I'm so glad to hear that I can eat lemons and not feel guilty about it! I also usually brush my teeth after I eat lemons, mostly because if I don't later my mouth/teeth hurt!

I suffered from hypermeseis during the beginning of my pregnancy and lemon water was the only thing that helped at all (minus the prescription anti-nauseant which I did not want to rely on too much)

I craved lemons too in my first tri -- I would eat them until my mouth burned! I also fantasized about lemon juice over crushed ice (I only have cubes at home which is definitely not the same).

They're also an excellent source of Vit C and fiber and have much lower calories than oranges.

well people worry about the teeth but I've been sucking them everyday for almost ever and my enamel hasn't been hurt at all..But that's cause I brush my teeth right after.

The biggest concern is with your teeth. The acid in lemons is strong enough to harm enamel. Sucking on lemons is probably not the best. Enjoying lemon is water, tea, etc...is fine.

I love to eat lemons!! My favorite is lemon juice over crushed ice. I could drink this all day. I guess I'm not the only weird one.

lemons reduce swelling in pregnancy also. When you get further along and start swelling, place lemon slices in your water and it will help.

Beware of eating too many lemons though. Lemons do wear the enamel off of your teeth.

I have been craving lemons! And I was just wondering if it's bad to indulge during pregnancy. I'm only 5 1/2 weeks along, so are the cravings going to get worse?
