  • Could be something in the nutrition of pickles or inthe brine they use to make them. I still crave pickles and I havn't been preggo for 19 years.

  • No pickles for me...Olives all the way.LOL It is the body asking for certain nutrients in the food that we crave.

  • the first kid i craved soft pretzels and frozen gushers... and this one i wanted watermelon (thank goodness it's in season)... could just be the sodium, taste, etc that's in it... i usually love pickles anytime weather i'm prego or not.
