  • I saw a post recently about someone who ate coffee grounds while pregnant. Be glad you're not that desperate!

  • not with coffee, but most of us have had our wierd cravings-- I craved Dial soap--- yes I wanted to eat it... I would take a shower just so I could lather up a washcloth with the soap... (never did take a bite though...lol)

    but you might want to switch to decaf, I drink a coffee every morning so I am certainly not judging, but too much caffeine can increase risk of miscarriage.

  • no prob- yeah my mom keeps telling me I should have a glass of red wine one night and relax... really it just doesn't sound good- and yes I usually like red wine. Most doctors say wine can be good for you because it relaxes you and increases blood flow... also my mom has been having a glass every night- and her nails which have been thin and cracking all her life are gorgeous... long and pretty -apparently something in the wine helps that. I have been eating alot of grapes and had the same effect. (grapes are my current crave... odd)

  • timelessglass- i never drank coffee before I was pregnant with my son when I ate the coffee grounds. It was just one of the strange PICA cravings I had..along with ice and dirt. Yup it was gross and like I said in that post thankfully nothing strange like that this time around....and I am now a coffee drinker lol
