Kim Kardashian is less than one month away from her due date, but she is experiencing some pre-labor problems. While this is an exciting time for Kim and her husband, Kanye West, the reality star recently revealed that her baby is breech. According to Us Weekly, Kim shared the news with her fans by way of her blog.

"I'm writing this blog while up at 4 A.M., a little anxious for my delivery as I'm entering into my 36th week of pregnancy. I've surrendered to the placenta issues and actually haven't been thinking too deeply about them lately. However, my 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. Or so I thought!" Kim wrote.

Kardashian is going through what many other women go through and she's worried, just like any other mom-to-be would be. Kim, of course, has a dedicated team of medical professionals that are giving her tips on how to get her baby boy to turn on his own. Perhaps other moms out there can relate to some of these things.

"I have been doing everything I can to try to turn the baby. 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. I even started acupuncture where I burn moxa (mugwort) on my pinky toe every day! I am even attempting hypnosis!" Kim explained. She also said that her doctor is one of the few that will deliver a breech baby vaginally, as long as the baby can handle it.

Kardashian has also had other difficulties in her second pregnancy and she has been very candid when it comes to sharing those challenges with the world as well. According to People Magazine, Kim recently revealed that she may need a hysterectomy after her son is born.

"With the issues I had last time, my risk of having preclampsia and placenta acreeta are increased and there's not a whole lot I can do to prevent it, so my anxiety is a little high leading up to my delivery. In a very rare case, I might need a hysterectomy after delivery if my condition is severe enough, but luckily my doctor doesn't think this will happen," Kim revealed.

Kim Kardashian is due to give birth to her baby boy before Christmas. Fans hope that she and her newborn have a safe labor and delivery.
