    I craved chalk & clean washing when I was pregnant! It was the texture of the chalk I craved, and the smell of washing. I used to wash one thing and put it in the tumble dryer then sit in the utility room to smell it drying!

    Completely bonkers.

    What does pregnancy do to us, both this time and last i have eaten toothpaste. Normally i sit on the sofa in the evening thinking of getting up and getting chocolate but when i'm preg all i can think of is eating toothpaste or brushing my teeth, i love everything about it the smell (mmmmm) and the taste and swallowing it and the grittyness of the whitening one. God now i want some. My teeth have never looked so good, but how bad is eating toothpaste for you......very!!! :rotfl:

    MMMM toothpaste, i am convinced its a mineral deficiency....

    Sounds like you have pica. Pica has been linked to iron deficiency.

    I had pica too from 27-30 weeks and was craving crunching ice cubes like crazy. I did some research and saw that it can be linked to anaemia. I got a letter from the hospital that week telling me I was anaemic. The craving completely disappeared after being on iron tablets for two weeks. You should always get non-food cravings checked out as they can be a sign you are lacking something.

    I am making an appointment with the doctor for thursday to discuss with him as this is becoming an obssession rather than just a phase. I also have a really odd looking mole which i want checked out so thought it would be a good idea to ask at the same time. :|

    That's interesting, I was diagnosed as being borderline anaemic at about 36 weeks.

    I used to satisfy my chalk craving by eating Rennies, they have a similar texture.

    LOL! aaah thanks guys i feel so much more "normal" now i no im not the only one with mud cravings or other random things! I no exactly what you mean about the washing powder to! I mean ive always loved the smell of daz but since ive been pregnant ive gone crazy for the stuff! I make sure the heating is on constantly in my house with some washing on the radiators so the house always smells of it!!! My partner thinks im going crazy coz he either walks in the room and im sitting there with a plant pot in my hands or washing wrapped round my head sniffing the hell out of it! Im kinda fond of toothpaste and rennie tablets to but nothing beats the crunch of mud! ooo also i bite the end off some masking tape earlier and ended up munching on that for a bit today as well! I'll tell you what im like a bloody goat at the mo! I'll eat anything!
