In brief: Many people have it.

Many pregnant women have this --quite common actually.
We don't truly understand why, but possibly because of the rapid hormonal changes associated with pregnancy. Some become somewhat anemic and thus can crave/chew ice etc... So, ask around...I am sure there are many women around your neighborhood.... Good luck on your pregnacy, if you are...
