Darn it, I hated taking calcium this past time. I had to take an extra 1200mg and that was in addition to the prenatals! I was going to check with my dr on this again anyway. Thanks for the article.

Extra Calcium May Prevent Hypertension Problems

Expectant mothers may be able to prevent potentially serious medical problems in themselves and their babies simply by boosting their daily calcium intake, says a new systematic review. Not only that, but pregnant women at greatest risk for these problems may benefit most from the extra calcium.
