Recently I started noticing that I cannot have any type of dairy. I never had this problem before It started with milk. I noticed if I drank a while glass of it I would get stomach pain or even sick. I noticed it with yogurt and cream cheese. I love my yogrut and bagel with cream cheese. 🙁 I even had some mac and cheese yesterday. Well today I’m getting sick and have the runs and had to call out. (Which I feel horrible about!!) Is this possible?
When I saw the OB last friday he told me to not drink the milk. Now I’m noticing other dairy products I can’t eat . Should I talk to the OB about this ? Did anyone else have the same problem as me? Please let me know I’m not alone.

it does happen unfortunately, I became allergic to mosquito bites when I was pregnant my foot swelled so much I couldn’t walk. It should just be temporary until maybe a few weeks after your baby is born, however if you are really worried about it or struggling with it at all then do talk to a doctor. Enjoy your pregnancy and remember to relax.

Mine was the opposite, im lactose intolerant and whilst pregnant i was able to ear dairy products- very very strange. It returned to normal after pregnancy, unfortunatley for me 🙁 but in your case that would be a good thing!

kreeneth : I was the same! I’m still fine with dairy but can’t have it right now because my son has a milk protein allergy.
Cait2007 : You could ask your doctor about Lactaid pills. I think I read they’re safe during pregnancy.

Same as kreeneth! I am lactose intolerant when I’m not pregnant. But when I’m knocked up, I can have as much ice cream and mozzarella cheese as I want! It goes back to normal after pregnancy though. Maybe the reverse is true too?

Cait2007 : I get lactose intolerant EVRYTIME I’m on my period. I really don’t know why, but as soon as it’s shark week, I can’t even eat a yoghurt without having stomach pain, cramps and… well. The even less nicer things.
Tell your doctor the next time you see him/her, but I’d not be concerned if I were you. There are plenty of options without any lactose in them.

I’ve had the opposite but with wheat. Wheat used to set off my ibs horribly and id be crippled with cramps and on the toilet for hours. Pregnant all I have wanted to eat is wheat and I’ve been fine! If I were you I’d cut out all dairy and replace it with dairy free options for pregnancy and then it will probably go back to normal after.

Thank you everyone ! Ok i don’t feel as bad now and strange. I guess everyone is different . Maybe I can try different milk options because I do love milk.just sucks i cannot eat yogurt. I would usually eat it everyday.

Cait2007 : I became full blown allergic to milk and anything made with milk in it when I was pregnant with my first. It sucks, nothing I can do about it except change my diet and be aware of what’s in the foods I want to eat.
I’m sorry this happened to you!! It is really bizarre and I had never heard of things like this happening before it happened to me.
eta: my allergy did not go away after pregnancy 🙁 if anything it’s gotten worse with my second pregnancy. I hope your intolerance disappears after you’re pregnancy!!

I’m 14 weeks pregnant with baby #1. I have developed a food sensitivity to pork, bell peppers (specifically red) and asparagus…foods I used to LOVE! Whenever I try to eat them the smell alone bugs me, and I can barely make it half way through the meal without throwing up.
I’m REALLY hoping this goes away post pregnancy!

This can definitely happen! My OB explained it to me in that it’s not so much that you become lactose intollerant, but that due to the hormones and other things happening in your body, you just become really sensitive to lactose. You’d go back to normal after pregnancy, just like others have mentioned, and it could even come and go during pregnancy. She suggested that instead of cutting it all out (you may have to supplement calcium or something if you do that), that I try just reducing the amount that I’m consuming, and so far that seems to have worked for me. I’m sure it would totally depend on the symptoms you’re having – but don’t worry! Just par for the course 🙂

This happened to me with my first pregnancy. To this day…8 yrs later I am still lactose intolerant. I can still eat cream cheese and regular cheese. But no milk, unless it’s lactose free and no icecream and very little butter. I have a very strong reaction to lactose, I get really nauseous and have horrible pain…worse pain then my 2 csections. Sometimes I feel like I’m dying. It can last anywhere from 30 mins to 3-4 hrs. It’s horrible to live with.
