Just that really! Waiting for the consultant and feeling really jittery. Need serious hand holding.

Oh wow your brave. I was too scared to try that in my last pregnancy, was due a scan at 36wks to see if baby had turned, luckily night before scan I felt a huge flip/turn and knew he'd turned round, felt pain in groin when walking too. Really didn't fancy a C section either.
Hope it all goes well and good luck. cake

I had that for DD - she was transverse.
It worked, she stayed put and all was well.
A little uncomfortable, but not painful.
Good luck!

I had one too. Successful and normal delivery three weeks later. Would second what Seeline had said - uncomfortable but not painful.
Good luck.

I went for mine last week but the baby had already turned - no idea how I didn't notice.
Hope it goes well for you and the baby turns and stays head down.

Well that didn't work! Drugs made me feel funny but apparently the years of Pilates and ballet I have done meant my stomach muscles are to tight for the Consultant to even get a grip on him ( that's not a stealth boast by the way!). So it's a Csection for me - apparently the chances of h naturally flipping are low. Thanks for all your thoughts xxx

I had one on Monday and it didn't work. Got my caesarean booked for next Wednesday. At least we can say we tried!
