  • That sounds like a mineral deficiency. Pregnant women can experience strange things like this due to vitamin and mineral deficiency. Have you r doctor do some bloodwork, that way you will know for sure. If that's what it is they have treatment for it.

  • Do you crave things that taste like cardboard or dirt? If that happens, it's a problem
