Has anyone ever heard about the connection between eating up to 8 oz. of fresh pineapple / day and fertility?

Wow Ruth, I was sure we were the only ones with the elephant statue at the doorway of our room, the dragon on DH's side.

Just wanted to chime in on having used the pineapple myself for several cycles in the past.

DH says "Chicita" if we have a girl...Ha!


In reality the pineapple was so sweet I think all I got was a toothache...and unless I see AF I can't even get Xrayed at the dentist

pix, LOL! Dianne is a nice name if I do say so myself, but DOLE, hey, now that is original!! LOL


OK, here I go after work on the pineapple hunt. LOL! I am 1 DPO so the timing couldn't be better. :) The part about "risk of miscarriage" kind of freaked me out though, so I am probably not going to eat a whole one. I will eat the core though, if I can steal it from DH. He loves to gnaw on that junk, why, I have no idea!
