My birth ball and my body pillow were my best friends during late pregnancy, and I used the birth ball and a giant bean bag extensively during my labor.
I still love arching my back and stretching on my ball now, since I'm not quite up to 100% as far as muscular strength goes after my surgery. And I figure before too long, my daughter will enjoy bouncing/playing on it. (We had some similar balls at the school I worked at, and the toddlers LOVED playing, bouncing, and rolling with them)
I think that was one of the best $30 investments I've made. Even my husband likes to sit on the ball and rock/softly bounce the baby.
