I always liked apples, but never like this. I eat a couple of them every day, and today I have this mad craving for cider (after reading the unpasteurized cider thread).

Could it be linked to my baby's love of them? She/he goes bounces around like a jumping bean when/after I eat them.

If I have a girl, I'm almost tempted to name her "Apple."

I'm right with you craving the apples. I'm on a diabetic diet though so I have to watch how many I have and definately won't have cider. I also craved apples when I was pg with DD. (Though it was dairy when I was pg with DS).

I've been completely hooked on apples lately too. I've never liked apple juice but I've been scarfing down the apples.

How funny, I've been eating a ton of apples recently, too! Normally I'm not really an apple person... I've also been craving grapes.

This entire (prolonged!) pregnancy, I have pretty much eaten at least one apple a day. I told my DH that I'm going to be surprised if dd doesn't love apples!

Me too! I usually eat at least two every day. And my baby seems to love them. She gets so wiggly. But I have to admit I was eating a pound of strawberries and at least one peach a day before I started in on the apples.

I couldn't get enough apples (esp. Golden Delicious) when pg with DS3. I probably had 5 or 6 a day. Now, don't get me started on the caramel dip...

Apple is a great NICKNAME. (LOL sorry, I'm so afraid that name will take off) I've been craving all kinds of fruit including apples, I can't have more than a sip of cider though due to the sugar, however, whole apples fresh do not seem to be a problem, they have enough fiber to balance the sugar. Its apple season so enjoy!

I've been craving apples this whole pregnancy too!! I actually read somewhere (can't remember where) that apples are one of the most common cravings of pregnant women.

I've been really digging apples with just a dash of caramel sauce every now and then. Not that many a day but several times a week.

Mmmmm... Apples with PB! If my darn heartburn wasn't so active, I'd be eating them all day.

I'm also finding an amazing enjoyment of apples with thinly sliced extra sharp cheddar cheese. It's soooooo good—almost decadent.

I'm actually planning to surprise my husband with fondue this week, and one of the things we'll be dipping are granny smith slices.
