from what i understand there is no adequate research linking eating pineapple to miscarriage
I think you have to eat like 7 whole pineapples to cause any harm at all.
Quoting ℳary ℐane:" canned pineapple? "
no, fresh. I got from king soopers it comes pre-cut and washed in tubs.
I've been eating a lot of pineapple, so I hope not. I think you'd have to eat a ton of it for it do anything.
I ate pineapple all the time... 3 healthy babies later I would have to say ITS OK!
Supposedly it can induce labor if you eat enough so I would guess there is a risk
It seems like everything I eat causes miscarriages :lol:. I wouldn't worry about it, lol.

Kinda like you can have a cocaine overdose on like 20 lbs of dark chocolate.... It's not going to happen.
I eat pineapple. Ate quite a bit of it after I first found out I was pregnant. I couldn't eat a lot of cooked food(hot food didn't sit well on my stomach), so I ate fresh fruits and veggies all the time. I am currently 23 weeks pregnant with a very healthy baby boy.
I believe it is bad in large quantities.
I've ate fresh pineapple my entire pregnancy and am 39 weeks and 3 days. I would say there is no need to worry.:D
