    I am just about to chop and juice 5 pineapples and see if that does anything hehe. I might try and make a sorbet or something with the pulp that is left.

    Figured may as well try this old wives tale as i can't have RLT, hate spice and SPD means no DTD :-(

    anyone else tried? I know your meant to have 8 or something but they only had 5 in shop haha x

    I didn't try pineapples but I did try massaging clary sage oil into my bump (diluted of course) and put into my bath and I went into labour after two days of doing that. I was over due at the time though x good luck xx

    MW told me that pineapple doesnt actually bring on labour but softens the cervix ready for labour, as i asked last time around i still ate it though anything for an easier time :) xx

    It is supposed to help induce labour. I also used it during labour in my bath and in an oil burner with lavender.

    Haha yup send him.

    There are a few recipes that came up when i googled it. But i used a simple one where you just add sugar and lemon juice and bung it in the freezer. Its looking good as had to stir it a hour ago. So will see what it actually tastes likes later this eve. Figured rather than waste the pulp as i juiced 3 pineapples would be good way to use it. Just eaten half another pineapple - not as nice as juice but i think your meant to eat it rather than juice. Who knows!! x
