I loved it because it was a different position then just standing and walking and it was nice and cushy for the tushy, but hated it because it made my contractions more uncomfortable for me... I spent maybe a total of 2-3 hours on and off of it total but it was not working for me, just the way DD was positioned and I was sitting it was putting an awful pressure on my va-j-j and just made me feel like I needed to constantly urinate or have a bowel movement...
I loved the birth ball my entire pregnancy, I sat on it almost daily and was so amped up to love it when I was in labor..then I sat on it during a contraction! I had horrible back labor and I'd heard about how glorious this ball was so I was pumped when my nurse got it out...the first time I sat on it, eh not so bad. My contractions were still about 3 minutes apart that time and only lasting about 30 seconds, I sat on the ball for about 5-10 minutes maybe - the second time I sat on it, it was pretty uncomfortable, i sat there maybe all of 2 minutes because I just preferred the toilet. The third (and final) time I sat on that demon ball my contractions were coming 2 at a time and lasting 60 seconds each with just 30-45 seconds before the next double cluster. Sam suggested I try kind of bouncing on it to try to get Brylie to drop down (still at -3 station)..I sat on that ball and as soon as my contraction started i shot up and kicked that darn ball under the bed and threw a few classy words in the mix! I told them to get that thing out of my site or I was going pop out!
