38 weeks and breech

I went for my 38 week check up and found out my daughter is breeches. Going in Friday for the doc to try and manually turn her (which someone said can be very painful?) I'm so worried I will have to have an emergency c-section. This is baby #2. My first daughter was born vaginally. Has anyone had to have a version done?

I've had it done and it did not work for me. My son wouldn't budge and yes it was painful. I am currently 37 wks pregnant and found out yesterday that this baby has turned breech. I'm already scheduled for a c-section so I guess it really doesn't matter what position she's in at this point. My doctor did say she could turn back head down though so maybe you'll get lucky and yours will turn itself. Good luck!

Try crawling.  Crawl heaps.  Doc told my mum years ago and it turned the baby.
