    Red face Pineapple & Pregnancy

    Probably the silliest, most paranoid pregnancy question ever

    I've been reading a few threads in here about natural induction methods. One method was to eat alot of pineapple. I'd never heard of this before!

    I looooove pineapple and have eaten nearly 2 pineapples inthe last week or so. When I eat it, Mini goes nuts. I just asssumed she liked the sugar and that it was cold.

    So is the 'eating pineapple to bring on labour' a wives tale or is there any truth to it? Should I not be eating it?

    Hehehe I feel silly

    Old wives tale i reckon...

    When i was 41+4 weeks i ate 2 whole pineapples in 1 day...and then another the next day...i tell ya it did nothing but make me vomit lol.

    I doubt 2 pineapples in a week is going to do much...

    I think the point of it is like with any fruit, too much gives you the runs, which gives you cramps that can start the ball rolling.

    FOB - Ohh thats a good point. Fruit doesn't do that to me so I should be right!

    Panda, yeah I doubt it too. It was just the fact that Mini would get hypo after it made me wonder if something was happening in there

    Hmmm, I've only ever heard about eating a heap of pineapple to assist with implantation.

    I wonder which one is right? It couldn't be both surely as the required result is at opposite ends of the spectrum.

    I love pineapple and eat the fresh stuff nearly everyday, have since the start of this pregnancy. Usually I dont eat heaps but somedays I really get the taste for it and could eat about half !
    I havent even had any BH so I am doubting the pineapple/bringing on labour theory - unless you need to eat a whole one or two each day!
    Keep enjoying I say!
