OMG! I cant believe I just did this!

I just drank expired milk from four days ago! Am I going to be ok? I am also 20 weeks pregnant and that just really sucks! I am trying to eat some crackers to kind of soak it up. Will that work?

  • If it did not taste bad or have a funky odor you will be fine! Those dates are an estimate! Don't panic everything will be fine!

  • Sorry I am just one of those people that will not eat or drink anything past the experation date. I am just that paranoid!

  • Big deal.

  • If there was anything even remotely bad about the milk, your super pregnancy nose and taste buds would have made you spit it out.

  • Yes I agree with amileegirl, you would have noticed immediately and spit it out. I am sure it wasn't bad. If you taste something funky you spit it out. Don't worry about it mama. (Although I totally understand your paranoia. I don't drink milk AT ALL, and I am very cautious when it comes to expiration dates when I give my son milk!!)

  • My Dad is a milkman and he brings expired milk home and drinks it ONLY if it smells ok. If it doesn't taste ok then spit it out. lol
    I'm sure you will be fine!!
