I am not a big milk drinker, however, lately I have been craving it with everything. I was told that I should have 1500mg per day either in supplement or in foods. I was also told that Lovenox depletes the body of more calcium. So I started taking calcium supplements early on. My dr. always asks if I am taking my calcium so I guess it is important. Now I have also heard that you don't want too much calcium because of stones. So now should I cut back on my supplement or cut down on drinking the milk? I will probably ask the dr. when I see him next week, just to be sure but curious what you are all doing?
Thank you Mistyx5 for my siggy.
I'm not a milk drinker and my dr. hasn't said anything to me about it. But I do eat yogurt and eat chesse and drink some milk on weekend. There are a lot of fruits and vegetables that also have calcium, so I made it up that way.
fruits, veggies, cheese, and I try to drink at least 16 oz of milk per day. I used to LOVE milk, but with this pg I'm just not craving it like usual. One Borden's Fat Free Cheese slice has 60% RDV of calcium. My prenatals have 23%. I think I'm getting 100% overall at the very least.
Milk feels so heavy in my stomach that I cant drink alot, but I did just get some sugar free chocolate syrup from my hubby so Im sure Ill be enjoying my milk intake more! I love cheeses, and yogurts to!!
Thanks Nami for my beautiful siggy!
