Just wondering who has had one and at how many weeks?
If you have, and it worked, how long did it take to go into labour?
I had one done this morning, and the doc explained it's only a 50/50 chance of it working, but he said I could have another in a few days if i wanted... i didn't find it too painfull, just uncomfortable, but i just don't know a lot about it...

I had one at 39+6 and was already 2cm dilated. Had prelabour contractions at 40 and 40+3 weeks but both times contractions stopped after approx. 8 hours.
Had another s&s at 40+8 and was already 4cm dilated at this time. Ob was sure she'd see me that night but no luck, ended up being induced the next day (ARM).
Good luck and fingers crossed OP

Wow, how come they gave you one when you're less than 38 weeks? Sorry - not having a go, I truly don't know about these things and assumed it was something done close to due date if there were no signs of cervix softening etc?

I had 5 done with DS1 from 35 weeks, I was 3-4 cm dilated and all they did was give me braxton hicks contractions and made me feel like my body was broken! My last one was on a Friday and I had him on Wednesday.
