    Hi All
    I was wondering if you could answer me something.

    I ONLY ever have skimmed milk. hate the taste of the rest. My manager was under the impression i should be having at least semi. Does anyone else no anything about this?

    nope you can have skimmed milk, the only difference is semi-skimmed or full fat contains fat which you probably getting enough of anyway :) I think you need about 4 glasses of skimed milk a day to get enough Vit D and Calcium

    I'm not sure how much we have to drink but there's certainly no harm in drinking a bit extra! I prefer skimmed milk too and i'm sure it's actually better for us as less fat in it yet the same amount of calcium.

    As Geordielass said, your due dates near ours, PM me if you want my mob number to keep in touch :)

    Id defo start drinking milk 1sstimemum i drink a lot of tea but i found out the calcium and vitamin d is diluted buy the tea so dosnt count.
    I love a cold glass of milk
    you could get your calcium from other sources
    Other dairy foods cheese, yoghuts
    Wholemeal bread, cereals,soya flour, backed beans, sesame seed,s dried figs and apricots, chick peas, spinach, french beans, parsely, kale, broccoli. So if you dont wont to drink to much milk then try these

    I dont think im entitled to these. do you have to already have been claiming some sort of benefit to get them?

    BabyBee, me too. Natural yoghurt with plum jam has to be one of the most gorgeous foods in the world, but none of that low fat crap.

    I normally love skimmed milk and find the others too rich, but since being pg I've found it too watery and gone onto semi skimmed!

    I'm drinking loads of milk at the moment, can't get enough of the stuff. Also got a big thing for Angel delight.

    In our fridge we have skimmed, semi-skimmed and whole milk :rotfl: I prefer whole milk, OH prefers skimmed so normally we comprimise and get semi-skimmed. But he took to getting skimmed too. And today I really wanted a lovely cold glass or two of whole milk.
    Maybe what we need is a cow :rotfl:
    My Angel Delight tip for everyone - when having people round for dinner, for a quick pudding that everyone will love make chocolate Angel Delight and pour it into ramicans to set. Then grate on some chocolate. Present it as home made chocolate mousse :D I prefer butterscotch but if you use it people realise it's Angel Delight.

    If people come round for dinner at mine they don't get anything as posh as ramekins :rotfl:

    I loved milk before i was PG but I've went from semi-skimmed to full milk as I just felt that semi-skimmed had such a funny taste to it. My OH is delighted as he always had fatty milk (as I like to call it) when he lived with his parents but I refused to buy it when we moved in last year.
