6 months pregnant, craving for Clay
Hi, I am 6 months pregnant & have developed this habit of eating grey clay since past couple of months, the amount of clay I am eating is very high & I cannot avoid it as I get tremors and serious urge of eating it,  also I feel stressed. Also I have recently been diagnosed with Pregnancy Induced Asthma. For which I am taking Foracort inhaler. Is it going to harm me or my baby? Also what could be the reason for this?
