Kim KardashianIt seems that Kim Kardashian can't catch a break with this pregnancy. After going through a tortuous procedure to move her baby to the right delivery position (it worked), she is having an awful time now, courtesy of a sinus infection. Only those of us who have gone through it can imagine the pain and to deal with it without some serious painkillers. Well, that is just awful. Pobrecita.

Last week, Kim Kardashian let us know that her "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."

"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," she explained. "They gave me an IV with medication to relax my uterus, and then three doctors attempted to work together to turn the baby."

"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!" she wrote on her blog and it sounds scary. "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!!!"

Kim spent several hours in the hospital on November 24, due to excruciating pain. Maybe Braxton Hicks contractions! Let's hope that was all.

Kim had a serious complication during her previous pregnancy and she worries that it may happen again. It's called placenta accreta: "This is a high-risk condition that happens when the placenta grows too deeply into the uterine wall," she explained. The condition is dangerous because it can cause severe bleeding after pregnancy.

The due date is December 25th, who knows if her baby will wait. The truth is though, that the date is looming and they still don´t have a name. Maybe they will wait to see if what he looks like.
