Although I never eat pickles, and wondered why some women crave them in pregnancy, I’ve been feeling otherwise with my second pregnancy.
I’m craving for them big time. Especially Indian/Desi pickles (spicy mix of mangoes, carrots, lime) the sour tasts brings absolute joy. It’s weird. Did crave for pickles in pregnancy? Wonder what kind of pickles would be safe for preg though (given the heart burns or other issues that come along with it)

  • I’m not much help but I am craiving pickles with block cheese. It is so good! I can’t get enough I am addicted.

  • try the pickle! i went off water. it was hard as that is generally all i drink. i had to have really small sips of water otherwise i would throw up. i could sometimes have fruit juice, but again not too much in one go.

  • I had too much morning sickness to have any cravings. With both pregnancies sadly

  • I craved watermelon in both mine!

  • I always craved sour over sweet too!

  • I love pickles and have always eaten them with no problems.

  • I never craved anything bizarre! I always wonder why that happens

  • Spicy food is inclined to give you heartburn, perhaps even vomiting.
    I hope you don’t still crave them after the birth of your baby if you breastfeed,

  • Like all cravings (whether pregnant or not) it’s generally that your body is lacking it. The strange thing is everything my mum craved when pregnant with me I hate!

  • I never craved pickles – luckily, as I hate them!
