    I got mine at about 30 weeks. I used it a bit - but the last few weeks - I've been going mad on it!! I bought mine from Tesco. Make sure you get the right size though. I'm quite tall, so had to get the larger size. Just trawl the internet for gym balls - their sites will tell you which size for you height.

    I had a look on a site and it said pregnancy balls were bigger and gym balls and gym balls aren't a good idea for pregnancy?

    I've got a large gym ball and it's perfect. The physio said it was fine too. Was it a pregnancy ball site by any chance?

    Yeah it was, I didnt no if it was just a marketing ploy to get people to buy their ball or not?

    Definately! If you ask any physio, they will just say use a gym ball. In fact the ones at my labour ward are the same as the one I have from Tesco!!! Just make sure it's not too flimsy, so it doesn't burst on you!!!! Like I said, the Tesco ones are brill and I've also heard good reports about the Argos ones. No need to go to expensive internet sites hun.

    I'm missing out, I don't bounce to anything! I just sit on it to watch TV! I'd like to sit on it when on BnB but it's too low for the computer. When I'm on leave I'll have to have ball and BnB shifts! lol
