Who has pica?

What are you craving? I feel like a crazy person because I want to sniff nail polish remover and eat sponges all day!! I would never do that but the craving is making me crazy!! (My doctor knows about this just an FYI).

Re: Who has pica?

I don't this time, but I had it BAD with my last pregnancy. I wanted to eat Ajax cleaner (it's like Commet) dirt and sand. I would sit in the sand box at the park with DD1 and salivate. I also chewed ice constantly. Honestly, you could always just chew on a sponge. Just don't swallow LOL!

Yes except the sponge I'm craving is a magic eraser! Someone posted a pic of some dyed velour fabric and my mouth started watering. It's so weird!

I had PICA with 5 of my pregnancies. Finally after I quit being a vegetarian (after 21 years), I never got it again. My love was certain fabric softeners, lavender EO & ice. The scents I put on a cloth & would sniff. all. day. long. - the ice had to be certain shapes/textures. PICA is crazy!

Mine has been ice with all 3 of my pregnancies. Today I have had 88oz of ice from Sonic, and now I'm laying in bed wishing I had bought a 3rd cup to have on the nightstand overnight. It's crazy how badly I feel like I need ice!

I had it bad in my last pregnancy! I craved sonic ice, the smell of gasoline, the oil for my sewing machine, all kinds of crazy stuff. I had about 5 of the Yankee candle leather scented air fresheners in my car. I think I remember reading that it has something to do with being anemic? I was definitely anemic.

Yup, deficiency if some kind is usually the cause. Mine is anemia as well.

With my second pregnancy I had it bad. I craved lemon scented cleaners- Clorox wipes, dawn tabs. To the point that my body why physically start aching for it. I have to just sniff once to get rid of it. I literally felt as if I had no control.
