Lol as long as you take your prenatals and eat things other than candy you're fine. Yesterday I walked past a vending machine and saw a baby ruth and had to have it lol I crave cheeseburgers mostly though and anything with garlic. As far as sweet stuff goes I mostly crave ice cream like sometimes i'd punch someone in the face for a root beer float lol.

Sour patch kids too!! I'm 20 weeks and hungry all the time. I crave alot of salt followed by sweets. Latest is my sour patch kid kick. Lol. No harm as long as its in moderation. Also craving alcohol. Beer, and wine mostly but that craving I ignore obviously. Lol. The other night my hubby had a carona w lime and my mouth was watering. :(

In my second trimester I craved a lott of candy and beef jerky. And I ate what I craved. (:
Before I was pregnant I went like a year without eating candy.. just wasn't my thing.
Now, with 5 weeks left in my pregnancy I crave and eat a lot of reeses cups. (:
Just make sure you're still eating healthy, and taking prenatals, and baby will be fine.
Also, if there's a chance you gave GD, id take it easy on the candy intake.

You guys are lucky!  I was a big candy lover before but Baby does not like it. so I haven't really had any candy unless I want to make sure everything is ok.   I normally get a kick or 2 from a single gummy bear!

I'm 21w5d and crave chocolate and beef jerky. Lol. I never hardly ate chocolate and now it's all I want. I try so hard not to eat more than like 5 Hershey kisses a day because I don't know if it's okay to have chocolate and because it makes my ski. Break out.
