    Sorry to sound completely thick :wacko: but what do you do on them and how long for? I saw them on offer in Sainsbury's so I thought I would give it a go but then realised, I don't know what to do :haha:

    It's for when you get closer to giving birth/go into labour, just bounce gently on it or rock backwards and forwards and helps baby get into a good position. I got one from Tesco last week, £3.33 reduced from £5 :)

    They're also good for backache and pelvic pain earlier in pregnancy.

    At the moment, I just sit on mine when I'm on my laptop and gently bounce or rock back and forth.

    Bounce, roll your hips, rock back and forth whatever floats your boat! I sit on mine to watch tv as well just cos its a bit more comfortable than the sofa but I also use it to lean over to stretch my back out. Mine isnt actually a birth ball, its a Davina workout ball lol. I've used it every day since I got it to help with pregnancy niggles and hopefully it will help me get back into shape after lol! Plus if its on offer....:)

    I use mine now when I have back pain. Just sit and rock my hips around. Not sure if I'll use it at the hospital, but I plan on using it while still at home in early labor.

    Just what they all said, use it to stop you slouching on the sofa and do whatever feels comfy - rock, bounce, rotate. The other night when I had cramps I was on all 4s leaning on it. Well worth the £7 I paid for it. :thumbup:
