lactose intolerance?

I am 37 weeks pregnant and have noticed the last couple weeks anytime I drink milk or eat yogurt ect. That I have horrible cramp like pains that go through tout my stomach and feel a lot of nausea... I have never had issues with dairy before, could this be from the pregnancy? Am I going to be able to go back to dairy when little man is born? Should I go see my Dr about this?

For this reasons I have been dairy free for  4 years. Best choice of my life.i lost weight my skin cleared up and my thyroid went back to normal. Contrary to popular belief you don't need it.  There could be a chance that your baby maybe allergic to it after birth.   I read a book called eat right 4 your blood type. My type is o- and it says no dairy.

I'd have to say it's from pregnancy but can't say ull be normal again after. I never had an issue with dairy till I got pregnant and this is now my third pregnancy and its worse now then its ever been. First it was just milk and ice cream now its other things like cheese. My stomach will hurt and cramp up I get extra saliva in my mouth an my throat starts to feel like I have a lump in it and it causes me to cough. I heard probiotics will help but I'm not gonna try it till after the baby's born.

Yeah pregnancy lactose intolerance is a thing. Like gestational diabetes. It usually goes away after baby is born.
