Cow milk drinkers- what % do you drink during pregnancy?

Just curious what pg mamas are drinking while pg. I don't drink a lot of milk normally, but right now I buy Whole milk for the family so that's what I drink too. I love the "local" milk one of our grocery stores carries- It's not homogenized so it has the creamy plug..

I never drank cow's milk, before or after pregnancy. But during pregnancy I had an intense craving for milk, the thicker the better.

I'm on wic and they only cover reduced fat milk (skim 1 or 2%) so I drink 2%. After I run out of wic milk I get whole. It tastes better and its not as processed as reduced fat. Also it's better for you.

I drink 2% which is what we always drink. I may buy whole milk for up to 6 months when transitioning from breast to milk but otherwise it is 2%. FWIW I'm not much of a milk drinker ever. I eat it on cereal and drink it with treats otherwise I'm drinking water - my favorite!

We drink local grass fed non-homogenized whole milk all the time so that is what I drink when pregnant too.

I drink 1% all the time, except when I run out and drink the kids whole milk.

We're on WIC too and only get 2%. But I would much rather have whole %.

Same here. I get Sweet Acidophilus Milk, though. I think it's 1%.
