So, you always here of this or that food that helped someone finally go into labor.
With me, I swear it was the long walk and banana milkshake that finally got things going.
For a friend of mine, it was borscht.
I want to know what foods others have sworn to you work, or that you feel helped you in a previous pg. Recipes or take out info is great if you have it.
Maybe we can feed Jeliphish into labor!

I had hot wings immediately before I went into labor, I doubt they had anything to do with it though. We were at a BBQ and this really mean, vulgar major insisted that I would go into labor after eating them. I just glared at him and told him not to test the pregnant woman. Sure enough, about 10 minutes after leaving the BBQ my contractions started

Ok, Jeliphish, I hope you're making a grocery list.

You need:

Appetizer:
Extra hot chicken wings

Main Course:
Borcht and Pineapple....TONS of pineapple.

Dessert:
12 Reese cups and a banana milkshake

pineapple is such a cruel food! If I eat it fresh, even a little bit, my mouth hurts
I think its too acidic for me. Every once in a while I can eat 1 or 2 little bites, but I don't dare eat more than that because it hurts for a couple days! Even when dh made me a smoothie that was pretty much just from a bag of frozen mixed fruit that happened to have pineapple in it, THAT hurt me. Canned is fine though. And I looooove pineapple!

I had always heard that greasy pizza does the trick.

So, with dd, dh and I went and had greasy pizza and to a movie. That night I went into labor around 1am.

But, I also went and had a massage that day and walked around downtown for like 3 hours. Hard to know which things contributed more, or if it was just the combination of all those things. Or none and that baby was just ready?
