Since I'm 38 weeks today (yay!) I have started prepping my body to be able to start labor on its own. I got out the trusty birthing ball and have started the hip exercises to encourage baby girl to drop and engage because she is high up still. I'm hoping after a week of exercising it will get some things happening! I've only gone into labor on my own once, with my first, when my water broke at 40w2d. Each of my others after that didn't lower into the birth canal until induction, one of them at 41w4d!! So this time I am prepared! I sure hope it works!! Anyone had success with a exercise/birthing/yoga ball? I've only heard good things!

I've been using mine every now and then and so far as far as I know the kid is floating around. Thankfully induction is not a threat so I don't get if I go over lol, unless of course medically necessary.

Well I knew it was a long shot but I had heard nothing but good things about them. If anything it is greatly improving my posture! It's SO comfortable to use while sitting at my desk!

I've never used one, but I've heard great things!

I've never heard of using it to help baby drop, other than when you're already in labor! I'll have to try it when I get far enough along.

I wish I still had my yoga ball! I used it the past two babies, I would sit on it while on my computer. It really was comfortable to bounce around on and just roll my hips around on.

Actually, my oldest son was in GT at his schools before we moved and his classroom last year used stablization balls instead of chairs. The kids loved it.
