I have been very lucky as the only craving I have had really is ice. I have had a slush puppie every day in work while being pregnant.

how exciting - ive always wanted a really werid craving!
Had ice in my last preg but nothing this time around so far... apart from food in general! (had a slight ice craving in the first few weeks but think it helped the nausea) _________________

Craving non food items is called pica, and its usually because your body is missing some base mineral that it needs. Sounds like maybe you need some calcium? Cheese or milk might help.
Some women crave coal - bit messy i should imagine lol.
