I've read it can be a sign of anemia if you crave it. Other than that I don't think there's any other issues.

I used to eat cups of ice a day cause i craved it so much. Later i was told that i was craving it because i was lacking iron. My blood work came back anemic and now I have to take iron pills everyday till he's born so that I won't need a blood transfusion after labor /:

When you drink or eat something cold before you deliver, your baby's skin will be dry. His/her skin will be peeling off & sometimes grow stuff on their face.  It's better to stay off of cold drinks/foods. Drink a lot of warm water

Eating ice or anything c old before you deliver will not make your babies s kin flake off. That's ridiculous.

My sister craved it with all 5 children and all of them are perfect. I have read that it could mean your lacking in iron. I cant stand warm drinks at the moment the make me throw up and have done with my other two pregnancies and not one of them had skin flaking off or stuff growing on their face. How random :0/

There is nothing wrong with eating ice while pregnant. When you are in labor and cant eat or drink anything they will give you ice. Did it with my first child and her skin wasnt "flakey" or "dry" thats a bunch of BS.
