    If u are taking pregnancy vitamins u should be ok, as I'm sure they contain enough calcium. U can up ur yoghurt intake if u like them though, it can't hurt xx

    Have you tried adding it to stuff...like ovaltine or hot choc? Or even adding some fruit to make a smoothie...

    I'm not fussed on milk or fruit but when you blend then together it's quite nice :)

    I have exactly the same problem. I hate milk. I changed my pregnancy vitamins to senatogen to ensure it had calcium, cos the pregnacare one didn't.

    My midwife said to try and up the other sources of calcium like green leafy veg such as spinach. xxx

    I hate dirnking plain milk and I can't have milkshakes as diabetic because of high sugar content. I had no problems with my first baby he was fine and I never changed much in my diet sense I did try to eat more yogurts etc but failed half the time so I wouldn't worry to much about it as your taking supplements. I never even took them and had a healthy baby x

    I don't drink milk either because its disgusting and its actually pretty bad for u.

    And contrary to popular belief, a glass of milk isn't a good source of calcium. Its a good source of protein, but your body actually can't digest the calcium from it.

    Anyway. There's an alternative non-dairy calcium fortified milk called rice dream, which is delish.

    Also, green veg like broccoli is a great source of calcium :)
    Don't be worried about it hun. X
