Exercise routine on ball

Common Questions and Answers about Exercise routine on ball


Avatar f tn I used one with my first starting around 30 weeks (I am now 30+1 and just started using it again). Instead of sitting on the couch I sit on the ball and if I read or eat dinner I sit on it lol even giving my 20month old a bath I will sit on it. With my first pregnancy I was dialated to 2 cm by 34 weeks and 4 cm by 38 weeks and went into labor at 39+5 and had a great 13hr labor. It helps baby get into position and can help you dialate.
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 :)!
8377023 tn?1399509160 How long should I bounce on my ball for at a time?
5915949 tn?1396188227 Yes I love my birthing ball. It also can help relieve some of the pressure. Just bounce right on top of it. U can also support ur arms on it & do squats. U can Google other exercise positions for a birthing ball.

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?
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 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 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 I'm 2 days away from my due date but I've been having inconsistent contractions for the last 2 days I'm exhausted. My mom is bring a exercise ball over for me to bounce on because I'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 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.

1896537 tn?1381900009 getting too hot but she also recommended continuing my regular exercise. My ON eye fogginess comes back with a vengeance if I so much as walk 50metres so what would be the best form of exercise for me? Should I just carry on with the walking and ignore the vision loss?
8489354 tn?1405627762 When did you start bouncing on an exercise ball and doing rolling movements? I am not using it to induce but to just kinda prepare everything.
Avatar f tn Walk,swimming, squats, jogging(if use to it), exercise ball(I have one its amazing look up birthing ball exercises on YouTube).
7892775 tn?1395673991 I alwaystake a warm shower aand let it run over me til all the hot water is gone. I wish the doctor would have recommended this ball a long time ago. Good thing is I've used exercise ball before so I already knew how to balance and all but let kids have mine when I found out I was pregnant because I didn't know you could still use them. I found a few more exercises online like pelvic tilts but not sure how to do them going to ask therapist to show me today.
Avatar f tn I would suggest that Covid makes everything a little more difficult. It seems to throw a psychological dragginess over doing things. So if your exercise routine isn't particularly inspiring, as Pax says, it would not only be hard to stick with in normal times, but to me it seems unsurprising that it would be harder to stick with it now. I agree that doing something that's a workout in itself but you like, is a good way to exercise.
Avatar f tn try a dvd by zumba or another trainer you like, and mix it up. Don't do the same routine all the time. Confuse your muscles by having a different routine every day.
