    I only seem to be craving chocolate which I guess is not particularly unusual. I'm not a big fan of chocolate normally so it's a bit weird for me I guess.

    I have eaten too much chocolate and its starting to leave a bad taste in my mouth so I'm hoping I'll get a craving for apples or something instead.

    Sucking water from sponges is rather off the wall lol

    I craved ice & things like slush puppies etc, can be a sign of low iron, don't know about the sponge though but think sponge is quite common so must be a reason x

    I had a thing for slush puppies in the summer and weirdly was thinking of one yest...and now now lol. But not really had cravings tbh.

    The sponge one is actually a classic. Have read about it on here in the past. You're not alone lol. X

    I had a thing for straws at the start. Only the ones of little juice cartoons - ribena has the best ones. For ages I actually couldnt bear to drink out of a glass - had straws in my handbags.

    Usually i just carried juice cartoons everywhere, and would then sit and chew the straw for like the next 3 hours. The long ones you get bars didnt tast the same.

    I had to go cold turkey when we went to the states though - cos the straws out there didnt taste the same! :(

    Wow, never heard of straw cravings before, that's great! I've heard a lot of people say they crave ice & ice lollies. My craving has definitely been milk, I drink tons of it, my OH says our baby is going to have super hard bones!

    My MW said she'd class it as Pica - craving a non food item - the most common one is apparently coal. Although she'd had someone who couldnt stop picking the putty off her windows and eating that! :sick:

    Yeah, I didn't want to swallow the straws, just chew them. And I was very fussy about which straws. Needed to be ribena, or capri suns. Lol
