Craving Chemicals like Nail Polish Remover

Is craving chemicals like nail polish remover normal?

It is taking everything for me not to run over and chug the entire bottle. haha
My husband even took the extra step and hide the bottles from me. Like I would ever do anything to hurt my unborn child, sheesh. lol
