I am 30 weeks and have craved celery, cucumber and red grapes throughout my pregnancy. Mostly celery, which I thought was a good thing to crave as its healthy. I googled it to see how common it was and it said can cause early labour,contractions and the baby to be lively in the womb - I ate a whole bunch last night and have to admit the baby did not stop moving all night - Has any one else heard this as I do not want to bring on early labour!!
I ate shed loads of celery when preg with DD1 and have done this time too. Never heard of it being bad in fact it keeps you regular, well hydrated and has lots of Vitamin C. And it is the perfect vehicle for hommous or philli which very much cancels out the zero calorie snack.
I've had Gestational Diabetes with both my pregnancies so have had to find alternative munchies and celery has always been a daily intake.
For the record DD1 was born 2 days before her due date.
