Anyone craving milk? — The Bump

Anyone craving milk?

Has anyone been craving milk at all? Normally I am not a huge milk drinker but do my best to have a least one glass a day. However today I was craving a glass at dinner and am now on my 5th one! This seems crazy! At least its milk and not ice cream, right? Just curious if anyone else has experienced this.

Re: Anyone craving milk?

  • I've always loved milk, but since I've been pregnant I drink a lot more.  I probably drink a gallon in 2 - 2.5 days on my own.  Not including the milk in my cereal. lol.  But be careful with how much milk you drink - while the calcium is great for you and baby, my Doc let me know that too much calcium blocks the absorption of Iron, which is equally important. It's a big deal in my pregnancy, because I was anemic pre-pregnancy. I'm not sure it's such a big deal in women who aren't anemic, but I would still watch it, just to be safe! :)

  • Milk was my first craving. The cravings went away for a while, but they come back every once in a while- tonight i had 2 glasses for a snack after dinner.

  • ME!  It was ice cream for awhile, so I'm okay with the milk thing now.  I'm going through about 1/2 gallon a day, NO LIE!  LOL.  I guess I could have worse cravings.  Stick out tongue

    It's just about my only craving as well.

    If you drink a whole bunch of it and belch in someone's face, it will really stink.

    Peeeyoou!!!!

  • I craved dairy like crazy when I was pregnant with my son, but I usually preferred it in chocolate milk/cheese/yogurt form (I hate plain milk). But I went through a lot of dairy- I almost felt in pain at the end of the day if I hadn't had enough. It was odd.

  • Yep, me too! If I have 2 glasses of milk a year, I'm doing pretty good. Never really liked it much but now I'm drinking 1-2 gallons a week! Pregnancy is so crazy!

  • I find it interesting that every person who responded that they craved dairy (whose baby's sex is mentioned in a ticker or in their post itself) had a boy with that pregnancy. Any of you crave milk when pregnant with girls?

  • I've always loooooved milk, so maybe I'm not good to compare with. But yes, I am drinking alot more than usual. I think it has to do with that I"m just thirstier, and instead of reaching for something full of sugar like juice or soda, I'm trying to make sure I get plenty of protien and vitamins.  I do crave milk products more than usual though, especially ice cream, yummo!

  • Can't stop drinking milk! But it's often the chocolate or strawberry variety. And I normally HATE strawberry milk!

  • Meeee! I have been obsessed with milk and we're having a little girl. (: Seriously, I drink 2 gallons a week at least by myself.
  • Yes! I can't seem to get enough milk lately, I have to buy gallons of milk 2-3 times a week. My prenatal vitamins do not have calcium so I'm glad I'm getting it from somewhere :-)
