Will lemons harm my baby? i am 8 wks and have to have at least 1 or 2 lemons, i love the smell also, it somehow eases my nauseas feeling and keeps getting sick at bay. I really enjoy the lemons?

What could this be signalling? a lack of vitamin C perhaps? any harm?

Lemons will not harm the baby. There are many cravings which occur in pregnancy. Tis is a hormonal effect rather than a lack of something.
