Pregnancy comes with different cravings which could termed odd just as in the case of a woman who is 8 months pregnant with her second child who has gotten so addicted to eating all types of soap ranging from liquid to bars.

26-year-old Jess Gayford who hails from Bristol in the United Kingdom is suffering from a rare medical condition known as Pica.

Pica affects mainly children and pregnant women. It causes people to eat non-food items such as sand, soap or paint.

She eats soaps often and is said to consume about two bottles every week which has posed a cause for concern for her 31-year-old partner Lee Trimby.

The couple already have a 5-year-old son named Alfie, reported World Wide Weird News.

Gayford said that the addiction all started on a fateful day when she licked a bar of Dove soap which tasted so goon and made her go for a second bar.

She said, “It came out of nowhere. I wanted to lick a bar of Dove soap. I went to buy a bar and started licking it. It sounds disgusting but it’s really nice.

“In my first pregnancy I wanted to eat baked beans and cheese but nothing weird.”

Although doctors are of the opinion that her unborn child would not be affected by the woman’s rare medical condition.
