What is it called when a wsoman craves dirt and other miscellaneous i9tems while pregnant? I know it's a disorder but i need to know the correct termonology.
Hi Erica. I think it's called Pica, but I don't think it's a disorder that just afflicts pregnant women.
Ah, but I see that it is found particularly in pregnant women
, according to this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pica_(disorder)
When I was pregnant, I craved shrimp for the first, melon for the second, and golden vanila ice cream for the third.
