Eating Ice? - Page 2

Agreeing with others-you should get your iron levels checked to make sure you're not anemic.

I'm not anemic, but I LOVE ice. I always have though, not just during this pregnancy. I especially love the crushed pellet type of ice. They have this at Big Boys, and I am totally craving it now.

I second the checking iron. It *probably* isn't the case but there is still a chance it's iron.

Glad to see I'm not the only one! lol. I thought I was going to be weird. Looks like it's pretty normal.

I was never a big ice fan until I got pregnant. I eat a lot of ice now. My iron levels were checked in early pregnancy and they were fine. Not sure how muy iron levels are now....

yes I have it down to a science
I'm the same way! I call myself an ice connoisseur because I know the best places in our city to get ice, even the best gas station bagged ice. It's sad.

Even though I'm not a soda drinker, my favorite ice is in the bottom of a cup of a friends or my DH's coke. Mmmmmm. Although my new favorite (and much healthier) addiction has been the ice that's been soaking in my red rasberry leaf tea. Good stuff!

Oh, and my iron levels have always been fine - I just LOVE ice!
