to ice
This morning I sat on the bus for 20 mins just to buy ice from a particular mcdonalds, then I had to wait 15mins for the bus back. Somebody please tell me this is normal behaviour

well I asked for a large sprite, but they have one of those do it yourself machines so just filled my cup up with ice.

No, it's not. Are you pregnant?

sweetmonkey Fri 17-Jun-05 14:27:58

I hope not, it would be a very overcooked twin of ds's if I was!

I was sure someone was going to admit to the same thing

I had to go to that particular mcdonalds because the other ones in town fill your cup up themselves and have big rectangular ice, not little square ice.

I am really bad with Ice . I make my own ice and keep it in a carrier bag in the freezer. I refill every morning and night and feel myself getting panicky in case i run out. then I fill the cup up so i get about three mouthfuls of juice and the rest ice

I am also pleased it's not just me but then I am 10 wks pregnant and think its not too bad a craving really!

I was addicted to ice when I was pregnant ... I still have the odd surreptitious crunch now.

I do that too! I have 3 ice cube trays and fill them up constantly. I fill a cup with ice, then a tiny bit of water and just sit and crunch on ice cubes! but I'm not pg

It is actually an addiction, I spent nearly an hour this morning gettting my one cup of ice.

Just curious did you have a boy or girl my mum said cold things normally mean a boy!

Actually we couldn't care less if its a boy or a girl so long as it isn't frozen!

beansmum Fri 17-Jun-05 15:04:08

I craved ice even more when I was pg, and had a boy

WigWamBam Fri 17-Jun-05 15:04:58

Nope, mine was a girl.

I can think of worse addictions. Caouln't you just buy ane Ice crusher or belnd some to get the smaller sized cubes.

I have given this a lot of thought as i may purchase one next week.

I have a food processor which blends ice pretty well, but it's not the same. This mcdonalds has just the right size and shape of cube, and they're not too crunchy iykwim

You are terrible

You are an expert on texture of icecubes PMSL

beansmum Fri 17-Jun-05 15:11:19

it's like they haven't been frozen for too long, they're not too hard and they're in tiny little square cubes. mmmmmmmmmmm

ok, I am a freak

I had an ice thing when I was pg, to the point that when I was in labour and MW said that they didnt have any left on the ward I said something along the lines of 'well go f*cking get some from another f*cking ward then'
