  1. Hello
    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    This type of urge is called pica in which persistent urge is there for substances with no nutritional value.So,at 14wks of pregnancy this type of urge may refer to iron or calcium deficiency.As there are not seen such indicative bad results on fetus but still one should avoid this as it may cause low birth weight or premature birth.You can have cooked brown rice, poha, soaked + peeled walnuts and almond at this period of pregnancy.

    Thanks
