Hi hon, I was laso looking into this and I found you can use them from around 20 weeks to do pelvic tilts, help with posture and bounce on. Apparently it helps baby engage? I thought they were more for use towards the end.

You can use them any time, after 14 weeks, my class uses them for bouncing, pelvic exercises and squats and sitting against the wall. more as exercise in the early stages, rather than getting the baby into position or anything. Plus, I sit at in at the computer or my back really hurts.

I read that when you sit on it your hips need to be higher than your knees, mine are level when i sit on it. Is it too small for me? or maybe it needs blown up more lol.

Your legs should be level hun. I have used mine for this one and my last 2 pregnancies along with specialist maternity physio for my back. You should sit with your legs shoulder width apart and your thighs should be level.

It is great to just bounce ever so slightly from side to side and only move your hips. I love mine and wouldn't be without it. Most people think they are a waste of money but if you have the room, blow it up lol

if you have the room??? Where do you go on yours? There wasn't much room for a birthing ball with all your kids toys when I came around. Your living room was like mine....top to toe toys
