  • No. It's water. Theres no possible way it would harm the baby. Also, they give you ice chips to chew on in the hospital. ;)

  • Nope, like lunamuse89 said, it's just water and they will give them to you to chew on at the hospital as's probably good for you actually, hydration and such. My mom craved ice chips her entire pregnancy with me. It's not unusual.
