Has anyone had one (external cephalic version) before? I am almost 36 wks and my daughter is transverse (sideways). I talked to my OB about it and she said that we could try to do an ECV, but that she didn't know if the baby would stay flipped and it was painful. Doing my own research I've discovered that it has a 90% success rate in babies that are transverse and it also helps if it's not your first child (which it's not). I would much rather have the baby naturally if possible (I'm not into a bunch of pain medicine and surgery!). But then again, I'm worried about the cord getting compressed, etc. (I've had one m/c @ 19wks due to cord being wrapped around his neck). My OB said that the ECV is done in Labor & Delivery and that you are monitored for a while afterwards to make sure that the baby is okay. I'm leaning more towards doing one. Of course I'm just happy that she's healthy. I'll take her any way I can get her. But what do you think?
