my friend recently had a craving for wet flannels. very strange indeed but it's normal for a pregnant woman! i've had none of these sorts of cravings and i feel like i'm missing out lol.

i almost ate a massive dollop of vasaline a few months ago before my husband stopped me, I knew it would be horrible but i really wanted to put it in my mouth!
I'm sure i read somewhere that a pregnant woman got arrested because she had an overwhelming urge to drive erratically but i might have imagined it.
32 weeks today!

Lol. Just had to reply to this post
When I was pregnant with my daughter I craved dirt (yuk!)
I used to buy new potatoes, not to boil, but to lick and smell the dirt lol.
I also loved the smell of building sites and the smell of rubble and in our local high street some builders were doing some work on a shop. They used to let me stand in the door way of the shop just so I could have a sniff lol

Craving non food substances is called Pica. It's recommended you get it checked out.

i was just going to say the same as shoyu it can be dangerous because as we all know a craving is something u cant control and some people have been known to do things like drink petrol and eat chalk etc because of this pica xxx

is it still pica if i dont want to eat it i just want to suck it and bite it but not actually chew and swallow?

In the early stages I wanted to suck really cold wet flannels
In the last week or so I have wanted to spray the kitchen cleaner in my mouth. Obviously I haven't but the urge is there.
I have told hubby that he has to do the cleaning now so that I don't smell it and get the urge.

I don't think its odd at all!I have this "craving" ALL the time and not just in pregnancy infact when I was a kid I was in halfords and actually picked up a car cleaning sponge and licked it!I love it so much!haha Yes I'm weird and hubby thinks I'm insane but I don't care. This last week I have craved them more and even brought myself a new sponge in ASDA yesterday!x

With my first I had a craving for the smell of dust between floorboards or new carpet towards the end, this time round I really crave the smell of fumes like petrol fumes. I went to a Machine Mart with my OH yesterday, and the smell in there was like heaven!!! x

I was chatting to a friend the other day who said she used to crave chewing rubber bands with both her pregnancys!
