Hey Auggie Moms,
Happy Week 31! Has anyone had weird cravings as of late? I dont mean pickles and ice cream, I mean dirt, chalk, paint, etc. In the last 2 weeks, I've been craving chalk...like the sticks of white chalk used back in the day by your favorite teacher.
Of course, I have NOT been indulging in this craving (baby's safety comes 1st!), but as most of you know, when you have a craving it makes thinking about anything else in your day to day quite difficult. I did a little internet investigating and it seems Im suffering from a common pregnancy "ailment" known as Pica. What I cant find is a way to deal with it and/or combat it in a healthy way. Although Im already taking iron supplements, I plan to tell my doctor about this weirdness at our next appointment.
Any suggestions from my Preggo Sisters on what I can do to end this and mentally put chalk back where it belongs i.e. in the classroom and not in my kitchen!
