  • That's funny! It may be pica, maybe not - your nose is more sensitive now, maybe you just never noticed it smelling good before?

  • A friend of mine wanted Dawn dish soap. Her doctor actually told her one TSP a day was fine. And the crazy thing is she did it! ITs crazy the things that we crave while we are pregnant.

  • Has your iron been checked lately? You can sometimes crave "non edible" things if your iron is low :)

  • I wanted to eat raw pork when I was pregnant with my youngest. Of course I didn't but raw breakfast sausage smelled/looked sooo good. Told my doc and sure enough I was really anemic. She had me use OTC iron first but it was just not bringing it up. Needed a stronger script. Finally close to the end I lost my desire to eat raw pork when my iron came up enough
