  • I ate a shit load. Doesn't work. Your baby will come when it's good and ready.

  • LOL!!! I am laughing because seriously..5 months ago...I was right where you are at! My baby boy did not want to come out!! Girl...I googled up and tried just about everything to make this boy come..I ended up having a c-section after he was 6 days overdue!! I ate a whole can of pineapple for about 5 days straight..didnt work for mght for you, you never know. Just don't buy the crushed pineappla and try to eat that straight from the can..the texture made me puke! LOL ew
