Wierd craving during pregnancy

I am about 36 weeks pregnant and have this weird problem. I crave for chalky things like tums/Cal Flour etc..
I have around 10 tums every day. My doctor says it is ok but I dont feel it is ok. Also since I am taking Calc Flour and Mag Phos , i sometimes take more that I should because I just crave for it. Is this some kind of disease. Is there anything that I could safely eat.
I never had this problem with my first baby. Can someone please help me. I dont want to eat that many tablets/tums.

Stomach, desires, lime, slate pencils, earth, chalk, clay, etc. : alum., calc., cic., ferr., nat-m., nit-ac., nux-v.

This is from Kent. Other repertories may have some more additions.

There is one more rubric.

Stomach, desires, strange things, during pregnancy : chel., lyss., mag-c.

Craving Chalk during pregnency is no doubt a symptom. But, to choose a medicine, you must have atleast three prominent symptoms. Then only, you can make a remedy choice.

The way you feel,right now, has also to be taken into consideration.

Better consult an experienced homeopath, rather than trying a self medication.

Ask your doctor to test your iron level. Iron deficiency can sometimes cause chalk and other non-food cravings. Also try some iron-rich foods (spinach, Cream of Wheat, beans, etc.) and see if that helps ease the craving.
