  • Low iron usually. They tell you if you crave it to take iron supplements. Its kinda funny they ask at visits are you craving ice, dirt or pain chips? I'm like WTF?! no. haha

  • I have never been a big ice eater. I hate it. But I loved eating ice & popsicles when I was pregnant. I loved ice from Sonic! Now that I'm not preggo, I've gone back to not eating ice.

  • oooh boy i did. all i wanted was a big glass of ice water. more ice than water. dont know why. maybe the 98 degree weather we had that summer of 2005 had something to do with it. lol.
