Not while pregnant,but right after I gave birth. Horrible stomach cramps and diarrhea. I still can't tolerate it very well and my baby is 2.5 years old.

I did when I was pregnant with my Dd. This time I'm pregnant with a little boy, and I craved milk and dairy from the very beginning.

The most I crave now is ice cold milk lol. I'm not eating as much dairy as I was, so I think the craving is slowing down. Now, 3 months ago, I totally would've fought over the last gallon of milk at the store LOL.

I have had the opposite effect. Milk used to make me sick for a while, but now I cannot get enough! Weird changes our bodies go through, I guess.   :)

VERY normal!  Your digestion system slows down in pregnancy and it can cause all sorts of issues.  You can get Lactaid over the counter at nearly any store, it's safe in pregnancy.  Better yet you can try switching to unsweetened almond milk.  We just did recently and besides the almond flavor it's really no different! :)
