    Tri hopping but my physio recommended I get one for my spd. Don't see why you shouldn't use one. Assuming you mean a gym ball to sit on. Xx

    I'm pretty certain any time in tri 3 is fine - it's not proven to induce labour, just help baby get into the right position so you should be fine at any time x

    Seeing this I'm starting to think I really should invest in one now!! Had joint problems and pain before I was pregnant but if it really helps that much I'm thinking this might help the extremes I seem to end up in!! Lol now to go find 1 I can afford!!

    Sitting on it and rolling hips is good from anytime. I heard you should start bouncing on it from 37 weeks to help induce labour if the heads engaged.
