Avatar_f_tn Anybody had any luck inducing labor with a exercise ball? FTM and I'm 37+3 weeks and not dilated at all. Ready for our little man to be here!!
Avatar_f_tn I'm 38 weeks 5 days, I got an exercise ball to bounce on to help induce labor, anyone had any luck with this method?
Avatar_f_tn How do you women use your exercise ball during pregnancy? Do you just sit and bounce? Do you roll your back on it to stretch it out? Did it help any of your babies to drop down a little?
Avatar_f_tn Bouncing on an exercise ball doesn't always work..
Avatar_f_tn Does the exercise ball help u go in labor or just make labor easier or helps tge baby drop
Avatar_f_tn So I have been bouncing on this big exercise ball for the last 3 nights. Well tonight I am feeling a lot of pressure on and off down there and in my butt. I'm guessing it's helping? Does anyone have experience with using one to help induce labor? Has it been successful for anyone? I'm due Christmas eve. Baby still hasn't dropped, at least I don't think she has.
Avatar_f_tn I have used the ball since week 31 I'm 35 almost 36 weeks I am 80 percent effaced no dilation yet but I sit on the ball everyday whenever I am on the computer or watching tv I barely am ever on the couch I bounce n roll n rock lol and walk like 3 miles a day not at a fast pace but still and I think it's helping dr said baby is very low were just waiting for dilation :) he's almost 7 lbs already sheesh it's surprising cuz I've barely started to gain weight just this week n only 4 lbs!!!!!!!
Avatar_f_tn Have any of you ladies used an exercise ball to help speed up labor? And did it work? 38 weeks and 6 days, still no dilation, baby still has not dropped, and still have my mucus plug. I really need help. I really don't want a c-section.
Avatar_f_tn Has anyone used or know of anyone that has used an exercise ball to help get labor going or make baby drop or help them to dilate?
Avatar_f_tn Has anybody tried sitting on an exercise ball to induce labour? Just went and bought one and wondering does anyone have success stories? Im due today and as of last wednesday 2cm dilated, partially effaced and 4/5ths palpable..

5143780_tn?1370561531 I loved my exercise ball with my first pregnancy! It helped my back and hip pain and helped me dilate to 4cm by 38 weeks. I sat on it all the time (eat dinner, watch tv, reading a book, work on my scrapbook, etc.). I started using it around 30 weeks.
6088943_tn?1381728810 Has anyone tried using a birthing/exercise ball while in labor? I'm being induced Friday morning at exactly 39 weeks. And I'm trying to find alternative natural ways of relieving the contraction pains. I'm getting an epidural, but my doctor wants me to wait till I'm 4-5 cm dilated to get it. So I'd like to try different things to help while waiting for the medicine. Any other suggestions?
Avatar_f_tn 38 weeks along and just purchased an exercise / stability ball! I'm actually pretty excited about it as I've read great things and seems like a great natural tool to help move things along :) I've only used it gently for about half an hour but already my back feels so much better after hurting all day. I don't expect it to bring on labour (though I definitely wouldn't mind!), but was wondering if it has for anyone else?
Avatar_f_tn Also something that help with with my last baby was bouncing on a ball or sitting on a chair that was low to the ground.
Avatar_f_tn Also, Four Square was our favorite sport to play, we'd walk for miles to find paved roads in order to scribe chalk squares and play with a ball. We also loved tether ball! All you need is a tree, a rope and a rubber ball. If you don't live in a place where you have a yard, you can take your child to a park. Ice skating is always a fun winter activity! We never had skates but we still had a lot of fun slipping around on the frozen ponds back on the farm. Fun days!
Avatar_f_tn You want those muscles strong, but not inflamed. Light plank holds and exercise ball workouts are good. Plus I find its really easy to oull an ab with all the relaxin and round ligament pain. Let you abs relax drink something with some sugar and see if he gets moving around again.
1906433_tn?1321848291 Which is ok, but with the weather getting colder, I can't tolerate outside much. We have an exercise room with several different machines, but I don't want to overdo it. I still feel off-balance with bending down & up & around too much, so vertical or sitting down outstreched maybe. Any suggestions would be appreciated so I don't hurt my head. Thank You.
4526747_tn?1356287015 At week did you girls start using the exercise ball? Im 31 weeks tomorrow and w my first two i had to be induced but with this one everything is so different and im already having alot of pressure doc said just take it easy for now..
