i have heard that if you really crave chewing ice that you are lacking in iron i believe this to be true, as it has happened to me before. now it is happening again.
what i am wondering is: if anyone else chews ice,does it taste like your gums are bleeding; but they arent? very wierd and i wonder what it means.

I chewed a lot of ice at the end of my first pregnancy, so I guess it makes sense that it would be a lack of iron. I never had the bleeding gums feeling that I can recall though.

I ate ice like it was going out of style during my second pregnancy. My older son thought it was a new food group lol. And yes i did have an iron defiency and that is why i chewed it like that.

ID get up in the middle of the night and chew 3 or 4 cubes.. it drove my huband up the wall... MY last pregnacy I ended up I cracked one of my tooths... as for bleeding gums.. NEVER experinced it.. to chew the ice was like chewing really really cold cold water..
