This could become really big -- and it sounds horrifying.

Kim Kardashian West must be SO relieved!
On Tuesday, Kimmy revealed some fabulous news about her baby boy's health to fans. According to Mrs. West, her bundle of joy is no longer in breech position! Woot!
For those who don't know, the breech position is when a baby is set to be delivered feet first. Obviously, this is a very dangerous situation for the infant AND mommy.
"So I wanted to give you guys an update on my pregnancy since my last post. 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. 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!"
Woah. Sounds INTENSE. At least Kardashian had her family for support!
"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!!! My baby is in the right position and it feels so good to not have the stress of thinking I need a C-section. I'm so thankful for my doctors!"
Yes! What FANTASTIC news!
Hopefully this will be the last complication before Kim delivers!
