Small Ball

Jessica and I picked up an excercise ball a few days back for use as a “birthing ball” when she goes into labor. Our Lamaze instructor had reminded us repeatedly to get the correct size ball for the mom’s height, so we purchased the Small size, which is for people 5’0″ – 5’5″ tall. Great, right?

Of course not.

Small is probably the right size for a 5’2″ person doing yoga with an excercise ball, but it is definitely not the correct size for a 5’2″ woman trying to do labor positioning with one. I could tell the second I inflated it this afternoon — it looked like a kickball. Just to confirm that it was as bad as it seemed I had Jessica give it a spin. At least we got a few laughs out of it.

So I’m off to the sporting goods store sometime this week to do an exchange for a size Medium, and I’m 0 for 2 on the pregnancy chore score list.
