My DD was breech and we did a failed version at 37 weeks. It turned out I was in labor for 3 days (non painful - just non-stop braxton hicks) but not progressing because baby was breech.

When the version failed we did a unplanned c-section within 15 minutes because I was having contractions 3-5 min apart. They didn't want me to leave the hospital like that and have an emergency occur.

DD was born without complications and I got staples for a bikini line.

I wouldn't recommend the version - it was the most difficult for me.

Funny thing a friend of mine duplicated this story the day after my dd was born - right down to the failed version and unplanned c-section - you might have thought we planned that.

Good luck !

She was apparantly very comfortable, or possibly stuck, who knows? Her head was right at my rib cage, her butt was on my bladder, and her feet were up by her head, so it was like a jack-knife dive position..and she was turned facing the back slighty.

The dr's told me about the aversion method, stating the percentage of it working is not usually very high and they end up having to do a c-section anyways. They explained the actual process as being like 2 men shoving on my belly and that it's painful. They admitted that it may not work, adding that b/c I was also petite and my belly was huge (all baby) that there may not be enough room for her to move around. So, I went ahead and scheduled the surgery for 6 days before my due date. Of course they always checked her position and even did an ultrasound right before surgery to make sure she ahdn't changed. She hadn't.

I am attaching a pic of my "breech baby." All the nurses said as soon as you unswaddle her, you knew she was the "breech baby." (I should let you know that her legs did not stay like that. We did have to take her to have an ultrasound on her hips when she was 6 weeks old, but everything was normal)

You can read my entire birth story in the July-September 2008 Playgroup, and I go into much more detail about the surgery.

Sounds like we had the exact thing lol My daughter was breech and she had her fet at her head and after 6 weeks we had to get an ultrasound done on her hips. She was fine but it took some time for her to put those legs down and when we swaddled her she use to try to put her feet up lol
