After my m/c I started craving chocolate and sugar really bad (while I was preg. I couldn't even look at chocolate without getting nauseous). I'm 4 wks past m/c and still crave the sugar. Regarding the craving of non-food items, there is a term for it, called "pica" that you should research. From what I've read, it happens alot, and as long as you don't indulge in the non-food item, you should be fine.

I am 8 months pregnant and have the rubbing alchohol smell craving. Elyse, How long before the craving went away?

G, i may be wrong but i have since found out you are probably low in somthing either iron or another vitamin, when you have these cravings. i was low in iron both times after the births with the iron tablets it soon goes away straight away. Your body is just asking for what it needs it so mad is'nt it. I've been given iron tablets again and it's gone.
