Developign Allergies

Has anyone ever heard of developing allergires during pregnancy? I used to be able to drink milk, not that I ever did, I think it's gross. But now, if I try to drink milk, or have hot chocolate, or anything like that it makes my tummy hurt, anybody ever heard of this?

It might not be an allergy, but rather lactose intollerance. This condition can be magnified during pregnancy. I would talk to your doctor, but it is essential that you get your recommended allowance of calcium. Early in my pregnancy I was having a similar problem, and the doctor suggested avoiding milk products and getting my calcium through other sources (soy milk, calcium supplements, etc...). Now, I am 25 weeks pregnant and can't seem to get enough of the stuff.....I HATED milk before I got pregnant....wouldn't even drink the leftovers from my I find myself drinking 2-3 gla__ses a day. Best of luck to you.

Beth - I also used to be able to drink milk pre-pregnancy. It was not that I drank everyday or I liked it. I used it for brkfst cereals, but now, I am 14 weeks along, and If I drink milk I throw up until the last drop of it comes out. I have stopped milk completely. But what I am surprised about it, I can still have yoghurt, cheese, b___ter etc., without any problems. So I catch up on yoghurt. How many weeks along are you guys?

I'll be 26 weeks on thursday, I can eat yogurt and ice cream (mint choco chip is the best) and other milk products but not milk, I still get my calcium though, I drink OJ with calcium for people that don't drink milk, and since OJ is the only thing that I crave, my baby gets this from it's daddy, I'm still getting all I need I just was wondering if anybody else had developed anything like this while pregnant.
