Successful external cephalic version
So I got a phone call at 9:57 this morning saying my old OB could take me at 11am for a ECV. It took a lot of prep, monitoring, blood draws, IVs, etc before it actually got underway at 2pm. I was given Visteril to help combat the effects and jitteryness of the Terbutaline they then gave me. It was uncomfortable, but not painful. I focused and breathed through it and DH and my midwife kept me focused. It was easy to get baby from butt down to transverse, but then a bit of work to get it then headdown. There is a minor complication, the baby's feet is now above the head. Wiggling toes against the cervix. We are hopeful it will pull its feet out of the way and the doc is hopeful also as there is not much known about this incidence and what to do. He said you can pinch the hands when those come out first and the baby will retract, but not sure about feet.
There is the possibility the baby can flip back to breech, but low percent of that occurring. I have a belly binder on to keep it in place and will take note of different movements. Now just lots of resting and laying around. I think I can manage that. :bellyrubs:
