Who has one and are you using it yet? Im having horrible burning pressure in my lady bits every time i move - its just horrible and i was wondering if getting a ball will help relieve some of the pressure??? I borrowed my SIL's ball last time but i dont think i needed it until 30 something weeks.

I have two! I sit on one at work and I have one at home. It helps a lot with aches and pains.

I have one and am investing in a new one. I have been using it for a couple weeks to lean on kneeling on the floor to help my lower back and have been using it to sit on instead of the couch because my butt cheeks are starting to hurt and it helps open the pelvis and is more comfy for me....

I used mine all the time with my DD but when I went into labor it was the most uncomfortable for me

Hah, yep! That was exactly my reaction when I bought mine.

I hated the ball during labor. Wanted to stab it dead.

I never thought to use it while not in labor, I will have to try it out! I tried it in labor the first time for about.. half a second lol

I have one I use at work some. I tried using one during labor with my son but it was not helpful at all and got in my way. I did much better walking around.

I did use one in early labour last time and it helped as a distraction while i had visitors but once the contractions kicked up a gear i did better walking round too until they made me lay on my back for the last 5 hours
Yes they are much better suited to pregnancy rather than labour.
