you can also google chronic fatigue and magnesium and find some papers and discussions about that. i printed some recently for my grandmother.
your old calcium shd. be fine. you just have to experiment and be observant with regard to dose and timing.
in addition to a diet full of veggies of all colors, especially green (magnesium), eperiment with 400 to 500 mg of magnesium, or more if necessary. and i take 500 or 600 mg of calcium in addition to daily yogurt and leafy greens (not together!)
magnesium helps you absorb the calcium (along with vit D, you may get enough of that from sun, or cod liver oil, or mushrooms, in the winter)
calcium contracts the muscles, magnesium smoothes and relaxes them.
as far as baby getting some of that relaxing magnesium, they say that breastmilk is fairly uniform worldwide, but if thay can react to broccoli or chocolate in the milk, why not magnesium?
if you google magnesium you will find some lists of magnesium rich foods, too. wheat germ and avacado are both very high.
let us know how it goes.
