Can I Get Too Much Calcium During Pregnancy?

QUESTION

Dear Nutritionist,
My doctor told me that I need to take 1000 mg of calcium a day during my pregnancy. My prenatal vitamins only have 250 mg of it in them, so I bought calcium pills that are 500 mg each. I take one and a half a day with my prenatal. But I also drink a lot of milk, mostly a litre a day. Is this too much calcium?

Thank you.

Nutritional Advice for Men?

QUESTION

Dear Nutritionist,
Hi. I'm 31 years old, my husband and I are both planning to have kids soon. We've been trying for the last 3 months of our 3 year marriage to have a baby but unable to do so.

Question -- most articles refer to nutrition for women. Do you have any advise for men to assist women in conceiving? We would appreciate any information you may have.

Thanks.
