Eating ice weeks before due date..... Lock Rss

Hi all

Ok my question is did anyone that was near the end of their pregnancy or through their pregnancy start eating ice all the time???? or any other funny things that they wouldn't normally eat??

I never acted on it but in my third trimester I totally wanted to eat washing powder, dish washing tablets, bleach and cleaning products. Doing the washing was torture, lol!
oh ok.....

I have done with my last 2 pregnancies. get your iron levels checked or have something like floradix as eating ice can happen when you are low in iron and it may also be that you could be a bit dehydrated.
YES! when i was pregnant with both my girls, i couldn't get enough ice. Hubby used to joke that it didn't freeze fast enough! With my boy tho i thought it tasted funny.,
My mum did this when she was pregnant with me, and still does 40 years later! She just eats them straight out of the tray. As OC said, it's worth getting your iron levels checked if this is your craving.




funny enough I never really use to eat ice at all but since falling preg with my DS and being in my last trimester I have been eating a shit load of ice and that's the only thing that my body wants all the time
