watermelon pregnancyThis might be the best food news I've heard since I've been pregnant -- watermelon is really good for me and the development of my babies!

Thank goodness because I love watermelons and am craving fruit all the time.

Fit Pregnancy featured all the benefits of this juicy summer fruit for us.

Watermelons...

  • ease heartburn.
  • reduce swelling.
  • help with morning sickness.
  • are very hydrating with their water content.
  • help prevent muscle cramps in third trimester.

  • aid in development of baby's brain, vision, nervous and immune systems, and more.
