"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," the 35-year-old explained. "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."
While this is certainly good news for what has thus far been a challenging pregnancy, the expecting mama is not in the clear yet. Kim revealed that she has the flu and sinus infection while posting a picture of her continuously growing bump.
"I'm going to have [my daughter] North have a sleepover with her cousins for the next two days so I can really sleep and get better," Kim said. "She loves sleepovers and I really need this time to get better."
In addition to the medical update, Kim also shared a sexy, stripped down pre-pregnancy photoshoot she did with photographer Kesler Tran, saying, "I did a desert photo shoot just knowing I was trying to get pregnant soon and wanted to savor this moment!"
"We went out to the desert and just had fun and shot this so fast. We ate KFC Fried Chicken on the way there and got In-N-Out Burger and donuts on the way home," she added. "I love how it all came out!"
In November, Kim reportedly moved up her due date for baby number two from his original planned Christmas Day arrival due to health concerns, including gestational diabetes. It's been a stressful pregnancy for Kim, and the whole thing has her mom, Kris Jenner, very worried as well.
