I've been craving pickles like crazy. I'm going on my 8th week and just this past Sat I had 4 pickles back to back. Is this bad?

It can be if you eat them by the jars. They are very high in sodium.

hmmmm pickles... loooove pickles, hmmmmm....

Nope, not gonna hurt you. Just make sure to try to get a bunch of other nutrients into your system as well. Also, E was right, they are very high in sodium, so just make sure you're drinking about 10 gla__ses of water per day to flush all that salt out. Happy pickle eating!

I don't get it I always ate pickles and pickled eggs by the ton and now that I am pregnant I can't even smell them without throwing up. I am jealous. I have been craving weird things like sugar snap peas and broccoli.

Hey don't worry, I am in my 9th week and I have been having the same craving of pickles. I even made my husband go out and buy me some of my favorite pickles.

For about 2 months I was having one pickle every night religiously. Now I am off the pickle thing.

On the contrary. Pickles are actually good for you but they are high in sodium. My grandmother swears by pickle juice. Says it soothes the stomach maybe that's why all these pregnant women are craving them?? HMMM I never did crave pickles though

I know lost of people who use pickles/pickle juice to help with an upset stomach. It really works. they are High in sodium though. I ate them by the jar all the time until I found out I have pregnancy induced hypertension and now I have to monitor my sodium intake. I will usually eat 1/3 of a pickle now though.
