Lurking from the March '13 DDC. My first was breech (not sure which position), and I tried the ECV. I had an epidural first, then they (at least 2 doctors/nurses) tried pushing on the outside of my belly while turning it and using an ultrasound. Despite having had the epi, it hurt like crap! It felt like someone was cutting me open with a knife. On top of that, it didn't work. I was 38w5d and had a section at 39w5d. If you can do some home exercises, try that. Otherwise, c-sections really aren't too bad. I'll be having my fourth this time around.
Anyway, I guess what I'm saying is I don't recommend trying an ECV.
Thank you, peimum, for my beautiful siggy!
