    I bought one of those gym balls the other day and started a bit of bouncing just to give baby a hint that it's about time. But it gave me such bad pain in my pubic bone, I'm not keen on getting back on it!!

    Anyone else who's had this? :hug:

    I was going to get one but I have a feeling it will just make my hips ache :/. Going to go with the carrying on moving around a lot method to encourage i think xx

    I quite like my ball!! Can also use it to kind of lay across if that is less of a strain on your hips / pubic bone. Kneel on the floor and kind of stretch over onto it - I think thats supposed to help give LO the hint as to what position he should be getting into! Good luck! X

    I haven't had any problems when using my ball. Been using it for weeks and weeks. Go on it occasionally and just bounce gently and rock on it. Can feel it in my legs though if I'm on it for too long!

    I would persevere as during induction bouncing really helped things move along x
