    here is the first article I had read on foods to eat/avoid while pregnant that mentioned soy...it's a pretty comprehensive list...and partway down is the part where it mentions soy. If you click on the word "soy" in that part of the list, it will lead you to additional info on soy research etc.

    Pregnant?* Congratulations!* Now what to eat and what to avoid -

      I drank 2% growing up, every single day. 1 cup in my fruit loops and 1 glass at dinner.

      Same now, except I've switched to 1%. And it's Special K or rice krispies instead of fruit loops lol.

      I love me my milk!!

      I figure everything I eat is bad for me these days, so why deny myself? LOL

        2% - I usually just have milk in my oatmeal in the morning. I really don't drink it.

          My trainer wants me to try Soy Milk b/c I am lactose intolerant ... but I just cant stomach it.

          I grew up drinking Vitamin D ... and still love it ... but now use 2% for cooking, etc.

          I rarely drink milk on its own ... but I LOVE dairy!!

            The information I read was in a packet I got from this Holistic Doctor that my Dad swears by. My Dad now has the packet so I don't have it on hand unfortunately... I found it really interesting though. I will ask my Dad for it next time I see him.

            P.S. It did NOT directly correlate to pregnancy, just general overall health.

              I bought some soy milk this weekend - vanilla flavored. It was okay... not my favorite. It tasted a bit ... uuhhh... chalky? My daughter drank it and didn't seem to mind though.

                I've been using the rice dream (organic original) in cereal for the past few days and it's pretty darn good. I still haven't opened the almond milk but I'll report back when I do :)

                  No milk for me, or anything dairy. I hate cheese, milk, butter. Love yogurt, wish I could tolerate ice cream but my tummy would never forgive me if I were to put too much dairy in it. It makes eating difficult at times, but you adjust.

                    organic non-fat pesticide and antibiotic and hormone free moo-moo milk. i dont believe that non-human milk is bad for humans. i just think its all the crap they put in milk that makes it bad for you. sure milk from a human would be best to digest but i dont know many wanting to put that on their cereal hahaha.

                    PLUS there is lots and lots of information out there about the importance of dairy in your diet and the fact that you burn more fat and calories with dairy in your diet when excercising then you do without it in your diet.
