    LOL! Rather a soap box sniffer than a soapy nibbler! Oh dear I shouldn’t mock… but I may a little 😉

    Poor thing – not long to go now though!

    clean inside and out!!. its weird what being pregnant does to you. Does dove soap contain iron in its bubbles, cos they say you usually crave something (coal or whatever) that contains what your short of.
    Mine was more normal ice lollies in January.

    At least your insides will smell fresh, I have never licked a bar of soap ever! I do feel like I am missing out on something though.

    I am also 37 weeks pregnant and before I found out I had low iron levels I craved dove soap too but I stopped myself from eating it! I also loved the smell of bleach antibac and cif bathroom spray! Strange what pregnancy does!

      This was me during my first pregnancy, and now that I am 23 almost 24 weeks pregnant, the urge came back but I have no irish springs, but the dove cream body wash or whatever. I washed my hands with it then licked my hands and it was so satisfying. I’m now super tempted to go to the store to get my irish spring soap back, it’s not the same. Halp! Lol.

      I’m craving Irish spring too!! It’s so weird. I keep it inside the box and scratch and carve it to keep the smell intense. I’ve actually tried to eat it but it taste awful! Lol

    Im so grateful to have found this. I seriously thought i was the only weird 30 week crazy craving expecting mom out there eating bar soap. I have tried limiting the amounts of nibbles i do on my coastal soap everyday, but OMG the smell just makes my tastebuds crazy and i end up nibbling my bar soap! I wish i can stop now, but its too good to letgo! ?

      Ahhh bless you, fear not, it’s normal (ish!) but do see a doctor for a blood test as you could be anaemic xxx

    I’m currently 31 weeks pregnant with my first and the intense craving for the smell and taste of soap is driving me crazy ?
    At first is was the powdery washing powder I couldn’t get enough of then it slowly switched to a bar of soap that I walk around with everywhere. I also don’t have the best iron levels, a tiny bit on the anemic side the doctor reckons…

    I’m not pregnant and I eat dove soap. I just scraped a few shavings off the bar an ate it like I was chewing on a Minty.
    It started with the smell for me because I love Dove soap bar and the Dove deodorant which I’m obsessed with smelling. Then it started with the bubbles which I licked and now it’s the soap. Prior to that I used to sniff a lot of the Dove deodorant spray. Every time I sprayed under my arms I’d make sure my nose got a good whiff of it. I can’t help it
