Mine just turned last week at nearly 37 weeks! I had a consult appt with an OB to discuss version and baby had flipped! I'm pretty sure it happened the night before, I had felt big movements. My midwife, interestingly, said that most babies flip at night when moms are sleeping and most relaxed, so there is the most room for a big baby to turn over. Babies WANT to be vertex, they fit better that way, and if your baby has been vertex, I would think you have a good chance of baby going back! Also, when my baby was breech it was very uncomfortable and there was a big, giant HEAD under my ribs, if you spend some time feeling your belly you might be able to identify that knobbly head, that for me, was the tell tale sign.
Things I did- weekly chiropractic care with a Chiro that does the Webster technique starting at about 32 weeks, breech tilts (laying with my hips above my head) for as much time as I could manage every day, Pulsitilla (a homeopathic remedy), ice packs up high and warm compresses down low, lots of swimming (particularly floating on my belly) and visualization/talking to baby.
Best of luck!! Don't panic, visit spinning babies, and get working on those exercises!
