I'm sitting here trying to eat a fresh pineapple to soften my cervix. It's worked for me both times before. With DS2 I ate two in like one evening. I have no idea how I did it because I'm not even half way through this one and I'm done.
Any other "natural" labor inducing tricks =)

Thank you Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggy!

Doesn't it make your tongue hurt to eat so much fresh pineapple?

wow, 2 in one night is impressive!! i dont think i could get that much down, lol.

Have you tried EPO to ripen your cervix, you can insert it vaginally or take it orally, or do both. Some ladies on here swear by it. Ive been trying it for 3 weeks but dont know if it has dont anything yet. Ive only been taking it orally. I might try vaginally though, still unsure about it.

Sex lol easier said than done at this point! Eggplant, mango, kiwi, bouncing on an excersize ball (or just the couch), walking.

I want a fresh pineapple so bad, I think it will help me cause I was eating it before I had good contractions on saturday, but also because I just love pineapple and am totally craving it but I have no car right now. I wish you could beam stuff through the computer I would finish yours.

I have no clue how I downed two in one night either - guess I was desperate. I'm not that desperate now, but I'm still going to try to finish it soon.
I haven't tried EPO - I can't swallow pills and I'm unsure about inserting it vaginally.
Oh and Becky I have another one I could send you. DH likes to buy whole ones (I get the cored ones because I'm not good with knives) and then he never cuts it for me. Last time he bought two and they both went in the trash after they rotted. He brought another one home and I kind of scolded him about it and he said it was for decoration - like buying me flowers =) he's so silly!
