I have been chewing ice like a mad woman lately. I've lost my appetite and just want to crunch on ice. I get plenty of water (I refill my 32 ounce cup at minimum 8-10 times a day) but I can't seem to get enough ice.

I read this could be a sign of low iron. Anyone having issues with this?

The only thing I know is that it could indicate anemia, or also other deficiencies.

I have the same thing. I asked my doc and he said it's a little late in the game for anemia considering all my blood work tests have been normal.

He told me to keep going.

I'm the same way. I had them check my iron and it was normal. Just one of those cravings!

Lurking from Oct 2014 -

I was very anemic at the end of my last pregnancy. I could eat about 3 big bags of ice that you would get from the store, in ONE day. Thats all I wanted, and all I really ate in the hospital. My levels were so low that 4 more numbers would have gotten me a blood transfusion. REALLY watch how much you are ingesting, and let your OB/midwife know so they can get you on an iron supplement STAT!!

I think it's a normal pregnancy craving and you just need to watch the amount you're consuming. I always crave ice at the end and have never been anemic.

Even if you were anemic theres no quick fix for it anyway. Did you have a blood test to check for it? Usually they do one. I'm uber anemic and my hemoglobin is bottomed out so Im on iron 3 times a day, have been for a couple weeks and its still doing nothing. My dr says it takes about a month to start making a difference

I know a couple preggo women who have had crazy ice cravings. My SIL was the worst lol. When she was in labor that was 50% of her husbands job...making sure her ice bucket was filled at all times! She wasnt anemic. Just a crazy pregnancy craving....theres so many of them lol!
