My wife wants to eat clay

Has anyone experienced a pregnant woman wanting to eat clay before? I know it is full of minerals, iron especially, still kinda odd though.

 :D Actually, that's quite common... she really shouldn't though, could be harmful bacteria in the clay. My advice is, buy some vitamins/minerals/iron supplement pills and eat them instead. That could rid her of her "strange" urge to eat clay.

Yes, that is very common, and I first found out about it while I was in Afghanistan. The women there would literally eat dirt.
