Drink more milk … or drop it completely?
Hmmm, confusion city!
Item #56o434 on the jumbo list of things to do — and things not to do — while trying to conceive seems to be drinking and eating more milk products. Most websites/books recommend full-fat dairy products (i.e. not diet-y), even ice cream!
Makes sense. When I was little, I heard that if you ate a lot of dairy when you were preggers, you would have a girl — and spicy food landed you with a boy. Haha if only it was that cut-and-dry!
Buttttttt while researching, I found a ton of other websites/books/random internet-peeps who said dairy was totally evil while preggers. They were totally freaking about supposed toxins in milk, and said all of the same nutrients could be found in veggies.
What side of the fence am I on? Hmm, how about the side that encourages Peanut Buster Parfaits?
