    No ice cravings at all but anything sweet including ice cream, chocolate or candy. Not great for the teeth either lol. I'll switch with you though....my expanding butt and jiggly arms would thank you muchly :)

    Hi

    I've not had the craving myself, but when i was 17 and was a trainee hairdresser my manager/sytlist was pregnant and she had a massive craving for crunching on ice, she used to send me out of work to mcdonalds for a cup of ice so she could crunch on it!

    Sometimes ice crunching is a sign of iron deficiency anemia but it's also a fairly common pregnancy craving...

    You're lucky. I want to eat some ice (it's hot here), but I just had a couple silver fillings done and the teeth are SUPER sensitive to cold!

    Not me, no. This is called pica - when you crave stuff with no nutritional value. My sister had that exact craving and she was really low on iron.
