For the pineapple to work, you have to eat a lot of it, not just one. I am guessing it was something besides the pineapple. And you still have time until that baby is due. Don't rush it. Don't want him to come before he is ready,

Good grief, that makes zero sense. If you are trying to see if it works then you are trying to rush it. Stop trying to bring on labor, your baby will come when he is ready. Try it when you are overdue.

Sounds interesting. I don't like pineapple but it'd be worth a try if I were absolutely desperate. Looks like I may be another two weeks if my body don't start cooperating. Lol.

I was dilated. It's hard to say what 'works' because you can't know 100% for sure if it was that or not that put you in labour. You might've gone into labour anyway and it was just a coincidence but you can't know for sure.
