I hope she tuns on her own soon, so you don't have to worry about it! But if not, definitely see what your options are for a breach birth!...I don't blame you for not wanting a c-section!!
I don't think my midwife wants an early version since she said not to worry about it til 36 weeks, and I'm kinda worried I can't even have one, my only real knowledge of versions is what I read somewhere when I was pregnant with Courtney (and no longer really remember since it has never been applicable to me) and what I learned from Ruth when she was waiting on James last year. And I remember her having some issue where they wouldn't do it past a certain date in the pregnancy, and I know I can't do it too early cuz I have some work issues...gah!
