I'm sending lots of turning vibes your way. I'm booked in for an ECS on the 18th, if I get any twinges before hand I have to quickly ring up and get booked in. It's nice having the scan but I'm not sure if it was different for you but I didn't have a clue what I was looking at he was so big x

I've heard bad things about ECVs, sometimes a baby is in the wrong position for a reason. I have a scan to check if my baby is transverse tomorrow, first they thought it was breech and now they think transverse! Have elected a c section anyway so no point trying to turn mine, but if the position is confirmed then they might do my c section earlier. Xx

Try the spinning babies website before your ECV to see if you can get baby to turn yourself which would be less invasive. I hope it turns soon. Xxx

I've also read up bad things about ECV but I'm very confident in my hospital .. All the staff and midwives are lovely and I know if it's painful or uncomfortable I can ask them to stop. I'd rather know I've done all I can to try turn him .. I've gave up with the spinning babies website ha ha!

Hope your sections go well and we all have our babies soon! Most important thing is they get here safely! x

Glad your ECV worked! Why did they turn the baby if you're having a c section? I had a scan which showed my baby was head down after all, so the consultant and midwife were wrong, unless baby flipped again I guess. Xx
