This is my 3rd baby and I am almost 35 weeks. This is my second baby to turn breech after 34 weeks. I had the cephalic version (ECV) done at 38 weeks with my last pregnancy (successful) and went into labor 2 days later. So, has anyone else had this done? Or has anyone had a baby that finally turned head down after 36 weeks? I know my baby is measuring large for date and I have lower than normal amniotic fluid (due to type 2 diabetes). My last baby, I had gestational diabetes and had way too much fluid (27 cm). This time around, I do NOT want to have the ECV as it IS risky and I have lower fluid measurements(around 9-11 cm). I have had painful contractions with this pregnancy since about 27 weeks (was given meds to stop labor). I am not leaning towards having the ECV because since the baby turned head up/feet down, my contractions have stopped! I feel more secure she will stay in there to term if we just leave her alone. Any thoughts? Is anyone else in the same boat?
