  • If you have the want to eat ice constantly it means you are low on iron. And no its not bad as long as you are still consuming nutritional foods and you and baby are gaining weight

  • Just as Leksismommy said, eating Ice constantly could be Anemia, you may want to let your doctor know

  • I would still let your doctor know. It could be another vitamin deficiency. But like the other ladies said as long as you eat other foods the health of your baby should be fine.

  • Should be fine as long as you get all your nutrients as well.

  • It isn't bad as long as you are eating food too. Its just giving you plenty of water. The only thing I would say though is that CHEWING on ice is really bad for your teeth. It puts cracks in them and makes them weak. So I always try to suck on ice, not chew.

  • a friend of mine did the same thing when she was pregnant with her son and she didnt have any anemia or anything like that...but you still have to eat other stuff so that the baby can grow and be healthy not just ice and while it is bad for your teeth if you get small ice like at restaurants its not that bad for your teeth
