  • Yes! I craved blue cheese (which i hate) and onions! However, if you start to crave things that are not normally edible (such as dirt, paint, laundry soap, lots of ice, etc) then you may be developing a condition called Pica and you need to tell your doc as this is a sign of a vitamin deficiency. Normal food cravings are just that tho.. normal. Where do you think all the jokes about pickles and ice cream when pregnant come from? :)
