hey girls I have a question for those of you who have exercise b___s. Do you just use it to sit on instead of a chair or do you all actually do certain exercises on them? I got mine from a friend so it didn't come with any instructions or anything on what kind of exercises you could do so I really have no idea how to use it other than sitting on it...?


sashasmama - June 13

You can bounce on it now to help the baby drop lower and during early labor for pain relief. You can't really do any excersizes on it while prego I don't think. I might be wrong though, but I mostly see them being used for muscle strengthening, like crunches and leg raises while you're on it on your tummy. You can also do some excersizes with weights, like chest press while on it.

hey ladies =] well im still pregnant =] im happy for that hehe. i know my son is A ok.; mean ill be 37 weeks tomorrow =] yah. two of my friends have had there babies now today my second friend had her son=== im having all the signs she had right before labor so im praying that im a go this time hehe. she got to l nd & was 5 cms[finally she was stuck at 3cms like me] i didnt have my dr appt thursday due to the flooding here its horrible if u have myspace u can see my photos its horrible here; we finally crested today at a RECORD high of 31.12 ft 1993s flood here the crest was 19. some feet so we have way majorly topped that (although its crested already it is starting to go down they are expecting it to be 19 ft by next FRIDAY!) thats not even below flood level---flood level is 12 ft! so we have a while before things get back to normal here.

I am really upset with my self.. all day Lia has been on a weird position so.. i was outside n my neices vollyball rolls down the hill.. and without thinking i run for it. Ever since that ive been in a ma__sive pain. its just pressure on my lower Vag. when i walk my hips hurt.. and she moves down i can feel it. i dont think nothing is wrong. But i feel too much pressure. i didnt really run fast it was more of a fast past walk... i dont know what to think.

Hey girls just got home. I had my doctor's appointment to day...Im now 37 weeks and I was 2 cm dialated and well didn't tell me how much effaced I was...I just know its still progressing. My doctor said he could feel her head when he checked my cervix, Crazy! Well Im all excited im progressing so well with my first. I also went to Senator Jake Flake's funeral...it was really long, But it was really neat. Very full. Our Govenor was there for it. Soo cool. Went shopping some I got me a new shirt Its says "America's Next Top Mommy" haha I love the Top Model show...so I had to get it, plus its purple. Got a few little things I needed for Brooklynn...So how is everyone today?

Hiya pals....LOL .....I am finally sitting down I have been on the go all day long!!! Marcy has run me all over this High Desert and we are pooped......we just came back for eating Sushi it was so so so good ....Samantha there really isn't much you can do on the exercise ball while preggers but small bounces and just sitting on it help bring the baby down and relieve pressure off of your pelvis....Ok girls we are going to relax now and watch a movie then I will head home to a hopefully h__y husband....LOL I think it's safe for us to do it now since my mom will be here Sunday afternoon.....She is getting a direct flight to Vegas...ladies I will check in later not sure if it will be tonight or tomorrow.....oh and skirts are bad for me because I think I have chaffed my thighs where they rub together....yeow!! lol

Hey girls, haven't had a chance to read yet...going to breakfast with my mom first and then I will check back in but wanted to post about my night last night! GEEZ....I had my appt. yesterday and she said I was 1cm dilated and 70% effaced so I go home and helped my mom clean. I tried to keep it easy but was on my feet a lot. Then we went to walmart and walked around for ages, THEN the mall to go to a store she needed to get some shoes at. By that time I was hurting so bad in my lower back I could barely walk and I had flip flops on this whole time which made my feet feel like they were going to explode! Then I had to run into babies r us for a sheet and by this time thinking I just want to get home as it was almost 9pm. Now really up to now everything has been peachy and all of a sudden the back pain, feet and contractions all hit at once along with the feeling I couldn't breathe well and being nauseated. I never complain about this stuff but it was scary. So I get home to relax and started to notice the contractions were more painful (lots of back action in there) so I drank water and laid in a reclining position on the couch. They came every 5 minutes for about 2 hours and we all watched a movie and ate pizza eventually I started to get tired and realized as I was dozing that they were getting further apart then I fell asleep. I woke up to no back pain and no contractions so I was on the verge of going to l&d, but glad I didn't b/c apparently it was false labor. Kinda freaked me out...Must have been from all the activity yesterday.

kendra.marie - June 14

once again a night at labor & delivery ladies im almost 4 cms dilated & contractions every 3 minutes but im not dilating ne more (they wanted me to try a whirlpool; but do to the conditions here in iowa we only have 25% of water left in our tanks if that runs out we have no water!!!!) so i couldnt do that---they just had me walk that just made contractions stronger no more dilationg or nothing so they sent me home-- contractions were horrible so they told me go walk alot try squats ect to get things going they even recommened some good s_x =] they know im almost there its just to the point where im not going ne where again. so we will see what happens =]


kolleen_caudillo - June 14

Kendra that sucks that your having such a long labor...hopefully you get some kind of relief soon.


kendra.marie - June 14

kolleen---ive read baout it but not tried it im a bit scared to to be honest; so i tihnk ill hold off. they said walking, squatting, excerise or birth ball, and s_x should hopefully help. TINA- as for green discharge my doctor thought it was from me getting over my UTI n the pills i was on i only had it liek 3 times that day n never since. well i lost my plug on teh 1st n it regrew & im losing it as of right now (so im thinking i must or might be dilating right now (if im losing the plug again? right cuz u lose it as your dilating) so yah. i know im more then frustered lol but waht can i do? the longer hes in the better off but the earlier hes out the better for me haha. but its about him right now so its okay i just had the constant contractions with no dilation. =[ so we can only hope n see right? but thats how i was with kelsey once i got to 1.5 cms i couldnt get farther until they gave me pitocin. =[ but since im 37 weeks they will give it to me now with good constant n stronger contractions =] so im a bit excited i will defiently text u if i go n & they actually admit me n keep me to have a baby =] i will keep you ladies as informed as i am lol. but i dont want to text u all saying its the real deal n it not be again lol.
