exercise ball

Has anyone used or know of anyone that has used an exercise ball to help get labor going or make baby drop or help them to dilate?

I'm using one right now for all of that. since I've been using it I'm dilated 2 cm. baby is in position and way dropped down there. but I can't guarantee that that's whats caused it. I do plan on using it during labor as well.

I was 37 the last time I got checked, I'll go Wednesday to find out if I've dilated anymore at 38 weeks 3 days.
