I did a search in the forums for soy milk and I found one thread from 2007, but didn't find much with regard to soy and pregnancy.
I have light soy milk in my coffee. I don't like the taste of regular milk. If I were to drink regular milk, it would have to be light or fat-free (again, a taste thing).
I'm not yet pregnant, but am slowly thinking about preparing my body for pregnancy and was wondering if it's okay for a developing fetus if I continue with soy. I don't drink copious amounts of it, and if I were to eat cereal, I would have light yoghurt made from cow's milk etc (the regular stuff) instead of milk.
I understand soy can be an allergen. I used to drink rice milk, but soy milk is easier to find in the US (this is not my native country).
If it's better to switch to regular milk (I'm not intolerant to it), should I do that? The reason I moved from animal milk in the first place was concerns over the rgbh (recombinant bovine growth hormone) they feed to cows.
If I switched to milk, I could do organic, but It would still have to be skim or fat-free milk. Or should it be regular milk (non-organic) to try and prevent allergies when they enter this world? I don't have any food allergies.
Also, what about coffee? Is coffee okay to drink while pregnant? It is after all, a drug. I do like my morning coffee, but I in the evenings I can drink herbal tea, water or juice.
Not pregnant, but thinking about it.
Thanks for your input.
