    kbrooke- i was at the dr. yest. morning and asked him about the pineapple. pineapple has some enztme in it that causes your cervix to thin as labor gets closer. he advised me that it is perfectly SAFE to eat the pineapple but towards the end, it might make things progress a little bit faster when your body is ready for labor.
