When did you start using a yoga ball to prepare for labor?

From 39 weeks. It really did nothing for me, I don't think. Still went a week overdue.

Yep. Went 15 days overdue and bounced on that damn ball every day.

I used mine a month early. Did nothing besides relieve pain in my pelvis and back. I went a week overdue. It's different for everyone tho

I think I started sitting on it in the evenings around 36/37 weeks? I found it more comfortable than the sofa. I went in to spontaneous labour at 39+2, not a clue if that had anything to do with it!

I started using mine a couple weeks ago and im just about 29 weeks. It helps with opening up my pelvis and I think it helped move him back into the right position. I use it once a week for now, until i get a bit closer then will go to every day.

I started at about 36 /37 weeks. I don't think it did anything but did make my back feel better. Ds2 came at 39+4.
