That sounds rather early to turn the baby, at my hospital this was normally done at 37-38wks. I had a turning (ECV) at 39+5 as it was spotted very late on, and it was bloody painful and didn't work. But I'm glad I gave it a try and I wouldn't want to put you off having one.
The baby is most likely to turn of his own accord (only 2-3% of babies are born breech), and there's things you can do to encourage him to go the right way up, i.e. lots of time spent on all fours, with your head down and your bum up in the air. Also some people say moxibustion works but I just thought it was a waste of money!
Well done greenlawn, that's great your baby turned. Most do. My DS was one of the stubborn ones! To be honest as I was a first timer and I'm rather short I have the theory that DS just didn't have room to turn. If this isn't your first baby a turning is more likely to work.
If my second baby was breech I would buy moxa sticks and do the moxibustion myself - it's just burning the end of one of these near your little toe, so that you can feel the heat, for 5-10 mins each side, twice a day. It's totally not worth paying £40-60 for if you could pay £2.95 instead! Your local Chinese health food shop should sell them.
Had mine turned just before induction at about 38 weeks. Didn't hurt at all and was successful although then had to spend the next few hours on my side until the head engaged (third baby) to prevent turning breech again.
Wouldn't bother with ECV if I were you, my DS has turned every sodding week for the last four and I'm 37 weeks pregnant! He's now head down and the little bugger is staying put if he knows what's good for him!
