Citrus cravings

I'm now 4 months into growing a baby belly and of all things I am happiest about {not including the actual baby of course} is the fact that I can now have citrus again. Thanks to Gerd, I had to give up all things citrus-y years ago- goodbye lemons, oranges, grapefruit and even tomatoes. But thanks to a growing baby bump it seems I can now handle it all again! Hooray. I must say, I was a bit concerned as to how my stomach issue would handle a little one but turns out that is all baby wants. I think in the last few weeks I've been able to eat oranges, tangerines and clementines daily which is fantastic since it works as a great way to absorb iron from all my green veggies. Yay for pregnancy! Any Mom's out there have weird cravings while you were preggo? For me I can't seem to get enough fruit in my body.

Oh how I love watermelon too but after eating it later in the evening I had horrible nightmares all night long! Read it can make pregnant women have them...since then I've been more of a cantaloupe fan, those were some scary dreams.
