Anyone Chew On Inedible Things?

I have strong urges to bite on cardboard, or plastic.... Anyone have to do the same while pregnant?

  • Your body could be lacking something you would get from chewing those things. Pica isnt synanomous with pregnancy and craving ice means your body is low in iron. Never ignore urges or cravings. They are there to tell you your body needs something.

  • don't know about chewing but injesting weird things while pregnant, like dirt, is called Pica. talk to your doctor.

  • I don't ingest things, it''s like I need something rough on my tongue. I know it sounds odd.
