4. There May Be a Reason You Crave Pickles

Some scientists have said that the reason so many pregnant women crave pickles while pregnant is not in the pickle itself, but rather it's preservatives. Vinegar is said to help your body naturally break down calcium so that your body can absorb it easier.

And it's a known fact that women who are pregnant need more calcium in their diet for the sake of their baby. So, maybe it's your body's natural way to make sure you get lots of calcium where it needs to go in yours and your baby's body! Another reason could be that your body is deficient in salt, and is getting the needed salt out of the pickles you're eating.
