    Default This is going to sound dumb, but...

    I got a pineapple last week for 0.99! A whole, fresh pineapple. I thought...I'll just hold on to it until I'm ready (to you know...eat the whole thing and go into labor ). But it seems that wasn't a great idea because they don't just stay good in their shells for awhile. Theoretically I should have put it in the fridge right away. If I cut it open it will only stay good for about 3-5 days. I have TONS of frozen pineapple already so while freezing is an option, it would be super redundant.

    I guess I'm afraid that if I go ahead and eat it, I'll start something I didn't intend to.

    That's crazy, right? My body won't start labor unless it's ready to...right?

    Yeah, I doubt a piece of fruit has the power to completely kick start you from zero to labor. Remember everything that Mariah did and I don't believe she was able to trigger early labor.

    I know, right?? Maybe you should just make sure you don't chant the labor incantation WHILE eating the pineapple.

    I ate 3 whole freaking pineapples around 38wks with my last baby and all I got was mouth ulcers despite being 4cm dilated and having bloody show for 2wks...Dorcas, silly me forgot the incantation !!

    I'd eat it and enjoy without fear

    Oh, and for the record, lol, I wasn't trying to kickstart labor because I was tired of being pg ...we were in the process of relocating and dh was staying 2.5hrs away Mon-Fri. Since he would be home that weekend, and knowing I was dilated to 4cm/having bloody show for 2wks, I started eating pineapple on Thursday, had my midwife strip my membranes on Friday, and continued to eat pineapple throughout the weekend. It was a no-go and my water ended up breaking at 2am the following Wednesday morning...no contrx for 24hrs, gbs + so I was induced, and dh obviously made it in plenty of time despite my worries . And it wasn't the pineapple/stripping membranes that caused my water to break either since that's just me...it has happened that way with my last 3 kiddos and with one other, water breaks and no contrx .

    Stepping in to say: I've heard it can work but, it could be an old wive's tail I don't see the harm in eating it now if you want to.

    Eat it. But try this.

    1 tbsp olive oil
    2 tbsp honey
    1 tbsp lime juice
    1 tsp cinnamon

    Mix together and coat the cut wedges. Cook it....I have done grilled or just in a pan on the stove. 4-5 minutes and flip them for another 4-5 minutes. Eat it warm.

    I don't really care that much for pineapple but this is so incredible.

    It's like a party in your mouth. i have made it three times in three weeks and probably will keep on making it once a week.

    I heard you have to eat like 7 pineapples for that whole thing to work. I think you're fine with just the one.

    I think just the fact that someone eats so many pineapples in 1 sitting will make the baby want to get out lol and think of all the heartburn you'll get!
