omg, i crave cleaning products so bad! I know its normal, but its driving me INSANE!!! I seriously scrub the bathroom and kitchen 3 times a day just so i can smell it and temporarily satisfy my craving. Comet and soft scrub are my favorite. My last blood test showed im wayyy low in iron and i cant take iron pills so i know that is what is causing it.

Haha yeah my sister had those cravings too. She carried around this little baggy with comet in it! lol! It looked like she was smelling blue drugs :P

I havnt resorted to carrying it around yet, but im seriously considering it. I was using a clorox wipe on the high chair and i had to stop and sniff it for like 2 minutes until Ryan took it away.

From some things I've read this could be something called Pica...I don't know how serious it is but I think it shouldn't effect you too much as long as you don't have the urge to eat these things.


newbaby2009 - December 18

Yea, its called pica. Pica is the urge to consume non food items. So yes, the urge to eat them is there. I know someone who eats cigarette ashes everyday.

I am the same way with laundry detergent. I think I am going to break our washer if I keep doing laundry. I am always finding new excuses. Hubby says stop. I can't I can't! Ha ha ha. Although like you my iron is a tad low.

hmm my iron was low too and i kept cleaning my bathroom and kitchen with the lysol wipes. but i was able to take iron tablets. why can't you take then, newbaby?


newbaby2009 - December 20

I cant take pills of any kind, even prenatals. They make me sick.


Teddyfinch - December 20

have you tried taking them with food? dumb question as i'm sure you have, but for the longest time, i kept forgetting to and couldn't figure out why it made me sick.


newbaby2009 - December 21

yea, ive tried everything. I dont get just nauseous sick, if i even try to swallow a pill of any kind i throw up for 10 or 15 minutes afterwards.

Bleagh, bleach? Man! I Can't even stand the smell so I don't know how you do it lol. Hey, I couldn't take those either, but have you tried flinstones vitamins with iron? my dr said I could take those cause I can't take prenatals


newbaby2009 - December 21

Yep, tried flintstones too. Couldnt stand em either. Im really sensitive about what goes into my mouth for whatever reason.
