Ever craved for something crazy like soil, soap or laundry detergent? During pregnancy all the senes of a women becomes more active and aggressive. You can even smell the butter and grease on the stove from the second floor. Or even the smell of fried onions or garlic that trigger the morning sickness. Or even the smell of cut grass in the early morn. Women’s senses become like a walking radar. When I was expecting my second baby girl. I was craving for ice cubes as snacks to be taken with my Anmum pregnancy milk. At first I did not noticed this. But after I turned into my second trimester and throughout my third trimester I constantly craved for ice cubes morning, mid-morning tea, lunch and supper. Owh boy, do I remember taking my cold cuppa chocolate drink mix with Anmum milk and up to six to eight cubes of ice. I remember that I constantly on ice till my mouth was freezing cold and my tongue was numb from the coldness.
I could not remember a day without ice cubes in my drink. But check-ups and ultrasounds went well and I though it was just one of those crazy pregnancy cravings.
Did you know that it is common for pregnancy women to chew or crunch on ice cubes. It soothes the mouth on a hot day. But is not good for your teeth though. But did you know that it could be a way of your body to communicate to you? Craving for non-food such as ice cubes, soil, laundry detergent etc can be a sign of iron deficency or lacking of certain nutritions in the body that both mother and baby needs.
But for working suppa moms and also working at home moms are not taking enough nutrition and essential vitamins and minerals in form of fluids and healthy food intake such as fresh vegetables, fresh fruits and also clean and healthy mineral water (not tap water) with busy schedules, non-stop meetings and playing tag with kids to finish homework, prepare meals and supper, wash and clean up. Phew~ all mommies are suppa moms when it comes to multitasking. Huhu
