    Ok so I had my fair tries in trying to get this little guy out. I decided to try pineapple tonight. OMGGGGGGGGG I feel like I have eaten glassssss! Literally! I ate one entire pineapple and my lips and mouth kill.Tomorrow when I eat my other one ill be cutting it up into bite size pieces. Wow pineapple ladies is brutal!

    I decided to buy the pineapple because I am getting lots of contractions. Nothing regular but I got tuns today.

    hiya - pineapple has this affect in me too but when i told some of my friends they thought it was really odd. i honestly felt like i had burnt my mouth and it hurt for about two days afterwards. i thought that maybe I was allergic!!

    hope your baby comes soon

    xx

    Hey Janis hun, how are you doing today? Looks like our little babes are sure happy and comfy where they are! I'm only 2 days overdue now but as I expected her to be 7-10 days early and have been having stronger BHs / mild contractions for the last 7-10 days, it seems to be dragging now. I have tried EVERYTHING - pineapple, raspberry leaf tea, sex sex and more sex, nipple stimulation, spicy curry, long walks, bouncing / squatting etc etc. This truly is a little madam and is making everyone wait until shes finally ready to make an appearance!

    My tummy is red raw from my scratching :( I put cream/oil on it about 10 times a day but the pressure is making it itch soooo bad.

    Hope things speed up for you soon sweetie, don't make yourself ill in the meantime though xx

    I'm allergic to pineapple and this is exactly what happens if I eat it so I would say you are slightly allergic to it. Same happens to me with kiwis too. Strangely enough I am fine with tinned pineapple, dunno if you can eat that instead or whether it has to be fresh?

    i think the reason pinapple has this effect is because when you eat a large amount of it the citric acid errods your mouth and causes the burning.

    But hopefully it works for you. I never heard of pinapple being a labor enducer....i will definitely have to remember that!

    Is it like when you eat lots of salt and vinegar chips?? Or lots of sour patch kids?? I know I get like that if I eat a lot of either. I think the acid burns my tongue.

    Oh yeah...watch all that pineapple!! That's lots of sugar woman!!! Watch your sugar!

    Hahahaha yep chann that's why I made sure it was 2 hours after a meal :D wierd thing is sugar stayed well normal range :D :D I bet if I ate it for breakfast my sugar would sky rocket.
    For some reason breakfasts are my higher points in the day.
    It's worse then eating too much salt and vin chips. Feels gritty and hurts and literally get cuts from it if you eat it the way i did.

    I think you have to eat 4-6 fresh pineapples for it to work mommydrgnfly. Some woman wont dare till they are due though.
