son was supposed to have turned on his own by 32 weeks, but he is still in breech.

As a result, the 35-year-old has been busy researching alternative options for the birth, although she said she would still have a C-section if that was the safest option for her son.

“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,” she wrote.

“They just don’t even teach it anymore.”

As she prepares for her delivery next month, Kim revealed the many ways she had tried to get her baby to turn on her own.

“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,” she said.

“I even started accupuncture where I burn moxa (mugwort) on my pinky toe every day! I am even attempting hypnosis.”

Kim’s next move is trying ECV (external cephalic version), a process which turns a baby from the breech position and is required to be carried out at the hospital.

“This whole delivery gives me anxiety, not gonna lie,” Kim wrote, asking her fans to wish her luck.

“I hope the baby turns and all goes well but I’m prepared for anything!”
