Best taken fresh and raw. Statistically speaking, the chemicals which pineapple contain, which are said to start labor aren't very high. So that means about 7 pineapples should put you into labor!

I love pineapple. But realistically by the time you eat enough pineapple to do anything, your mouth would hurt!

I'm having a lot of problems GETTING the b**b in her mouth :( I'm pumping & formula feeding right now. It is frustrating because I want to breastfeed but it's just not working.

Ya.. well I just posted a new one about my "progress" today and he was at the appointmen, so I'm hoping he will change his mind now.. And the doctor also felt baby's head soo and moved up my appt so i think hubby is thinking twice now... still praying, but ya.. i definitely agree with the spite thing.. I was hoping to have my son early anyway, but now if he would go still I would also would hope to have him outta spite too.. not nice, but he should think about that as a real possibility when making this decision.. this pregnancy isnt gonna last forever...

Would he be upset if he didnt go and you didnt have the baby? I wouldnt want him to go but would leave the decision up to him. With no guilt tripping or anything. I'd tell him what I want him to do but understand that this is also important to him and suggest going another time, maybe after the baby is born.

I'm over it I guess.. It will be something he has to deal with either way but the baby is only gonna be born once.. and he swears he dsnt want more kids. He missed the birth of his other son, 17 years ago, so i would just think he would not wanna risk it again. If I end up in L&D all alone, he will also have to deal with the resentment I have for him along with his guilt.. I can't imagine the guilt he'd feel the other way from not seeing his cousin could even remotely compare to either of those things.



Im just ESTATIC with my progress today, and gonna just embrash and relish the fact my son will be here SOON....
