welcome to healthcaremagic
in pregnancy you should have balanced healthy diet
you should talk to your treating doctor regarding your diet chart keeping in mind that your weight is 90 kg
eating chalk sticks may be source of calcium but it is not advised because of its impurities
stop eating chalk
take chewable calcium tablets instead
