    I can feel mine, sometimes after going to the loo.

    It has been sopftening nicely, but I was able to feel a real opening there today, one finger easily would fit inside it.

    I've looked on web and that sayd it equates to 1cm dilated.

    Sounds promising. I just wondered if anyone else has the odd prod, or is it just me??!!

    Ooooo I've had this for a while... :think: Its very tempting to stick my finger up there and start things off... but tbh I want the baby to stay in place for as long as necessary, ie she can come out when she's ready :)

    Dunno if it's a good sign or a bad sign about the cervix... :think: I haven't had an internal since I was 8 weeks pregnant so I dunno if my cervix is open or anything...

    I have two children, but have used the coil after each so I'm quite good at chwecking to make sure it's in place etc and know what it usually feels like.

    It is much softer than usual, kinda 'pouty' and definitely fanning out at the end with a soft hole big enough for one finger.

    I didn't shove my finger up there!!! but I could feel the tip of my finger would disappear easily if I wanted it to.

    I looked at this http://www.askdramy.com/Chap15.html?x=69&y=97

    I can't tell you how tempted I am!!!! But could I make things go wrong, if the baby isn't ready? I don't know what to do!

    I feel like I need a massive poo.. but there's nothing there! It's driving me crazy.
