    anyone having weird cravings? as in the "pica" type cravings? I've read about people craving mud, dust, chalk, washing detergent, cement etc and thought they were crazy :wacko: but now I'm having really strong cravings for ice, i can just sit and crunch it all up and eat as many ice cubes as i can get :wacko: I've looked it up and apparently this is classed as a pica craving too, since it has no nutritional benefit, and can signify a iron or zinc deficiancy... i feel fine otherwise though, should i let my midwife/gp know?

    Might be an idea if you're worried. But sure its nothing too serious. :)
