Anyone had a version done?

I am 37 weeks and just found out baby is still side to side breech. Doctor is having me come in right away for a consult for a possible version to try and turn him. As much as I don't want a c section this procedure and its risks scare me just as much. Just wondering if anyone has ever been through one or has any insight. Unfortunately doesn't look like I am going to have much time to try to turn him in other ways because this procedure is going to need be done early next week while I am still 37 weeks.

I had a version done, and my child was in a "Frank Breech" position.

Hey :) Yes I have had a version - my little girl was frank breech. The procedure was not successful and I had an elective cesarean three days afterwards ( which went perfectly). I was nervous about having the version done too, i'd heard it could be painful and more than anything was worried about my baby becoming distressed during the process - but my baby was observed the whole time by ultrasound and her ( and my) heartbeat was also monitored. We were also close by the operating theatre in case the baby became distressed and needed to be born by emergency cesarean.Despite the fact that my baby didn't turn, I am glad I gave the version a go. Hope this helps :)
