    Right, don't fancy trying the castor oil yet but I love pineapple anyway and heard it can help move things along?

    I am due in 5 days so is it a good time to try it?!

    Also does it have to be fresh pineapple etc?

    Also any others? Thanks

    it has to be fresh ones cos they have an enzyme in that goes when they're tinned!

    Its gotta be fresh, and its only a certain part of the pineapple, and you'd have to eat 8 of the certain part of the pineapple before it will take any effect! Good luck!

    I brought on labor by allowing his semen to penetrate my cervix. About 4 or 5 hrs after intercourse, I went right into labor and was fully dilated by the time I reached the hospital.

    The day before I went into labour.......... i ate fresh pineapple, had :sex: had 2 raspberry leaf tablets instead of just the one....... and put Lavender oil in my bath.

    No idea if any of these were why I went into labour but hey! I like to think it helped!

    The certain part of the pineapple is just the core, which isn't in tact in canned pineapple.


    So the grossest part of the pineapple.
