has anyone here had an external version? If so I'd like to share experiences. I just had one....

Was it successful? Painful? I had one with no problems. How was yours?

It was successful yes :) Thank God for that but it was painful. The presence of my husband plus a small dose of morphine helped me. Now I just pray he will stay in that position till delivery. I'm 39 wks and 4 days now....how about you ?

what is an external version?

It's when they manually manipulate the baby from outside the uterus to turn it into the right position - usually attempted on breech babies.

Mine was with my first pregnancy around 35 weeks. She stayed put and I was able to have a v____al delivery. This time, baby has managed to get into the right position on her own and has stayed there a while (I'm 33.5 weeks now).

Sounds really painfull.Can't they wait until your going in to labor to do that? I know the longer you are the less the baby will move but I was told by my mom that I moved on my own about 2 hours before i was born.
