Anyone else addicted to munching on ice? I am constantly chewing on it. I can't help it- it's just soo good!
Yes, you just reminded me that one thing I have been buying that I don't normally have are slurpees. LOVE the cold icee yum!
Not ice, but ice cream. I was having a few scoops every night until I started having tummy problems. So I tried to cut back on it. Now it's a few scoops two or three times a week
YUM! Munching ice is all I do once I get home from work. I Am waiting to break a tooth LOL.
Not ice, but water! I can drink huge full cups all day long. It tastes SO good right now!
I am liking popisicles right now!!
I usually don't have ice in my water, but I have been putting ice in and munching on it when the water is all gone. Funny how I never noticed tho, until you said something!! hahaha
Sometimes the desire to eat a lot of ice in pregnancy can indicate low iron. Just an FYI. But yeah, I have been enjoying ice more lately! (And I am low in iron, and taking a liquid iron supplement). I am going to go today to get some ice from Sonic... they sell it by the bag, and it's that yummy airy ice like they have at hospitals! I am going to stock my freezer with it, lol! My friend TC calls that kind of ice crack ice, because you can't seem to get enough of it. Lol!
Edit: It has a name! Read here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pagophagia
Oh- I know- the ice you get at the hospital- yum...I remember when I had Ollie, I had like, multiple cups full every day I stayed there...and then I filled up my giant hospital thermos to take home. Love that ice- it's almost chewy and soft...mmmmmm....
Just read the article...very interesting. It's very possible I am low in iron...I have had issues with that in the past. Even more interesting "The chewing of ice has been linked to being a common cause of frequent headaches."
Hmmm....maybe that's where my increase in headaches has come from!
Thanks for the info!
With both my other kids I craved it so so bad! I have low iron too (have to take extra supplement) so I wonder if that is why? I crave water too, and it has to be very cold. That's all I drink now and a lot of it!
