so im 38 weeks pregnant baby is down and ready to go...i have been having light contractions but they come and go...i read somewhere that pineapple induces labor? i know it has to be fresh but how much do u have to eat and how long would it take to start the contractions
I have to ageee with the previous poster on this one. Im 40 weeks 3days pregnant with my first baby and I believe they only come when they are ready. I can tell you though from my experience pineapple did not work for me, lol but it cured my craving. I ate almost half of a fresh pineapple! Also it gave me heartburn. Also at 38 weeks your baby has a bit more growing to do and I wouldnt try anything thing to induce just yet. Hang in there the finish line is close :)
try walking a lot! and once you start having real contractions don't stop walking until you are ready to push, I did it and I swear to you I barely felt the contractions, but I'm sorry to tell you that after that its hell, but very well worth it <3
