As the title, baby has turned breach and I'm just over 37wks.
I have an app tomorrow with ANC to discuss the results of the u/s from the other day confirming what type of breech.
I'm going in all prepared to have it as I w being induced at 38wks due to size issues, and I am not sure but thinking they'll maybe do an ECV?
Can anyone give me feedback on their experience of an ECV?
- did it hurt?- did it work?- did u end up with an emergancy c/s? If so why?
I am quite nervous has I've had 4 v/b without any issues so this is an entirely different ball game!

If bubs is already on the large side there may not be enough amniotic fluid to turn them - that was my experience although I was already 38 weeks when she was discovered to be breech, so I couldn't have ECV and ended up with scheduled c-section. This was my first though, they may be more open to VB given your history... Good luck!!

D D 2 turned to the side at around 38 weeks. I was given a week to see. If she would turn back. The doctor couldn't turn her. He tried for a few seconds and said no.
She turned herself back at 39 weeks and I had a vb.
You never know what happens. Good luck

My bub was breech from very early in the pregnancy and never turned around, so I decided to have a caesar.
An ECV was attempted at 37 weeks and it didn't hurt at all... just a bit uncomfortable - and believe me, I had two doctors pushing that baby as hard as they could!!
It turned out that my bub couldn't turn around due to umbilical cord issues (too twisted or something), but if your baby has only just turned breech, my bet is that it will be more easy to turn him/her around again. There is a really fascinating video on youtube of a successful ECV... might be worth a look to give you an idea of how it is done. I had one doctor on either side of me (one pushing the head, the other pushing the bum and they tried going one way and then the other... so at my insistence they tried their best!)
Also, I agree with the others that your bub might turn back on her own. If an ECV doesn't work I wouldn't suggest scheduling a caesar straight away, I would ask them if you can hold off a bit longer and wait to see if she/he turns back around by themselves.
Spinning babies website might also give you some ideas on how to get bub back the right way.

I was given the option to turn her, but the position she was in she'd need to go 2/3rds of the way back around......so I opted for the c-sec.

My baby was breach transverse the whole pregnancy. It was very painful!
We had lots of scans in the last few weeks as I had low fluid as well. At 37 weeks even the sonographer said there is no way this baby is moving. All docs agreed. We had an elective C section. I did a lot of research on EVC and to be honest it had me worried. I was more at ease with the c section than the evc. But its worth a try if you can and you are confident with your care. I think docs know quiet quickly if the baby will turn r not whilst doing an EVC. Good luck! There is still time for bubs to move.
