    Morning!! (Just!)

    I want to buy a birth/gym ball, but was wondering when I start using it? I'm not 30 weeks yet-am I getting ahead of myself? I heard that it's good to use to improve posture and ease aches and pains.

    Thanks,

    Caroline

    I've been using one for weeks now, it helps with the back pain. My pregnancy yoga teacher recommended it too, as well as lots of different stretching exercises.

    I had one of those exercise balls already and have been sitting on it since 32 weeks lol. If nothing else, it's SO comfortable.
