Lately I have been eating ice, I even make small ice cubes just so I can eat them. I take iron tablets everyday, cause I am anemic. I've heard craving ice is caused from a lack of iron. Is that true? I also craved ice with my daughter, but not for the last couple weeks of my pregnancy. Lol there was a snow cone stand up the road, and I would go there everyday just to get plain shaved ice with no syrup.
I know what you mean with my first 2 pregnancies I would eat a 32oz cup of crushed ice like it was nothing, I wanted it all the time. I dont know about the iron thing though, im 21 weeks pregnant this time and have not had any ice cravings, just french toast, ice would be alot better though .
Noodleandshorty, my daughters name is mackenzie except its spelled mckinzey!
Reading this post is making me want ice again, especially reading the word crushed ice. Lol. I don't have any other cravings as strongly as I do for ice. At least i'm not craving dirt or soap though... Ehhk
I've read that craving ice can mean you have an iron deficiency, but not always. Ice is considered a non food item, but it's not a problem. What sucks is if you crave dirt, laundry soap, or cigarette butts.
