Avatar f tn Have contractions every now and then , stays hard a when I walk around but can you dilate without doing much ??
Avatar f tn m too tired to walk anymore. Did using an exercise ball help anyone else make their contractions more consistent or does anyone have anything else that might help?
Avatar f tn Might be a dumb question but do you just sit on the ball? Lol I'm a ftm and plan on trying everything :)!
7975661 tn?1403095318 Yes of course. I do squats and walk up hill.
Avatar f tn Also, you can send your child on treasure hunts to find things to make christmas ornaments, like those really cool looking pine cones or holly or whatever else you could use! Again if you live in town, you can just drive to a park somewhere.
Avatar f tn I agree that an exercise ball can help a lot. It will help the baby get into better position. I bounced on that baby 1 hour in the morning, and 1 hour before bed a week before I was induced to try to help him come on his own but I only had to push for 20 minutes!
5915949 tn?1396188227 It does not induced labour, rather it helps in positioning the baby, so their back is against you tummy. The ball mskes you sit in a way that the gravity gets the baby's head down as well. . Hope this helps. .
Avatar f tn Any experiences with the exercise ball helping to get the baby lower & dialate you? Or starting labor? Anyone?
Avatar f tn Bouncing on an exercise ball doesn't always work..
12693075 tn?1442246392 hey ladies!!! Do you guys have the energy to exercise? If so, how long and what are you doing? I'm a FTM in my 3rd trimester. I'm always tired but not sleepy.
8377023 tn?1399509160 You can bounce on it for as long as you want (:
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..
2186195 tn?1339430622 i didn't use my ball while in labor, but i used it to stretch while pregnant. it proveds great support for back stretching. and it will help you tighten back up after the birth. there are lots of excersizes to do on them, especially ones to get that six pack back post baby.
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?
1906433 tn?1321844691 A PT could help to develop a plan for regain some strength in your legs and core based on you. If you can get that referral you might be able to get six-10 sessions where the PT would work side by side with you and help to to gently improve your strength with ball and gentle mat type exercises and also assess and teach you how to use the equipment that might be appropriate for you to use.
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?
2141290 tn?1349033141 Well my question is.. Have any of you ladies used an exercise ball and how long after that did you improve in dilating?
Avatar f tn Walk, walk, walk. Try doing as many squats as u can too:) my friend did about 36squats and went into 4hrs later.
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 I uwe'd mine for the last few weeks before going into labor, I ended up having him 4 days before due date. I'm not sure of it helped bring labor on or not, and I didn't use it once in labor. I feel like it's a wonderful thing to do instead of lounging on the couch or in a computer chair. Puts your pelvis in the right spot so baby can engage your cervix, and let's baby get in a great position, helping to keep baby out of breech.
Avatar f tn Bounce on an exercise ball or rotate ur hips in circular motions on it. Walk a lot try not to cross ur legs. Sit in an exercise ball instead of on the couch with ur feet up.
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 It greatly depends on what your fitness level was before you got pregnant and what type of exercises you did. It's best to ask your doctor if you can continue a specific routine, however walking and swimming are supposed to be good for almost everyone.
6759135 tn?1420070652 I stood up too long while I was washing the dishes and my back was aching really bad. Sitting on the couch just made it worse. I rolled my exercise ball over to me and planted myself on that and began rolling my hips around and within 10 minutes the pain had disappeared. So glad I bought one. I read online they're good to have during pregnancy and that's no lie. Definitely recommended.
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 n tn And yes, exercise. but if you have not been one to exercise before, maybe check with your doctor. Here is an article that may help: http://www.medhelp.
Avatar f tn One is to push baby down into position and the other is to dilate. So they said walk as much as possible and bounce on a exercise ball to help baby drop.
