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.

I never had that urge...but while I'm pregnant I love the smell of lemons b/c they smell so clean.
i love the smell yes. but craving eating soap isnt a good thing while prego. you may want to speak to your doctor
craving things like that is actually very normal. You can also crave things like dirt, clay, and chalk. This means that your iron is low or you have some other form of deficiency. You should probably talk to your doctor about it. It's not bad, its just your body's way of telling you that you need more nutrients.
