Hello everyone... I am starting my cravings well actually they started a little while ago. I crave strawberries like crazy and then one day I found ham. Not deli meat ham but real ham and ohhhh my. Ham is now the best thing since sliced bread let me tell you. However, I was told by someone at work that I should not be eating ham because of the salt. Its really one of the few things I really enjoy and I really am not much of a salt person so I don't have much salt in my diet. Yet if  this is true I want to stop now. Anyone hear anything about to much salt or ham... let me know

PS What are your cravings?

Thanks
Quinn

Ham does have a lot of salt in it.. Drink a lot of water to help get the salt out of your body.. Look to see if you can find low sodium ham.. I can eat ham every day!!! and that is not a pregnancy craving..

Honestly, coming from the medical field, alot of people freak about Salt and High BP.....If your body is sensitive to salt, then yes, it may cause issues, however...salt isnt the cause of High BP.....I personally have H. BP right now at 18wks, and i dont eat much salt at all....but to play it safe, i'd drink water to help equalize the salt in your body.....(thats just me)
