30wks and I'm starting to enjoy using bleach to clean up. It smells great! And my tooth paste tastes amazing. Anyone else?

Pica. Watch out you don't start eating laundry detergent or something!

Shoe polish and fire lighters, separately of course.

Pica. Tell your midwife about it. You may have a nutritional deficiency

Pica is the desire to eat non food items.

Just liking the smell is not pica...

Sorry-meant pica is actually eating non food, came out wrong!

Oh yes! My friend used to eat newspaper and she had something wrong with her liver

OP - I've always loved the smell of bleach (and Dettol), not just since becoming pregnant. My bathmats and slippers are full of bleach stains, but I love it and everything smells so clean and germ free blush
My latest thing is the smell of the green toilet duck (pine scent). I can't get enough of the stuff and go around squirting it in all plug holes including the kitchen sink.
