pregnancy, rectocele, and pelvic floor exercisers

Hello guys

So I finally got to the doctors to have my self diagnosis of a rectocele looked at (I was correct), and I manage to coincidentally time my appointment on the same day that I've got a BFP for DC#2 (grin)
My doctor said that I should work on improving my pelvic floor, as its unlikely that I will be repaired for years, never mind during pregnancy, as I'm only 25.
I did my pelvic floor exercises pre and post labour, plus it seems strong enough to me now except for the problem with the back wall (tmi?), so I was thinking that I'd invest in a kegel machine thing, as I've seen them get amazing results before. But I have no idea where to start or what to look for, or even if there is anything I shouldnt use in pregnancy...?

Has anyone used them and is able to point me in the right direction?

Thanks!! smile
