Milk Is Making Me Sick

Yeah so everytime I drink milk, beside just the little bit in cereal, I star feeling really nauseas, and the other night I actually puked. I really want to know why that is happening, cuz I love milk, but it seems like maybe the baby don`t like it or something. Does anyone maybe know why this is?

lady26 - 2839 days ago Rating: 5 (1 votes) That happens to me too I used to love milk and grew up drink it everyday but recently, since becoming pregnant I realize somedays I am just turn off by it, it makes me gag but on other days I'm fine and can drink it without problem. It does taste better with cereal though, I think it's the pregnancy hormones. I read somewhere where other pregnant women are having the same problem too.

nich-vegas-mommy2be - 2839 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) I couldn't stand any milk until about 17 weeks, then I could tolerate it with cereal, and I can drink some chocolate milk now. Plain white milk still makes me throw up (24 weeks now). Like the other ladies say, I think it's something to do with hormones. Hopefully it will pass or as time goes by you can tolerate it a bit more.

karenc - 2839 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) I know several women who became lactose intolerant during pregnancy or, or course, as the ladies below have suggested it could be the hormones. the good news is that it won't last forever!

Baby3OnWay - 2839 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) HORMONES!! haha I couldn't eat broccoli with my first and I couldn't have milk with all three... this being my third, so i actually take a calcium suppliment now. Its just something that happens I guess. best of Luck!

brandi j. - 2839 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) You can thank those wonderful pregnancy hormones for this! You may just have to give up milk until the baby is born. If you aren't getting your source of calcium from other foods, you will want to talk to your doc about taking a calcium supplement for the time, or try to get it through other foods! My friend's mom could not drink OJ when she was preg. b/c it did the same thing to her.

Melanie07 - 2839 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) It is part of pregnancy. I could not eat fried chicken with any of my pregnancies. Just the smell would make me nauseous. It should go away after the baby is born. You can get your calcium in other foods. You can try a different type of milk. You can also eat yogurt or cheese. there are a lot of different calcium and vitamin D rich foods.

julie80 - 2840 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) i dont like milk but have made sure i started drinking it once i found out i was pregnant. After about a month or so everytime i had a cup i would get sick. I tired drinking a cup of it at all different times of the day thinking maybe that would help, but it didnt i would still get sick. since i hit the 12 week mark tho that has seemed to stop. So maybe it will pass for you to maybe you should just try to go a day or two without it and see what happens.

Mommyof2boys - 2840 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) I use to eat all sorts of things and then when I was pregnant I started to hate the things I once loved eating, its normal and usualy passes after the baby is born but sometimes you hold on to it.

niki - 2840 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) I would say thats normal enough - when i smelt foods that i liked eating i was sick - pregnancy does strange things to the body. take care x

Godispeace - 2840 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) I know exactly how that feels, with my first pregnancy which was a boy, I went through the same thing, my stomach couldn't hold it in, it only happened on that pregnancy, why?? still wondering, not every pregnancy is the same, your body changes every time you're pregnant so this time you may have to use another type of milk other than cow's milk if that is what your drinking.

MelissaJoanne - 2840 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) You could be lactose intolerant. If it's not agreeing with your body, you should probably hold off on drinking it. Switch to an alternative such as rice milk, almond milk, or soy milk. You can be tested for lactose intolerance. It is possible that it will only disagree with you during the pregnancy, and you'll be able to drink is again after you've given birth.

gr8scottswife - 2840 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) I have that same milk problem. It's actually an allergy. My whole mouth would dry up, and my stomach would hurt. I have gotten it with both pregnancies. However, just in the past week I have been able to drink a little bit. I don't know why. I just couldn't resist ice cream, which is how I found out I could drink it again this past week (18 weeks). Hopefully, it will go away with you, too. I have had several foods that have turned me off, tastewise, or they hurt my stomach, such as nuts. That's just due to pregnancy hormones. Best wishes.

Debra - 2840 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) normal. I love broccoli normally and I couldn't stand it during pregnancy. My coffee tasted funny as well- it was the caffeine that bothered me. During my sister's pregnancies she craved chocolate with her second and now he hates chocolate, her third baby she couldn't eat enough mandarin oranges and now he hates mandarins

RandiLee - 2840 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) Same thing happened to me early in my pregnancy...but it ended up going away, thank god.....I <3 milk!!

agonzales - 2840 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) That happens during pregnancy. Sometimes you'll start liking something you never did before and sometimes you'll hate something you've always loved in the past. With my first pregnancy I started to like mayonaise when I never even liked it before being pregnant. I always liked hot chicken wings and with this pregnancy I cant even stand to think about them. The smell just makes me nauseated.

slg3233 - 2840 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) The baby probably doesn't agree with it because when i was pregnant with my 1st child, I tried to eat Church's Chicken (I love it)I couldn't because I would get sick afterwards because my baby didn't like it but after I had her I could eat it all I wanted. And she is now 2 years old and loves all chicken, so maybe your baby will love milk and that is a good thing.

monica9 - 2840 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) You can be tested for lacotse intolerance, they thought i had it b/c i got sick only when i had dairy. I ended up just having a stomach bug but you never know with pregnancy

2xmom - 2840 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) When you're pregnant your body does weird things! Sometimes you crave things that you don't normally like. Sometimes you hate things you usually like. It's all hormones. They say you're body will let you know what you need, or don't need. It's not the baby telling you that, just your own body.

stephandisaac - 2840 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) That happened to me with just about everything that I loved with this last pregnancy. I couldn't drink my coffee or Iced tea, even water made me sick. Food was also really bad for the first 6 months. I hate morning sickness...glad that parts over :)
