Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

It's normal. I am also 20 weeks (having a boy) and want spicy food (not salty). Some women get a sweeter tooth while other prefer salty/spicy. I would just say to limit your salt intake. Good luck!

Its perfectly normal. Usually when cravings like that hit its because your body is needing something and your not getting enough. I'm about 24 weeks and lately I've been craving salty/sweet foods. Its a very hard combination to find.
