    It doesn't take long I had one today just a few mins - all that she does is put a finger inside you and tries to reach inside the cervix and then sweep around the babies head - it is a wee bit uncomfortable but fine - hope your wee one is on the way :)

    she puts her fingers in a tries to touch your tonsils. Doesn't take long and when you go into labour you can accidentally kick her in the face as payback.

    I had it. It was nothing really. I'm 1cm dilated and she could feel baby's head (which I thought was quite amazing!) so I guess good news. She said to give it a couple of days so, along with a 2 mile walk this afternoon followed by a curry, I'm keeping my fingers crossed...
