Kinda odd question, but how are your iron levels?
I just ask because craving ice can be a symptom of low iron (no, I have no idea why!).

snow!

The OB told me last week to try up'ing my iron pills to 2/day instead of 1/day, and then I'm taking a prenatal on top of those. Hopefully that'll increase my levels a bit - they're at least holding steady with taking 1/day, but they're still low.

You know I have not really been craving anything but I have not turned anything down LOL!

And all of your cravings sound so yum--well except the snow. My iron levels are low so I am on iron pills.
