I've done the googling thing but would like to hear from personal experience
So if you had an ECV did it hurt?
Was it succesful?
Did bub just turn back again?
How long did yours take?
Did you have a support person with you?
My baby has been head down the entire time but at my appointment yesterday she is now breech! I'm 36+6 and I had an appointment 2 weeks ago where she was head down. I'm not sure if they will be doing the turn for a number of reasons. I have a scan booked for tomorrow at 37 weeks to determine size, fluid levels and location of placenta and cord. I have GD and my fluid is on the higher enx of the scale. At 34 weeks she was measuring at the 98th percentile. ..her head was in the 93rd percentile. I know Its not completely accurate but that's all we have to work with.
So they have said if she is too big or if something is in the way then they wont do the turning as they don't want to risk anything. They also said the latest they like to try and turn bub is 37 weeks, I will be over that by the time the ecv is attempted so I guess I will know more tomorrow arvo as that's when it is all being decided. OR bub could just turn back...who knows!
Anyway please share your experiences successful or not

OK will definitely be getting dh in with me. Mil has a bad back and acts put out if we ask for her help and my sister is also 37 weeks with two little ones herself and my mum left on a business trip today...so will be tricky to find help but we will sort something out I definitely don't want to be alone In there now.
Straight after the scan tomorrow I am going to the delivery suite so they can discuss the plan whether It's an ecv on Thurs/fri or a csection might be booked. So I guess we will see what happens after this ultrasound.
Thanks again ladies xo

Cranky thank you so much for sharing the ins and outs. I'm glad it worked for you and that you were in good hands
My ultrasound is at lunch time and I will be going to the delivery suite straight after to discuss what the plan is. They are just worried about the size of her head and belly because I have GD because they were measuring really big.
Thank you for bringing up hip displaysia I will definitely be on the look out for that should I have the ecv or csection

Oh and I have an 11 month old and a 3 year old so will definitely have them organized if the OB decides to do the ecv.
