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 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 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 Bouncing on an exercise ball doesn't always work..
Avatar f tn Any experiences with the exercise ball helping to get the baby lower & dialate you? Or starting labor? Anyone?
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 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..
Avatar f tn Get a bignexercise ball and look up YouTube videos on how to use birthing ball, I also use the ball to hold myself doing squats. And I walk a lot.
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 :)!
Avatar f tn Okay so I can't go to the gym. I get really bad anxiety, like I'll go to walk through the door and start crying. I've always been this way. I walk an hour a day but I'm trying to get in shape and loose 10lbs for vacation in August.
Avatar f tn Look at walmart im pretty sure they arent thay expensive.
Avatar f tn I walk 20-30 minutes a day and bought a birthing ball its the same as one of those big gym balls and I exercise with that. They have videos on YouTube on how to exercise on them while pregnant.
6088943 tn?1381725210 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?

2080518 tn?1357249671 So I have one, a birthing ball that is, and I am not excatally sure how to use it. We never thought i'd make it this far so I missed my chance at birthing classes. 37 weeks today and doing a VBAC. Any tips ladies?
5143780 tn?1370557931 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.
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.
1931709 tn?1335833095 I use YouTube videos to work out. Type in pregnancy workout and it will show you multiple videos that are safe to do during pregnancy.
10231969 tn?1418570682 I've been bouncing on a exercise ball for 2 days now still nothing..
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 I got an exercise ball to bounce on today, has anyone had any luck kickstarting labor with an exercise 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.
