  • You might be lacking in Iron or some nutrient. That is sometimes a sign. Sometimes it's nothing. I would ask my doc if I were you.

  • I craved ice all through my pregnancy like crazy. I was always walking around with a cup of ice or a snowball. The hospital I delivered at actually had the ice chips just like sonic which was a heaven sent because I was in there 4 days until I actually had her.lol

  • It's normal, I craved it too with my last pregnancy, not with the first two though. My iron count was good so I don't know why I craved it and my doctor wasn't concerned. I loved the hospital's ice too. A week or 2 after my baby was born I didn't want ice anymore.

  • I did too!! Every morning on my way to work I would buy a large cup of ice. I HAD to have it! They had perfect small ice cubes. I don't know why, it was just so great!!!

  • I too crave Ice. Everything so far looks good. My fiance said that he read it some where that if you crave ice it's either a sign of lacking nutrients or sexual frustrations. I don't know what it is but I'm eating a 20 pound bag of ice a week. My doctor just laughs at me and tells me that it's normal. To give it more nutrients, I will sometimes freeze juice instead of water. That's a nice little treat at like 2 in the morning.
