  • The doc I had with my first told me to take what I needed to feel good. His oppinion was it's calcium and pregnant women need all of that they can get, me I needed it doubly so since I became lactose intolerant during both pregnancies.

  • You can, but eating a raw carrot and chewing each bite rather thoroughly is better for you and baby.
