Does anyone know if it's possible to develop lactose intolerance while pregnant?
i've never been a HUGE dairy consumer (love milk w/b'fast, but that's about it), but have never in my life had issues with dairy-related tummy trouble. However, this 2nd pregnancy, i get to about week 13 (having felt pretty good) and it seems like every time i consume milk, yogurt (which i'm trying to make myself eat more of), or something with cheese i'm running to the bathroom minutes later. Unfortunately, it's so hot all i really want to eat is cold stuff, namely cereal. So i took a mini dairy fast over the weekend and slowly started feeling better. Then tonight we had a casserole with cheese and crm of mushroom soup, and i'm sick all over again...
Is this the weirdest thing ever? Anyone have any insight?

Oh well...
whatever it is/was, it seems to have passed or at least backed off.

I seemed to have that too, and it also passed, which I'm really glad for. My mom wasn't sure if it was pregnancy related.

I have it with every pregnancy. I can handle cheese but that's it. All other dairy makes me vomit. It goes away as soon as the baby's born.

I'm the exact opposite. I'm generally lactose intolerant except when I'm pregnant. Finally I can eat yogurt!

I can offer some advice, as I have been lactose-intolerant since birth, but the only and only thing that I have found that actually workds is taking acidophilus. I take it twice a day, one with my am vitamins and one with my pm vitamins and if i know that I am going to be eating things like ice cream, yougart or cheese which really set me off, I 2 capsules about 10 minutes before eating the diary products and it really helps me. I will also take 2-3 if I have a stomach ache, gas or diarrhea and it has never let me down. I have tried lactaid, gas-ex, and everything else and nothing even touches the problem like acidophilus.

It also clears up yeast infections lickty-split:-)

I developed this in my first pregnancy-lo and behold dd is lactose intolerant. Anyway, she was born 5 years ago and I still cannot handle much dairy. Cheese is fine but milk and icecream have to be eaten in small amounts.
