I'm just coming to 36 weeks pregnant (1st baby) and currently baby is lying breech and my amniotic fluid is very slightly low (4.8cm).
I had an appointment at my local antenatal unit and they offered me and ECV appointment next week or a c section at 39 weeks.
At the time I said I'd like to give ECV a go and booked for the appointment next Thursday (30th July). I had heard before that the procedure can be uncomfortable and have been trying not to think about that but since booking the appointment I've been feeling really anxious and worried about it.
I have read that the procedure is not usually successful if your fluid level is low (I am guessing they are not too concerned about this as she had already checked my notes etc beforehand) and also that if your placenta is anterior it can increase the risk of abruption. Reading this has just made me feel more anxious about it and I'm wondering if maybe I've made an impulsive decision.
Has anyone else here had ECV with their first pregnancy, what was your experience?
If I was to decide to change my mind and opt for a c section can I do this?
If I do then go for a c section and baby has naturally turned will they go ahead with the c section or will I then have a natural birth?
Thanks in advance
