@Erica Moya,
Hi Erica. I think it's called Pica, but I don't think it's a disorder that just afflicts pregnant women.

@Joeblow,
Ah, but I see that it is found particularly in pregnant women, according to this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pica_(disorder)

@Joeblow,
To clarify:
Quote:
Pica is seen in all ages, particularly in pregnant women, small children, and those with developmental disabilities.

When I was pregnant, I craved shrimp for the first, melon for the second, and golden vanila ice cream for the third.
