  • well I had the exact same thing happen to me with my son; it's like it turns you lactose intolerant.... I couldn't tell you if it goes away or not, as I still get the super bad gas pains. I did find that if I bought the TG lee milk it wasn't as bad; but it still hurts. My son is not lactose intolerant though; I think it's just your body changing with the pregnancy. I am a HUGE milk drinker, so it is really hard for me...

  • Lactose is a gas producer....and since pregnancy already causes gas...you get it double and it hurts like hell. Try the chocolate silk soy milk...I made the switch to soy during pregnancy and haven't gone back.

  • I have a four year old and after having her milk has given me gas. Now that I am prego again milk makes it hard to sleep at night when I dont drink it at night I sleep fine and wake up with less body aches.
