Dear Natalie
If you eat ice that is made with clean safe water, then there should be no problem of contamination and it should not harm your baby. In some cases women experience strange cravings during pregnancy which may be due to hormonal changes. Luckily for you, eating ice will not make you gain excess weight. Do make sure that you eat a well balanced diet that provides all the nutrients you and baby need for good health. When you have your next checkup please mention that you are eating ice to the dr who is managing your pregnancy. He/she may check to see if you have any deficiencies.
Enjoy your pregnancy
