Here is a quote that I found.

Quote:
Best way to do it when hugely pregnant is to sit on the toilet with one foot on the floor and one up on the seat of the toilet. Put two fingers in and go back towards your bum. The cervix in a pregnant woman feels like your lips puckered up into a kiss. On a non-pregnant woman it feels like the end of your nose. When it is dilating, one finger slips into the middle of the cervix easily (just like you could slide your finger into your mouth easily if you are puckered up for a kiss). As the dilation progresses the inside of that hole becomes more like a taught elastic band and by 5 cms dilated (5 fingerwidths) it is a perfect rubbery circle like one of those Mason jar rings that you use for canning, and about that thick.[/b]
You wouldn't be able to feel the head until the head has decended all the way down. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. HTH.

Thats how I had to do it too, also I had to give a little bit of a push to get my fingers there. I never felt his head, even the night I was in labor and 6cm dilated. All I ever felt was a bulging bag of waters. It felt very tight and rubbery.
