I dunno, maybe a bit risky as they are quite watery! It may affect your bowels!

That's what i thought too - but if your consitpated then prob ok. Also if you cut the rind off they don't make you burp as much (if they effect you that way) lol.

enjoy your cucumbers!

I desperately want cucumber too! It's mainly water so can't see why it would be a problem - it'll probably keep you hydrated in the heat x

I can think of much worse things you could eat too much of

My coworker used to eat one whole cucumber at every break when she was pregnant, but she was peeing all the time, I don't know about her #2s though

it could be the heat. I have been craving also high fruit content stuff like cucumber and watermelon. I think it's impossible to overeat cucumbers

OMG I had this during my first pregnancy!! Was really strange! I was still living at my mum's at the time and her house had never been cleaner
This time round I gotta say I dont seem to really have any wierd cravings yet.... YET!!!!

As for the cucumber issue.. just enjoy them hun, as the others have said, I cant see them doing you any harm
