37+5 weeks today!

Decided to start properly using my birthing ball.

Has a) anyone used the before with success? B) for how long did you " bounce " ie 15 minutes with a break for an hour!? How many times!!

I sat on mine every evening and rotated round, trying to help the baby move down. Not sure if it helped; I'm fairly sure it was scrubbing the kitchen floor on my hands and knees that helped him drop!

I found it great in labour. I ended up being given a drip so had to be on a monitor the whole time. The ball kept me mobile and my labour progressed really quickly.
