PESTO!!

Postby Dunes » Fri Feb 08, 2013 9:22 pm

I swear putting pesto on my chicken made me go into labor with DS. That night I lost my plug at 39 weeks. I wonder if it was just a coincidence??

Anyone ready to pop want to test this theory??

I think it's the basil, so buying some and blending it up with garlic, oil, etc. would be the most potent way to eat it. I made some from out of the garden, but I'm sure a bought jar would work too.

A yummy way to induce labor, anyway! I have heard spicy foods or foods with a lot of "volatile oils" like certain spices/herbs, can start labor up. But I think your body has to be heading that direction anyway, or it wouldn't work?

Ya, it's probably just a coincidence, but I'll be trying it again this time around! LOL.
