    Is it possible to bounce on a ball too early? Is it something you should do to help baby move down for labour and therefore not a good idea before 37 weeks?

    just wondering!

    I've been bouncing on mine for agessss, probably since 28 weeks or similar.

    Baby isn't here yet haha.

    But I don't know the official advice sorry x

    I think its fine to bounce on it whenever - I'm planning to get one today as my baby is currently breech and apparently it can help them turn, its also good for posture and pregnancy aches and pains etc x

    Aslong as you don't over do it, it's great for more than just bouncing. All the rolling movements and stuff are good and just sitting on it when it gets to a point it hurts sitting even on a sofa lol I'm usually perched on mine in front of tv!

    Yeah as the girls say you can bounce on it anytime. I've been using mine since about 27 weeks. It really helps with my lower back as it's so good for your posture. So go for it!

    Don't bounce too hard but I was using one pre-pregnancy for core exercises and balance for my sciatica. It is great for optimal fetal positioning and PGP.
