  • Yes, Ice is the only thing that got me through the morning/afternoon/evening sickness. I still get a little nausea at 25 weeks but Ice makes me feel better immediately! :)

  • Well I have heard of that but I can't say I craved that at all- even in labor! I craved reeses peanut butter cups. I ate a million...

  • i used to crave ice all the time, long before i was pregnant..was told i might have an iron-deficiency. idk if that's true..but i have been known to be anemic, also.
    just don't get into the habit of crunching it..bad for the teeth!

  • Are you taking iron? You probably should ask about it.

  • Never craved ice, but cold drinks were nice. I was pregnant during the summer 2006 in southern California.. the year they reached record highs. We didn't have an actual AC unit until my eighth month.
