Update, 12/1: Kim has provided us with yet another update on her pregnancy, this time sharing some good news: Her baby is no longer in the breech position, which means she's less at risk for needing a C-section. 'This weekend, I checked into the hospital and 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,' Kim wrote on her website this morning.
'They gave me an IV with medication to relax my uterus, and then three doctors attempted to work together to turn the baby,' she continued. 'There was a risk that my water might break or the baby's heart rate could drop—in which case, an emergency C-section would then take place. I went in with my sisters and my husband. I was prepared for it all!'
But the experience wasn't just scary, according to Kim, it was painful. 'They don't give you any pain medication, and let me tell you: This was soooooo painful. Probably more painful than childbirth. BUT it worked!!!' She wrote. 'My baby is in the right position and it feels so good to not have the stress of thinking I need a C-section.'
We're glad to hear it all went well – and that the new-mom-to-be is feeling better, judging by the very funny way she shared the news with us:
