Milk is good for you when pregnant.  But you should have whole milk cuz the baby needs the fats and stuff in it.

Almond milk is okay. But if you cant do regular milk take calcium supplements also. Thats what i was told. Im lactose intolerant.

Almond milk is great. It still has all the calcium you need because they add it. Don't take a calcium supplement if you are getting a lot in your diet. That's a recipe for disaster, and by disaster,  I mean kidney stones.
