Calcium intake, nursing and pregnant

I am currently pregnant, about 5 weeks, and my son is still nursing frequently. I read that during pregnancy you should get 1000mg of calcium per day, but I'd like to know if I need more and how much since I'm still breastfeeding.

Other than a regular pre natal I would discuss with your doctor before adding any other supplements.
Congratulations on your pregnancy!

ditto on what Mum said. You can also ask your pharmacist!
