When i was preg with my first baby who was born in 2006, i was craving clay and ate it almost all my 3rd trimester, with my second baby in 2008, it changed to chalk and i ate chalk half of my second trimester and throughout the 3rd, my husband was scared i was going to harm the baby so he told my Doctor who told me i have this thing call PICA... she gave me something to make sure i wasn't

I don't have any strange cravings except the usual...lately I'm so thirsty, I want to drink anything that is cold!...orange juice one minute, followed by fruit punch the next, maybe some decaf soda here and there, soymilk, lol.

What if you don't buy the chalk at all...like don't allow yourself to buy it, then you can't eat it.

My friend had this really bad and the ice chips were her best friend. She actually continue to have this for like a year after she had her baby.

I had a friend who had it. It is a mineral deficiency. She was advised to make sure she didn't cave into her cravings, and she chewed on ice chips all.day.long.

I used to sneak drinks all the time. DH finally noticed when the jar had lots of pickles but no juice and I had to confess. I think he turned almost as green as the pickles!

The 1st time through, I LOLed when the Dr asked me about craving dirt or anything else non-foody. You're on the right track with suspecting PICA, I think. No offense but chalk sounds so gross. Kinda like when I drank pickle juice during T1 and it grossed a few people out.
