They tried to turn my son when I was 8.5 months pregnant. I was really, really uncomfortable and it did hurt me quite a bit. If they had realized earlier on in my pregnancy that he was sitting breech then it wouldn't have been such an ordeal and probably wouldn't have hurt so much.
The doctor had to use a lot of pressure and was actually shaking from pushing/pulling so hard. I felt like I had been beaten up for the next few days.
I also had a fairly large baby and his bum was wedged way down in my pelvis so it wasn't a typical attempt at a turn.
Yours most likely wont be as painful as mine was.
