Has anyone had one? Or know someone who did? Was it successful? I am rethinking having Dr try to turn my little guy since I am a good candidate for this procedure - have had other pregnancies, good amount of fluid, etc and my Dr said risks are low and they have team standing by in case I need emergency section. My big snafu is that Dr won't do it til 39 weeks and she is on vacation then, so I would have to wait until midway thru 40th week to have it done if I haven't gone into labor by then. Still hoping he turns on his own and I don't have to decide any of this!!
I haven't actually had it done, but the doctor who was possibly going to do mine last time was supposedly very good at it. From what I understand, different doctors have varying degrees of success, and he was very successful at attempting them. I think the success rate can be largely dependent on the doctor.
I'm curious why your doctor won't do it until 39 weeks. Most of them will consider it at any point past 38 weeks.

Most wont do it til 39 weeks because they are primarily done in the OR in case there is a cord compression issue or baby doesn't tolerate it and they need to do a csection. They want the baby to be as close to term as possible for health reasons and to hope after turning the baby won't be as apt to turning around again.
