    I bounce up and down and then side to side and then rotate my hips.

    It's pretty boring and hasn't done anything :-(

    My first day using the ball I bounced a little, got tired of that, and then just sat on it while searching this site. I rotated my hips side to side and in circles but mostly just sat there. Later that night.....crazy cramps and BH. My lil one dropped low the next few days. I don't think u need to do too much but sitting in that position opens up your hips and relieves back pain.

    I hear it's great during early labor too. I guess I'll find out.

    I've been bouncing up and down on mine and it's worked - at scan yesterday baby's head was fully engaged in pelvis at 38 weeks. HURRAH! Also I rock backwards and forwards as I heard it pushes head against cervix and encourages it to dilate.
    Good luck gals :)

    I got one (midwife advice) you sit on it, open legs, on your vagina area, and do circular movements.
